Excerpt: I recently came into ownership of a Blackberry Playbook tablet (pictured above). In this blog post, i will share my first impressions on the device, based on just two days of usage. What is it exactly?
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.
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.
Summary: Overall, BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 is a solid update for the PlayBook. However, most of the improvements it brings to the table are features that should have been there from the beginning. There's not a lot that truly sets the PlayBook apart from the rest of the tablet crowd.
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

Pros: Great design and form-factor, U.I. is polished and easy-to use, fast performance, excellent display that is complimented by a set of powerful built-in speakers, Android app compatibility is coming.

Excerpt: Officially announced in September of last year, the long-awaited BlackBerry PlayBook was released on April 19th 2011, with a starting price of $499. It featured the all-new BlackBerry Tablet OS, the PlayBook sports a 7" display that makes this tablet more portable for everyday use than Apple's iPad...
Pros: Smaller tablet form factor makes the PlayBook more portable for everyday use, Well-built hardware with solid specs, great display, QNX-based BlackBerry Tablet OS solves all of the historical complaints of the BlackBerry Phone OS - feels like a modern OS and a solid base platform for RIM to build ...
Cons: Smaller form factor means a 7" display which makes some activites less enjoyable than they could be on a bigger display (ie. web browsing), Tiny flush-mounted power button is annoying to use, BlackBerry Tablet OS is still young and has many gaps that need to be filled in which currently takeaway ...
Conclusion: One mistake I believe a lot of members of the press make is assuming that today's two-horse race is representative of the future of this industry. While Apple and Google are clearly out to a substantial lead, there are still more revolutions that will take place between now and when the mobile...
