John Jackson, an analyst from CSS Insight, estimates that the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet announced by RIM recently will cost $300 – $350, though RIM hasn’t said anything about price point yet. Regardless, anything under $400 would be an aggressive price point and compete with the Samsung Tab’s rumoured subsidized $300 pricetag, and the bare minimum $500 you would be pay for an iPad.
The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is RIM’s first smartphone companion device, rocking HDMI-out, twin 1 GHz processors, 1 GB of RAM, a 7-inch 1024 x 600 touchscreen, a 3 megapixel forward-facing and 5 megapixel rear-facing camera (both capable of HD video capture), and a new operating system from QNX that specializes in stability and multimedia. Take a look at our eyes-on tour of the PlayBook to scope out the hermetically-sealed hardware.
If you’re hankering to pick one up, the BlackBerry PlayBook should be available in Q1 2011.
