eyeWant: A BlackBerry Playbook

And the battle continues...iPhone or BlackBerry? Whatever your choice is, you now have another gadget to add to your wish list. Blackberry users, wallow no more, you now have a PlayBook. Yes, this is RIM’s BlackPad tablet device to the left which should be unveiled in a few days and hit stores this Holiday season.

There was no mention of on board storage capacity during the keynote, though the devices we just spied in our eyes-on post are labeled 16GB and 32GB on their back panels. The PlayBook will be capable of 1080p HD video, and comes equipped with an HDMI port as well as a microUSB jack, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth 2.1. The device clocks in at a svelte 5.1- by 7.6-inches, is only 0.4-inches thick, and weighs just 400g (or about 0.9 pounds).

While that could paint an inelegant picture for many iPad users, it’s also a signal that RIM initially will market the device to its own core customers. The BlackPad reportedly will sport as many as two cameras, with one pointed at the user for videoconferencing.

Here's how the PlayBook measures up to the iPad:
