The BlackBerry PlayBook is BlackBerry's first tablet and their first device using a brand new QNX-powered operating system. The 7-inch tablet boasts a characteristic touch-sensitive bezel which enables a whole series of gestures to summon menus and switch between applications. BlackBerry Bridge allows data from a BlackBerry smartphone to be seen and worked with on the PlayBook, though software updates introduced many of those functions as stand-alone on the tablet. The BlackBerry PlayBook was announced on September 27, 2010, and released on April 19, 2011.

The original version of the device was Wi-Fi only, but a year later LTE-enabled PlayBooks were made available the following August. Models were produced with 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB of internal storage, and had a full array of inputs, including the first micro-HDMI port on a BlackBerry device and a custom quick-charge plug. The PlayBook was the first BlackBerry device to employ video chat and a front-facing camera, a feature which was later brought to the smartphone side on the BlackBerry Z10. On the front face are two high-quality speakers to provide stereo sound.
