Looks like there is a problem with the battery life of Research In Motion’s tablet PC, the PlayBook. After making a splash with it’s introduction, the device has somewhat yielded to the competition. One issue is that the device has trouble keeping up with the 10-hour battery life of the iPad or even with the 6-hour battery life of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab.
Word is that some re-engineering can be expected to get the device in a state where it is ready for release. I hope they work the issues out. It would be a shame if this one was gimped by battery life of all things.
