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.

What I like about tablets is actually the customized-for-the-task-at-hand-and-nothing-more-applications, which seems very "unixish" but kinda have got lost in all the office packages, play-all-sorts-of-media-mediaplayers, e-mail clients, calendars and so on.

It's also the opposit of run-everything-in-some-tab-of-your-browser.

I think facebook status updates is somewhat usable, I think a simple picture browser is to, a simple IM-client, stock tracking, RSS-reader and so on.
