SlashGear BlackBerry PlayBook Giveaway!

If you hadn't already noticed, SlashGear and our sibling site Android Community are in a tablety-mood at the moment, with a handful of Motorola XOOM slates that we're simply desperate to give away to our readers. Office Depot has generously given us a BlackBerry PlayBook WiFi tablet to give away too; check out exactly how you can win this QNX slate after the cut.

It's a prize worth $499.99, and features a 7-inch touchscreen, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS, along with Adobe Flash support. There's also two cameras, and RIM has thrown in Android app compatibility so that the PlayBook won't be short on software to run when it hits the shelves.
