How's that song go again? Deck the halls with boughs of BlackBerry. Fa la la la la la? That sounds about right... Well, expect hear that version a lot over the next few months, because BlackBerry has released a stunning array of phones for the holiday season. Which is why we've been featuring the whole pantheon of BlackBerry offerings in a little series we've dubbed the BlackBerry Holiday Hall of Fame.

When it comes to tablets with unbridled power, few can match the BlackBerry PlayBook. Besides access to a vast app market (many of which you can run at the same time), it also supports Adobe® Flash 10.2 and HTML5. Which is to say, a 1GHz dual-core processor and a smooth operating system ensure that the PlayBook can multitask and browse the Internet just as fast as you can.

And when you tether your PlayBook to your BlackBerry phone via the BlackBerry Bridge, you automatically sync up your BBM, Calendar, Contacts, Memo Pad, Messages and Tasks. It adds another layer of functionality that allows you to switch from watching a movie to responding to an email from your superiors by simply looking at the other screen. Every update is instantaneous and takes full advantage of the PlayBook's speed. And when you're connected to Wi-Fi, you can even video chat with other PlayBook owners via a 3MP front-facing camera—or just upload photos you've taken with the 5MP rear-facing camera.
