Well, it’s official folks. Research In Motion, a.k.a. RIM, the lovely people who have brought you many frustrating Blackberry products chocked full of trackballs, announced yesterday that they will be releasing a tablet touchscreen computer. Aimed to compete with the iPad and the new Samsung Galaxy, the RIM tablet, being called the Playbook for now, will feature a 1 GHz processor and a max resolution of 1024×600. The phone will be able to pair with Blackberry handsets via bluetooth to share data and a 3G connection. And most importantly, for the iPad haters, it will feature fully hardware accelerated Flash (YAY!). Look for it to be released sometime in Q1 2011.
