BlackBerry PlayBook in Development Looking Good Against Apple iPad


Video demonstration comparing BlackBerry PlayBook and iPad tablets in terms of browser speed, Adobe Flash support and HTML5 performance.

Video show PlayBook rendering web pages faster than an Apple iPad. It has a smaller display, but it runs Flash. Apple’s iPad doesn’t show a lot of content on some web pages because it doesn’t allow Adobe Flash to work in its iOS web browser.

The BlackBerry PlayBook is a tablet computer announced by Research In Motion (RIM) on September 27, 2010. The PlayBook is only 9.7 mm thick. The company expects to deliver the machine to enterprise customers and developers in October, and release it to consumers in early 2011. A new operating system, the BlackBerry Tablet OS, based on QNX Neutrino runs on the tablet. Also, interactive video is well supported with two HD video cameras for both forward and backward-facing views, 3MP and 5MP respectively. A micro-HDMI socket is provided for digital video output, and the screen and HDMI interface can display different images simultaneously.

The tablet is equipped with a 7″ WSVGA (1024×600) screen supporting multi-touch operation and gestures, in a form factor 5.1″ x 7.6″ x 0.4″ (130mm x 193mm x 10mm) weighing 0.9 lb (400g).
