RIM entered into the tablet market yesterday with its new PlayBook tablet device. The tablet will feature a 7-inch 1024 x 600 capacitive touch screen, 1GHz dual-core processor, HDMI output, along with front and rear cameras. It will not run on RIM’s BlackBerry OS 6 operation system, but a new OS from QNX. The PlayBook will come with enterprise compatibility, true multitasking, face-to-face video conferencing and Flash compatibility.
I am a blackberry user and I thin that blackberry applications and features sucks except the push email (thanks to RIM servers) and the blackberry messenger (BBM). comparing the available applications of blackberry to the existing ones of apple iPhone, The apple apps are by far better and more user friendly that Blackberry’s. So getting into this market will be tough for RIM as we (blackberry users) doesn’t want to own a larger edition of our existing devices ! the apps of the playbook needs to be so different than the current apps to compete with apple’s and Droid’s ..
