BlackBerryOS.com - Three reasons why the PlayBook will succeed
  • Three reasons why the PlayBook will succeed


    In what only seemed like an eternity, Research In Motion has finally released the BlackBerry PlayBook just three days ago, and let me (and millions of other BlackBerry addicts) tell you, the wait was completely worth it. Asides from the PlayBook receiving somewhat negative reviews and early criticism from various professionals, I firmly believe that the PlayBook will succeed in ways people could not even imagine.

    Here are three reasons why the PlayBook will be a direct threat to Apple:

    1. Constant Updates

    Yes, the PlayBook does not have native email support. And yes, it is missing BlackBerry Messenger, which should have been initially launched with the final retailed build. But you know what? Research In Motion is not ignoring these critical updates. I spoke to Shaun Coghlan, Senior Product Manager at R.I.M. at the PlayBook Launch Party this week, and he claimed that although BBM was missing from the launch, it is something that is not going to be delayed for no longer than a couple of weeks. This is great news, because unlike Apple, who neglects critical updates for a lengthy period (copy & paste, anyone?), we can put our faith and trust in R.I.M. to deliver timely updates. And we have also had two PlayBook OS updates in a matter of two days, which is fantastic news for those who love to keep their technology up to date.
