More BlackBerry PlayBook Details Given at GITEX

Posted by at 12:34 pm on October 18, 2010

At the GITEX show, RIM’s Co-Chief Executive Officer Jim Balsillie revealed a few more key specs of the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.  

The  tablet will have a 5,300mAh, non-removable battery, which should provide it with more life than competing products. In comparison, the similarly-sized Galaxy Tab packs a 4,000mAh battery and a claimed seven-plus hour battery life when watching movies.

With a battery that has nearly a third more capacity, the PlayBook should last longer, and perhaps even match or beat Apple’s 10-hour rating for its larger iPad. RIM’s smartphones are  very efficient and known for their long operation on a single charge, hopefully some of this efficiency  will come to the PlayBook as well.

Slides at GITEX showed a 64GB model will also be on the market, as well as the already known 16GB and 32GB models.
