And a lot of good that did the Playbook, pre OS 2.0 and fire sale.

All the PB is to me, is a slightly more polished Touchpad...neither tablet sold before they hit the $200 threshold, and devs stayed away. An OS and potential doesn't mean squat.

As for running Android apps, whoopty doo, better authentic Android phones and tablets can be had for less.

Honestly, it's Palm 2.0. One time market share darlings, and then frittered away the market because of lack of innovation and hubris.

Even MS is struggling to make a dent now, and they have deeper pockets then anyone not named Apple.
