RIM's Playbook a Winner?

Although panned by critics, Pablo Perez-Fernandez of MKM Partners is very positive about the Playbook, which is Research In Motion's answer to Apple's popular iPad device.

Despite what some recent surveys suggest, BlackBerry users are "fairly loyal" and so they will gravitate towards this new device, said Perez-Fernandez. He also thinks the Playbook will do well because its features are "extremely compelling and has approaches that really haven't been tried or figured out by any of the competitors."

Being as the Playbook allows users to utilize applications from Google's Android table device, Kanundrum Capital founder Brian Kelly wonders why users wouldn't just get the Droid tablet. Kelly would go with Google, as it could benefit from having its applications in another provider's device.

Having been in and out of RIM's stock, the Playbook isn't enough for Karen Finerman of Metropolitan Capital Advisors to get back in.
