First cool concept apps after RIM bought the UI design firm TAT appear on the PlayBook
At the MWC Expo RIM demoed 3D media interface output to a large TV, interactive Scrapbook app, and a carousel-style Frontrunner multimedia application as some of the apps that The Astonishing Tribe has put together for the PlayBook since being acquired, and we have to say they are impressive, and run without a stutter at 60fps on the powerful dual-core OMAP4 chipset.
One example of utilizing the two cores was when the 3D media interface was output to a TV via the HDMI port, using one core, and the other core took care of a simple animated cursor on the tablet itself, something also made possible by the multicore support of the QNX operating system on the PlayBook.

So where was the 'cool' app? All of this stuff looks like what poor old MeeGo was doing more than half a year ago and not all that different from Android...

MeeGO... what a piece of crap ... that's why Nokia kill it. Playbook will blow anything right now out there including Andriod.
