RIM Playbook in Apple iPad smackdown

Posted by TG DAILY STAFF

RIM has released a video which shows its Playbook tablet outperforming Apple's iPad in loading standard web pages.

As expected, the Playbook also seamlessly renders Flash video content, while the iPad displays an error message.

However, as Brand Linder of Lilliputing points out, the video was produced by RIM and likely favors content where the Playbook excels.

"[In addition], the iPad has also been out for a few months while the PlayBook - which isn't available yet - features next-generation technology including a dual core ARM-based processor," wrote Linder.

"Of course, the PlayBook takes it time loading Flash content...You'll get a much better experience using a desktop web browser. But at least you have the option on the PlayBook."
