After months of rumors, the BlackBerry PlayBook is finally available for purchase.  Specs-wise, it's quite the impressive tablet - 1 GHz dual-core Cortex CPU, 7-inch display, 5-megapixel camera, 3-megapixel front-facing camera, and 1 GB of RAM.  Presently a Wi-Fi-only device, it's available in 16, 32, and 64 GB flavors for between $499 and $699.

It's one of many tablets scheduled to launch this year, so it begs the question - is the PlayBook the best device on the market to date, or should you hold off for something else?  We'll try to figure it out in the full review.  Part 1 of 2.
