RIM shows off security features of Blackberry Playbook

Research in Motion (RIM) has been showing off its tablet device, the Blackberry Playbook as a business gadget.

And who can blame it? As a manufacturer that carved a stronghold in the mobile market with its secure architecture for enterprises, showing off some security features of the tablet device is pretty crucial.

But will the Playbook with its snazzy security features entice consumers over enterprise users? Gaining ground in the consumer market is ever-increasingly important for manufacturers to hold on to leadership positions in the professional market.

Having released a demo video of the new tablet, it demonstrates how email can be paired with a Blackberry smartphone via Blackberry Bridge.

It also shows multi-tasking, viewing Microsoft Office documents and secure access to business applications, including Flash-enabled dashboards from SAP BusinessObjects Explorer. See below:
