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.

I came close to getting a Playbook, got a Nexus 7 instead. It came down to support in the end. Which one had the apps I need regularly, and which one was looking likely to have continued support. But, what really sealed the deal was seeing the Nexus 7 side by side with the playbook. The latter just looked chunky and old school for some reason. Loving 7" though. Totally.

I got the Playbook after trying to open teamcoco.com videos on many platforms. The Playbook opened videos similar to how desktops behave, and played them in the background while I switched to another app. Other tablets either would not open the videos or took a very long time to start.

No idea what Team Coco is, but if it relies on flash - that might be your issue.
