Sure but there are a few things to consider. Judging by the curves and reflections near the edge of the screen, the surrounds look like brushed metal style plastic, not machined metal and presumably this goes all up the back too. While it's described as being as big as a Samsung Galaxy, the screen isn't much bigger than an iPhone screen - the side bezel looks like it's double the size of the iPhone bezel. The slide-out keyboard looks like you'd hold the two silver parts and slide the screen up, which would explain the odd looking bezel.
It's good to see them veering away from their old designs that they tried to work into every new product and the Playbook QNX OS should be a good benefit over the old OS but out of iPhone competitors, I'd put an Android-based Galaxy S2 above this. If you're going to get a giant phone, you may as well get one with a giant screen instead of one that keeps a small screen to accommodate a physical keyboard.
