Its release date was announced during CTIA Wireless convention, in Orlando. During the same event, Samsung had also announced its two new galaxy tabs.

This new Blackberry smartphone will mark a comeback for the Blackberry Company, which has lost its digital market share in the smartphone world, over the past few years.

This Playbook is pretty much similar than the other smartphones available in the market. This playbook has a 7 inch display and 1080p video, which is not an extraordinary thing.

When Playbook is compared with the existing products like iPad2, Xoom and tablets like LG glass free device, it seems to be superior to the rest.

Playbook is available for pre-order, with three different models and prices. It is available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB, and its prices are $499, $599 and $699 respectively.


Climate should not be confused with weather

According to the climate scientists, weather and climate should not be confused with each other, and the common concept of “record cold, snowstorms and devastating flood are conflicting with the notion of a warming world” does not make any sense.
A multi-decade long warming trend is stronger than individual cold months or years
The world has been witnessing drastic weather changes for the past few years. However, it is the ultimate truth that a single event, month or year does not make a trend.
Since the past several decades, the world has been warming gradually, and 2000-2009 was the warmest, as per the record.
Though there are lots of ups and downs in the degree of warmness due to the variability in air temperatures, the data shows a warming trend across the globe which is statistically significant.

Ryan Gavin, Microsoft's Senior Director for Internet Explorer Business and Marketing, posted on the official blog of Internet Explorer, “We want to thank everyone around the world for downloading IE9 and the enthusiastic reception. 2.3 million downloads in 24 hours is over double the 1 million downloads we saw of the IE9 Beta and four times that of the IE9 RC over the same time period”.
Microsoft still to set record with IE9’s initial download
Ian Paul of PC World has brought a measure of the download numbers of IE 9 against other browser launches before us.
According to him, "The beta version of IE9, by comparison, was downloaded 10 million times in its first six weeks of availability, but only one million times in its first 24 hours. Microsoft won't be setting any records with IE9's initial download numbers, however, considering Firefox 3 in 2008 was downloaded more than 8 million times in its first day."
