After months of speculation Research in Motion, known as the maker of Blackberry phones earlier this month officially announced a tablet computer to be aimed at the business market. The 7-inch tablet gets a surprisingly playful name: Playbook.
The specifications of the playbook are promising: a multi touch screen 1024 × 600, 1 Ghz Dual Core processor, 1 GB of RAM and two cameras: 3 megapixels on the front, 5 megapixels in the back. There is a USB port and HDMI built in and the icing on the cake, the playbook easily handle Flash videos and websites. Each point of the device surpasses the iPad.
Actually, there seems little to vent about the playbook. The only major deficiency is the lack of 3G. The playbook connects via WiFi to the Internet or by using the compound of a BlackBerry device. The small number and limited quality of Apps for Blackberry OS can hardly be called a deficiency. Indeed, business users have better things to do than play Angry Birds. Secure connections, business tools and integration into corporate networks is more important for a business tablet and let it just be where RIM excels.
More surprising is that the first promo of the play book mainly focuses on photos, videos, music and other trivialities where business people tend to ignore. The big advantage that RIM has is many corporate networks are completely setup and are accessible for Blackberry devices. Thus the Blackberry Playbook is received by many system administrators with open arms.
The Blackberry Playbook is not built for the masses unlike it's rival iPad. Instead it's purely aimed at business people in a corporate environment. Playbook makers have plenty time to develop and shape a marketing strategy as the Playbook is expected to arrive first quarter of 2011. Apple seems to have enough time to come up with an iPad 2.0 Steve Jobs seemed not impressed with the device, he called it: 'LackLuster RIM Job'
