Anybody see the latest BGR Playbook demo video? QNX is looking like a very nice OS -- combining many elements we saw in WebOS with those we see in iOS with some new twists as well. The only problem I see with this demo is that the software looks very incomplete for something to release in Q1 of next year. I did not even see a simple "Notepad" app for testing the on-screen keyboard, and there was much talk of "yeah it will do that" without demonstrating it -- the person doing the demo seemed to want to keep things limited to the certain apps he knew worked. But if you combine this demo with what we saw of Playbook web browsing a while back it makes for a nice device -- especially if the integration with linking your Blackberry is seamless for email, chat, contacts, and calendar. The only thing missing is a strong base of software and any mention of battery life (which in the 7-inch size can't be great) -- two very important things. RIM is giving away a free Playbook to developers if their app gets approved. That's one way to try to increase the number of apps, but iPad devolpers already own an iPad and may not care to have yet another tablet. Developers care about selling to a potential market -- how big will the Playbook market be? Will you want to go first and be first on the scene or not bother with investing in Playbook development until it is proven? I think that technologically the hardware and OS show promise, I don't know if RIM will succeed with this -- they are certainly laying down their cards early to drum up interest, but they are showing their entire hand to Steve Jobs as well.
