  • Highly secure
  • Killer performance

    I don’t think any one should knock RIM. They’ve already one-upped Apple by providing a similar design and idea with better features (ahem multitasking). Hopefully this will shut every yuppy douchebag iPad owner up about their piece of crap toy. I’m definitely getting one.
