RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook Makes a Live Demo Appearance

RIM has dispelled rumors that the BlackBerry tablet, or PlayBook, was vaporware, by showing it off in the flesh at the Adobe MAX show on Monday. This came on the same day that RIM made the first build of a BlackBerry PlayBook QNX OS simulator available for Windows and Mac.

Last month, when RIM announced the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, the company did not demo the device and caught a lot of flak (and disbelief) about the PlayBook, because of it.

Check out the demo below, or even try the simulator and tell us what you think. Can it compete with the iPad or Galaxy Tab?
