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.

At the end of the commercial RIM states that this tablet is "enterprise-ready and professional" but then they display the name PlayBook.


It's a sports connotation.

Maybe it will have international marketing issues but in the US it is a much better name than iPad.

Aren't the reading pads in Star Trek TNG not called "pad" in the US?
Well, in the German dubbing of TNG they were always called like that and I'd guess the translators took the name from the original language.
25 years of free (= no cost for Apple) education what a pad is.
