Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "I am truly shocked that so many people are being duped by BlackBerry's recent announcement of their tablet, the PlayBook. I have read endless comments from people who are saying they can't wait to get this tablet computer. Well, I think I have some bad news for you folks. There is no evidence that the PlayBook exist as advertised. Why do I say this? I will make it brief..."

Not because "some blogger says it". More like - because some blogger has a valid point on the issue, that is worth reading.

His point is that RIM uses CG graphics in their ads, not an actual working unit. Well...boo-hoo? It's pretty common nowadays. They might just be finalizing the actual hardware and didn't have one at hand, and decided it's easier to just do it in CG for the time being?

It's not illegal, nor does it mean such a device doesn't exist.

OTOH, it's true that a commercial means nothing nowadays. Courier's commercials were really appealing, too...

No, but it doesn’t show any level of trust.

Apple: iPad. Here it is, it works, try it yourself, shipping this month.

That is a whole world apart from the trickery RIM is pulling here.

We might complain about the RDF, but Apple seriously know how to not bullcrap us with releases. They will keep it totally secret and then ship the actual real, working product preferably the day they announce it.
