PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless RIM's first quarter results are in and things don't look good. . . RIM said it shipped 13.2 million BlackBerrys and 500,000 PlayBooks. Keep in mind that number is shipped, not sold. That means many of those products could be in the channel or sitting on store shelves somewhere. The company also announced a "headcount reduction" to keep costs in line.

I still want a Blackberry Playbook once it is available in Malaysia. By the time I purchase it most probably (I do hope) it would have had several iterations of updates to its underlying software. Of all the tablets out there, I find the Playbook to be the most interesting. And when RIM ships its smartphone updated with QNX I'd buy that too. Unfortunately RIM's product releases had been glacier. Playbook was rushed, others delayed.
