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.

No 3G?

This does look interesting but it seems that ATM RIM will 'provide' you with 3G only only via tethering a BlackBerry phone to the PlayBook...Not very compelling, although I can see the marketing 'logic'. I would wait until the promised 3G and 4G iterations. Also, If I were RIM I would be offering a device that came with access to a broadly available wireless network as part of the package. Glad to see QNX getting a bit of a boost, though.
