Blackberry Playbook Preview & Specs

BlackBerry has officially announced it’s 7-inch tablet known as the Blackberry PlayBook. The hardware specs look absolutely great with a 7 inch 1024×600 WSVGA capacitive LCD touchscreen that has full multi-touch and gesture support, a 1GHz dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor and 1GB of RAM. There are two HD cameras with the front facing being of 3MP and the rear facing one being a 5MP one.

There’s no word on the graphics processor however there’s 1080p HD video support for recording so there’s going to be a good count of pixel shader arrays. The certain fact is that ARM’s own MALI is being ditched for a higher and more efficient graphics processor.

The PlayBook uses BlackBerry’s new Tablet OS which is based on QNX and supports symmetric multiprocessing. Built on the QNX Neutrino architecture, the Tablet OS inherits it’s reliability, security and robustness while being POSIX certified.

POSIX compliance implies that the OS is compatible with Linux and Mac OS which reduces the cost of porting apps especially open source ones like Webkit and keeping the ports up to date. It runs a Webkit based browser that supports HTML 5 and also includes Adobe Flash Player 10.1, Adobe Mobile AIR, Adobe Reader and Java Virtual Machine.

The OS includes the next-generation Java VM that promises incredible performance along with Full OpenGL support to offer an incredible gaming platform and experience. On the media front, the PlayBook can manage 1080p HD Video, H.264, MPEG, DivX, WMV playback along with the usual MP3, AAC and WMA.

On the ports front, the PlayBook has an HDMI video output via a microHDMI port, a microUSB port and a charging port. Connectivity is provided by 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR and 3G/4G. The storage capacity would be inbuilt with a choice of 16 GB or 32 GB. Given the list of features, the heavy processing will still get us a battery life of an extended day to make things stress free. We already know that BlackBerry uses the network very frugally by aggressively cutting on the traffic and frequency of use so a decent battery life can be easily expected out of the PlayBook.

The PlayBook is expected to be available in retail outlets and other channels in the United States in early 2011 while other international markets will have to wait till the second half of next year to get the PlayBook.
