Smaller and lighter than the iPad, the screen size of the PlayBook measures at 7-inches and the total weight of the tablet comes in at 0.9-pounds. The PlayBook is expected to also come with a 1 GHz dual-core processor design for enhanced performance.

For the photographer and videographer two HD cameras are included. One 3-megapixel camera facing forward and a second 5-megapixel rear-facing camera for photography, video and phone conferencing. Other specs include 1080p HD video; H.264, MPEG4, WMV HDMI video output, Micro USB, Micro HDMI, and DNLA media streaming.

First generation PlayBook users will only be able to connect to the Web via a Wi-Fi or by tethering the tablet with a BlackBerry. Later models are expected to include the 3G, 4G network connection. Using a secure short-range wireless link the PlayBook can also be used as a second, larger screen for a BlackBerry phone.

The PlayBook is expected to arrive in stores in early 2011 in the US. No specific price is available but analysts are predicting $300 to $500.
