Blackberry Tablet announced

by OrionsVantage    Sep 27, 2010, 3:47 PM

from BGR:

"Today, at the BlackBerry Developer Conference (DevCon), RIM CEO Mike Lazaridis announced the BlackBerry Playbook. The PlayBook has a 7-inch hi-res widescreen display, is 9.7 mm thick, supports Flash 10.1 with hardware accelerated video, HTML 5, 1080p video, has non-proprietary HDMI and USB connections, full-HD front and rear-facing camera, support for dual-displays (with use of HDMI cable), will be able to connect with BlackBerry Enterprise Servers out of the box via Bluetooth secure pairing to BlackBerry. The device will have a 1 GHz dual-core processor (with symmetrical multiprocessing capabilities) and 1 GB RAM."

Technically speaking, looks like a pretty decent device. No mention of what carrier (if any) it would be released on. Flash on a RIM device is a pretty intereting bit of info seeing as the only devices that have flash are advanced Android handsets. It will also be interesting how the "Black Tab" will hold up next to the iPad and the Samsung Galaxy tab.
