What does the Blackberry PlayBook mean for mobile music?

Lots of sites have the news about this new tablet from Blackberry. So what does it mean for mobile music creation?

My short answer is probably nothing. I have to admit that I've never paid much attention to Blackberry as a platform as it is so heavily targeted towards business use. I don't know of any music making software for Blackberry at all. So I don't think this is really going to be a content creation device in the same way as the iPad or Android tablets could be.

If I'm wrong I'd love to know though.

This isn't really BlackBerry device at all - it was apparently under development at QNX well before their acquisition by RIM. QNX is a truly great OS for real-time work, and this device could be the first real contender as an iPad competitor if the hardware is up to scratch. Certainly the OS will be power-efficient and applications will run fast, with very efficient multi-threading (essential for music apps) and overall is a much better platform for music app development than Android.

Looking forward to playing with one of these.
