The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet in action

The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet has been an exciting product to implement, and is beginning to be used in innovative ways. For example, check out how the Royal Bank of Scotland is leveraging the solution to access to global research and strategy information.

Here are a few of our favorite BlackBerry PlayBook tablet features:

1. Multitasking

Running multiple applications and media, as well as switching seamlessly between them, has never been easier. Not only is the multitasking functionality present in the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, it is also intuitive to use.

2. Adobe® Flash™

I’ve waited a long time for a mobile device that fully supports Adobe Flash in the browser; there were always a few sites that I just couldn’t access on the go due to this often missing feature. (Okay, I admit that I’m an occasional fan of Adobe Flash games too!)

3. HDMI Cable to TV

This is where it gets even more functional and fun – not only can I hook up my BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to a screen to present a slideshow (or to play Need for Speed™ Undercover), it’s in full high definition.

4. BlackBerry® Bridge™

The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet integrates with my email information right away when I hook up the BlackBerry Bridge application with my BlackBerry smartphone – it even integrates past messages!

5. BlackBerry PlayBook tablet apps

There’s nothing like filling up your new mobile device with applications from the BlackBerry App World™ storefront. It still amazes me to see full-screen BlackBerry platform applications running on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet on its high resolution. Apps will always be one of my favorite features, and it’s a feature that keeps getting better and better as more apps are constantly being released.

The world’s first 3d smartphone has been released. It it also the first smartphone to boast dual-core, dual-memory and dual-channel architecture as well as the first 3D platform allowing for viewing and sharing of content courtesy of Youtube 3D. The ‘tri-dual’ configuration, as it is dubbed, enables users to enjoy improved performance and run-time compared to smartphones offering 1GHz dual-core processors. The configuration works in a way that it transfers data simultaneously between the dual-core and dual-memory, meaning that users can browse web pages, multitask between programs, play games at higher frame rates and enjoy movies more smoothly and for longer than ever before.The phone will run on Google’s OS Android Froyo 2.2 and will be upgradeable to Gingerbread 2.3.

The LG has a 5MP dual-lens camera that can capture and record images and videos in 3D! Users can view their 3D content on the 4,3 inch WVGA display without the need for those pesky 3D glasses. The screen allows 2D capability up to 1080p and in 3D up to 720p.

Even the user interface is in 3D! It features 5 3D-dedicated UI’s (that’s User Interfaces for all the non-geeks) as well as an HDMI 1.4 output that connects to 3D TVs and monitors. Another cool feature is that users can easily upload and stream 3D content on Youtube’s dedicated 3D channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/3D).

So, the iPad 2 has finally been unveiled. And its thinner, lighter and faster than ever before. 33% thinner and 15% lighter to be exact.

Its 5mm thinner than the iPhone 4 and weighs only 600 grams! Apple beefed up the specs with a 1Ghz Dual-Core Apple A5 processor, which is bound to accommodate multitasking with the ’Pad. Dual cameras are also a new addition (720p HD on the back, VGA on the front), enabling the new FaceTime feature to be utilised. Audio has been improved with two larger stereo speakers as well as HDMI output. Faster graphics and enhanced battery life (10 hours) also allow the user to game to their hearts content. A gyroscope also found in the iPhone 4 will ensure the oohs and aahs will ensue for any first time Apple user. Special magnetic covers have also been developed, ensuring your beautiful iPad doesn’t get ruined. And you can get it in white! If you’re into that kind of thing (hehe).

A lot of people have been downplaying the impact that the iPad 2 will have but with the prices starting at $499 (around R3500), I reckon sales will continue to soar. Shipping and sales commence on March 11.
