Maybe it'll be nice. Maybe it'll be deeply flawed. I'm very curious about battery life, since the specs sound pretty power hungry.
At any rate, about the best we can say at this point is that RIM is going to bring a 5"x7" touch tablet to market running an OS they recently purchased and that given the specs it should be reasonably speedy. Beyond that (and by every metric that really counts-- ease of use, interaction with eco-system, if any, battery life, quality of apps) we don't really know anything.
Well, you're right, I'm calling the device we see in the video cool. The actual device could be far from it, and delayed lol. In fact, it's not unlikely they say this thing will come out at a certain time, and when that time gets here, they delay it, not because something new has come up, but because that's what the plan was all along. Just so long as they can keep people from buying a tablet from now until when they promise it's coming.
Either way, all that stuff that dude listed was just bizarre. It's like he's trying to convince himself not to consider this thing more than anyone else.
