BlackBerry PlayBook shows off 3D

RIM looks set to jump on the 3D bandwagon - you will need glasses, though

RIM showed off some impressive 3D content on the PlayBook during its keynote speech at the BlackBerry World convention earlier today, indicating the PlayBook is on the verge of offering a whole host of 3D content to its users.

The 3D content, created by The Astonishing Tribe, will be available via the App World store, as long as it gets the green light from RIM's head honchos. We were treated to a visual treat of impressive demos, including 3D widgets, games and a 3D Rubik's cube, which are capable of running on RIM's tab, thanks to its dual-core processor.

The PlayBook's 3D capabilities are set to work in the same way as the LG Optimus Pad - so with glasses - but it's still an exciting prospect for RIM's 7-incher.

We want to know what you think, does the prospect of 3D on the PlayBook make it more appealing?
