The implied value for the BB tablet OS is around 150 dollars, is this reasonable?

That's the million dollar question, isn't it? When the iPad first came out, many immediately dismissed for the enterprise and said it would only work as a CE gadget. I think there are a lot of people that still believe that. However, there are those that say that tablets will be big in the enterprise space, and obviously RIM is banking that this is true. I don't own a tablet. But I could see where it would offer certain advantages over a laptop in my line of work. The weight would make it easier the lug around, and the always on, always connected experience would save time. I could see this product coming in handy at work, but not as a replacement for my laptop. So I think it will be a while before we see tablets issued as standard equipment in most industries.

Very interesting. Now, from a business point of view. Why would I need this again?

Price- you can buy one from shopblackberry.com. 16Gb=$499, 32GB=$599, 64GB=$699. It's pretty similar to--or I guess slightly less--than pricing for iPad2. There are some less expensive tablets out there (and a few more expensive ones), but it seems clear that RIM is aiming directly at the Ipad's target market. You can get a Samsung Galaxy Tab for less if you sign up for a two-year service contract.

playbook is quite an interesting name. It reminds me of the toddler's sketchbook :-)

I think TI also can provide a performance scalable hardware for RIM to produce higher performance tablets in future.

It would be good to see all pictures on one page instead of many pages. This should definitely provide a good start for blackberry tablets. They should concentrate more on application development to actually beat the apple ipad2 and Samsung galaxy tablets.
