Summary: The playbook is great for travelling, solid and with great audiovisual capabilities - 2mp front-facing camera, 5mp rear-facing camera, HD video recording and HDMI output, front-facing speakers that put other tablets to shame...... Take your pick. I find the browser ok and the virtual keyboard is responsive - this review is written on my PB, so you can make your own minds up.
Summary: Brilliant, I've had this playbook for just over a week now and I haven't put it down yet, I do have only one issue, being used to an android phone I do find the playbook a little restricted but apart from that it's great.
Summary: Playbook purchased for my oldest son who is 12.It is a great size for when he goes to friends and very easy to use.When I get the oppitunity I prefere to use it myself as to the laptop.Im considering purchasing one for my youngest son.
A decent tablet at a decent price. Does a good enough job.

Excerpt: As a Christmas present to my two daughters, aged 13 and 16, my wife and I decided to purchase a tablet for them however we couldn't agree on which was best; In the red corner... was my wife, wanting to buy a Kindle Fire as it was £30 cheaper than than the Blackberry Playbook, and because she felt that the books on the Kindle would be better as Amazon had prior to this made e-readers. And in the blue corner...
Summary: Very happy with the product. Would recommend others to buy. It is very handy to operate and my little daughter love it very much. She plays music and video and surf the Internet. Whenever I want I find it very easy to use. Thanks a lot for such a beautiful invention.
Summary: When we realised how much these tablets offered for the money, we ended up buying four of them! For the last six-months they've been used around the house for everything from games to business and my wife has even run her presentation projector off one. The quality you are getting for the money is ridiculous. They are solid, fast, easy to use and the screen is great.
Excerpt: I bought the blackberry playbook last year as it was a good looking budget tablet, but was disappointed by the range of apps it had to offer. When trying to download skype I found out skype was unsupported by blackberry and I was required to use web based version of skype called IMO. I then done a little bit of googleing and I found out that developers are no longer making apps for the playbook, and most of the apps that the app store do offer are at an additional cost.
