This is true, the PB actually has a great processor in it (same processor as the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet uses) and has great performance and all that. I do hope Blackberry doesn't call it quits on Playbook, they know now they will need to be more competitive in pricing, the hardware was there, which traditionally has been a problem with them, and it wouldnt hurt to introduce a 10 inch model.

Not true. You can Overclock the processor and it runs more fluently and actually responds better than the playbook. Jus sayin.

Playbook is ok but a more polished and savy touchpad could easily be the industry leader.. If the Hp Touchpad would have came out at 199.99 no one would even care about a kindle fire .
