Why the buzz? Lighter and smaller than the iPad, the PlayBook combines BlackBerry’s most popular hallmarks like BlackBerry Messenger and incorporates new features such as real-time video conferencing. With support for Adobe Flash 10.1, the ability to multi-task, built-in HTML 5 support, a 1 GHz dual-core processor, and dual HD cameras, it's easy to see why RIM is betting on the Playbook.
