The PlayBook is powered by a Cortex A9 Dual Core processor with PowerVR SGX540 graphics and 1 GB RAM that complement the operating system and give you PC like experience in a smaller form factor. The PlayBook sports a 7-inch LCD capacitive touchscreen that has a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. The high resolution screen also has 4-finger multi-touch and gesture support features.
A 5 megapixel camera is loaded at the back of the PlayBook that can record Full HD 1080p videos in MPEG format. There is also a 3 megapixel front-facing camera that allows video chatting. The user interface of this RIM device is noteworthy as it combines features from webOS and iOS.
DesignRIM has designed the PlayBook in a form factor that is easy to carry around. The device has a metal chassis with rounded edges that renders it a sophisticated look. On the top edge is the power button of the tablet, along with the volume rocker and play/pause button. If you don't prefer the power button, you can also start the PlayBook with a simple swipe-to-wake gesture touch.
The 425 g weighing BlackBerry tablet has dimensions of 130 x 194 x 10 mm. The two stereo speakers are neatly placed alongside the screen bezel, that give superior audio output. The Ambient Light Sensor present in the PlayBook is responsible for auto-adjusting the brightness of the 7-inch screen.

Absolute Bang for the Buck!After having read up a lot on the playbook, I decided to take the plunge and pick it up during the offer period.

Though I'm a Apple fanboyI'm a gadget guy and I'm a Apple fanboy from the days of iPod classic and have owned many apple products but just thought of trying something new (motivated by my positive experience with Windows 7 phones).

AwesomeI bought to 4 months ago, i've never used my pc again. The OS is cool, the only problem was lack of apps, well its not a problem anymore. OS 2.0 will release soon which will allow users to run android apps. And with the current offer (free curve) i recommend you to take it.

Best Tab below 20k ;)Guys first of all,i got playbook from a developer contest and not from flipkart.

DecentEverything about the playbook seems to aim at the mid-priced tablet. The lack of a 10" screen and 3G highlights this. However, it provides some really cool features.

Excellent Product at this Price PointOne thing that truly differentiates this product with the rest of the competition at this price range is that its a blackberry device.The build quality is excellent, the body is strong and the back cover is rubberized to provide a good grip to the user.
