RIM: Planned 10-inch Blackberry Playbook Canceled?

It looks like RIM got the info – consumers aren’t exactly flying on the BlackBerry Playbook. The same site that broke specs about the 10-incher a few weeks ago is now reporting that it’s been canceled. Like killed dead.

Apparently development resources are needed for RIM’s next big project: A QNX BlackBerry superphone. The phone doesn’t have a name or code name, it doesn’t have a release date, or any other details are known. It is possible, the way RIM is going right now, this so-called superphone might be their last chance to at the much anticipated glory.

In any case, it is probably best for RIM to stop developing another product that will likely have the same destiny as its forerunner. The Playbook hasn’t found a lot of fans although the company keeps rolling out updates. But as HP is soon going to find out with the TouchPad, producing a good product is only part of the equation nowadays. You need a decent  development community, actual dedicated fans and of course a good design and made product.
