Does RIM's PlayBook Stand a Chance in 2012?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and technology analyst Evan Niu discuss topics across the investing world.

Research In Motion's PlayBook is set to receive a software update to OS 2.0 that promises to bring some basic features. Just when the PlayBook is about to get caught up in some respects with functionality, the iPad 3 and Kindle Fire 2 are likely incoming and will blow the PlayBook out of the water yet again.

Research In Motion is missing the revolution. However, there's another company to play this amazing opportunity for technology investors. The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion Dollar Revolution" that details a "hidden" component play inside mobile phones that's also absolutely dominating the exploding tech market in China. Inside the report, we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, but you can be among the first to access this just-released report by clicking here -- it's free.
