Nope. It’s not a BlackPad. RIM called it BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. This new tablet device was announced today at Research In Motion’s annual BlackBerry Developer Conference in San Francisco, Ca.

Running with the new BlackBerry Tablet OS built upon the QNX Neutrino microkernel architecture and support full OpenGL and POSIX alongside with other web standards such as HTML5, this tablet is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor. This is the first tablet ever (I think) that utilizes a multi-core CPU. You can check the full features and specs of the BlackBerry PlayBook below.

By looking at the specs, I think RIM can compete with Apple’s revolutionary iPad. But of course, we’ll be looking at the prices too, which could be announced anytime soon. This tablet device is expected to be out early as 2011 in the US and by Q2 of next year in other countries. So, what can you say about this?
