The Blackberry Playbook has yet to make its official unveiling, but until that time comes we’ll have to settle with watching it face off against Apple’s iPad.

In this short video (after ‘leap’) RIM compares the load speeds of their browser with Apple and the results are a bit shocking.  The Playbook beats the iPad to the proverbial punch every time and manages to render Flash based sites with relative ease.  Sure, the sites that they chose aren’t exactly, but comparison aside the Playbook is looking pretty speedy.
