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.

The insides of the software looks really nice... too bad it'll probably be wasted with proprietary layers of authorizations for apps over proprietary layers of authorizations for services of RIM stuff...

My favorite part about the announcement, was that it has an USB port! ;]

(I hope I'm wrong and they have store-less app installs, non digital certificated-only apps, unencrypted bootloader and stuff... =p ...and maybe Pixel Qi display as on option... =] )

Looks like it might have an HDMI output too.

Wake me up if you find out it has industry standard components such as expandable storage using SDHC, something that Apple is only avoiding because it cuts into their profit margin and hurts their image of being the ultimate evil.
