It wasn’t so long ago that the corporate BlackBerry was a badge of a serious
business. But then along came the iPhone and Google’s advanced Android
operating system – such seriousness started to look like a staid rejection
of the latest technology.
Now, as every major technology company strives to launch a tablet computer to
catch some of the iPad’s magic, BlackBerry is launching one too. The 7”
PlayBook will go on sale in America next week and across Europe later on
this quarter – already, however, major commentators are asking if BlackBerry
is going the unfortunate way of Nokia.
