Summary: I've had my Playbook now for a couple weeks, and find it to be almost (but not quite) perfect for my use. It's very fast, perfectly tailored for multitasking, and the OS/User interface is designed explicitly for the tablet hardware (not a cell phone or a laptop).
Summary: I picked up the Playbook last week and have been using it all week, and here are my thoughts for those who may need some information about it. And as the title states, I am NOT a person who has a career that a tablet would be useful for; I'm not taking business trips, not always on-the-go, etc.
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.
Excellent QNX tablet - getting better by February with 2.0 OS Update!

Summary: The first attempt from RIM/Blackberry into the Tablet market has been Sour 'n Sweet. Sour because of the reviews: Much of the media have pounded the Playbook for being a "Half baked product", which I agree considering the original OS (1.02) release.
Summary: After reading how these Playbooks will be upgradeable to the Blackberry 10, I did a little research and found MANY favorable reviews for them. Since the price is definitely right, I decided to order one and... I am SO glad I did! This thing is nothing short of fantastic!
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: 06/06/2012 I've had my playbook for less than 24hours now; yet I absolutely love it! It does everything I need to do; makes my life a lot easier; especially when it comes to responding to numerous emails throughout the course of the day.
Summary: First of all I have only had this tablet a few days so I do not know how it will perform in the long term. However with the few knowledge I have about it so far I must say that in my opinion it is among the best tablets out there.
Summary: I am 30 yr old and also have been a blackberry smartphone user since 2007. I was so glad when the BB PB was released because I had tried other touchscreen smartphones thinking that I would join the touchscreen revolution. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with each one.
