After watching some videos on the Blackberry Playbook, something became clear. Much like the iPad it’s not about the specs, the size or even the apps. It’s about the build and general slickness. Apps can be written, but if the OS or hardware isn’t there it won’t matter. Many of the current and previous Android tablets missed this. Oh they might have a x Ghz CPU or y amount of storage, but basically they didn’t work. With ought trying one the B&N Nook Color looks like the most successful Android Tablet I have seen, because it is a complete experience.
I think there is a good chance the Playbook could end up being Blackberry’s Dreamcast. A much beloved device that too few realise was that good before it died.
I would check out Linus Tech Tips videos on this.
