Today Research in Motion revealed a 7-inch tablet to add to its phone line-up.

The BlackBerry PlayBook is almost a third of the weight of the iPad and but it doesn't have a higher pixel density than the iPad, 1024 x 600 pixels (compared to the iPad's 1024 x 768 pixels). Though some may say this isn't a fair match up since the iPad has a 9.7 inch screen and the PlayBook has is a bit more portable 7 inch.

Some of the key features:

  • BlackBerry OS (not a full computer OS)
    • OS supports Flash 10.1, HTML5, OpenGL, and Java
  • 1 GHz dual-core processor
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • Two HD cameras, back camera - 5 MP, front camera - 3 MP
  • Full HD video recording
  • Wi-Fi support only
  • Bluetooth 2.1
The device is expected to launch in early 2011 in the United States and soon after to the entire world.
