RIM has just declared total war on the tablet industry. For the last two years they've watched Apple and Google creep forward, while their market share and revenue fell. The enterprise market has even been deserting them lately. Most bloggers didn't expect much from the BlackPad, which was rumored to be merely a companion device.

Today at DevCon 2010, RIM announced the BlackBerry Playbook, which is now the single most badass tablet on (or near to on) the market. It packs a 7" high-res widescreen display, a dual-core 1 GHz processor with symmetrical multiprocessing, and 1 GB of RAM. It can play full 1080p and can also port it out via HDMI.

The Playbook has front and rear cameras, both of which are full-HD. It has full Flash 10.1 support, html5 support and a variety of enterprise ready features. It can integrate with your BlackBerry to display its information.

The keynote is still ongoing. We'll update if more info hits. Update: Read the exciting full details of the new BlackBerry PlayBook.
