RIM PlayBook vs Apple iPad: Faster Web Browsing

At OSM we have reported over the last couple of months on Research in Motion’s latest offering to the tablet market, the “BlackBerry PlayBook.” Although at times, we only had snippets of information to give you, our last report stated that on releasing the tablet it would be competitively priced against the likes of Apple’s iPad and Samsung’s Galaxy tablets.

AppleInsider have told us of RIM now giving us a glimpse into what we can expect with a video release “BlackBerry PlayBook and iPad Comparison: Web Fidelity,” showing the 7-inch touchscreen tablet in all it’s glory. It shows the device with Adobe Flash and faster Web browsing compared to that of the iPad. The PlayBook accesses different websites in a faster way to that of Apple’s device.

With the use of an Acid3 test, both PlayBook and iPad scored top marks when demonstrating HTML5 performance. So rounding up what we know about PlayBook’s performance so far, it incorporates a 7-inch screen size, equal to that of the Galaxy Tab but smaller than the iPad. It includes Adobe Flash, gives faster Web browsing and scores highly in giving HTML5. All this for under $500.

What are your thoughts on the PlayBook? Can you see it matching that of it’s competitors or will it get lost in a sea of tablets? Let us know. To find out more check out AppleInsider.
