  • Editorial: Why The PlayBook Was Released Right On Time



    The masses are extremely excited about OS 2.0 for the PlayBook being released this month. Many feel it completes a solid product that was originally launched half-baked and incomplete. For this reason, the PlayBook and RIM have taken some major hits across tech blogs worldwide. It simply feels like this approach was not thought out and that Research In Motion should've waited to get all native PIM functions (calendar, email; etc) working on the PlayBook before releasing it to the public. Not doing so was a mistake that hurt how the PlayBook has been perceived... Or was it?

    In the short term the answer is obvious, yes it hurt. In the long term though I'm thinking the fact that they got the PlayBook out, incomplete or whatnot, to the public will actually benefit us as end users. Why?

    Well let's think, if they would've decided to hold off on releasing the PlayBook incomplete and decided to get all these wonderful things we're expecting OS 2.0 to have on there, how long would it have taken them to release the PlayBook and what would it be like?
