RIM Playbook, they might be down, but not out!

Just as I was almost going to write off RIM as a formidable player in the gadget space given its struggle to produce enticing smartphones, out comes a new tablet called the "PlayBook" that just might offer the right play (pun intended) for RIM to take back some uncharted market share.

Everything I am gathering is based on what Engadget has gathered, but looking at the specs tells me that the RIM execs have gotten this one pretty right, they basically added features that addressed all of iPad's flaws.  Some of the notable features that beats the iPads are:

*Front & Rear Mounted Cameras (3MP and 5MP respectively)
*Supports FLASH and HTML5
*HDMI Output w/ 1080P Video Support
*Weights even less at 0.9lbs (compared to iPads 1.5lbs.)
(For more spec, check out Engadget)

No words on how the device can handle file management or battery life (checkout my post about a recent business trip relying only on my iPad), target launch date is early 2011.  This could be just the device that puts RIM back in the center of action, if it can withstand a slew of Android Tablets that are on the market or coming soon.  A word of warning for RIM, the longer you wait to launch, the harder it becomes to gain market share back... hurry!
