 Research In Motion (RIM) announced the launch of the highly anticipated BlackBerry PlayBook tablet in India. The innovative BlackBerry PlayBook comes in an ultra-portable design and features industry-leading performance with real-time multitasking and symmetrical multiprocessing. It delivers high-fidelity web browsing including support for Adobe Flash, as well as High-Definition (HD) multimedia, advanced security features and enterprise support.

The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet features Wi-Fi support and is available in 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB models. It will be distributed nationally through Redington India and Ingram Micro, initially in 1000 retail stores across 8 cities and then expanding to other parts of the country.  Accessories for the BlackBerry PlayBook will also be available in these stores from today. 

 “The BlackBerry PlayBook is an incredibly powerful and innovative product in the growing tablet marketplace.  It’s perfect for both large organizations and individuals, and it gives users an unmatched mobile experience,” said Frenny Bawa, Managing Director, India — Research In Motion.

 “With the BlackBerry PlayBook we are stepping into a new era of mobile computing and opening up new and even more exciting opportunities for developers and content publishers with support for Adobe® Flash®, Adobe® Mobile AIR® and HTML-5,” Ms. Bawa added.

The BlackBerry PlayBook measures less than half an inch thick and weighs less than a pound. It includes a vivid 7-inch high resolution display, 1 GHz dual-core processor and the new BlackBerry Tablet OS, which delivers a highly-responsive, fluid touch screen experience. It also comes with premium multimedia features including dual High-Definition (HD) cameras for video capture and conferencing. It has an HDMI-out port for presenting on external displays and offers rich stereo sound with a media player that rivals the best in the industry.  

The BlackBerry PlayBook Video Chat application enables users to interact between offices or share important moments and events with family and friends. With the BlackBerry PlayBook’s high-resolution video cameras and display, a Video Chat call is the next best thing to being there.

Customers who have a BlackBerry smartphone (running OS 5.0 or higher) can also benefit from BlackBerry Bridge, a unique feature that allows a user to wirelessly and securely connect their BlackBerry smartphone to their BlackBerry PlayBook over Bluetooth. The secure connection allows the user to access their BlackBerry smartphone’s email, address book, calendar, memo pad, task list, BBM and browsing functionality using the large display on the tablet.
