BlackPad: BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet - - Announced in September 2010; Now Expected to be Launhed in Q1-2011 (Must See Video)

The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, a device dubbed the “BlackPad” that represents RIM's foray into the tablet market, may launch in February or March of next year, RIM’s vice president of investor relations Edel Ebbs said on Thursday in a conference call.

Initially, the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet will be Wi-Fi only and have a “fast, powerful dual-core processor and full support for HTML5, JavaScript, WebWorks, Flash, and Adobe AIR,” Jim Balsillie, RIM’s co-CEO, said during the call, adding, “The PlayBook redefines what a tablet should do.”

According to tech blog Engadget, the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet will sport a 7-inch 1024 by 600 resolution multi-touch screen, run a 1GHz processor, have 1GB of RAM, with two cameras (3MP front-facing and 5MP rear-facing with video).

With its “BlackBerry” trademark, RIM is attempting to market the device as a more business-oriented device to the more leisure-oriented iPad, hoping to carve into Apple’s 95 percent share in the tablet market, according to ComputerWorld, which cited a Strategy Analytics report.
