Judging from this picture,
It looks like the PlayBook LCD will have a low contrast ratio and no where near deep blacks that everyone would love.
From the video, blacks look quite greyish. It might due to it being a beta unit. I'm not sure.
I sure hope the PlayBook delivers deep dark black levels. That would make the display POP

it might also be because its a video of the device through another lense and not a real life view of it. we'll know for sure when the device comes out

"Judging from this picture" may be a very poor way to judge. Do you know that the original actually has deep blacks, or is it perhaps murky water and the ray's back looks dark greenish instead?
Might be better to find something that you know is actually black before jumping to any conclusions.

The video played on the Playbook can be found here:

The colors in the video pretty much match what is shown in the Playbook.
