The article is very well written as the most useful information such as bill of material of the cards inside, are presented in the first couple of pages. The improvement I would suggest would be to incorporate a better way of browsing to a particular page...it is difficult to browse back to page number one again from 20. :)

Its a tough market. APple and Samsung already in fight where is the space for RIM unless they get more user frendliness approach in their products.I have Motorola's droid razor and I love it.

I think the article was concise and well-eritten and would have suffered if abbreviated. Re the negative tone on the first few paragraphs, how does a responsible journalist deny a product's history?

Yeah, but ferrites are very useful when making efficient voltage converters. Or do you have a better solution?

Melgross, but the world does not revolve around Apple products my friend, now a days there are many options! and to assume that only the Apple cult followers are the only valid population to follow is to be deluicional. I won't drink that cool aid, I am happy with my choices. But i won't claim that are the only valid ones ;-) so chillax and let other people live with their free will.

On the communication board there are 4 parts with white dos. I think they are ferrite core transformers.They add weight to the product and also bulky.

I think RIM is about to go the way of Palm Pilot. Blackberry was once on top and is still a good product, but eclipsed by Apple and Samsung.

Please, don't make things up. Surveys of iPad owners (I'm one) have shown that 90% wouldn't buy another product. Certainly not a Playbook. If anyone would buy something else, it would be anything other than a Playbook.

I have tried Playbook several times. In itself Playbook is a decent product. However the ecosystem ( apps +developers+ content) lacks big time. Hence I dont have much hope for this.

Writers need to cool it with the RIM negativity. My friends, who all own ipads, think playbook is an excellent product and would probably buy one instead of a new ipad. If you guys would let people think for themselves instead of spewing bad stuff about RIM products, then maybe sales would take off.
