The iPad may be ducking Android’s punches, but now RIM has entered the ring it may have a real fight on its hands! This brief demonstration video delivers the first blow, but will the 7″ PlayBook have the staying power to defeat its larger opponent?
The Android assault on the iPad will only begin in earnest when a version specifically built for tablet use appears. It’s expected that version 3.0, or Honeycomb, will be the one and it’s possible Motorola will be the first to use it on a 7″ tablet.
The long awaited Apple software update iOS 4.2 will be available to download from November 12th according to a source from AT&T. The improved OS will bring new features to the iPad and resolve the iPhone alarm bug.
