Jim Balsille Demos the PlayBook and Announces Torch and App World 2.0

Comment

RIM CEO Jim Ballsille keynote at Gitex 2010

Jim Balsillie was at GITEX (Gulf IT Exhibition) in the UAE, showing off the PlayBook and announcing App World 2.0 and the Torch in the Middle East. The PlayBook is the hottest thing we’ve ever seen from RIM and regardless of what the analysts say, it’s going to kill it in the tablet market. Not only that, but the beginning of the QNX revolution has started in RIM and it’s going to give a new life to BlackBerrys. Overall, things are looking pretty good but considering the hassle that the UAE government gave RIM over access to information, they were fortunate to see a live demo and get so much love from RIM.
