PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "BlackBerry maker Research In Motion launched its new PlayBook tablet computer Thursday amid poor reviews and a scramble to make more third-party applications, big hurdles to overcome if it is to compete in the hot market dominated by the iPad. The Waterloo, Ont., firm is pulling out all the stops to encourage development of apps - the games and tools that tie users to their tablets. Steps include loosening the company's own strict app-building rules, as well as the recent decision to support applications built for Google Inc.'s Android platform."

The verdict on that seems to be that it is still rough, yet shows promise.
