Summary: Compare the build quality and specs of this 7" tablet to any other tablet on the market and it compares quite favorably in my opinion.
Pros: Very nice UI, both cameras record in 1080P, cameras are quite good, side speakers are surprisingly good, 7" size is nice for efficient transporting while on-the-go. Can multi-task better than almost every tablet out there.
Cons: The over-exaggerated deficiencies of the app store ... will likely be fixed with the OS update this February - opening up some android market place apps. However, I will deduct half-a-star from my rating because of this 'app world' shortcoming.
Pros: The UI is amazing. Powerful Dual-Core 1GHz CPU and a whopping 1GB of DRAM. The multi-tasking on this thing is amazing. More than enough apps and games to keep you going., Full native Flash support, this is where the Playbook kills the iPad(s).
Cons: Woudl have been nice to have more choice for apps and games. But still there is more than enough to choose from.
Summary: "whist it is built very well, the fact that the software is a nightmare to use, it keeps on loosing its wi-fi signal and has to rebooted and the limited and very expensive apps this is one piece of hardware that is a overall failure for its users.
Summary: "This review is now somewhat out of date and the playbook has received a major update to its OS including native email, calendar, contacts etc..... I love my playbook and feel really sorry that RIM didn’t do a better job of selling the idea behind it at its original launch. All the things that the press have criticised it for were all there for perfectly good reasons. For example, many reviews criticise that the power button is difficult to press.
Excerpt: The Tab is simply good and once you hold it in your hand , you get the feel of having Blackberry Tab, which is truly good..! I am a blackberry fan and therefore would request them to add more apps and games option for free. Most of the apps and games are available on paid basis. 64 GB internal space is simply superb..!A bit difficult to add the device with other devices via bluetooth and it makes transfer of media difficult.
Pros: Battery Life, Operating System, Screen, Web Browsing, WiFi
