Hmm... RIM may be doing all this but I am not sure they will be able to compete in the market. I feel like the market is flooded with so many different choices that consumers are confused. So the consumer is simply going for the iPad because it is easy.
Well a lot of people went towards the HP TouchPad when it's price was heavily discounted; so this discounted price is a really good idea because if word gets out that it's a great cheap tablet then PlayBook sales will go through the roof the same way the TouchPad did. I hope...
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
Well maybe that is true about the discounted price, but I have read that the brand name blackberry ain't doing so well no more. In fact they seemed to be only for the business market really & now there is a whole lot more android based smart phones that has out done the blackberry name & so I guess that maybe they left it too late to bring this tablet out.
News:Should RIM abandon tablets like HP did?
"NO, RIM and other companies should keep on making Tablets, so we can then get them for $99 when they fail to sell, which is what every company current and future manufactures of tablets, has or will realize at one point, that the Tablet Market is Only for Apple, leave that alone. The competition can have a faster processor, more RAM, and more features, but they dont have an extensive and as deep of a support as the Ipads, in terms of Applications and fluidly in user experience, everything just works great on the Ipad."

Wow... You're saying that you want Apple to have a monopoly over the tablet market?
Competition exists for a reason. I mean just look at AT&T; they had a monopoly for over 60 years before the DoD took action to split them up. I mean without competition, there's no innovation and you have to pay higher prices for everything. I mean do you want to pay $1,000 for your iPad?
In any case, what I said above applies. If discounted enough; they can get word of mouth out and they can get people to buy their tablets and make it a "profitable" part of the business. I mean if everybody wanted them to fail just so we can get $99 tablets; well that's low in the lowest possible form. They put alot of R&D dollars into this product, they expect them to sell like hotcakes and yet we let the company lose money while we wait for it to drop down to $99, what are we thinking? This is why the economy is the way it is, because of this.
Samsung is doing well with their tablets, so I ask why RIM, HP and all these other manufacturers have yet to realize simple fact that could lead to their tablets selling like hotcakes. I guess we will never know...
