BlackBerry’s been in the news this week, for better and for worse. On the one hand, their co-CEO has been getting bad press for storming out of a TV interview and “moaning” about being underappreciated in a NY Times interview. On the other hand, the company’s long-awaited tablet computer, the PlayBook, is finally launching next week. Early reviews have been mixed, but BlackBerry’s foothold in the enterprise space could spell a windfall for the company if corporate BB smartphone users decide they want a companion tablet literally built to work hand-in-hand with their trusty handhelds.
James Kendrick and I talk PlayBook – with a side helping of Amazon’s new ad-subsidized Kindle – in this week’s installment of Good to Go. Check it out.
Oh, and we’re likely going to take next week off as I’ll be on the road. But we’ll be back Thursday the 28th for sure!
