It is day two of this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, and the clear focus this year is on tablet PCs. One of the most anticipated tablets being shown at CES 2011 is RIM’s PlayBook tablet, which is expected to become available before the end of March.
I know plenty of you CrackBerry addicts and BlackBerry enthusiasts wish you could be in Vegas, playing with the PlayBook and the mounds of other electronic “toys” on display, so I thought I’d offer up the next best thing: A quick video tour of RIM’s CES BlackBerry Booth, where the Canadian company is showing off its full line of BlackBerry smartphones and accessories, along with the PlayBook tablet.
(Note: Near the start of the video, I state that RIM’s BlackBerry booth is “PlayBook-specific.” That’s not exactly accurate, because RIM also has smartphones and related accessories on display, as noted above. But I can honestly say that I only saw a handful of attendees spend more than a minute or two with a BlackBerry smartphone; all eyes are truly on RIM’s PlayBook at CES 2011.)
