I had heard rumors that Research in Motion’s Playbook tablet would not have its own email and calendar client applications. That you would need to have a Blackberry connected to it so that you could access these services. This seemed just too screwy an idea to be true.
It turns out that someone at Research in Motion didn’t think that this was so screwy and decided that it might be a good way to sell both a tablet and a smartphone. Well, I’ve got news for these folks but this is a totally screwed up idea.
I don’t really see that many people, but extremely hardcore Blackberry users will be interested in paying the price of a full-blown tablet such as the iPad for a device that turns out to be an accessory to my phone.
