BlackBerry Playbook Goes up Against the iPad on Video

Posted on 16 November 2010 By Ben Lang


playbookRIM has posted an official video on their BlackBerry YouTube channel and does a brief web browsing comparison with the Playbook [tracking page] and iPad [tracking page] side-by-side. It’s good to see the PlayBook in the flesh rather than as a pre-rendered animation as it’s been seen up until now. Naturally, the BlackBerry PlayBook blows the iPad out of the water (otherwise they wouldn’t have shown it). But like a movie trailer, videos like this can make something look much better than it actually is. I’m not saying the PlayBook doesn’t appear to be performing well, but they were obviously selective about their tests. Check out the video below:

    I sure hope the Playbook would be faster because of the dual core CPU and 1 GB of RAM compared to the iPad’s single core CPU and 256 MB of ram. It will be interesting to see what kind of multimedia file support the Playbook will have. I like the idea of flash being present because I currently have a iPad and hate when I go to a site that has flash that I can’t view.
