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

  • Conclusion: The improvements to the BlackBerry tablet OS seem to have been a long time coming but they're welcome nonetheless. It's a powerful device for both work and play, and it's finally starting to measure up to its rivals. But the lack of unique BlackBerry features, such as BBM, can't go unnoticed.
  • Pros: Native email client, sharp 7-inch screen, pocketable size, gesture controls, 5-megapixel camera and decent 3-megapixel front-facing camera, HDMI port, HD video recording
  • Cons: Still not many apps, no BBM, limited Android app support,

18 November 2011

5 August 2011
  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry PlayBook is a decent entry into the market, with its svelte form factor, minimalist good looks and sturdy performance. But the lack of apps could tell against it, as could the lack of a dedicated email/calendar/contacts client.

SMARTHOUSE
15 June 2011
  • Summary: It's been a while since our first look of Research In Motion's contender in the newly-sprouting tablet market, and since then we've get acquainted with the quaint device and feel out the kinks. In our hands we've held the Wi-Fi-only 16GB model.
