Summary: I have an apple Ipad which is a great unit, but I had a hard time playing videos on specific websites due to the agreement issue between apple and adobe. I have a blackberry smartphone and syncing ability between the two is great. I can also play flash files without any problem on my playbook. The only downer on the unit is the power button. its too small.
Summary: I purchased this when the prices was temporarily slashed from $599 to $299. And at $299, this was easily better value and a huge bargain over the very expensive iPad2 32GB WiFi. The web browser is excellent, and the Adobe Flash plug-in is flawless. Being able to sync it to your Blackberry Smartphone is outstanding. My main qualm against the Blackberry Playbook is that the current selection of apps (both free and paid) are not great.
Summary: I have not written a review before, but I felt compelled to add one given the mixed reviews on the Blackberry Playbook. I love the 7" size, and this tablet is fast. The graphics and sound are amazing! There are apps already available for reading books (kobo), and Android compatibility is supposed to come in February 2012 with the updated OS. You CAN read email NOW through GMAIL, YAHOO, anything really, as the tablet has a complete internet browser capability installed.
Summary: I have only had the item for about 2 weeks, but I love it. I have been able to make my life easier at work and it is easy to carry. Walmart delivered before expectationand the fact that I got it for $300 off makes it even better.
Summary: I LOVE this item. It does exactly what I need it to do and at 299.00 the price was right. I read alot of books and needed a e-reader or tablet that could read PDFs. This one does this and more. Downloaded free apps. I do wish that I could get netflix on it but that is supposed to be coming soon. I Could not buy this item now for the 299.00. It is now 599.00. Easy to use. 1 thing to note when you purchase-----YOU MUST HAVE WIFI in order to set it up!
Summary: I purchased the 32GB BB PB bundle that is offered by Walmart, but I purchased at the special price that was offered by BB thru 12/3/11. I had read a number of negative reviews of this tablet but had played around with a demo model and was impressed by it. When BB dropped the prices for a limited time, I decided to make the purchase.
Summary: I am pleasantly surprised with the Blackberry Playbook 32mb tablet. Since I use a Blackberry 9900 cell phone, I am able to "Bridge" to it and obtain all the functionality available in it's desogn. As a sales person this has become a very useful tool. It is a very useful device for sales demo videos as well as PowerPoint presentations. I am very pleased with the purchase.
