900 BlackBerry PlayBooks recalled
An inside source for Engadget revealed on the weekend that Staples was recalling 900 of Research in Motion's BlackBerry PlayBooks. RIM has since come out to say it was a faulty OS build that those particular PlayBooks shipped with, and it is restricted to this puny batch—most of which are still in distribution and not yet sold. So overall, this is hardly even a blip on the radar.
Dell Streak 7 launches in Canada
For anyone who cares (this is where the crickets chirp), Dell's 7-inch streak has officially launched in Canada after some delays. It will cost $400—cheaper than the entry iPad and PlayBooks—and a dual-core processor. Its problems lie in terrible cameras, a horrible quality screen, and worst of all, Android 2.2—with, disturbingly, no plans for upgradability to Honeycomb 3.0. Really? (It's also hideous looking.)
