Blackberry Playbook Specs, Price, Apps List Philippines

RIM, the manufacturer behind the very successful Blackberry smartphone, recently released word that the Blackberry Playbook will arrive at Philippine shores first thing in August. It was just also made available in other countries just a couple of months ago. And with all the commotion the Blackberry Playbook is causing, this must be one very special device.

But what is the Blackberry Playbook? Simple: Tablet. The Blackberry Playbook is RIM's answer to Apple's iPad 2 and Samsung's Galaxy Tab (totally reminded me of the Palm acquisition by HP). It sports a dual-core Arm Cortext A9 1 GHz processor, a lighter weight, and its own Blackberry Tablet OS.

The Blackberry Playbook features an ultra-portable design and delivers industry leading performance, uncompromised web browsing with support for Adobe® Flash®, true multitasking, HD multimedia, advanced security features, out-of-the-box enterprise support and a robust development environment.

It's very accurate to say that the Blackberry Playbook app store has expanded significantly since the date when this list was compiled. Go check the official Blackberry Playbook app store for more updates.

Anyway, RIM has officially stated that it will expand its application ecosystem for the Blackberry PlayBook to include BlackBerry Java and Android-based applications. In a press release, RIM states that developers simply repackage, code sign, and submit their Android apps into BlackBerry App World. For now, the PlayBook will only support Android 2.3 apps.

RIM has also stated that the compatibility with Android applications will be included in a software update of the BlackBerry Tablet OS.

Sadly, the Blackberry Playbook pre-order period by Globe has already ended. But like I said, it's going to hit here in just a couple of days.

'Till my next installment.
