BlackBerry Playbook sales encouraging

PhoneArena reports that RIM has sold 250,000 BlackBerry PlayBooks and expects that RIM may be able to sell 3,000,000 tablets in 2011. Given that it is expected that 70 million to 100 million tablets will be sold this year, that gives RIM 3-4% of the tablet market. Not too shabby for a niche product.

With its 7-inch size, multitasking OS, promised Android App compatibility and US$499 retail price, this is my personal favorite second generation tablet. Now lets hope BlackBerry gives a phone worthy of the PlayBook.

I wonder when this lands in the Philippines. Am in no rush, the Samsung Galaxy Tab has been with us just for 5 months so far.
