RIM BlackBerry PlayBook revamp confirmed by the Wall Street Journal

Playbook

RIM just got a new CEO. A new, singular CEO who is actually very excited for the future of the company. That's really awesome, because the more enthusiasm a CEO has for the company he or she is running, the more that person will push its employees to achieve excellence. 

According to the Wall Street Journal, his first project is to revamp the BlackBerry PlayBook. The first PlayBook was a pretty decent tablet, although the lack of a lot of well-known apps at launch (and the fact that the apps available might not have always been the best) hurt its reputation a lot. Thankfully, BlackBerry 2.0 will come with the Android app emulator, which should help to alleviate some of the pain caused by the included App World. 

We don't know any more about the project except for what we learned from RIM's leaked PlayBook roadmap from last week. Hopefully we can see a glimpse or two of the new PlayBook before the rumored release month of April.
