RIM’s corporate culture seems to be changing significantly as they move towards a more consumer focused company. Recently, RIM released a BlackBerry PlayBook versus Apple iPad speed test video which is risky considering both companies have such large legal teams. Speed tests are also difficult because there are so many variables that can affect the test. Overall, it looks like RIM did an excellent job putting the test under clean conditions and it’s obvious the PlayBook kicks the iPad’s butt into oblivion when it comes to rendering websites fast and fully.
These videos are awesome and I’d love to see the PlayBook against the Galaxy Tab next.
