BlackBerry Playbook: Live Video Demo Increases RIM Shares

By Alan Ng - Oct 27, 2010

For those of you who are still undecided on whether or not to pick up the BlackBerry Playbook tablet next year, RIM and Adobe has released a new video, showing off the tablet in a live unseen stage demo.

As reported from Engadget, the 5-minute segment shows RIM co-CEO Mike Lazaridis and Adobe’s Kevin Lynch showing off some of the Playbook’s new features at Adobe MAX yesterday.

Engadget point out that the video seems to have been carefully edited, which may have removed some uncomfortable performance issues on the Playbook, but since the device isn’t due out until early next year, it gives RIM and their team plenty of time to fix it up ready for public release.

Following on from this demo release, a new report by the Financial Post has revealed that RIM’s shares have increased in the space of a few hours – you can read more on this in their article above.

What are your thoughts on the Playbook? Is it a day-one purchase for you, or are you still undecided? Video is below.

  • Okay, did apple's PR team stage this? Really, was the applause staged?

    Canadians should not say "it's hot", cause it's not!

    "…RIM and Adobe has released a new video…" Should be "have", not "has". Plural anyone?
