A couple of days gave the green light for sale in Spain, so after hearing the price of Blackberry Playbook and have their video analysis, and review detailed touches unify what this tablet on the market. The Blackberry Playbook is configured as a tablet with functions centered on the business but with serious aspirations to be a model that engage consumers of all kinds.
Blackberry Playbook, seriously tablet features
Since Canadians thought this tablet RIM Blackberry Playbook as an extra for users with device company, 7-inch screen was a very sensible and attractive figure. With a perfect touch response (capacitive and multitouch) and a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, the screen is one of its star.
It covers almost all the serious design and excellent finish, offering a size of 194 × 130 × 10 mm, and weighs 425 grams.
In point of connections, the Playbook features a microUSB port, microHDMI output, WiFi and Bluetooth, as well as sensors and six-axis digital compass. It also includes GPS. We miss the inclusion of a memory card slot. The battery of 5300 mAh meets the condition to hold at between eight and ten hours at full capacity.
BlackBerry Tablet OS operating system focused on multitasking
Finally, RIM has enhanced its Playbook for users who already have a team of the company through the system called Blackberry Bridge. The system connects via bluetooth tablet with the Blackberry terminal and is accessed from the screen of the Blackberry Playbook as essential applications such as email, calendar or calendar. This access to BIS will be implemented later this year natively on the team of 7 inches.
That link is done via Bluetooth with the Blackberry phone can be done with any other smartphone to get Internet connection in the Playbook, or using a device type MiFi, very common with tablets that series does not have opted for a 3G model .
Good communication and multimedia capabilities
With the same quality video is capable of recording the main chamber of the Playbook, in addition to photos at 5 megapixels. The secondary camera, the main protagonist of the videoconference so important in a tablet with a professional profile, is 3 megapixels, and that quality shows in the results.
Blackberry Playbook The tablet is available in Spain from June 13 freely. There are three models to choose from, all access (There is currently no 3G versions), which differ in the internal memory, which can be 64, 32 and 16 GB.
The price of Blackberry Playbook is 499 euros for the lower capacity model, 599 for 32 GB and 699 euros will have to pay to enjoy our hands on a free Blackberry with 64 GB Playbook.
If you have been aware of the new equipment RIM BlackBerry Bold 9900 (GSM) and Bold 9930 (CDMA), will know that now include, among other features, magnetometer and digital compass. These features along with a 1.2 Ghz processor, give it great potential for these new devices.
RIM does not want to miss this opportunity and has included in its application to Wikitude created by Mobilizy. This is an application that provides an augmented reality experience for BlackBerry, combining technologies such as GPS, digital compass, magnetometer and integration with social networks, especially with the BBM BlackBerry Messenger AKA.
With the BlackBerry 7 APIs to allow these features will be available for developers to create applications that will truly enriched.
It is important that RIM provide a friendlier environment and development potential in terms of functions, is what the developers are seeking primarily, even on the amount of people coming to this market application. And above all, is what RIM needs to maintain its existing platform. We saw delays in launches and the bad reviews hit the shares of RIM, but hey, being a company so big and so global market today is still time to recover, but it needs major changes, especially in the quality of their software. Hopefully, the social platform of BBM BlackBerry 7 carcaterísticas and the new augmented reality, along with a decent hardware, are the standard for the recovery of RIM.
Bad times those who live RIM, the company behind the popular Blackberry. The poor reception given his tablet on the market, called Playbook Blackberry has not only confirmed the crisis being experienced by the company. Meanwhile, Apple has gone back to Android continues its momentum and steadily.
Commercial failure. So we could call the first days on the market of the Blackberry Playbook, the tablet with RIM wanted to stand up to Apple and its iPad. In Canada, users responded much less as had happened with the launch last March iPad 2, where they waited in long lines at the mall to get one of these devices.
As we saw days before its release, the poor record sales had been predicted by analysts for the shortcomings of the device. “It’s elegant but flawed and yet offers a secure email service,” said one of them. That has to be connected to a Blackberry handheld for now makes a device with a potential audience too small.
The price of the tablet is also similar to the iPad, when RIM had promised a cheaper gadget and try to stand up to Apple for that edge. The sad results achieved by now had a direct impact on the Nasdaq, down 3% in their actions. Some analysts said the lack of publicity given to the device might have been another cause of these results, noting that by the end of the year RIM will sell 3 million tablets.
The iPad 2, sales leader
Despite being in the millions, these figures are far from the iPad 15 million that were sold in 2010 and the high number of iPad 2 that is expected to sell before 2012. Apple has once again gather momentum and strengthen its leadership with its latest tablet, even though these innovations have not convinced everyone. The thinness of the device is one of its strengths, but have yet to try to get more tablets than stand up to the Apple tablet.
Android is the operating system chosen by other manufacturers to compete with the U.S. company. Google’s platform has a fast pace of growth and to date are activated more than 350,000 terminals worldwide within it. In the market for smartphones, phones like the LG Optimus 2X or expected Samsung S II Galaxy hope to shake the iPhone the easy chair 4, whereas in tablets Samsung also try to do the same with its updated version of Galaxy Tab.
Developers can access tools to work on content and applications.
The materials being developed by Microsoft will run on Windows and, inter alia, are aimed at the development of future applications for the Windows operating system. These applications, in line which would provide Kinect, encourage the control computers with gestures and voice.
Kinect users have shown from the beginning his interest in the possibilities of the device. Since its release in November last year, there have been many developers, researchers and study centers have experimented with Kinect.
Applications have been developed since the creation of virtual reality systems to connect the device with other platforms such as Nintendo’s Wii console.
Microsoft has supported since the beginning of the investigation as a peripheral, and now the company goes a step further and has decided to publish the codes and tools for working with Windows environments Kinect.
The multinational considered Kinect possibilities are endless and that the step is giving help to revolutionize the way people interact with technology.
Expanding social networking sites are used in the most delicate investigations. A recent development that raises new questions.
MySpace, Facebook, Bebo, Buddies before . popular with teens, social networking sites have also become the allies of the police. True spies, they are a new source of information “open” to trap offenders. At Rosny-sous-Bois, in the Technical Service of legal research and documentation (STRJD) of the gendarmerie, they are used in the most delicate investigations: the disappearance of minors, incitement to suicide or to racial hatred, defamation, deal illicit substances and especially in the fight against pedophilia and child pornography.
“We are not connected, only according to our needs,” said Colonel Emmanuel Bartier, Deputy Head of Service STRJD. We need a motive as an offense, an information or suspicion. “
For simple verification environment, as associates of a suspect, investigators access to information as well as any surfer since they are public. It was so recently with the profile of a dubious man of a certain age who were exclusively profiles of girls in her “friends.”
“Before, we banged on the doors of neighbors to know the suspect’s associates, we know them today in a click!”, Says a police officer. Only caveat: “These networks are purely declarative, anyone can create a profile on behalf of someone else. We can not take information at face value, shade Squadron Leader Alain Permingeat, chief of the division of the fight against cybercrime STRJD.
