BlackBerry PlayBook vs iPad video shows BB web power

Web rendering test shows power of RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook

Despite having yet to announce an official launch date for its upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, Canadian tech giant RIM has had a pop at Apple as it pits its 7-inch tablet against the market leading iPad.

In an on-video head-to-head test, RIM has showcased the website rendering capabilities of its PlayBook device compared to the Apple iPad with positive results in favour of the BlackBerry branded unit.

As well as appearing to offer superior rendering skills to the iPad, RIM has pulled out the now standard trump card over any iOS run device, its ability to display Flash video content and websites. Whilst the inclusion of Flash is without a doubt a plus and much desired addition to any internet capable tablet, RIM’s video display appears slightly petty in its display of the well publicised Apple omission.

Announced last week to be prepping for launch with a sub $500 price tag, the BlackBerry PlayBook will sport a rear 5-megapixel camera with additional 3-megapixel front-facing snapper alongside a 7-inch multi-touch LCD display, 1GH dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM.

Are you tempted away from the dominant Apple iPad based on the specs and expectations of RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook? Share your tablet thoughts with us via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
