Forget XOOM, sue your rivals instead analyst advises Motorola

Forget XOOM, sue your rivals instead analyst advises Motorola

Since you can't beat 'em, sue 'em - that's the advice from one analyst to Motorola Mobility, who calls the Motorola XOOM a failure, Honeycomb "dead on arrival" and the Android Market "a disaster." Global Equities' Trip Chowdry throws out a hugely-ranging estimate for the number of XOOM tablets sold - between 15,000 and 120,000, he reckons - and suggests that, Fortune reports, rather than attempt to compete with Apple and RIM, Motorola should aim to pick off its Android OEM counterparts with patent lawsuits.

Verizon Undecided About Carrying BlackBerry PlayBook

Verizon Undecided About Carrying BlackBerry PlayBook

RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook just launched yesterday without much fanfare and doused with lukewarm reviews. And now, it may have a difficult time getting carriers to take on the product. The PlayBook released yesterday was only the WiFi version, with plans for a 4G version to come later. RIM has said that it expected Verizon Wireless to be a distribution partner for its PlayBook, but today the carrier said that it has not yet confirmed the decision.

A Half-Baked PlayBook is the tip of the Firmware Nightmare

A Half-Baked PlayBook is the tip of the Firmware Nightmare

If there's one message that comes through loud and clear about the BlackBerry PlayBook - both in our review and in others - it's that RIM's first tablet is half-baked in its current state. The 7-inch slate is dependent on a phone for half of its key apps, glitchy in more places than it should be, and has left reviewers warning would-be early-adopters that it might even be too early for them to consider, well, adopting. Welcome to the firmware nightmare, where every device is a work-in-progress and nobody is ever quite satisfied.
