    I don't think it will be an iPad killer, RIM is too far behind on their products.

    could be, but they only have a 1 shot at iPads. if they don't get it right the first time then catching up with bad reputation will be harder. i honestly like to see competition.

    For that one shot on the video it looks like they got most of the iPad's flaws down like multitasking ,flash Media, and the most important to the consumer a camera that records 1080p and it can play 1080p videos. If iPad dose not do something soon I fear that my iPad won't be the best computer tablet on the market anymore:(

    Looks like vapor ware. Lots of pretty screen shots, but they seem more photoshopped than anything. Projected images on to bus stops and picture frames? I agree with the above. Seems like a day late and a dollar short.

    Besides, who "announces" a product and then says it will be available "some time early 2011"?! They're just testing the market for interest.

    I much prefer Apple's technique. Announce nothing until the product is actually being manufactured and the supply chain is saturated. Announce should mean, order today get it in a few weeks. The Apple TV is a recent example of that. Mine's coming on Tuesday... :)

    I suspect that in the 6 months they suggest that the Playbook will come to market that Apple will already be on their third (yes third) iPad. Maybe even their fourth.

    Multi-tasking is coming in November and takes better advantage of the lower power hardware. HDMI is handled nicely through a new $100 network adapter (Apple TV).

    Only think missing is the front/back cameras. If the next iPad has them, I will be upgrading and handing the current 3G iPad to the missus.

    No 3G and the lack of apps, definitely not a killer.

    What kind of autonomy does it have? Two hours?
    What's the OS?

    And please people, stop saying "killer", it can never be true...
