BlackBerry PlayBook Now in India

By June 22nd, 2011 AT 7:37 PM

BlackBerry Smartphone maker Research In Motion (RIM) today announced the launch of the highly anticipated BlackBerry PlayBook tablet in India.

The innovative BlackBerry PlayBook comes in an ultra-portable design and features industry-leading performance with real-time multitasking and symmetrical multiprocessing.

It delivers high-fidelity web browsing including support for Adobe Flash, as well as spectacular High-Definition (HD) multimedia, advanced security features and out-of-the-box enterprise support.

The tablet features Wi-Fi support and is available in 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB models priced at Rs. 27,990 (16 GB), Rs. 32,990 (32 GB) and Rs. 37,990 (64 GB).

The BlackBerry PlayBook users can access the enterprise data on their BlackBerry phones and go online as well by using a “BlackBerry Bridge” application and enabling bluetooth for data connectivity. Once they disconnect the bluetooth or move away, sensitive or secured data such as corporate e-mails and contacts are automatically wiped out from the PlayBook.

It will be distributed nationally through Redington India and Ingram Micro, initially in 1000 retail stores across 8 cities and then expanding to other parts of the country. Accessories for the BlackBerry PlayBook will also be available in these stores from today.

It also comes with premium multimedia features including dual High-Definition (HD) cameras for video capture and conferencing. It has an HDMI-out port for presenting on external displays and offers rich stereo sound with a media player that rivals the best in the industry.

The BlackBerry PlayBook Video Chat application enables users to interact between offices or share important moments and events with family and friends. With the BlackBerry PlayBook’s high-resolution video cameras and stunning display, a Video Chat call is the next best thing to being there.
