Celebrities flock to Playbook launch

Blackberry's Playbook

Research In Motion recently launched the highly anticipated BlackBerry PlayBook tablet at an event held in Johannesburg, and among the invited guests were South African celebrities such as Bonang Matheba, Edith Venter, DJ Euphonik, Louise Carver, Fourie du Preez and Slikour.

During the launch, celebrities and media competed in a quiz to determine which of them would be the true Brain of BlackBerry. The winning team compromised of team members such as Lyndon Ferns, Cindy Nell-Roberts, David Tlale and Tatum Keshwar.

The professional-grade BlackBerry PlayBook and BlackBerry Tablet OS offer a wealth of new possibilities for mobile computing. Perfect for either large organisations or an “army of one”, the BlackBerry PlayBook is designed to give users what they want, including uncompromised web browsing, true multitasking and high performance multimedia.

Measuring less than half an inch thick and weighing less than a pound, the BlackBerry PlayBook features a vivid 7” high resolution display that looks and feels great in the hand. With support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1, Adobe Mobile AIR and HTML-5, the BlackBerry PlayBook provides customers with an uncompromised, high-fidelity web experience and offers them the ability to enjoy all of the sites, games and media on the web.

The BlackBerry PlayBook is due to be launched commercially in South Africa within the next few weeks.
