Guess What's Been Cleared Up Now that Google's Joined the Tablet Wars?
Google (GOOG) introduced its Nexus 7, the latest would-be Apple (AAPL) iPad killer. Its big debut came just days after Microsoft (MSFT) rolled out the Surface. It's unclear who will win this tablet war, but Google's entry has made one thing infinitely clear: Research In Motion’s (RIMM) PlayBook is not a contender. Tablets are the future, and that means that unless the once-proud Blackberry maker has a surprise announcement up its sleeve for today's earnings call, the company's turnaround hopes are a thing of the past. It's expected to report its first quarterly operating loss in more than seven years. In that case, it could be time to take that company out to the recycling bin.
