Blackberry has released another video comparing the PlayBook to the iPad
Speed and acid tests aside, this really doesn’t do much for me. The PlayBook is being compared to the current iPad. By the time the Playbook is released it’s quite possible there will be a new iPad.
I am glad that Apple has a competitor in the market, however. While I don’t think that the PlayBook will take away from Apple’s tight-fisted grip on the tablet market, I do think the PlayBook will help drive innovation in the tablet-space.
I’m cautiously optimistic about the Blackberry Playbook since it’s announcement. While I’d like to see it succeed, I doubt it will exert any pressure on the iPad in terms of market penetration and widespread adoption. I don’t see a business use that this device meets except to make the executives at Blackberry-only companies feel included in the tablet club.
Think the PlayBook will smash the iPad or is it doomed for the museum of products that never were? Sound off in the comments below!
