Summary: At $499, the BB playbook is a total rip off! But at $199, you should definitely buy it. Why? PROS: 1) The screen is superb. Good resolution with nice bright colors 2) The camera is good as well, both front and back 3) It is gesture-based and quite cool for me who is used to android and ios only 4) It looks great, how it minimizes its apps. Makes it easy to transition between apps. 5) The body has a nice solid-feel.
Summary: It maybe a little too Canadian for me. Wish it had more things from the US in it's library. Great work pad, that is very sharpe and extremely verital.Would recommend it for someone who doesn't have the bid bucks required for the i-pad.
Summary: THIS IS AN AWESOME TABLET!! I AM AN ANDRIOD PERSON IVE BEEN USING ANDROID SINCE IT CAME OUT, BUT I LIKE DEALS. SO I BOUGHT THE TABLET FOR THE BARGAIN PRICE AND PUT DOWN MY HP TOUCHPAD WITH ICS THAT DIDNT WORK VERY WELL (BUGGY)..WELL THIS PLAYBOOK IS BREATH OF FRESH AIR IT WORKS FLAWLESSLY..YOU DO NEED TO ASK YOURSELF THOUGH- "WHAT DO I NEED A TABLET FOR?". I JUST NEED IT TO BROWSE THE WEB ON A BIGGER SCREEN WHILE ON THE GO AND PLAY MUSIC AND VIDEOS IT DOES THAT WELL..
Summary: I have an ipad so purchasing this was initially a questionable decision but I find myself using the playbook much more! Granted it is not quite as polished as ipad but it is much more useful carrying around and using in conjunction with my BlackBerry phone. It is very nice!
Summary: It's okay for web browsing but if you want it for the apps they are not that great. They are more expensive than amazon/android apps and most of the "free" apps are just free trials or very limited ( it tells you if you want the full game you must purchase it). It says you can get android apps, but they just put SOME android apps on the blackberry app world and they are more expensive than what they are on amazon.
Summary: I JUST GOT THIS PACKAGE YESTERDAY AND I AM ALREADY IN LOVE WITH IT.THE BLACKBERRY PLAYBOOK CAME TWO DAYS EARLIER THAN EXPECTED. I MUST SAY THE SCREEN AND THE APPS ON HERE ARE QUITE AMAZING. I LOVE THE FACT THAT IT HAS A HDMI CONNECTION SO I CAN LOOK AT MOVIES AND MY TABLET TV APP ON MY TV. THE BATTERY IS AMAZING.I HAD IT UNPLUGGED THE FIRST 6 HRS OFF THE CHARGER WHILE I DOWNLOADED APPS AND LOOKED AT A MOVIE..AND IT WAS STILL OVER HALF CHARGED!!!!
Summary: Well I really wasnt sure about which tablet I should buy so I take a look on several videos about its funcionalities and advantages.Suddenly the palybook appears on my list and I decide to take a chance. I have been using this gadget for about 4 days i cant stop using it, the documents open clearly, the navigator is really fast the only thing I dont like is that you can not organize your documents in folders when you download from your pc.
Summary: I knew the mini usb port seemed weak whem I received the Playbook in Febuary....sure enough went to plug it in for a charge...no go.............either the port or cable is damaged. BTW I am 60 plus and babied the thing........too bad as I have to drive over an hour just to get it to the geek squad and they say weeks for a repair.......crap.
