My Blackberry Playbook Sneak Peek

I had the opportunity Saturday night to play with the new RIM Blackberry Playbook.  Never thought I partied with the 'right' crowd, but it looks like I do.

It's pretty impressive.   The OS on the version I saw was still in alpha, but the function and feel of it were very nice.   I've played with the iPad, and between the two, I think I would probably go with the Playbook as my own tablet.   I find it fit better in one hand than the iPad, which for me is more favorable to reading or the like.

Anyway, you're probably looking for some pics, so I won't disappoint.

The backlighting was great.

Fingerprints of love.  They only show up with the flash, not otherwise visible.

Great size to hold in one hand.  Not heavy at all.
