RIM BlackBerry PlayBook now on sale in U.S and Canada

RIM’s venture into the tablet world, the BlackBerry PlayBook, is now available to purchase at stores throughout the U.S. and Canada. At launch, the PlayBook is available in three capacities: 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB. Sporting a 7-inch screen and a dual-core, 1GHz processor, the PlayBook runs RIM’s new BlackBerry Tablet OS based on QNX. RIM touts the browser as having all of the capabilities of a desktop browser, including full Adobe Flash Player support. The PlayBook also has a 5 megapixel camera on the back and a 3 megapixel camera on the front. Both cameras can record high-definition video at 1080p resolution. The PlayBook is available at a host of retailers across the U.S. and Canada. Best Buy, Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, and Sears all make the short-list. Customers can purchase the PlayBook in three different storage capacities: the 16GB costs $499, the 32GB $599, and the 64GB $699. All three versions are Wi-Fi-only; 3G and 4G-enabled editions are said to be coming later this year.” via mobileburn.com
