RIM PlayBook

The 7in tablet launched in the US this week which features RIM's BlackBerry Tablet OS based on QNX Technologies that the company acquired a year ago.

Although it is possible to port Android apps to the device, reviewers have been underwhelmed by RIM's software offerings, in particular, the Playbook's lack of e-mail and BB Messenger. Not so long ago, the company claimed that the PlayBook would "shame the you know what". Well, the time has come and you'll be able to judge for yourselves soon enough.

The BlackBerry PlayBook will be on these shores before long and we'll let you know as we hear more. You can pre-register interest for further info at Carphone Warehouse or Phones4U. ®
