BlackBerry's very own Pad-a-like has landed.

The next round of the iPad vs. The World begins as RIM's own contender steps into the ring: The BlackBerry PlayBook.

The BlackBerry Playbook was launched at the BlackBerry developer conference in San Francisco, and has certainly done its homework on its Apple competitor, packing a full compliment of features including Flash support and front-and-back-facing cameras.

So, an iPad-beater? We'll have to wait until one wings its way over to T3 Towers for some rigorous testing to answer that definitively. But until then, take a sneak peek at the PlayBook in our gallery.
