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.

Here y'go. It shows several advantages of the 7" form factor: Fits in jacket pocket, back pocket or purse, and can be operated with one hand while doing something else. Video conferencing with any computer (e.g., Skype), Flash games, streaming to HDTV, taking photos and videos, the 32 gig uSD card, and some other nice features are also highlighted. It's just a great "lifestyle" commercial IMHO.

I'm more of a Meego fan personally, but I'm fairly certain the tablet in my future looks more like the Tab than the iPad. YMMV, as always.

But that's not the QNX tablet? :/

Yeah, I'd much rather take MeeGo than Android.
