BlackBerry PlayBook: Q&A

By Posted 22 Mar 2011, 20:45

We told you earlier that Research In Motion have officially announced the release date for the BlackBerry PlayBook, and it was now available for preorder from retailer Best Buy. We have some information for you if you are still undecided about the tablet.

An article over at guardian.co.uk has a question and answer about the upcoming new tablet. As the launch version of the tablet will be Wi-Fi only, it would be better if you also have a BlackBerry handset to make the most of the device.

Users will be able to use a secure Bluetooth connection to access many features of the device, and when the link is broken all data is immediately wiped.

RIM is expected to launch radio-enabled versions later this year, and will be compatible with WiMax, LTE and HSPA+ networks. These units will be able to connect to RIMs enterprise servers, if the carrier it is on requires it. Sprint has become the first network in the US to do this so far.

The tablet will be running a brand new operating system specially designed for tablets, and is said to handle multitasking really well. It will also support Flash as well as HTML5 so you are covered there.

Many people will undoubtedly buy a BlackBerry PlayBook, especially current BlackBerry handset owners. But it remains to be seen how many others will pick it over the iPad 2.

Will you buy the PlayBook?
