Catch this sneak peek of the BlackBerry PlayBook
As we reported yesterday, during Rogers TabLife conference, RIM VP of Special Projects, David Neale, gave a demonstration of the "The world’s 1st professional tablet". Neale explained that the tablet he was showing off is a work in progress and is changing every day. The device does appear to have the TI OMAP 4440 under the hood, which makes the BlackBerry PlayBook pretty muscular.

The model seen on the video is not running a dual-core processor yet, which makes the smoothness of the video quite impressive. The browser used in the demo is the same WebKit based version used on the BlackBerry Torch, running through "a Flash compatible environment" although it is not yet optimized. Neale also showed off the "true" multitasking capabilities of the device, and while he did comment a few times that what he was presenting was an early version of PlayBook, his opinion of the tablet? "It is amazing," says the RIM executive. Anyone else agree?
