    BlackBerry PlayBook Get Reviewed In the Wild



    If you've been waiting to see the PlayBook in action, today is your day. RIM demoed the web browser versus an iPad today. Of course, the PlayBook has working Flash, as well as full JavaScript and HTML5 support. It also is faster than the iPad in the video test. One of the main criticism we have heard of the PlayBook is that there isn't any working models in existence. Today, Jim Balsillie (co-CEO at RIM) showed the OS working on video and it looks amazing. Watch the videos below for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments.

    BlackBerry PlayBook Get Reviewed In the Wild


    Looks like Mobility Insider got their hands on a BlackBerry PlayBook and reviewed it. The question is whether or not this is an early build or a production build. They apparently are going to post a longer video in the future so we will have to see what else they show that has not been shown already.

    Here is their summary of the review:

    The BlackBerry Playbook is the iPad contender. If you are currently a BlackBerry user, the fact you can soon get a tablet that offers better all around specs and features without additional data plan equals slam dunk. If not a BlackBerry user, you still have more to gain from this device and data options outside of WiFi only. Since this Tablet comes “Enterprise Ready” out of the box, expect it to take the Enterprise world by storm. So many companies are toying with the idea of how to release iPads (and now Android tablets) into their environment with all the security risks and lack of control. IT can finally breathe with a secure tablet coming out, leveraging RIM’s best-in-class security platform and control.

    I'm sure Jobs is going to shoot back with RIM somehow fixed the ipad to work that way.

    I will say though, the playbook is getting more impressive each day!!!
