BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 review

23 February 2012
  • Excerpt: When we reviewed the BlackBerry PlayBook back in April , we couldn’t help feeling the device’s insides didn’t match its outsides. The PlayBook is a well-built, good-looking device, but its software was buggy, frustrating, and frankly unfinished.
  • Pros: Much improved performance, Email, calendar, contacts apps are finally native, Smart UI enhancements
  • Cons: Still some bugs, particularly with scrolling, Android app selection is weak, Email app could be better

Blackberry Playbook vs iPad 2 – how does RIM’s first tablet stack up against the tablet king?

15 August 2011

BlackBerry PlayBook review

29 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Sure, the PlayBook from RIM might have been released a couple of months ago. Sure, it isn’t exactly selling as well as anyone predicted.
