More iPads shipped daily than BlackBerry PlayBooks each quarter
iPads an afternoon.
The numbers make for an attractive comparison, even after one gets over the undeniable fact that 17 million iPads in 1 / 4 is in a completely different universe than the PlayBook’s 130k in their own unit. It is not an identical market, then again, because the iPad continues to market their device because the dominant device inside the field – it isn’t a tablet, it’s an iPad – while the PlayBook remains aimed greatly on the hobby user – and businesses. RIM just released an update to the PlayBook’s software this week mentioning to a newly business-friendly level of compliance, mind you.
It’s not as though RIM isn’t marketing the PlayBook, however. They’ve not yet given a touch as to how or maybe if they’ll ever release another tablet again, and do indeed continue to fabricate this unit from not months, but years ago. Have a peek back at our full review of the BlackBerry PlayBook to determine how things were back inside the old times. Now we’re here in 2012 with not only software superiority from both iOS and Android, now we have hardware from all companies coming in and leaving the PlayBook greatly long ago – even the Kindle Fire, a tool that was originally modeled after the PlayBook, now not takes cues from BlackBerry’s designers.
The iPad can be preparing to receive a child brother – or so the rumors say – with the iPad mini legend finally coming to an area where it’d become reality. With a size that’s close to as nearly the PlayBook because it can be and contours that place the hammer down at the heart of the BlackBerry tablet, Apple will – possibly – finally cut the life cord from that device.
