Companies in Tablet market are either waiting for the Android 3.0 or slowly gearing up to launch their devices globally. RIM ( BlackBerry) is no exception from this. Since the day company has revealed its tablet device “PlayBook”, which will run on its own OS, people are predicting to see something new from company, especially the corporate houses who are always been the prime focused for the RIM. Yesterday RIM has showcased the live demo of upcoming “PlayBook” at Adobe MAX.
Like Apple, RIM’s PlayBook will be running on Blackberry Tablet OS, developed by the company itself. Many other proposed tablets in the market from various companies like Samsung, LG, HTC are dependent on Android or Windows 7. Loaded with 1 Ghz dual-core processor and 1 GB RAM, PlayBook seems to be RIM’s most ambitious project from the market share point of view.
If I go by the first ever live demo of PlayBook, I feel company need to work hard with UI as it doesn’t seems to be as smooth as Galaxy Tab or iPad. Company also needs to justify its cost against the Apple’s upcoming iPad 2.0 which sits on price tag of just $399. While company need to consider many other technical and non-technical factor before the launch of PlayBook, price war has already been initiated by the Apple after sensing the huge potential in Tablet device market.
By all the means, making assumptions on below video, I feel PlayBook is surely going to make its mark in the tablet device market:
