RIM has finally unveiled their very own tablet — the BlackBerry Playbook, which they dubbed as the first multiprocessing, multi-tasking professional tablet.

BlackBerry Tablet OS
Cortex A9 1GHz dual-core CPU

The Playbook is just 9.7mm thick and weighs about 0.9lb (400g). It will have support for WebKit/HTML5, Adobe Flash Player 10.1, Adobe Mobile Air, POSIX, OpenGL and Java. The tablet can also do video playback in full 1080p HD, H.264, MPEG, DivX or WMV.
There’s no option for 3G/4G but that will be added in future models. The Playbook will pair with any BlackBerry handset via Bluetooth so you can project the contents of the phone to the tablet. See teaser video below:
RIM is expected to release the BlackBerry Playbook in the US in early 2011 and to the rest of the world by 2nd half of next year. No estimated retail price were indicated in the release.
