BlackBerry PlayBook

So RIM have unveiled the BlackBerry PlayBook, which may give them some leverage in the market vs Apple. It’s the same size as the Galaxy Tab at 7″ and it has Flash support.

As I mentioned in my previous post, confirmed it uses QNX operating system and it seems to have a decent spec.

Its downfall might be that you need to pair it with a BlackBerry handset to connect to anything, and the fact that BlackBerry App World has a very very long way to go to compete against Android Market and it’s more likely to reach the Sun before it overtakes iTunes. Also, the alarming use of capitals mid-word in the name is a huge negative.

Will this work in a hospital setting? I doubt – unless they issue all HCPs with BlackBerry handsets too!
