Even though the BlackBerry PlayBook has the technical prowess to impress the most discerning tech connoisseurs, few consumers will get their hands on Research In Motion's new tablet until after the holidays.
The Canadian tech leader, which unveiled the device at a developers conference in San Francisco on Monday, has scheduled its general release for the new year.
As a consequence, RIM may have to be content for now with owning the corporate segment, where its roots run deep. Analysts say that may prove a nice problem to have.

Foreign investment will play a secondary role in resolving India's infrastructure deficit in the near term given the complexity of completing projects, executives and officials told the Reuters India Investment Summit this week.
Power, for example, attracted $1.44 billion in foreign direct equity investment in the most recent financial year -- a pittance in the context of India's hopes for $350 billion to $400 billion of funding for power for the five years starting in 2012.
"I don't see any completely independent plants being set up by foreign companies," Bal Krishna Chaturvedi, the government Planning Commission member in charge of energy and infrastructure, said in an interview for the Summit.

Mid-sized Indian IT services firm MindTree Ltd is looking to launch its 3G smartphone based on Google Inc's Android platform in the United States in the second half of this fiscal year, and expects fiscal 2011 revenue to top the industry average, its CFO said.
"The official industry revenue this year as put out by Nasscom (industry body) is up 13-15 per cent and we believe we will exceed that," Rostow Ravanan told the Reuters India Investment Summit on Wednesday.
The company, which posted revenue of Rs 1,233 crore in fiscal 2010, also expects this rise to boost margins.
MindTree is in talks with at least one major US carrier for the launch of its smartphone announced in April.
Ravanan said the company is not currently looking to launch the phone in India.
