Pros: This tablet has an excellent browser with full flash support. The cameras are great and the bridge feature allows for internet access without any additional costs. The screen resolution combined with flash support online videos a real treat. Since it is 7" I take it with me everywhere and I use i...
Cons: The pdf reader needs better features and they need some additional apps, although this should be addressed with the upcoming 2.0 update and Android app support.
Summary: HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, PIECE OF JUNK!!! OS update screws up tablet. Update process extremely cryptic and unfriendly. Online documentation sucks, and doesn't correspond to what we see on the device or Desktop Manager.
Pros: sharp resolution
Cons: 1) horrible, almost non-existent tech support 2) absolutely the UNFRIENDLIEST update process 3) OS patch 18.104.22.16867 screws up tablet completely 4) No way to roll back updates if there is a problem 5) bunch of ignoramuses sitting in tech support
Summary: If you actually try each tablet out, and you're not expecting just games, I think you'll love the Blackberry Playbook.
Pros: The size, the quality, the screen. Blackberry really hit the nail on head with this tablet. If you're looking for little bird games and silly apps, this doesn't have them (yet, until 2012 when they release their free update with the 2.0 version that ports android apps) however the speed, and the ...
Cons: I dislike the small power button on the top. I rarely use it however because I just put mine in stand by mode. I will be really happy when 2.0 comes out because it does not currently support my POP3 emails without bridging to a blackberry.
Summary: could not stand dealing with the bunch of ignoramuses passing off as "tech support"- they don't even know their own product. During initial set-up when I couldn't connect to my WiFi and called them, they kept insisting that the SSID had to be broadcast (mine is hidden).
Pros: sharp resolution
Cons: 1) horrible, almost non-existent tech support 2) unstable OS 3) absolutely user-UNFRIENDLY Desktop Manager software 4) Online documentation does not correspond with what is actually seen on the device or in the Desktop Manager with regard to options 5) Inability to roll back OS update in case of ...
Summary: The ONLY reason to put up with this device is if you (like me) have a blackberry through work and your corporate email server is so locked down that you can't get to your email from an Android or Apple device. I have used both Android and Apple phones and either is so far advanced over this.
Pros: It is the only way I can get my corporate email, calendar, tasks and notes onto a tablet.
Cons: Prepare to stare at blank screens and the "updating" circle icon. This device's software is so bad that if you do a search in the AppWorld and it doesn't find anything, it just shows a blank screen. It connects to my home wireless network and then can't connect to it 5 minutes later. The browser ...
Summary: At $500 the BlackBerry PlayBook would be a solid tablet, but at only $199 it is a STEAL. Not only is it super functional and fun to use, it's sleek and very well built. Another nice touch is that RIM actually includes a pretty nice neoprene sleeve in the box.
Pros: Screen- The quality of the display is superb and using it is just a blast. OS- Even though it's still in it's infancy and needs way more apps, the QNX operating system is gorgeous and very intuitive. I appreciate the fact that unlike the iPad and many Android tablets, this OS is made for a tablet...
Cons: The OS- I listed this as a pro, but it's a con as well. The only major cons with it for me are the lack of email/calendar and a VERY anemic app selection in App World.
