    Just noticed this news release on CBC that PlayBooks outsold iPads last week. Excerpt below:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Research in Motion Ltd. said its PlayBook tablet computer outsold Apple's iPad last week at a number of Canadian retailers.
    The Waterloo, Ont.-based technology company said on its official @BlackBerry Twitter account that the PlayBook was the No. 1 selling tablet computer last week at Canada's two largest electronics sellers — Best Buy and Future Shop.

    I also spotted this and it is certainly good news, however the price of the PlayBook may have a lot to do with it. once people get it though they probably like it, the fact that the native e-mail is very good, having text prediction onboard now is great, the camera is higher resolution than the IPad2 (please note the date on this (prior to IPad HD release), having the capability to use your BB phone as a remote control works really well for PowerPoint presentations, also being able to open links from the phone on the PlayBook is very useful. There are a lot of strengths to OS2, and price can't makes it very attractive. The more people that have PlayBooks the more Apps will be developed for it.

    Another reason for PlayBook's outselling the IPad2 this week may be that the people who would normally be buying the IPad2 may well be holding off for the announcement on the 7th ready to buy the IPad HD, you just have to look at the number of people that were willing to buy the latest IPhone site unseen.
