Lovely piece of kit, but far too many issues with apps.

Summary: Pros - well built and sturdy, decent built in browser. good audio for a small tablet, plenty of built in storage, very acceptable screen resolution, wifi connects easily, OK cameras, fair price. Cons - very few decent apps and most of those are way too expensive, android apps have to be sideloaded - fiddly and time consuming, RIM constantly promising upgrade to BB10 at some point in the future but it never seems to happen and now never will(see next paragraph).
Summary: as older people not up to new technology, we find this easy to use, and love it we take it everywhere, fits nicely in wife's handbag. takes lovely photos, have video called a friend with same blackberry playbook, logs on to Wi-Fi and we are Facebook users. brill for our e mails while we are abroad.
Summary: I bought the PlayBook full price, while I was listening to how bad this tablet was by people doing podcasts, I kept on using this tablet to do everything a computer could do, reading my emails, looking at cute videos on YouTube or storing my entire library of music, photos and books, or spending hours surfing the Web, and even being able to listen to these podcasts all from my PlayBook.
Summary: Lets start by addressing the elephant in the room.... this device is not an ipad mini or nexus 7. Were the pricing comparable I would probably rate both of those devices as superior to this. However I bought my 64GB playbook refurbished with 12 months warranty for £65 plus postage. Which I would say, pound for pound, actually puts it way ahead of the aforementioned devices.
