PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Fascinating stuff, but not entirely unexpected. As most of you will know, BlackBerry maker Research In Motion is working on a tablet dubbed the BlackPad, and according to several sources reporting to Bloomberg, the device will ship with software written by QNs Software Systems, which RIM purchased earlier this year.

I am SOOOOOOO sick of hearing about what is going to come out. I want to run DNF on my Ubuntu ARM tablet - now!

They are probably waiting for Android 3.0 to make a better initial impact. Therefore they also have time to polish their hardware.

(Be sure to tell this prospective iPad buyers as well - there is no need to get disillusioned and end up buing iPad in a weak moment)

This gap in time should cause a *real* wave eventually.

What's funny is that the only devices that have managed to make the cut are some pseudo-illegal hackjobs. I'm slightly disappointed with the tech industry.
