RIM unveils BlackBerry PlayBook Video Transcript
Introducing the world's first professional tablet, the BlackBerry PlayBook. As we see, everyone needs a great playbook, whether you're a sports team, you're a business, you're developing strategy or you're coping with your family--everybody relies on their playbook to keep them focused and get them through the day. Let me talk to you more about our PlayBook. First, it's always on and it's ultra mobile and it's ultra thin at 9.7 mm. It's the ideal form factor. It's 7-inch high-resolution widescreen display is super comfortable to hold and super convenient to carry. The first time you hold it, it just feels right and you wanna take it everywhere you go. Second, the BlackBerry PlayBook will deliver a no-compromise web experience. Not just WebKit, not just HTML 5.0 but also full Flash 10.1 with hardware accelerate video. And you're gonna be able to get the full web experience. Third, the multimedia experience. The BlackBerry will support 1080p HD video with an industry standard HDMI out connector, for connectivity to external display, something our CIOs have all asked us for so you can go straight from your PlayBook to a presentation, and you can display anything from PowerPoint, documents, websites, or even videos. We've added not just rear camera but also a front-facing camera for video capture and these are full HD cameras, both the front and the back. And you'll be able to run both the HDMI out and be able to play something completely different on the LCD screen. Just imagine the kind of user interaction that will be able to generate. Fourth, this thing is Enterprise ready. CIOs can rest assured that the BlackBerry PlayBook is absolutely Enterprise ready. They can take advantage of the unique BlackBerry integration with secure pairing, so, think of this. Right? You've already got a BlackBerry, you already have an account, you're already paying for it, it's already connected into the BlackBerry Enterprise server. It's already being controlled and managed from IT. You already know how to use it. All the data has already been sent to your BlackBerry. Why send it again? Why not use the NSA-approved Bluetooth secure pairing to have an amplified view of what's already on your BlackBerry. An amplified view of the Enterprise standard. You won't need any new software. You won't need new security. You don't need new IT administration. No new data plan. The PlayBook has out-of-the-box compatibility with over 250,000 Enterprise servers already in market. The BlackBerry PlayBook, just like the BlackBerry smartphones, will become the Enterprise standard. And, finally, it wouldn't be professional if it didn't have industry leading performance and here again, we take the lead with 1 GHz dual core processors that take advantage of built-in symmetric multiprocessing with a full GHz of RAM for real, true multitasking capability.
