BlackBerry PlayBook now available in New Zealand

Research In Motion (RIM) has  announced the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is now available in New Zealand. The portable tablet is available in three Wi-Fi models – with 16 GB, 32 GB or 64 GB of memory storage – from retailers Noel Leeming, JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman as well as Telecom New Zealand and Vodafone. Retail pricing starts from NZ$799 and customers can contact their carrier or retail store for more information.

“New Zealand consumers and businesses have been very enthusiastic about getting their hands on the BlackBerry PlayBook and we are very happy to bring the device to the New Zealand market through Telecom New Zealand and Vodafone as well as our new retail partners,” said Adele Beachley, RIM’s Managing Director for New Zealand.

The BlackBerry PlayBook is a multitasking powerhouse that stands apart from other tablets. Its ground-breaking performance is jointly fuelled by a 1 GHz dual-core processor and an operating system which supports true symmetric multiprocessing. Together, the abundant processing power and highly sophisticated OS enable the BlackBerry PlayBook to provide users with true multitasking and a highly-responsive and fluid touch screen experience for apps and content services.

The BlackBerry PlayBook also offers support for Adobe Flash to give users uncompromised web browsing and video streaming, while for the business-minded, the preloaded Documents To Go software lets users work with spreadsheets, Word files and PowerPoint presentations. Plus, the BlackBerry PlayBook cleverly links up with BlackBerry smartphones over Bluetooth with the innovative BlackBerry Bridge software.

Packed with HD multimedia capabilities, the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet comes with two cameras – a front facing 3 megapixel camera and a 5 megapixel rear facing one, each capable of recording 1080p HD video. 

In addition, there’s support for video chatting between BlackBerry PlayBook tablet users, which can show callers in brilliant clarity on the tablet's high-resolution display.
