Jim Dalrymple's Take on RIM PlayBook Strategy

they don’t have one:
I have been waiting for RIM to show the world that one big last thing that would drive the masses to by the PlayBook. That one thing that nobody else has, that will drive everyone crazy. Yesterday, they did it. RIM announced an emulator to run Android apps.

An emulator. That is the big thing for RIM. This is what makes the PlayBook better than an other tablets on the market. An emulator.

So, let me see if I have this right. The PlayBook hardware copies the iPad; the PlayBook operating system copies Apple’s iOS and Palm’s WebOS; and because it has no apps of its own, RIM makes an emulator so its users can load another platform’s apps on its device.

You almost have to wonder when the Commodore 64 emulator will come to the PlayBook. Really, if you’re going to screw your customers, why not go all the way.
