Summary: I was once a devout Blackberry user but because blackberry hadn't developed any new and exciting phones recently, I transported to the Samsung Galaxy line of phones. Though I like the Galaxy, I've missed my blackerry experience and longed for a playbook when it came out; but the price and the limited functionality kept pushing me away.
Summary: I bought the Playbook for my wife as a gift. I did not buy it on Amazon but elsewhere and I just wanted to give my comments on it. PROS: 1- Integration with my wife BlackBerry was easy, she can use her BBM, BB Calendar, BB email, documents right there on her Playbook after sync. She can use her phone data plan too on the tablet without any extra $$ cost or requiring reconfiguration.
Not a bad tablet for the money, but I would recommend an Android tablet.

Summary: The Playbook is not a bad tablet for the money, but it has limited free apps available. You can side load a few Android apps, but it is somewhat of a pain. It preforms well, the battery life is okay. It has decent resolution and the touchscreen works well.I am not at all happy with the seller ANTOnile. The unit was represented as new, but the unit I received had been obviously opened and resealed.
I am a very satisfied user of the RIM Playbook 32gb

Summary: This is not going to be a super high tech review. I am a Catholic priest and a devoted Apple fan - a very VERY devoted Apple fan. However, when I decided to move from a paper day planner that I was alway misplacing to a tablet, I was not sure of which tablet to get. Like everyone, I see the Apple IPAD everywhere and have many friend who are devoted users. However, I was not convinced that the IPAD was the right table for me.
Summary: I bought this item for my nephew (14yrs) and he says he loves it.. The price was cheaper than a computer and it was perfect for what he would be using it for. The timing of shipment was very quick. I had no issues and will possibly be buying another one in a few months.
Summary: Been using my Playbook for two weeks now and I can say I'm satisfied with this purchase. RIM's tablet packs the power of a mini-laptop in a pocket-sized form. Pros: - It has crystal-clear display - Very resistant and stoutly built - Fast, with more than enough power to run heavy applications and games. - Feature-rich with HD rear facing camera, a chatting front-faced camera, GPS, Wi-fi, HDMI and Bluetooth.
Summary: The BBPB is great for the price. Most of the installed apps are great. The only issue I have is that it takes about 2 minutes to boot up. Other than that, it is great for what I needed. Docs to go..
Summary: This is easily the best tablet on the market today. RIM had succeeded in not only perfecting the tablet experience in terms of design and reliability,but they have perfected the interface with which it is used. The touch features are much sharper and on point than any of apples devices, the blackberry tablet OS destroys IOS in terms of functionality, speed and ease of use, the tablet is built solid in terms of toughness, water tolerance, and shock unlike ipad which in...
Summary: Wanted to get my mom something a little smaller and easier to handle for her to play her games online. It works great, has some awesome features, just what the doctor ordered! Arrived very fast. Great product.
