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.

iPad is a million times worse than Playbook. A "pad" is nothing in either Dutch, German, or French.

I don't know about Dutch and French but in German it's pretty common to say mouse pad, touch pad, etc.
IT-related phrases are almost completely English here.

Not only that but Star Trek TNG tells its viewers since 25 years what a "pad" is.
