BlackBerry PlayBook tablet makes its presence felt at CES

Research in Motion’s PlayBook on Friday was one of the products that gained huge applaud from crowds at the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

According to RIM, the PlayBook tablet computer has been designed keeping in mind the requirements of both consumers as well as enterprise users.

The PlayBook tablet has its own operating system, called QNX, which will provide people with an alternative to Windows and Android. The manufacturer claims that companies are so excited with the PlayBook that they are delaying plans to purchase the iPad.

The nice-looking PlayBook features a 7-inch LCD display, a dual-core 1GHz processor with a 1GB of RAM, which is four times more than the Apple iPad.

The PlayBook comes equipped with a 3MP front-facing camera and 5MP camera on the rear. It is capable of shooting in 1080p and streaming HD media out on a Micro HDMI port. Comparatively, the iPad has no built-in camera. While the iPad doesn’t support for Flash, the PlayBook supports not only HTML5 but Flash 10.1 also.

It is easy to handle as it is merely 0.4 inches in thickness and 0.9 pounds in weight.

The initial version of the PlayBook will be come with 16GB, 32GB and 64GB of internal storage.
