Most of the rumors of specs were pretty much on point: 7" 1024 x 600 WSVGA screen, dual HD cameras (5mp rear facing, 3mp front facing) to incorporate video conferencing, HDMI and microHDMI outputs with full 1080p recording capability, and Wireless N and Bluetooth integration.

 

The Playbook will sport an all new BlackBerry Tablet OS which they state is "An OS Built for Developers," and have a 1ghz dual core processor under the hood. All of this in a tablet that weighs less than one pound. No pricing was released at this time. Here's the intro video shown at the BB DEVCON today:
