Blackberry Playbook demo at CES 2011
January 16, 2011
I’ve known about the Blackberry Tablet,
Playbook, for a long time now.
Don’t know why I never blogged about it, especially considering the fact that it’s the only non-Android, non-iOS , tablet out there.
What reminded me was this video of the Playbook demo at CES 2011.
The display looks great, the form-factor seems about the right size and it has compatibility with the Blackberry Enterprise Server.
That should be a big deal for existing Blackberry users.
Some of the other features of this tablet are :
Multitouch Capacitive touch screen
1 GHz TI OMAP 4430-based ARM Cortex A9 dual-core processor
1 GB RAM
QNX-based Blackberry Tablet OS Adobe Flash 10.1
Support for HTML5
3G as well as 4G network access
5 MP rear-facing and 3MP front-facing camera
1080p Full HD video output
Seamless pairing with your Blackberry smartphone
Compatibility with Blackberry Enterprise Server
Here’s another demo by the BGR guys, which shows of the capabilities of the device in more detail.
