There is no doubt that RIM will be hitting CES hard this year, showing consumers and the techies among us what the BlackBerry Playbook has to offer.

In anticipation of the event, RIM has uploaded a new video to its YouTube account demonstrating and documenting how well the Playbook supports different web technologies. In the video we get to see HTML5 video playback, Flash support for both video and games, delving into Facebook Chat and the different games that are available on the popular social network.

The tablet has been demonstrated a couple of times now, the first time showing us how quick it was compared to the iPad, the second in a lengthy overview video.

The video is only 3:18m long – sit back, watch the video and tell us that the Playbook doesn’t excite you ever so slightly.
