You can get a great deal on “something else”
The BlackBerry PlayBook is RIM’s first tablet, and it is also the first device to launch with the company’s new QNX-based mobile operating system. While the tablet can now safely be lumped into a large pile of similar offerings that are not faring well against Apple’s iPad, many analysts still have high hopes for RIM’s next-generation QNX platform.
Now it’s not all bad news for RIM. They haven’t announced plans to stop production of the PlayBook. And then changed their mind. Like a certain other tablet’s company has.
For a company that once dominated the business market, it has to be disappointing to be lumped in with all the “similar offerings.” Despite the TouchPad and all the other recent “offerings” in the tablet market, it’s still the iPad and “everything else.”
So how did Apple become the dominant force in the tablet market?
I wonder if there’s an app for that?
