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.

p.s. Apple also stated several times they expected the iPad to be a Wi-Fi device, with only some smaller interest in 3g.

Why? Because they understood from day one, that you'd connect it to the wi-fi -> in your house.

That it would be the internet browser that you can carry around from room to room in your house.

3g would imply, the everywhere device.

Now, maybe that's all some people want - a browser for their house.

But that still leaves wide open this opportunity, to have the truly portable, internet connected, personal computer - the smartphone is almost that, but, frankly, the postage stamped sized screen, is never going to be as effective as a larger screen. 7" is plenty large to have productive apps.
