BlackBerry PlayBook 64GB confirmed, plus 5,300mAh battery [Video]

RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook tablet won't be reaching the market until 2011, but the company has shared a few more hardware details at the Gulf Information Technology Exhibition (GITEX) this week.  According to RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie, the PlayBook will be available in a 64GB version as well as the 16GB and 32GB models already confirmed, and use a 5,300 mAh battery.Video after the cut

That puts it on a better footing compared to the Apple iPad, the first generation model at least, which is also available as a 64GB model.  Of course, by the time the PlayBook arrives, Apple may have launched their second-gen iPad, and RIM will be left playing catch-up with the rumored PlayBook 2 in the second half of 2011.
