Summary: 5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome tablet A bit about me first - I am a techno-nerd. I LOVE gadgets. Large, small, you name it. After eyeballing many tablets, including the iPad, Xoom, Samsung and others I chose the 64GB Blackberry Playbook. Why? For one, because it is the right size.
Summary: Bought my 64GB a few days before the OS2 update for $299 from Newegg. That is a fair price for this device. When saw the price was back to $699 had to write review. If you want a device that is worth $699 try the Motorola XYBoard 8.2. That is actually worth the money.
Pros: True multitasking environment. Movie player is great.
Cons: OS is a work in progress. Good for what it does, but app store still severely lacking. No Netflix, Hulu, Kindle, Nook company supported apps. Android player is weak on memory mgmt so apps hang or do not load. No printer support. Stability and future of RIM.
Summary: Blackberry should consider improving on this tablet and it can make a serious run at the Ipad 3.
Pros: The HD video on this tablet is simply amazing, it has very nice feel and fits in your hands they way a tablet should. Apps run smoothly with out any jerkiness or hangups. Plays flash run websites with ease.
Cons: Needs more apps! This tablet has the pottential of going head to head with the Ipad 3, if only there were more apps.
Great tablet especially when you have a blackberry with BES

Summary: BB Playbook is a must have for those who use BB phone connecting to work's outlook. I have a blackberry w bes connecting to my company's outlook (email, contacts, task, calendar). I love the BB bridge which via bluetooth, allows the Playbook to access my bb's email, contacts, task, calendar, as if I...
Summary: Works pretty well, nice features, great screen, etc. But if you let the battery run down, good luck getting it to ever charge up again! From surfing around the web for a solution, looks like others have had this problem too.
Summary: Good powerful multi-tasking, where you can run a video in one window and play a game in another with both apps running concurrently, is a first of its kind for a mainstream tab. App (we need a lot more)
Summary: Nice overall size, and just a good balance between a small handheld device, and a laptop. Swiping from the outer screen perimeter is a smart and handy ability. Adobe Flash compatible which is nice, for those select sites that contain Flash content.
Summary: Purchased this to watch movies on at work since I run equipment for like 5 minutes then sit in place for like 30, perfect for what I needed. Got my wife the 16 gig since she didn't need all the storage for movies, she loves it, we both use them all the time.
Pros: 64 GB, flawless video playback, high resolution, just the right size, great for video games, good cameras, solid wifi, easy to use interface, good runtime on battery charge, new software update has some nice features, video chat between playbooks works nicely.
Cons: haven't seen android apps yet, I've heard it's gonna be limited but we'll wait to see. MicroSD slot would have been nice, even with the 64 gig, gps seems maybe a bit sluggish, magnetometer for compass doesn't seem like it's working, but that may be the software.
Summary: The blackberry playbook is for the person that has business in mind and wants a rock-solid reliable operating system. Small size makes it ultra practical and the new upgrade to the operating system is great.
Summary: Don't waste your money. If I could return it I would. I love the thing when it's working but that's not for long. The software is very buggy even after the update especially the browser. Freezes up a lot and have to reboot daily.
Pros: Size is perfect, fits in your pocket, has full access to the web true multitasking, sound is adequate the display is very good.
