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.

I would like a higher res screen. The minimum I would consider buying is 1600x1200 with 2048x1536 preferred.

In fairness the Playbook has an HDMI output, I think he wants it to Output that, not show as REALLLY tiny on the 7" screen

No point connecting to a nice projector to se big squares ;)

Edit: re-read, thats not what he meant... my point stands though so will leave the comment...

Ah, you mean like those now obsolete laptops that you could buy once upon a time.

This trend towards wider (length pixels) yet smaller (heightwise) GLOSSY screens is also IMHO really, really bad.
Not everoune wants to show the latest Hollywood Shrek pt 49 in super widescreen. Some of us really want to do proper work. As for the lack of matt screens, do these makers ever try their products out in the real world. You know the one with sometimes crap ambient lighting.

A higher resolution screen would be nice but would drastically increase the cost of the item considering it is a 7 inch display.
