Future BlackBerry Devices

RIM have grabbed a big slice of the smartphone market with their range of BlackBerry handsets over the years. They are as it seems constantly upgrading their smartphones with second or third series version. Take the Storm and the Storm 2 for example. And most recently it would seem the BlackBerry Playbook tablet is around the corner which would give RIM a take on the mobile tablet market competing against the likes of the Apple iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Actually the BlackBerry Playbook is already here. RIM say that the Playbook is more secure and want to position it as a more professional device. Other great features are its ability to play flash something Apple are still in a tiff with Adobe over or something.

Some BlackBerry Playbook Tablet specs are a 7 "(1024 Ã 600), dual-core processor. Support for H.264 video, MPEG4, and WMV with 1080p Full HD video display. 1GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB RAM, micro-HDMI outputs with 2 cameras front and back (3MP) and rear (5MP). Blazing 4G speeds over Wi-Fi and support for WebKit, Java, Open GL, Flash 10.1 and micro-USB connector. But RIM are promoting the Playbooks support for "multitasking" and can run Flash 10.1, which means "a full web experience".
