They always reserve more than 50% of the so called "Room for improvement"
AS we can see, the playbook's size and the shape, the screen were all totally 90% perfect to any user.
Will someone remind the inventor of this techno gadgets to take a leap of evolution. We might get tired of forward-back-forward-back.
Somebody hasn't a clue about mobile devices and mobile OS. Core i7 is NOT/Never was/Never will be a fit for a mobile tablet OS - unless its the full Windows. Mobile OS or smartphone OS NEED a power efficient ARM cpu - its the most powerful, it offers Symmetric Multi-Processing and its just more efficient at lower cpu cycles and if coded correctly does NOT require huge amounts of RAM to be powerful and energy efficient.
Right now this is the ONLY Dual-Core cpu in ANY smarpthone/Tablet announced - officially. The Tegra2 - which uses Cortex A9 architecture has 8 processors; 2 Dual-Core CPUs - while the other 8 are for memory controller, baseband, DSP, etc not application cores.
I really believe RIM should have this with WLAN+BT2.1 EDR released but quickly follow-up with an HSPA unit (1080P video conferencing will NEED better than 7.2Mbps down and 2Mbps uploads - current BB's and over BT (bluetooth 2.1EDR) does not support that kind of bandwidth - using inferior codecs is a bad move if that is what RIM is planning.
