Summary: Arrived day before ETA. Well packed. A1 condition. The interphase seems a lot more intuitive than iOS. There are some useful support video tutorials at [...] Does all the basics well. Whilst it may not have so many apps so what. Most apps are time wasters. Only one I miss is Skype.
An excellent tablet for the price but with significant Micro USB port flaw

Summary: THe tablet itself is very stylish, a littler heavier than than current competitors but with an outstandingly clear and detailed display and great speakers. Because it uses a Blackberry OS rather than a normal android OS you are very restricted in as much that the only easy source of apps is the fairly limited Blackberry store and even then a number of these are not compatible with the Playbook (but this is made clear on the store or when trying to download - it won't let...
Summary: Hard to believe that these were up to 500 quid when they first came out. The build quality is good, screen is bright, but that's where the positives end. The operating system is clunky and slow. Full of bugs. Wifi drops out a lot. The app selection is utterly awful. To be honest I wouldn't even pay 75 quid.
Summary: ok the playbook delivery from the seller was fantastic within 2 days very well packaged on opening and viewing i was really surprised how well built this is i charged and did the update cool works great the only problem was that for some reason these do have a problem connecting through the USB specially with windows 7 but that did not bother me as i dont like bb software on my pc and i only wanted it for web email and so HOWEVER if you do want it for music and films the...
Summary: For the money, a Blackberry gives you a well made tablet with up to 64 GB of memory, true multitasking and a great screen. However, the app store is shockingly limited and side loading Android apps, leaves them very buggy. There is no native Skype app, and side loading an Android version didn't work for me. Sharing files over a cable with a PC is very hit and miss, and so the large capacity looses its usefulness.
Summary: I already have an iPad which is the best Tablet out there but it's only 16gb which is restrictive when storing videos and music. There are many tablets out there but reading the reviews I was put off by the negative comments. When I saw the PlayBook at this price with 64gb of storage I couldn't quite believe my eyes. Most of the comments were very positive and with Blackberry name behind it, I had to have one.
