BlackBerry Playbook OS 2.0 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
24 February 2012
  • Excerpt: To say that RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook has been a sore spot for the company would be an understatement. In our initial review, we chided the PlayBook's lack of basic features, such as a native email client, as well as its buggy software. And we weren't alone.

BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 review

theverge.com
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

Review BlackBerry Playbook WiFi 16GB Tablet/MID

Notebookcheck
3 December 2011
  • Summary: Professional gamer? Blackberry touts its tablet as a symbiosis of entertainment and work. Is the BlackBerry Tablet OS worth being tied to? After all, that excludes the large selection of apps on the Android Market.
  • Pros: Handy size, Stable case, Brilliant colors / good contrast, Bright TFT for outdoors, HDMI video out, Long battery life, Operating concept, The control concept with swiping over the lateral edges. The super bright screen is a knockout.
  • Cons: Only 12 month manufacturer warranty, Time Out can't be disabled, No virtual environment for Android apps, No email client, No SD card slot, A timeout of more than five minutes.

BlackBerry PlayBook Review

SlashGear
12 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Make no mistake, the BlackBerry PlayBook has plenty of potential. The hardware is fast, the design soberly striking (annoying power button notwithstanding) and the QNX OS pulls many of the best aspects from rival platforms into a stable, generally well thought out environment.

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

Gadgetmania
15 August 2011
  • Conclusion: At about the same price, the Blackberry Playbook looks like it’ll make a bad choice over the iPad 2, but if you need a reliable tablet with no frills that is meant to do one thing, and do it well, it may be a better choice, although the iPad 2 is certainly better equipped to handle the ever-changing...

BlackBerry PlayBook review

Pocketables
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. Sure, we might have slammed the tablet from Canada a couple of times here at NBT, but does all of this mean RIM didn’t get anything right? Of course not!
