Sigh…this comes as heartbreaking news to me. The reviews for the BlackBerry tablet have come back and let’s just say that these reviews have been less than stellar.

With the release of the iPad2 last week in San Francisco, many competitors are getting worried.

Subscribers are asked to purchase a subscription for 99 cents per week, amounting to just a few pennies a day. Publishing new information daily, this newspaper app enables subscribers to access a wide range of articles covering several genres.
After several tech writers attacked the iPad and proposed changes for the next version, it would appear Apple has listened. According to a Japanese blog, some details about the rumored iPad 2 have surfaced.
