Summary: I'm a medical professional, have an iPad1 and iPad2, and use Windows and Mac extensively. 24 hours ago, I decided to purchase the Blackberry Playbook. In 24 hours, I've discovered the Playbook with the current OS2.0 is a hidden gem in this crowded field of tablets, and in this Apple-frenzied...
Summary: So I don't ever write reviews for products, this is actually my first review. However, I think that after all I've been through with this product, I had to say something. I received my Playbook in January and I really did love it.
Summary: I have been using my PlayBook for about four months and have been very satisfied with the performance. There are apps that are useful and make it easier to use this tablet in a professional setting.
Glad I waited a while to get a tablet & stumbled on the Playbook.

Summary: What can I say. I am so glad I waited on the ipad 2. As a result I was introduced to the playbook by a friend and I fell in love with its size. After a bit of research I concluded it was just perfect for my needs.
Summary: OK, Research in Motion (Blackberry) is going under, the Playbook is no longer being ordered from the factory, and it isn't as "modern" or "up to date" as, lets say, the iPad, or Samsung's Galaxy series....but so what?
Summary: 3 weeks in and I'm ready to put a review out. I bought the playbook because I really wanted an introductory tablet (price wise). I own the Bold 9930 and from what I could tell, the playbook was going to extremely complimentary. Pros: * The small and compact design is great as a travel companion.
Summary: I've had this for months and it's difficult to imagine going back to my iPad 2. I haven't picked up my iPad since I bought this thing, no exaggeration. After playing with every tablet out there I could get my mitts on, I decided on the Playbook, and it was the best decision. I couldn't be happier.
Summary: I've never owned a smartphone and pretty much stick to just the basics on my desktop PC. So I was a bit wary about going with a Playbook instead of the tried-and-true iPad for my first ever tablet. Well, I'm happy to report that the Blackberry Playbook is a winner.
Summary: I totally understand that there are a lack of apps for this machine. This will change with a new OS update that will incorporate thousands of Android apps, coupled with the recent fire sale of Playbooks. Lets start off where this tablet dominates. Multimedia.
The alternative to Android and iPad... Don't be afraid.

Summary: I scoped tablets for about a year before I decided to purchase one. I looked at a lot of 10" tablets and decided they were just too big. As I'm not part of the Maccult, my choices were basically Android and Blackberry - at the time I purchased my PB, It was deeply discounted to rival the Androids.
