PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Is Research In Motion still, well, in motion? Heck yeah they are. They just unveiled their long-awaited tablet, christened the BlackBerry PlayBook. It's got a dual-core 1Ghz ARM processor, and it runs... QNX! This alone already makes it the most awesome tablet ever.

Calm down dear, it’s only a commercial.

Apple announced the iPad over two months before it shipped - the 3G model took three months. The white iPhone 4 has been announced four months ago, with no shipping date in sight. It took more than six months for the webOS/Pre from announcement to shipping. Windows Phone 7 - same thing.

It's entirely natural to announce a device with a brand-new operating system 4-5 months early in order to make sure developers get with the program.
