Description

RIM BlackBerry 4G PlayBook is the LTE enabled version of the BlackBerry PlayBook which is introduced as the first "professional tablet" keeping with the BlackBerry's heavy usage in the business world. The specs are hot enough to interest both consumers and business users. The PlayBook features a 7 inch capacitive LCD display with resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. Instead of the new BlackBerry 6 OS, a new tablet version of the BlackBerry software devised by the QNX is running the show. The tablet will have some power under the hood with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM on board. There are two cameras. The front facing shooter is 3MP with a 5MP on back.
