BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet Available for Pre-Order at Office Depot

I saw in the recent email from Office Depot that they are taking pre-orders for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.  The PlayBook has a 1GHz processor, 7″ touchscreen, built-in WiFi, and dual cameras for HD video conferencing.  The PlayBook supports Adobe Flash and offers seamless BlackBerry integration.  It’s available in 16GB ($499.99), 32GB ($599.99), and 64GB ($699.99) versions.  There’s a limit of one per customer, while supplies last.

  2. As long as they make it pretty much mandatory that you have a Blackberry phone in order to really use the Playbook it’s pretty much destined for failure.

  3. @Janet, sorry if I sounded snarky. I knew it was a typo. 🙂 Now, is it dual core? What kind of processor is it? (I imagine they’re not releasing specs yet?)

    Anyway, don’t see how this is going to compete against my iPad.

    @Random Nerd No problem! Actually, they have a spec sheet hidden on the PlayBook page at BlackBerry. It says it has 1GHz dual-core processor and 1GB memory. If you want to see the specs, go to the playbook page, and you’ll find the “download specs” link on that bar under the slideshow – hidden over to the right.

    @Ken S The spec sheet I told Random Nerd about in the comment above this one says “Wirelessly connect to your BlackBerry® smartphone* for real time access to:
    Email, calendar, address book, task list and BBMT”
