Default Re: Playbook Education

Only someone in Waterloo would spin Playbook sales. You are proud and that's your right.

The Playbook was a complete and total failure and was a waste of precious resources at RIM/BlackBerry. How many TOTAL were sold? 2 million? 1.75? The original iPad (never updated) is almost two years old. And the "new" 4G iPad - please, it was barely even marketed. And to those who have said "it was the basis for the QNX based Z10" then the coders didn't learn enough from it.

No, it's a dud. I am sure you can spin numbers anyway you like, but try to be honest. The PB barely is mentioned when tablet sales numbers are published. It is lumped in with "other".

I am sure the user base is quite passionate about it - and on another forum they KNOW they are right and the rest of the world is wrong, but that doesn't change any of the numbers. It's a dud.
