Latest sneak preview of the BlackBerry PlayBook pops up on YouTube
RIM gets the thumbs up for treating us to another video of the BlackBerry PlayBook in action. The latest addition to the BlackBerry channel on YouTube shows compiled footage from the March 1 BlackBerry event in New York City. Kindly enough, RIM allowed BlackBerry enthusiasts and tech experts to get up-close and personal with its upcoming PlayBook tablet, probably in order to get some real world feedback and spark even more interest in the device.

From what we hear in the promo, people seem to be praising the BlackBerry tablet for its seamless performance and fluid multitasking experience. We even get to see some gaming action going on – car racing games, 3D action shooters, all the good stuff. Looks like we will not be disappointed once we get our hands on a BlackBerry PlayBook, hopefully within the next month. Check out the video below and feel free to let us know what you think in the comments.

The commercial is not even near convincing. The screen seems really petite when compared to the Apples iPad 2. The whole presentation just isn't as good as Apples. I, personally, don't think the PlayBook can fight against Honeycomb 3.0 and iPad 2.

Wow that was one douchey and uninformative commercial! Looks like Blackberry is trying to copy the techniques of the master propaganda machine...Apple.

For a win, it will come down to how much software can run fast on the PlayBook. Supposedly, the PlayBook can run the full collection of Android apps. If the Android apps can run at the same speed on the PlayBook as they can on native Android, the PlayBook has an even shot along with the rest of the Android tablets. If not, things start to look grim for RIM. RIM's corporate and government customers are not going to be adding a PlayBook for everyone of the RIM handsets in use.
