Leaked Android Tablet Lineup

Leaked Android Tablet Lineup reveals some interesting information:  This is an unconfirmed listing of upcoming tablets running android,and it quite possibly reveals some unannounced tablets. What seems to be the most interesting find on the sheet is the March 27th release date of the new RIM blackberry tablet based off of QNX.  If this is accurate it will be exciting to see the operating system first hand, and what goodness RIM has brought to the table.  They certainly have a good name in the enterprise arena, but is that enough to offset the lack of apps and development.  QNX is a very capable OS especially in the media category, yet its initial design assumes from my research an always on power source.  This may take the battery life into a category of unacceptable.

The RIM Playbook certainly might be made much more interesting if the rumor of android apps is to’be believed.  This certainly shouldn’t be too far fetched as a vm environment.  The big question then is what does RIM bring to the market if their key apps are emulated in a VM?  This also would debase their biggest advantage which is enterprise acceptance and security.   It would be wrong to count RIM out of the running, however an underwhelming first entry into the tablet market won’t help plug the holes on their sinking ship. Let us all hope for a nicely competitive landscape as a result of RIM surprising us all.
