BlackBerry PlayBook, which was introduced yesterday in Research In Motion’s annual BlackBerry Developer Conference, is a hot new gadget. The analysts say that both PlayBook and Samsung Galaxy Tab will give a tough time to Apple’s iPad.
If we compare the features of these Tabs/Pads, PlayBook looks standing first. But one feature is still under debate and in fact it will decide the fate of PlayBook, i.e., Operating System. PlayBook will be running on BlackBerry Tablet OS developed by QNX which is a new OS for users and I think there won’t be much apps available for this system as well.
It will be injustice if we don’t share this comparison table of Apple’s iPad vs Galaxy Tab vs Dell Streak and vs BlackBerry PlayBoook posted by Engagdet, and in fact we are writing this post only to share this awesome comparison.
