RIM BlackBerry Playbook: OS Multitasking Hands-on Video

For those of you who are interested in picking up the impressive-looking BlackBerry Playbook tablet from RIM next year, we have a pretty cool video for you to check out which gives you another glance at the BlackBerry Tablet OS and some of it’s capabilities.

The video comes to you courtesy of Engadget, who were able to shoot a brief-hands on video of the device with RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie. While we would have liked the video to be a bit more longer in length, we were definitely satisified seeing some of the multitasking features being touted on screen.

During the video we get a glimpse of the OS being able to handle various applications on the go, including running a BBC video in the background, which continues to run when you minimize it on the homepage. You’ll also see how applications are closed using a ‘flicking’ gesture, and a quick look at the on board camera with portrait mode.

It does look very slick indeed, and the more we see it, the more we think it is going to be another good contender to the Apple iPad. Check it out below and let us know your thoughts on the clip. Are you impressed with the Playbook so far?

Don’t forget about a pricing and release date update here.
