RIM compares PlayBook to iPad side-by-side [video]

Research in Motion recently uploaded a video to its Blackberry YouTube account. The three-minute video sees a PlayBook – RIM’s forthcoming enterprise tablet – and Apple’s iPad, the leading tablet device, side by side. 

While not a scientific benchmark test, the video compares various performance aspects such as web browsing speed and, of course, Adobe Flash.

The video also makes it clear just how much larger the iPad is – a pro for some consumers, a con for others. What are your thoughts?
