While the Blackberry 10 smartphone has helped to at least partially restore the ailing technology brands fortunes, the firm remains determined to achieve even greater success. As a result of this desire to compete with leading lights such as Apple, Samsung and Nokia, Blackberry has announced that it set to launch a new tablet which will borrow heavily from the extremely successful BB10 operating system. This is one of 6 new devices planned for 2013, as the brand plan an assault on the consumer market.
The PlayBook tablet is considered by experts to be the best product of the bunch, however, and this appears to be an opinion that Blackberry share themselves. Due for release during the second financial quarter, it will be compatible with the BB10 OS and feature an outstanding 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel resolution display. It will also be powered by a 1.5GHz dual core processor and up to 1 GB of RAM, and its impressive specification should allow Blackberry to continue their impressive and ominous start to 2013.
Given the underwhelming performance of the existing PlayBook device, Blackberry appear to have struck gold with their new design and stellar product line-up for 2013. With an additional 10 inch tablet due for release in the autumn of 2010 and the continual development of an all new NoteSmartly application for this and the PlayBook, Blackberry may soon be in a position to challenge the prevailing market dominance of Apple and Samsung while also reviving its own aspirations as a cutting edge technology brand.
