  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry PlayBook is a neat, compact and capable tablet. We like it, but sadly that isn't enough, as the lack of apps severely lets it down. Without apps, you'll often find yourself wondering what to do with this tablet – a problem you'd never have with the iPad 2. That said, it's still a good option if web browsing or flicking through your photographs sit at the top of your requirements.
  • Pros: One of the things we love about the BlackBerry PlayBook is the fact that it's among the smaller tablets, with the 7-inch screen making it portable enough to take wherever you go. The compact screen also leads to a light weight, with the 425g body easily light enough to hold comfortably in one hand for long periods of time. Despite having a compact screen, the BlackBerry PlayBook goes one better than a lot of its 7-inch rivals, boasting a sharp 1200 x 600-pixel resolut...
  • Cons: The biggest problem with the BlackBerry PlayBook is a lack of apps. The Apple iPad 2, RIM's biggest rival, features loads of apps specifically designed for the tablet form factor, and the PlayBook really struggles to compete without them.

BlackBerry PlayBook review

theverge.com
20 November 2011
  • 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

  • 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.

RIM BlackBerry PlayBook (2012)

PC Magazine
16 September 2011
  • Conclusion: The RIM BlackBerry PlayBook is finally a viable tablet computer, now that it includes native email support, but it still lags behind the competition in third-party apps.
  • Pros: Sharp, beautiful screen. Top-notch browser with full Flash video support. Wirelessly transfers files to and from computers on same network.
  • Cons: Far fewer third-party apps than the iPad, and the ones that exist aren't nearly as compelling. Doesn't sync with BES or support BlackBerry Messenger.

RIM BlackBerry Playbook Review

  • Conclusion: The tablet market is booming, with new product introductions occurring on a regular basis. Although there are still more tablets announced than are actually shipping right now, quite a few new models will hit the market soon. For now, the PlayBook is among the smaller crowd of tablets that is actually shipping. Overall, multitasking on the PlayBook was great, and we appreciated the responsiveness of both the tablet and the OS.
  • Pros: 1 GHz dual-core processor, BlackBerry Tablet OS with multitasking capabilities, Upcoming support for Java and Android apps, Full WebKit browser
  • Cons: No microSD slot, Missing dedicated PIM apps, Small Power button

  • Conclusion: Consumer electronics devices rarely leave me feeling this conflicted. I love the PlayBook experience with its fast and mature user interface that's more polished than Android (and I'm an Android user) and far stronger at multitasking than iOS. The hardware is gorgeous and the 7" tablet is portable enough that I do take it with me, unlike the Motorola Xoom and iPad 2. The web browsing experience is second to none and Flash 10.1 playback is impressive.
  • Pros: Superb hardware, elegant and fast UI, multitasks like a champ., Pro: Superb hardware, top notch display, delightful user interface, solid multitasking, good battery life, full 1080p HDMI out.
  • Cons: Rushed to market before PIM apps and email client reader. 3rd party apps are thin in this brand new platform., Con: Missing basic PIM apps and email client at launch. BlackBerry Bridge not available for AT&T BlackBerry smartphones (AT&T's fault), quality apps in AppWorld MIA at launch.
