BlackBerry Playbook trashes the Apple iPad at browsing, the video’s inside

Okay this video comes from RIM’s own YouTube channel so you should probably take it with a bucket of salt but it’s worth checking out nonetheless. Here’s how it goes: the RIM upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook tablet and the insanely successful Apple iPad are placed side by side on a table and are then made to load several pages simultaneously.

The result is there for you to see – the PlayBook swim laps around the iPad and that’s discounting the fact that the Apple tablet lacks Flash. If the video is in fact representative of the PlayBook real capabilities and the “under 500 US dollars” price promise is kept this might very well be the tablet to get in the first half of 2011.
