Up until yesterday, the tablet everyone thought Blackberry was going to come out with was the Blackberry Blackpad.
But lo and behold, they changed things up on us and announced the new Blackberry Playbook tablet.
The Blackberry Playbook is being touted as the first multi-demensional, enterprise ready tablet on the market.
Now I’m not too sure about that statement because wasn’t the iPad the first “everything tablet”, or even the first tablet for that matter, in the market place?
In fact, didn’t the iPad actually create the tablet market?
Anyway, below you’ll find the Blackberry Playbook specs, a promo video, and some images:
