Despite positive comments on the PlayBook 2.0 update, analysts keep the HOLD rating on RIM's stock
He comments in a note to clients that the PlayBook OS 2.0 update that we demonstrated for you at CES, brings in some impressive new features, but there are a number of headwinds for RIM this year, which makes him take a wait-and-see approach regarding the company's future.
While we believe RIM management is focused on improved product execution during 2012, we believe new BB 10 smartphones will launch into an even more competitive smartphone market, as we anticipate innovative new Android LTE smartphones from multiple OEMs, a significant increase in Windows smartphone offerings from Nokia and other OEMs, and a refreshed LTE iPhone 5 by the time BB 10 smartphones launch.
The BlackBerry Playbook OS 2.0 update is about to hit RIM's tablets next month, the Canadians said, and it brings a number of communications, social networking integration and security features improvements.

Blackberry's been dead in the water for a long time.
They missed their chance when iPhone was only on AT&T and Android was just coming out on T-Mo

The playbook is nice but it's too small and does not support phone calls like original international galaxy tab 7
