PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless With WebOS out of the picture and the Blackberry Playbook as good as gone as well, we really only have iOS and Android left until Windows 8 comes out. I’ve finally gotten around to getting an Android device myself and spent the last week trying to see if my theoretical knowledge of the system and what I remember from the last Android device I had (which ran 1.6, viewed as ancient in Android land) fits reality. Read on for a full tear down and comparison on the two OSes.

Sorry, but the PlayBook is here to stay. The OS is already terrific and OS Version 2 will even blow the sceptics away. The recent price cuts seem to play out for RIM, since they actually sold out in many locations and thus create more demand for Apps that developers will address.

So, wrong assumption, IMHO.

Wishful thinking. I like RIM too, but unless they manage to do a complete 180 degrees on their management and execution strategies, the company is as good as dead. Sad too, as they have acquired some great (QNX) technology that could have given them an edge in real-time processing.
