*UPDATE* A new longer video from the conference has been added by Adobe. It is below.

Today at the Adobe MAX 2010 convention, Research In Motion’s founder Mike Lazaridis, presented a live demo of the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook. The video from the keynote and live demo is after the break.

Adobe and RIM have been working together to make the user experience superb on the PlayBook.  The PlayBook has embed Adobe Flash 10.1 into the internet browser. 
Adobe has also announced a few other great features (video game controller support, Flash 3D full GPU support, etc.) coming to Adobe AIR and Flash. It will be nice to see how many of these features make their way onto the PlayBook.

At the end of the Adobe MAX keynote, some of the Adobe videographers for the online show snagged the PlayBook and showed it to Martha Stewart. She, of course, liked it and said she plans on getting one. So far, it seems to be getting very good commentary. 

The BlackBerry PlayBook is really starting to look great. We’re pretty excited to see the continual advancements and hopefully even more live demos in the near future. So, who is planning on getting a PlayBook now that you’ve seen it running in live action?
