With Microsoft slacking off in the tablet PC segment, one of the many tablets that are coming out this "sprummer" (stole this phrase from some car commericial) that I look forward to trying out is the BlackBerry PlayBook. Fortunately, the Canadian Smartphone giant, Research In Motion (RIM), makers of BlackBerry smartphones has announced the release date of their BlackBerry PlayBook device.
April 19, 2011 is the big date, only WiFi version is announced at this time. Prices starts at $499 for the 16GB WiFi version. Already available for pre-order at Futureshop.
The PlayBook is also supposed to be able to run apps off the Android market in addition to the BB AppWorld.
Here is preview of some of the features you will find on the PlayBook:
Here is a preview video on YouTube of a comparo test between the PlayBook and the original iPad from several months ago:
