Connectivity - Blackberry Playbook rivals iPad
The Blackberry Playbook can be synched with Blackberry smartphones to allow larger tablet display of email, calendars, tasks and documents. This connection is enabled via Bluetooth 2.1.
Blackberry’s tablet also supports WiFi (802.11 a/b/g/n) but lacks 3G. While RIM intends to offer 3G and 4G in the future, Apple’s iPad currently offers WiFi, 3G and Bluetooth 2.1.
Blackberry-maker Research in Motion (RIM) has launched its tablet, the Blackberry PlayBook. With RIM’s stronghold in the enterprise market, its new tablet looks set to build upon its corporate market position.
Available from the second quarter of 2011, pricing is yet to be announced. But how does the Playbook measure up to Apple’s iPad?
