∞ LeapFrog releases a PlayBook competitor

RIM fans were quite upset when I compared the PlayBook tablet to the iPad. In fairness, it wasn’t a good comparison because the iPad is so much better. They were also upset when I compared the PlayBook to the legendary Etch A Sketch (probably because the PlayBook lost).

Now there is a new competitor from LeapFrog. The best part is that you don’t need a BlackBerry to use the LeapPad. It’s important to note that neither device does email or calendaring.

    I guess it’s a joke/dig at RIM. But, it’s a cool product too.

    Leap Pads have been popular in schools. Managing the storage of the books and cartridges was a big drawback.

    The color screen based version gets rid of the books, cool.

    Maybe, Leapfrog will buy webOS, from HP.

      I guess you believe that you have an enlightened sense of humor. Sad.

        I guess he thought regular readers wouldn’t recognise concern trolling for what it is. Dumb.

    I have always thought conflating blackberries with rims was bad taste.
