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.

Yes, it’s QNX under the hood, but can I install my own image on it, is it going to be all proprietary locked down, no-touching, no-hacking? I think they could actually hold ground on the iPad if they let developers hack the system.
WeTab is supposed to run MeeGo, also run Android apps.

License of MeeGo and QT is ok. Whatever they will lock down the item and application development I have no idea .. Sadly chanses are high for the whole market. Companies are idiots.
