The Biggest Surprise of CES

Wait, is this right? RIM's update to its PlayBook OS is actually good? High fives are currently flying in meetings across North America.

And it's not just that PlayBook's finally going to have native email and calendar support. That's a great first step, but it's also just smooth and attractive and usable. There's a better keyboard with text prediction, easier text formatting, and an updated contact management system that incorporates your Twitter and LinkedIn information. The update should be available in February. Who knows if that's too late, but it's definitely not too little.

Well played BlackBerry. Well played. [BlackBerry]
