BlackBerry Playbook Tablet: Will you buy on Release Date?

Following on from our report which put the recently announced BlackBerry Playbook up against the mighty Apple iPad, we want to know just how many of you have already decided to buy one.

If you didn’t know yet, RIM’s BlackBerry Playbook will be available in the early part of 2011 and will come equipped with a brand new operating system not seen on any of RIM’s current smartphones.

Key specs include a 7-inch multitouch display, dual-core 1Ghz processors, 1080p HD video recording, 5MP and 3MP front and back cameras, 1GB of RAM and HDMI output. Full spec details can be seen in our previous report here.

It is worth noting that RIM are calling it the ‘fastest tablet’ ever with the inclusion of the dual core processors, so we’ll be very interested to put that claim to the test at a later point.

The new tablet will also come with Flash 10.1 and HTML 5 support, so RIM has really gone for some high-level specs with their first tablet outing. We don’t think there will be too many of you disappointed that it won’t run on BlackBerry OS 6, since their brand new OS looks fantastic, it comes with multitasking too by the way.

Have you already decided to get one, or are you still undecided? Let us know!

Very much looking forward o launch of Playbook as it will be the perfect partner for my Torch 9800 which i have become very attached to.It's really made and the O/S 6.0 system works beautifully-not like my E75 which was always playing up.
