Pros: Powerful OS, real multi-tasking, great UI, fantastic screen and HD video, great browser, the web actually works (flash. HTML), access to MSFT office and Adobe, free data service by tethering to blackberry (why pay $25 a month to ATT?)
Cons: Only 4000 apps so far (more to come), if you don't have a bbery, you won't have native email (they saying it's coming "very, very soon"), 7" screen (althouhgh makes it ligher and portable)
Pros: QNX, POSIX compliant OS. Means android apps will run as if native, Instantaneous response time, crash-proof. Folks this OS is rock solid, it's where everyone else including M$ should have been. I can;t believe M$ never purchased QNX years ago.
Cons: On Switch, Built inflaw, so that release 2 will show an improvement. Cause the current software platform is waiting for everyone else to wake up and catch up. QNX is to OSs like Ipad was to the market. A well executed game changer.
Pros: Features a high resolution screen, portable design and versatile QNX operating system. The playbook finally offers decent 3D gaming performance that the iPhone has had for a while now. Companies may like it's security features and integration with corpora
Cons: Lack of a true purpose. It seems as though RIM created the Playbook as a knee-jerk reaction to competition rather than in response to actual demand. There is a severe lack of application support making this expensive device of limit use to most people. Th
Pros: Absolutely love this device. I agree the 7" display makes web browsing a bit difficult, but I did find myself taking it more places than I did my original iPad. (i.e. I'd carry it with me to the kitchen or bedroom or bathroom.) It's just ultra portable
Cons: The web browser is buggy still. RIM pushed an update to the device last night over WiFi and most of the problems seem to have been resolved though.
Pros: Flash, although many Flash sites don't work/crash UI is fluid
Cons: Too small - Apple clearly cornered the market on full sized tablet screens Far too few apps. Single device platform. Unlike the iPod->iPhone->iPad, the PlayBook is a single device. Apps that you buy on a BlackBerry won't run on it or vice versa.
"Tablet to beat in 2011. A tablet that replaces a PC."
15 April 2011
Pros: First true multi tasking tablet. Silky smooth graphics. Desktop browsing capability. Over the air software updates (no PC dependency). Free built in Word/Excel/PowerPoint editors. The powerful QNX-neutrino OS running on a dual core processor makes thi
Cons: We will need to wait for a software update in the summer to be able to run Android and BB Phone apps as well as native email client. At least this is done over the air but some patience will be needed.
