"Fast and good operating system but needs apps NOW!"
25 November 2011
Pros: The operating system is smooth and easy to use. The system is fast, loads pages quickly and runs multiple apps. Screen has great color and image. Screen size, I think that the screen size is good.
Cons: Extremely weak applications. I bought this to access the internet via my 42" tv w/ HDMI output. Yes has Flash but some websites don't load well. NO Netflix, NO Hulu, NO Amazon Videos Newpaper apps--NY Times, no WSJ-Huh? Book app only Kobo
"No braodband device compatibility & email kills value"
25 November 2011
Pros: Great browser flash performance, WebPAGE-like interface, better than average tablet camera,.excellent screen and Blackberry Bridge
Cons: No native email and NO compatibilityw with mobile broadband cards like Novatel card AND all others makes this tablet only a SHADOw of a tablet especially since email and connectivity and email CRIPPLED next to all other tablets.
Pros: Very fast processor speed Mulitasks extremely well and fluidly Intuitive user interface Well thought out download tools
Cons: On'y works all the time bridged to my Blackberry, or in a wi-fi hot spot, not a big deal as I carry my Blackberry for work all the time Not a huge selection of apps, but again, I have what I need to read books, listen to music and read my mail.
Pros: Clean and easy set-up Stereo sound is way better than my iPad Wonderful media tablet Great UI; got hooked after 10 minutes on touch sensitive borders Great browser with Flash Excellent wide-screen video Docs To Go apps FREE! BB Bridge gets you 3G
Cons: First sync of pictures, music takes a long time with (initially) 100% CPU on my quad i7 iMac Blackberry accessory case is not great -- buy aa Logix one that works as a stand No 3G option for people without a Blackberry
"Graphics are stunning! Very easy to use. I love it!"
15 November 2011
Pros: Very easy to use. Buttons on this tablet are very minimal. The size of this tablet is what makes it so great. It fit's right in my purse. Bigger than an iTouch and smaller than those bulky iPads. Love it!
Cons: The tablet is a bit pricy. So if you could find one for a cheaper price...go for it. Either way, it's worth it.
"a simply great product, well designed, well built"
6 November 2011
Pros: - beautiful tablet, not a flashy object - built quality is outstanding , not a shiny plastic or "pseudo" aluminium - teethering and no need of a 2nd 3g plan ( use a BB smartphone) .. it makes life much easier and convenient -true multi-tasking
Cons: - nothing so far, .. -maybe the captive email solution, but.. nothing "Captive" compared to big brother Apple
Excerpt: I love my BlackBerry Playbook. It's small enough to carry anywhere, easy to use, and inexpensive. You can purchase a lot of accessories, that make using the playbook more fun & versatile. Everyone uses it & loves it; from 4 year old nephew to my 61 year old mother. The picture quality is great, all of the controls are easy to access, and it's just all around fun to use.
