After some problems with financial results and shareholder confidence, RIM is ready to write a new chapter in its history and they prepare for the 4G PlayBook. Till then, we have the original unit of the slate launched in India and available for Rs 27,990 for the 16GB version, Rs 32,990 for 32GB of storage and Rs 37,990 if you want 64GB.

The PlayBook runs on the QNX OS, perfect for multitasking, but lacking its own email and contacts, so it depends on the pairing with a BlackBerry phone. This 7 inch tablet packs a 1GHz dual core CPU, 1GB RAM and two HD cameras, perfect for video conferencing. The model weighs 425 grams, supports WiFi and connects to a BlackBerry phone via Bluetooth.

The pairing gives you access to the calendar, BB Messenger, address book and email.
