RIM CEO shows off BlackBerry Playbook in Dubai with battery specs and mention of a 64 Gig device

by Shayne Rana

The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet PC made it to the GITEX conference in the Dubai. The company’s CEO showcased an apparent working device and gave the audience a look at the spec sheet in a little more detail. Earlier we had heard that 16GB and 32GB models were on the list but it seems like RIM is following Apple now and is planning on launching a third option with 64GB. Also announced at the gig was the fact that the PlayBook will come equipped with a 5300 mAh battery. That’s impressive too. The fact that there’s been no mention of a microSD or any other memory card slot had worried me a bit, I have to admit, but with 64GB on the plate I think I’m feeling a little better.
