CPU is supposed to be a 1GHz dual-core ARM Cortex A9-based processor.

Core is supposed to be 1GB.

Price? TBD, but I think it will fall between $750 and $1500. If they’re going to be aggressive, they’ll try to price it at $999 or some such.

BlackBerry maker RIM unveils tablet computer

*******************************EXCERPT**************************************

PlayBook users can pair the tablet with their BlackBerry smartphone using a Bluetooth connection, RIM said, noting that content stored on the smartphone is only temporarily cached on the tablet.

RIM so far didn't announce price of PlayBook, but said it would be in the lower range for tablets already on the market.

**********************************************************************************

This doesn't look anything like a consumer type of device....

From the way it is announced,...the size....and the tether to a blackberry phone.....
