Blackberry Playbook demo at CES 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
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n
  • 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.
