Yup…Another Tablet Hitting The Market

Blackberry is getting into the tablet computer game.

Parent company Research In Motion says its entry into the tablet space will be called the BlackBerry PlayBook — and will start selling next month in the U.S. and Canada. The release date is April 19 and the least-expensive model will be $499 — same price as the cheapest iPad, made by Apple. RIM says customers can start pre-ordering the PlayBook through Best Buy. The tablet has a 7-inch screen, runs BlackBerry software and can connect to a BlackBerry — acting as a bigger screen for the popular brand of smartphones. RIM calls it the first “professional-grade tablet.”
