Analyst Shaw Wu from Kaufman Brothers states “RIM may be forced to delay the release of its first tablet computer, the BlackBerry PlayBook.” Wu also states he is hearing that the PlayBook “needs to improve its relatively poor battery life of a few hours compared to 6 hours for the Samsung Galaxy Tab and 10 hours for [Apple's] iPad.” Wu estimates the launch of the BlackBerry PlayBook could be delayed until May 2011. Wu also said the battery issue may have something to do with the fact that QNX was built around the principles always having a power source and not in the need of a battery like for cars. What do you think? Please feel free to share your thoughts on this possible delay here on this post or in our NerdBerry Forums.
