RIM claims Tablet software will be smartphone future

Written by Nick Farell




It is rather good
RIM plans to shove the software in its forthcoming tablet under the bonnet of its BlackBerry line of smartphones.

RIM Co-CEO Mike Lazaridis told Reuters that the platform used in its Playbook tablet will also be used for a generation of smartphones that run more complex, multi-core processors. Lazaridis said that by focusing on the tablet market, Rim sees an opportunity to free where the smartphone can go.

When phones have multi-core processors they'll all be running the Playbook platform.  He did not say when this golden age would come about. RIM is launching the 7-inch PlayBook in the first quarter of 2011 it wants to sell between 2-4 million of them.

RIM will be the next "Palm"....huge success in the business market for a while and sour grapes for lack of multimedia and consumer-friendly features...

I expect the blackberry hype to be completely gone in 2 years or 3.

that's why apps are so popular these days-you can customise your device nearly to your liking in terms of what you want/need, rather than before where you were very limited.so as long as this playbook is user-friendly, and easy to use, it should do well.

RIM. Jobs. Apple.

Nick Farrel could change the market here.

@KB24@CL

I'm guessing you are approx 12 years old and first heard of RIM about six months ago.
