BlackBerry Playbook Tablet: 10 Reasons Why it Won’t Sell

We have told you our impressions of the RIM BlackBerry Playbook, but now we have an article to show you which states 10 reasons why the recently announced device isn’t a good idea.

The article in question comes from eWeek, as they believe that RIM’s tablet may struggle to compete with the likes of the Apple iPad, which is clearly ahead of the rest in the tablet department.

They think that RIM’s decision to include a 7-inch display for the Playbook is suspect, adding that most consumers have accepted the fact that the 9.7-inch size of the iPad is ideal – Do you agree?

Furthermore, they have also criticized RIM’s marketing strategy for the device, and said that the missing 3G feature is a big issue. Then of course they will have to compete with the Apple App store for software, that in itself could be a big problem for RIM.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you agree with the early criticism of the Playbook or not? Check out the full article over at eWeek.

    The only device that will knock the iPad of it’s pedestal is one with everything the iPad has with addition of flash. There is a mobile samsung phone coming out soon that will have flash so everyone may want to worry about Samsung putting out a device that will trump both of these.
