BlackBerry PlayBook available for a quick hands-on. The announcement came during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, where a slew of tablets are being unveiled. This lot includes the much-hyped Motorola Xoom, a tablet to be sold by Verizon Wireless, which will use a version of Google's Android operating system designed with tablets in mind

The PlayBook is RIM's upcoming rival to tablets such as the iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab. It has a 7-inch touchscreen, the 9.7-inch PlayBook was in the works, but has been vague on details about price and availability.

It felt sturdy and robust, but not too heavy. It's slim too, and we reckon it'll fit in a pocket, or certainly a satchel or handbag without too much complaint. There's a mini-HDMI port to output video to your TV, and both rear- and front-facing cameras (5 and 3 megapixels respectively).

With Wi-Fi and Flash support too, the PlayBook is looking mighty promising. Our trusty American cousins at have been informed that the PlayBook will come in 16, 32 and 64GB versions, will be released in the first quarter of 2011 and will be priced "competitively", to mean that it'll cost about the same as the iPad.

What do you think of the design? Does the PlayBook look how you expected it to, and do you think you'll be buying one?

Instead of sacking off chi and attacking each other with hundred-hand slaps, they're shown attractive in various behaviors associated with the members of World Wrestling Entertainment.

Jimmy might be one of their weirdest and coolest usages yet. He's recreated many of Street Fighter's characters in the wrestling game, and it's quite a sight to see the iconic figures act like Macho Man Randy Savage. All told, he created more than 20 Street Fighter characters using the SvR 2011 character creator, and they're just about perfect. I never thought I'd seen Akuma and Gouken or Ryu and Sagat hash out their differences in the wrestling ring, but that's exactly what's happening here.
