BlackBerry PlayBook promises to not only be an iPad killer, but also the tablet to surpass the Samsung Galaxy Tab and Dell Streak quality-wise. There’s a table below proving the BlackBerry slate’s superiority, not only in the RAM department, but also in the CPU section. As you might already know, the Playbook uses a 1GHz dual core Cortex A9 CPU, more powerful than Apple’s A4 processor, or the Cortex A8 CPU on Galaxy Tab, not to mention the Snapdragon on Dell Streak.

This new device also has the advantage of double the RAM of the Streak and Galaxy Tab and 4 times the memory of the iPad. Its internal storage is a mystery for now and another advantage is the promised 4G connectivity, that will be available on future versions of the PlayBook, while the other tablet models can’t yet provide such a feature.

The cameras are also better, with a 3MP unit upfront and a 5MP one at the rear, making the BlackBerry tablet a quality multimedia device, certainly better than the iPad, that lacks a camera, or the Galaxy Tab, with a mere 3MP cam at the back and a 1.3MP one at the front. Also, this newcomer is pretty slim for its size (7 inch, 0.9 lbs), another advantage in comparison with the rest of the bunch.

RIM wins… till the Notion Ink Adam arrives, at least.

  • Im loving my new iPhone. Ive had some connection issues but seems my cover has helped lots. Anyone know when the next version of the iPhone is going to come out?

  • I’m sure each of these devices is worth considering while choosing a tablet. As can be seen from the table above, you just need to think about what technical specifications you need first, because sometimes they differ considerably. Something is better in one device, and something in another.
