The interesting story about the upcoming release of Blackberry PlayBook on Theage prompts me to read from the beginning till the end.

The video at the top of Theage article gives a clear picture of the appearances and performance of the new device. In this clip, Mike Lazaridis, president and co-chief executive of Research in Motions, confirms that this innovative media device is ‘the world’s first professional tablet’. He also adds that ‘it’s ultra-mobile and ultra-thin’ . These statements lead to two questions. First, what are the professional characteristics of the device? Second, what benefits can the utility, performance, and portability of the device bring to users?

An article on News Live provides a clear demonstration on the professional feature of this device. Specifically, compared to Apple’s iPad, Blackberry’s PlayBook can run successfully on Adobe’s Flash. PlayBook also offers micro-USB ports and micro HDMI.

Alexander Grundner’s article on eHomeupgrade has a deeper look on the mobility and portability of the device. Grundner states that the tablet can connect to a BlackBerry handset to manipulate and sync data between the two devices. According to the article, PlayBook has 7-inch high resolution screen with a 1024×600 WSVGA capacitive touchscreen, multi-touch gesture support, HDMI-out, 1080p HD video playback, 802.11n Wi-Fi (3G/4G future), dual-core 1Ghz processor, 1GB of RAM, and dual HD cameras (3MP front, 5MP rear) with support for 1080p HD video recording.
