PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I couldn't get into it yesterday, but today is a new day, and I've got my coffee ready. So, let's dive into reviews of RIM's new toy, the PlayBook. Since my overall opinion on the whole tablet thing can be best summarised as 'meh', my interest regarding the PlayBook focusses mostly on its QNX operating system. As a long-time fan and even regular user of this wonderful piece of technology 'back in the day', I'm interested in what the reviews have to say about it.

It's not that I expect a million apps on day one but I expect a fully usable product for the price they are expecting the Playbook to debut at. I like Haiku yet it is short of quite a few apps the difference is price I can try Haiku for free, same with most versions of Linux and if I don't like them I lost a little time (but hopefully learned something from it) but I am not out any cash. Yes some will say these devices are cheap and for some they may well be I am not one of those people. I have a wife with cancer, a kid in college, a mortgage, insurance and many other things and if I am paying out anywhere between $400 and $600 I want something that works on launch day not someday.
That is just my two cents you can take it or leave it.
