PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless For me, the two most interesting products in the operating system space to look forward to are Windows 8 (due to just how different it is), and BlackBerry OS 10. BlackBerry? Yes, and it's simple to see why. The BlackBerry Playbook, while not the most successful tablet, seems to be loved almost universally by its users, which bodes well for BB OS 10. On top of that, it's based on QNX, which is some major brownie points right there. The company has released information on which resolutions the operating system will support.

I own a Blackberry Playbook by happenstance and it is a great, great device. From using it, I have decided that I prefer a 7" tablet to 10", that the hdmi out is great and that the UI is much simpler and easier to use than other OSs. Slide up to close or move away an app, slide down to see its configuration.

Really simple and effective.

I say this as an Android and Meego lover. What is interesting is that there is a choice of educational content and apps not available on other app stores and it seems that what "little" there is, it is of a high quality.

So, I donĀ“t see the need to distribute 20pixels between two corners as a deal breaker and I am hoping that Blackberry has enough success to keep them afloat, just to keep things interesting.

I definitely hope that they will allow existing playbook users to upgrade to bb10 when it is out.
