CEO Mike Lazaridis announced the company’s new tablet — the PlayBook.
The tablet will utilize an OS created by the recently acquired QNX
(just as we’d heard previous to the announcement) called the
BlackBerry Tablet OS which will offer full OpenGL and POSIX support
alongside web standards such as HTML5 (which is all tied into RIM’s
new WebWorks SDK). Lazaridis was joined on stage by the company’s
founder, Dan Dodge, who said that “QNX is going to enable things that
you have never seen before,” and added that the PlayBook would be “an
incredible gaming platform for publishers and the players.” RIM also
touted the PlayBook’s ability to handle Flash content via Flash 10.1,
as well as Adobe AIR apps. The new slate — which Lazaridis described
as “the first professional tablet” — will sport a 7-inch, 1024 x 600,
capacitive multitouch display, a Cortex A9-based, dual-core 1GHz CPU
(the company calls it the “fastest tablet ever”), 1GB of RAM, and a 3
megapixel front-facing camera along with a 5 megapixel rear lens (and
yes, there will be video conferencing). There was no mention of
onboard storage capacity during the keynote, though the devices we
just spied in our eyes-on post are labeled 16GB and 32GB on their back
panels. The PlayBook will be capable of 1080p HD video, and comes
equipped with an HDMI port as well as a microUSB jack, 802.11a/b/g/n
WiFi, and Bluetooth 2.1. The device clocks in at a svelte 5.1- by
7.6-inches, is only 0.4-inches thick, and weighs just 400g (or about
0.9 pounds).

In terms of interface, the OS looks like a mashup of webOS and the
BlackBerry OS, even allowing for multitasking via what amounts to a
“card” view. Interestingly, RIM and QNX boasted of the PlayBook’s
multimedia and gaming functions, but Mike Lazaridis also described the
tablet as “an amplified view of what’s already on your BlackBerry.”
That’s due largely in part to a function of the tablet which allows
you to siphon data off of your BlackBerry handset via Bluetooth
tethering and display it on your PlayBook (a la the ill-fated Palm
Foleo). While the PlayBook doesn’t seem to rely on phone content
alone, the press release from the company says that users can “use
their tablet and smartphone interchangeably without worrying about
syncing or duplicating data.” RIM didn’t hand out any solid launch
dates beyond “early 2011,” and of course, there was no mention of
retail price. We’ve got a slew of content after the break, including
the PlayBook spec rundown, the company’s press release, and a full
video of the device (and UI) in action — so take a look!

An article in Digitimes Telecom states that Google are planning to launch a mobile handset the GPhone. Google might embed the Texas Instruments (TI) chipset if it decides to go with EDGE on its phone. However, according to sources Google might be looking at having 3G on their phones in which case Qualcomm is going to be the winner. If Google decides to go ahead with 3G then the phones will be released in the first half of 2008.
