The Playbook is the first tablet issued from Canadian based Research in Motion! The Blackberry Playbook has a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen with gesture support. There are no physical buttons on the unit other than the power and volume buttons. This means interaction with any of the menus or programs depends totally on sweeping your finger access the screen in different ways. The display resolution is very solid at 1024×600 and runs on a 1 GHZ Cortex A9 dual core processor. It has 1 GB of ram which makes multitasking applications very snappy.
