The 16GB Wi-Fi version is priced at £399, while the 32GB and 64GB Wi-Fi models cost £479 and £559 respectively.
The tablet PC has a 7in WSVGA capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1024x600 pixels and runs off a 1GHz dual-core processor.
The PlayBook also benefits from 1GB of RAM and, as with most tablets, the Playbook will have a GPS accelerometer, a six-axis motion sensor and a digital compass. It runs the BlackBerry Tablet operating system and is capable of 1080p high-definition video capture, thanks to its 5Mp main camera. It also has a secondary 3Mp camera and an HDMI-out port.
"We have seen a strong demand for the BlackBerry PlayBook ahead of the launch, and pre-orders are already on target to sell out. Customers are getting excited about the potential that tablets offer and the integration with BlackBerry smartphones is a real plus point for business users," said Paul Bolt, marketing and partner management director at Insight.
The company also revealed any pre-ordered devices were shipped yesterday and should arrive today.
