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.

In the US 'playbook' is an euphemism for "a set of strategies." It is not childish, and often shows up in serious contexts

And what's the serious context of the racing game screenshot, application development using Flash, YouTube, and Twitter?

It's not only the name (PlayBook = PlayStation in book format) but also the rest of the advertising.
How can anybody believe in its professionalism and readiness for enterprise if RIM highlights toy features all the time?

Right, PlayBook as name is at risk of a double TM-suit, FaceBook from one side, and PlayStation from the other! :-P
