RIM confirms 16, 32 and 64GB versions of the BlackBerry PlayBook

You already know almost everything about the 7-inch BlackBerry PlayBook tablet from its announcement. Some new details have been reported at the GITEX expo in Dubai. They include the tablet’s battery capacity and its onboard storage.

It seems the BlackBerry PlayBook will have similar storage versions to the iPad – 16, 32 and 64GB.

Besides the dual-core 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM, the 3 and 5 megapixel cameras, sweet 1080p video encoding/decoding and the already mentioned onboard storage, BlackBerry PlayBook will pack a 5300 mAh battery. Let’s hope it will provide enough juice for long-time work with the BlackBerry Tablet OS.

Pricing is yet to be announced and the release date stays the same – sometime in Q2 2011. Let’s hope that Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, isn’t right that 7-inch tabltes should be considered dead-on-arrival just because they’re uncomfortably lodged between touch smartphones and proper tablets (read: the iPad).
