RIM Unveils Tethered Tablet, the BlackBerry PlayBook | Lots of coverage in tech and business world

The playbook may turn out to be a serious contender to the iPad. It is getting lots of coverage on the tech sites, but also the major news and business sites. It is also getting coverage on the major cable news channels. The 2011 availability is bad news both for Rim and Samsung`s Galaxy Tab; people may hold off buying a Galaxy Tab until they see the Playbook. In the meantime the Apple iPad will continue to rack up sales. The tables has a great feature set, and the decision to tether for 3G makes the tablet easy to lock down in a business environment -- the market with the big money.
