SO TECH | iPad Competitor the 'BlackBerry PlayBook'

We won't know until next year whether it's a legitimate competitor to the iPad's tablet market monopoly, but we know this much: it looks like an iPad with more unused space on the front. The BlackBerry PlayBook, no price yet, is a new 7-inch touchscreen tablet aimed more at the business crowd, but packing plenty of widely-appreciated features like dual HD cameras, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, HDMI output, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, 1080p video playback, 1024x600 resolution, Adobe Flash Player 10.1 support (A Huge "Fuck you!" to Apple and Steve Jobs!) and Blackberry's new — and yet unproven — Tablet OS. My bet is only the Apple haters will buy one so they don't feel inferior on the airplane when I whip out my iPad.
