  • Why BlackBerry PlayBook is an ideal tablet for business

    The BlackBerry PlayBook is available for pre-order, and will be on the street in a matter of weeks.

  • Tablet revolution reality check

    With so much chatter about tablets this year, you might think that the handheld, rectangular devices being unveiled represent a significant innovation.
