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.

People are buying ipads as web browsers, not for the app store.

It would be nice if they got it to around 4-5 hundred but I could still see people paying a premium for it over the ipad.

Better size, higher DPI, dual core, Flash, ARM battery life, Blackberry functionality and "playbook" is a great name on top it all.

QNX is just icing on the cake. This is a very strong entry, I'm impressed.


Right, because the several billion applications [> 1 billion for just the iPad alone] are copies of Safari for the iPad.

/5 to get rid of everything which is just variation of something else + 99.5% crap?

Just guessing.

Anyone want to share some truth for how it looks? I have neither device.
