RIM BlackBerry Playbook Vs Apple iPad: Which Tablet Looks Better?

Now that you have had a few hours to gather your thoughts on RIM’s recently announced BlackBerry Playbook tablet, what are your initial impressions of it? On a design point of view, do you think it looks better than the iPad?

Unfortunately, RIM didn’t allow anyone to actually touch the device, as it was concealed behind reinforced glass the the BlackBerry Developer Conference.

However, we still managed to get a good look at the device, and it is confirmed to have a 7-inch 1024 x 600 capacitive touch screen, compared to the iPad’s 10-inch 1024×728 display screen.

Luckily for you, Engadget has offered some event photos, comparing size differences on the Playbook and the iPad. As you can see from the one below, the iPad is significantly larger than the PlayBook, but RIM’s tablet does seem to have that sexier look to it.

Does size or style matter to you the most? If it is style, then you would have to say the Playbook looks better. Take a look at Engadget’s pictures here and let us know your thoughts on them.

everyone copies apple. gates stole apps from apple, an admitted it, i use both systems, but for serious work apple every time..making more of something doesn't means it's better just that they make more.. why ride in a pinto when you can drive a Ferrari.

No 3G, Bluetooth pairing with a phone for connectivity is this a joke?

iPad wins… even IF they make a 10" Playbook.
Maybe Playbook is more professional and can do a lot more things than the iPad can. But on the other hand, iPad is made by Apple and so 1. They will attract a lot more consumers. 2. They have TONS of developers to make apps. So many developers are live on Apple, such as iFunia, a MAC video converter tools manufacturer, what awesome is they have being a strong link chain in the tablet industry.
The consumer market will stick with the iPad for now and long time in the future…
