Wow. What an action packed DevCon it has been here in San Francisco. We went into the keynote Monday afternoon hoping but not expecting anything crazy, but RIM sure gave us a nice surprise. In the midst of all the talk of WebWorks and new tools for developers came the big announcement of the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook, RIM's first tablet device featuring the entirely new QNX-based BlackBerry Tablet OS. We have been talking about it nonstop since, and really wanted to break through the glass display its in and get our hands on one. We wound down the week with our CrackBerry App Awards party which was a huge success and even snuck in a podcast. If you missed any of this week's news, click the links below to get informed.
