    It does not matter if the PlayBook is connected via WiFi or not.

    Tomorrow the Playbook will not have e-mail, calendar, video chat, Skype, Notes, GPS, messaging, or even contacts, WiFi or not.

    Someday soon every missing feature is promised to appear. Flash was supposed to be coming "soon" for the Palm Pre when it launched in June, 2009.

    We have learned to buy a device based on what it can do right now, today, not what we hope it might do someday soon.

    And the reason for doing email, calendar, chat, and all the rest on a tablet is that the tablet screen is so much bigger. If a phone is a better way of doing these things, why would you buy the tablet?

    The BlackBerry PlayBook was Overrated. Now it's Underrated Again.

    RIM won the first round with the PlayBook: generating huge pre-release interest among tech’s chattering classes for its tablet.

    With moves such as promising Android compatibility and claiming that “many corporate clients have approached us about each wanting tens of thousands, several tens of thousands of PlayBooks”, it whipped up expectations that no company except one with the address One Infinite Loop could have possibly matched.

    So it was no surprise that the reviews for the PlayBook were on the whole so negative.

    RIM: Looking for New Leadership in All the Wrong Places

    I actually liked the idea of the Palm Foleo, an interesting product that was aborted in 2007 in order to create the failed Palm Pre. The Foleo, which was also somewhat similar to the new Motorola Atrix, was a laptop-like accessory for its once-popular Treo phone, created by Palm's legendary founder Jeff Hawkins.

    The PlayBook is basically a tablet version of the Foleo, but it arrives after the market has become entranced with the iPad, which is a stand-alone device. Yes, like the Foleo, the PlayBook isn't fully functional without a BlackBerry phone attached to it.

    RIM came up with the brilliant idea to run android apps on it, but unfortunately it missed the meeting where we discovered that many Android apps are malware infected, and the apps the PlayBook will run are the phone apps, not the tablet apps. At one time, RIM was known for security. Now, when asked about, its CEO walks out of the interview. That's just nuts.

    But RIM is no Palm, that's for sure.
