BlackBerry PlayBook: New Rival to iPad?

BlackBerry released a promotional video on their new PlayBook due early next year.  Samsung is also releasing the Galaxy Tab, which is also poised to be an Apple iPad competitor.

Here's a preview of the BlackBerry PlayBook.  What do you think about it?

Cris said...

It seems better as the ipad in all point. Im following u :D

Drackar said...

It's got potential, but i'm not so sure i'd like owning a large scale device dependent on blackberry software. I've just never been a real fan of the system.

ShredGuitar said...

Very nice!

Deep Thought said...

NO..

Hotsaucer said...

It looks awesome. I'm glad other companies are going after the piece of shit iPad.

Djoni Vejn said...

nice video

Naj said...

the playbook has a high specs compare to the ipad and galaxy tab. the only problem about those is the price.

AnbuJustin said...

snoobyy said...

Biff Tanner said...

Clox said...

Wow this looks interesting. It'll be cool to see if it stands up to the iPad or not.

Aristo said...

Christ, i feel as if i live under a rock.. I've STILL never owned an Ipad (and anything else "Istuff(tm)"

And now there's even new stuff that might become the new hip item?

shirou said...

About 2 weeks back I was gonna get a Archos internet pad, but then did some research and saw the Samsung one, Im pretty focused on getting that one as of now, but this black berry one looks pretty amazing. I dont know what to pick, so many choices!

Joshua said...

I want one :(

divx said...

idk, iphone 4 is awesome.
great post

Piripi Anxo said...

we will see...

Dungeoneer said...

I'm not really familiar with BlackBerry, but I believe that Galaxy Tab will outperform iPad, although it will NEVER outsell it.

DongAlong said...

All they did was bite an idea. What they should have done is make a foldable screen.

Mr. Black said...

Fascinating, I wonder how well it will compete in the market! It looks good.

Thanks for the post and continuing support!

Bal said...

At least RIM isn't giving up!

BLUERAD said...

I think its going to be pretty good for RIM. Basically it has everything the IPAD can't do, and its functionality is really good with other blackberries too. Overall, i'm not sure if it will click.. But we'll have to wait and see, thats because I have never really used any of Blackberry's products but a lot of my friends and my whole family is using it except me

Crunky said...

I think i'm going with the kindle

David said...

NIce man :d

armaman said...

hmmmmmmm. i'd buy it.

Come At Me Bro said...

This is great!

Nigma said...

Hey, just wanted to tell you that my blog has a new URL so check it out!

jj_srk said...

i doubt it'll really compete though... the usability of black berry products is def not the easiest out there

Slinky Shaun said...

iPad is like 5 years late, it deserves no sales, Apple could do much better in my opinion.

ramrod360 said...

I hear this one is alright, The samsung galaxy is suppose to be the best.

Eferhilda said...

I have to say that this is definitely making me not waste my time trying to save up for an ipad. Just going to either get this when it comes out or one of the Android driven ones. Something that lets me do more then one thing at a time. Thanks for the awesome info yet again.

Identity Withheld said...

I have high hopes, can't wait to see this when it releases

DailyTechnician said...

Wii does motion stuffs, then the other consoles join in. Now the computer companies are doing the copy/paste game....

deviants0ul said...

Great post man. Keep in touch... Look forward to more.

Keki said...

I doubt it would because apple already has a strong userbase.
Who knows!

Rubix said...

i like it. keep in touch. i cant wait for your next post.

Hydrogenous said...

Never quite saw the appeal of tablets until I got hooked on Android!

SCHWARTZ said...

I guess...

Pig Disgusting said...

i thought the iPad sucked donkey balls, now we need another tablet?

i dont really understand them. why not just get a laptop or netbook.

jester said...

Looks cool but they are so impractical for 95% of the population. I'll stick with my IPhone.

However, if it ever came down to me requiring a tablet, it'd come down to the specs for sure. I am not brand bias.

Splash87 said...

More competition is always good!

Ragina Vash said...

I love it, looks great!

SaltyThePirate said...

the only great thing about the ipad is the option to get one that has 3g capabilities. very useful.

Bryan Merritt said...

I think the iPad needs some good competition, and this is certainly it! Good post!

Skeezy D. said...

That looks nice

fat daddy said...

People seem to want things like this. Not sure why, but they do.

The Dandy Post said...

What I'm really looking for is the android tablet...

Lemmiwinks said...

Great post, bra!

Falling Down said...

I could never buy an iPad, but these new tablets look like powerful gadgets. Thanks for posting this.

Jed Browne said...

If they stuck an Apple emblem on the back of this it would have way more cool factor.

anontcotrol said...

I would prefer this to the ipad

Dungeoneer said...

YOu know, Apple has already sold more than enough iPads, so these new tablets wont be real competitors..

AnnoNeuvo said...

I'll just stick to my computer... :P

The Angry Vegetarian said...

Looks interesting. I only wish the preview was a bit more literal, though. I know we'll see better demonstrations later on.
