Less than half-an-inch thin and weighing under a pound, BlackBerry's PlayBook puts remarkable portability in a single powerful device that boasts a sleek, slim profile. Everything appears on the 7-inch LCD multi-touch capacitive screen, so you can swipe, select and scroll with a mere gesture of the hand. And it's not just about looks - the PlayBook houses a 1GHz dual core processor alongside 1GB RAM to give you full computing power in tablet format.
The user-friendly BlackBerry Tablet OS with support for symmetric multiprocessing makes everything easy to use. Easily type messages on the on-screen keyboard and get more done in less time with true multitasking. And with apps in constant development, there's no shortage in extended functionality.
The internet is about freedom and unrestricted access to information. The BlackBerry PlayBook was designed to let you experience that the way it was meant to be - with full support for Flash, HTML 5, and everything else a web without borders offers.
Video conferencing and shooting capabilities are second to none. With two HD cameras - one front-facing (3MP) and another on the back (5MP) - you can chat face to face with family, friends, coworkers and clients as well as shoot amazingly crisp video and images from the rear camera.
The PlayBook covers all the bases. It has micro-USB and micro-HDMI connectivity, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, push technology and more. And of course, it's enterprise-ready.
Capacitive touch screens work by sensing the conductive properties of an object, usually the skin on your fingertip. A capacitive screen on a tablet or Smartphone usually has a glass face and doesn't rely on pressure. This makes it more responsive than a resistive screen when it comes to gestures such as swiping and pinching.
