    After all the hard work they put into making good products people still doubt what they do. This blackberry tablet is going to be just like the storm

    Wow, topic collision in this thread. :)

    Who is doubting what Apple is doing? 3 million+ iPads can't be wrong...

    While I'm not a blackberry fan, lets not judge a product no one has touched yet.

    2010 tablet sales:
    Apple iPad- 3million+ < Blackberry Tablet- 0

    Blackberry wins and Apple is still the underdog, good luck playing next year.

    Apple is as much an underdog as Windows is suffering from bluescreens. Some people should finally wake up and realize that this is the year 2010 and that certain facts have changed.

    Apple has always been the under dog, at least in the computer industry.

    It's never a company for small number of vocal nerds who resist it.

    Apple's only the underdog when it comes to Software. Outside of that - in mobile technology and computer sales - they're ahead of most of their competitors in sales.

    Very soon, apple won't be the underdog (if they are now). Every new product they make is a product that everybodys heard of and they get the most media coverage cause of all the awesome hype they build.

    A few days ago, briefly, Apple's market cap was second globally only to Exxon-Mobile.

    Hardly could be considered an underdog in any regard.

    Apple is one of the most admired and richest companies in the world. Saying Apple is an underdog is like saying the New York Yankees are underdogs all the time. LMAO at some of insecuries I read on here. People shouldn't say the BB Playbook is like the Storm. It hasn't been releaaed yet. When faced with adversity is when some can rise to the occasion. RiM had their back against the wall and needed this.

    Yeah, this is the difference between Apple and the other companies.
    Others always show a product months before the production just to say "Hey, we're here too" — But doing this, they reveal their plans too early.

    The iPad 2 will eat the PlayBook.

    If Apple was an underdog, they would have been able to negotiate some better content deals for the Apple TV. At this point, Apple is considered a behemoth by it's competitors and content providers.

    Apple is no longer the underdog.

    They are the man.

    Face the facts, people. It's time to find a new hip, niche technology company and to jump on their bandwagon.

    No sorry, Windows is still a substandard OS that has zero control of the processes running on it, a shoddy networking stack, and continues to plod along with poorly designed UI elements.

    And blue screens do happen, even in 2010.

    My macbook pro kernel panic'd twice today, a co-worker had a kernel panic on his machine too. Every OS can and will crash.
