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.

Yes, it’s QNX under the hood, but can I install my own image on it, is it going to be all proprietary locked down, no-touching, no-hacking? I think they could actually hold ground on the iPad if they let developers hack the system.

If their policy is anything like that of their Phones, then replacing the software shouldn't be that much of an issue. Using an unofficial OS on my Curve was as easy as running an installer executable.

That's not to say they won't go power drunk with their tablet...
