RIM CEO Gives Puzzling Answers to PlayBook Criticisms in Interview

by on April 15th, 2011

The latest iPad 2 competitor (if you want to call it that) from RIM, their coveted PlayBook which has been in the making for almost forever, launches on April 19th. This 7″ device runs on the QNX operating system, has Flash, a dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, high resolution dual cameras, 7-10 hours of battery life–but no nativeĀ email app, contacts app, calendar app, memos, or tasks app. Say…what?!

That’s right. It’s coming soon, but not included when it launches. It’s only available if you are using their new Blackberry Bridge feature, which pairs your device to the PlayBook.

In the following interview with Bloomberg, RIM co-CEO,Ā Jim Balsillie responds to some criticisms of its latest device. Check it out below (Flash video–if only you had a PlayBook right now):

Anyone picking up a PlayBook next week? How will these sales perform against the iPad 2? We’ll find out soon.
