Finally RIM has revealed the Playbook availability date. This is what BlackBerry’s Facebook status says today:
Don’t like waiting in line? Pre-order the PlayBook and it’s guaranteed to be yours on April 19! Head to Best Buy (U.S.) – http://tlk.tc/LV0 – or Best Buy Canada – http://tlk.tc/KV0 – to place your order today.
If you have not used a tablet before, its about time to start using a good one to begin with.
If you are an iPad user and you usually feel left out due to Flash sites breaking up when you visit them on browser, you should upgrade to Playbook instantly. See this comparison between the iPad and Playbook web experience.
RIM has already announced that Playbook apps will be distributed via App-World. Vendors have been given an interface for publishing apps for App-World already. Now we got to see a leaked shot of App-World running on RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook.
Unfortunately, not many details are available about the app-world.
RIM’s BlackBerry playbook tablet is creating news and RIM is fully geared to get more app developers working on playbook apps. To make that more exciting, RIM has announced a free Playbook for all developers who submit their apps to the app-world before the device launch.
Details of the free PlayBook give away are still not clear but you need to know how to upload these apps to App-World. Currently, publishers and partners have no way to do that. RIM is expected to announce the procedure of How to upload Playbook apps to App-World in their web-cast scheduled at 7pm GMT on Thursday, December 9th.
So if you are a developer and you are looking forward to learn how to submit your PlayBook apps to App-World, register forthis web-cast now and let’s see what RIM’s got scheduled for us in this web-cast.
Well this is pretty much following Apple’s footstep and launching a 7 inch tablet is really not very innovative but its a cool addition to the available tablet options. This is a very moderate start to announced the launch a very exciting product actually. BlackBerry lovers around the world are excited at the launch and we see some serious competition in the tablet market now.
It’s not only the devices but the BlackBerry tablet OS is also a big announcement at the BlackBerry Devcon in San Francisco today and those who’ve seen it are going crazy I can tell you.
The unveiling video clearly shows the camera capability, multi-tasking, flash in the browser and several other features that are definitely winning against the iPad. Though they are not the first ones to launch the lovable tablet, I’m sure they will definitely grab some market.
Features that really make me go WOW include the HDMI video output for presentations, movies and browsing, full 1080p video playback capability, dual camera for video and still photos and a dual core 1 GHz processor.
