PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless For me, the two most interesting products in the operating system space to look forward to are Windows 8 (due to just how different it is), and BlackBerry OS 10. BlackBerry? Yes, and it's simple to see why. The BlackBerry Playbook, while not the most successful tablet, seems to be loved almost universally by its users, which bodes well for BB OS 10. On top of that, it's based on QNX, which is some major brownie points right there. The company has released information on which resolutions the operating system will support.

Agree. I've only briefly experimented with other tablets, but owning a Playbook I find the UI and gestures very intuitive. Apps, well, I don't need the huge numbers that others are clamoring for. I'd happily pay for just a dozen high quality and useful apps.

As for BB10, RIM have stated that it will be available for the Playbook as well, around the time the first BB10 devices are released. It only makes sense since the OS on the Playbook is the base for BB10. The Playbook is the initial testing ground for BB10.

Which dozen? (sure, there's also a lot of fillers, like "apps" which could be just as well an RSS link or an audiobook, but...)
