BlackBerry will soon be coming out with a product to compete with Apple’s iPad tablet computer. The RIM BlackBerry Playbook will be released soon tapping into a market that so far has been dominated by Apple. Designed by Research in Motion, this computer tablet has a 7 inch slate, a 1 GHz dual-core processor, and a QNX operating system. Amazon’s Kindle will also have compatible software for the Playbook available for no additional cost to customers.
Other names for this computer that were ultimately shot down included the BlackPad and the SurfBook. This product will most likely not be released until early 2011. As of right now, no price has been associated with the Playbook.
