The new Blackberry Playbook tablet has a 7 inch LCD touch screen with a 1GHz dual core processor, a new O.S from blackberry, 1 GB of RAM and up to 64 GB of storage capacity. This new Playbook 4G model is the first Blackberry Playbook model to have wide area wireless connectivity including 4G. It also featured dual cameras that can be used capturing video or video conferencing purposes. The new 4G model will be released in the early quarter of 2011 all though most the features and specs will be the same as the regular one.
The 7 inch touch screen of the Blackberry Playbook looks quite brilliant with the display having crisp and bright colors. The performance of the touch screen is excellent. When using it, it feels very responsive with fast and smooth movements. Everything seems to glide along with the motion of the fingersEven though one might feel that the size of the screen could have been a little more, it is more than sufficient. You can get the Blackberry Playbook 4G in three different storage capacities of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB.
The dual core processor of the Blackberry Playbook 4G model makes the performance of the machine quite snappy. So as far as the performance part of this magnificent machine goes, you can be quite happy to know that you got quite a stable machine. Even though one might wish it to be the bigger, the size of the playbook is rather apt as it is fits nicely in pockets and suited for travelling purposes.
The Blackberry Playbook even has the perfect weight where it isn’t too heavy or too light. It has a rubber touch finish in the back side to provide better grip. Blackberries are quite iconic in having lots of little buttons on their products but this product does not need them and hence doesn’t have them. The Blackberry Playbook can even be synced with another blackberry device via Bluetooth for accessing information or files like important documents.
The new O.S is also very interesting. It actually doesn’t look like a standard blackberry product at first glance. The user interface is quite simple in design but it will take some time to go through the various apps and features. The price of the Blackberry Playbook 4G tablet hasn’t been confirmed yet but it is estimated to be around $500.
