  1. After several months of anticipation Research In Motion's debut tablet, the BlackBerry PlayBook, is almost here. The company began seeding the device to the press in anticipation to next week's launch and now the first reviews are starting to trickle in. For the most part it seems reviewers came out pleased with the PlayBook's look and feel, and agree that the QNX-based operating system -- which borrows heavily from Apple's iOS and HP's webOS -- works smoother than anything RIM has produced recently. But as expected the bad news is that, at launch, there's still a lot missing.

    They don't 100% suck but are disappointing to say the least. They just don't have the wow & functionality factor of Apple's iOS and with such missing features as email, 3G/4G, barley any apps at, and a bunch of other items not ready at lunch it is just too bad. They have been talking about this product since the iPad 1 was released and iPad 2 is here and they are way behind iPad 1's features.

    Companies have to keep in mind that it's not only the tablet, it is the OS that is very crucial. Although the iPad doesn't have the best specs, the iOS and their apps blows the competition away. Obviously with growing competition, it means better products for the consumer which is the most exciting news about all of these companies coming out with tablets this year.

    They keep on saying they are going after the business tablet user but the tablet market is very unique and I'm not too such how many business user's would utilize the BB Pad over the countless features of an iPad.
