We’ve got a long way to go before we can do a fair, apples-to-berries comparison between these two titans of the industry. There’s no doubt that the PlayBook is very smart device. It’s lighter, very well constructed, with a solid and well-engineered feel to it. It’s extremely fast and even feels faster than the current generation of iPad and or the Motorola XOOM. And at 7 inches, it fits nicely in a jacket pocket or a ladies small purse, which is something iPad can’t do.

When you search for a website on both tablets with same wifi, you will find that Playbook browsers loads the page faster than Ipad2. In addition to flash, Playbook is build to support open web standard. So developers have the freedom to choose how best to develop great web experiences as the web continues to evolves. Java script and HTML 5 canvas is faster on PlayBook than ipad2. We also get richer content because of support of flash in PlayBook. The PlayBook will run on a 1-GHz dual-core processor and come with 1 GB RAM. It will also include two cameras, a 5-megapixel camera at the back and a 3-megapixel front-facing camera which is better than ipad2.
