Blackberry Playbook is Here!

Huh?, I know I am bit late to announce this. But I was kinda doing some research on the Playbook,trying to find out how actually is the Blackberry Playbook better then the its competitors viz., Samsung Galaxy Tab, Motorola Xoom, Apple iPad and of course lets not forget HTC Flyer.

Apart from these there are of course some other tablets from Acer, Asus, Panasonic, Lenovo, LG etc.

Now, lets have a look at the features of Blackberry Playbook:

There is of course something missing, Playbook does not support 3G data connectivity. You can go online only via WiFi. The same is with Samsung Galaxy Tab, it runs on Android 2.2(Froyo).

Blackberry Playbook on the other hand is powered by its own OS. The Blackberry OS designed for its tablets.

Motorola Xoom comes with a 3G sim slot. But it is way more expensive for that tiny little feature, not to forget its screen size is 10.1 inch. But Xoom is powered by Android 3.1(HoneyComb), this is the first OS by Android specifically designed for Tablets. So its just going to make your tablet experience more enjoyable and easy.

Playbook is priced at 16GB – $499, 32GB – $599 and 64GB – $699.

Whereas Motorola Xoom is priced at $799 without any Verizon plans.

I guess that it with the Blackberry Playbook. Its seems quite competitive. But since its on a new OS, we’ll have to wait for reviews of OS as well and some time (to detect bugs) before we can jump into Playbook.

On another note, I came across a cool new advertisement for Playbook by Carphone Warehouse. Here is the video on YouTube:

Now keep your eyes on his hand and don’t blame me if your brain explodes.

Its a really cool new approach that brings out the features of Playbook and at the same time keep you entertained throughout the video.
