Review: The BlackBerry PlayBook web browser is tops

31 May 2012
  • Excerpt: I am a huge fan of the web and the mobile web especially. I love capable mobile browsers that let me access and carry out the very things that I do on my desktop or laptop. When it comes to mobile browsing, very few devices are as good as tablets. Having used the Blackberry PlayBook for a while now (and having used other tablets as well), I daresay that its built-in browser is tops in the tablet world.

BlackBerry Playbook OS 2.0 Review

30 March 2012
  • Summary: The BlackBerry PlayBook is without a doubt one of the coolest and sturdiest looking tablet in the 7â€� division. It definitely has the looks, but fell way short on its contents as compared to other tablets. It’s quite surprising that when it was released last year, people were not talking about its features but rather what it lacked which proved crucial to the marketability of this tablet.

BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 review

9 March 2012
  • Summary: So, is PlayBook OS 2.0 too little too late? It could be. The PlayBook is now a very solid tablet for BlackBerry owners and non-BlackBerry owners alike, but the hardware is a year old, it's still not available with mobile network support, and Apple just dropped the price of the mega-popular iPad 2 and announced the new iPad, available on March 16. However, I'm honestly a big fan of the PlayBook. I love the size. It's durable.

BlackBerry PlayBook review

30 January 2012
  • Summary: To say that the BlackBerry PlayBook — and a review of the PlayBook — is something of an anticipated event would be an understatement. From the first moment the tech community caught wind (and sight) of Research In Motion’s first foray into the tablet world, everyone seems to be on pins and needles. It’s not just that another company is making a charge at Apple’s iPad — it’s also that RIM has been in something of a bind lately.
  • Pros: Handsome design, Gestures make the OS easy to navigate, Good battery life
  • Cons: Software feels sloppy, No native email or calendar, Third-party support is awful

Review BlackBerry Playbook WiFi 16GB Tablet/MID

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: Great Tablet, But Not Much to Play With

23 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Once an industry darling, Research in Motion (RIM), the company that makes BlackBerry devices, has lately been navigating stormy seas. RIM’s market share has fallen in key markets like the US thanks to smartphones powered by a visibly aging OS and almost obsolete hardware specs when compared with other top-of-the-line competitors.

BlackBerry PlayBook

Jeffs Reviews
24 October 2011
  • Summary: The BlackBerry PlayBook deserves a second look as an affordable tablet with enough under that capacitive touch screen in the way of hardware to compete against some of those better brands of tablets but a simple option may mar this reviewers recommendation.

BlackBerry PlayBook Review: In Depth

16 October 2011
  • Conclusion: What the PlayBook can do, it does very well. We thought this would be the dry middle-aged tablet, but we’ve been impressed by how well it’s been able to handle video, music (through the great 7Digital music store) and the internet browsing experience. But it’s what the PlayBook can’t do that lets it down. The apps section, one of the core parts of the tablet experience, needs strengthening- a lot. No embedded email client?

The BlackBerry PlayBook: A Working Review

16 October 2011
  • Summary: The PlayBook might be the ultimate diamond in the rough. It features fantastic hardware and great stock features, but with a disappointing app selection and a handful of weird bugs thrown into the mix. I can't recommend this tablet to the average consumer at its $499 entry price. But it may end up worth that a month or two down the line when (if) RIM gets a handle on their app situation.
  • Pros: +Great form factor, +Fast and very powerful multi-tasking, +Excellent camera and file storage
  • Cons: -Terrible at sharing media, -Buggy browser and mixed flash support, -No meaningful app selection
