The BlackBerry PlayBook was surely a sight for sore eyes at this year’s edition of CES and people are still talking about it. People that are anxious to know more about the release date of this device (or when they will be able to push this baby’s buttons, informally speaking) need not to worry as multiple sources have confirmed that the shiny new tablet will be available for purchase on the 10th of April. RIM already made a promise to make this tablet available on the market on the first quarter of 2011, like Engadget confirmed.
Those of you not aware of the beauty of this device ought to know that this tablet hosts a 7 inch display that comes with a 1024 x 600 pixels resolution and multi-touch capabilities. It features the BlackBerry Tablet operating system and a 1 GHZ dual-core processor. Hmm, dual-core tablet, how cool is this? Anyway, the processor goes hand-in-hand with the included 1 GB of RAM to offer great multitasking possibilities to users interested in performing more than one task at a time. The lovely part is the 3 MP front facing camera which is bound to offers high quality images during video-calling. Combined with the 5 MP camera on the back, it is safe to say you have not one, but 2 HD cameras capable or recording HD videos at 1080p.
The HDMI port will turn out to be useful when you want to visualize pictures and video on a high-definition TV and enjoy them at a much better quality. There is a microHDMI port available, wireless and Bluetooth included and you also get a lot of application support for software like Abode Flash Player 10.1, Adobe Reader, Java, Open GL and many more. The dimensions of the device are 5.1 x 7.6 x 0.4 inches and it comes with a total weight of 400 grams.
