    Ars Technica today is taking another look at the Playbook, given the intervening time since the initial review.

    Playback: RIMs BlackBerry PlayBook, 18 months later | Ars Technica

    The article again praises the hardware, putting it at par with other current devices. It unsurprisingly bemoans the apps situation - apparently the writer hasn't been watching CrackBerry! The article surprisingly gives little mention to Bridge, which in my opinion is one of the appealing features of the Playbook/BlackBerry combo. Overall a reasonable article, though it seems like it could have used a little more research.

    Though it's possible to access and manage third-party cloud storage services like Dropbox and Box.net, it's taxing to have to download a document, edit it in the PlayBook's included Docs To Go app, and then manually re-upload it. Back in its heyday, RIM was successful because of how well the BlackBerry cloud services integrated with the enterprise, but it's time for RIM to evolve and integrate with other services besides Microsoft Office. This is especially important if RIM wants to lure back those who have switched from BlackBerry to a more widely used mobile operating system like Android or iOS.
