Summary: I bought an acer tablet and it broke 2 times so i returned it and purchased the blackberry and was so surprised that this tablet which is a $120 cheaper (I paid $130) than the acer a-100 and is much much faster. It is not an andoid but you can still sideload a lot of android apps to it. I would just google or youtube the instructions to do so. You can also hook it up to your hd tv with an mini hdmi cord which is a great plus.
Summary: I needed to go to Vegas. Don't want or need A $$$ PLAN and a Smart Phone for internet and emailing. Mostly needed internet. Can't handle internet access on a stupid smart phone. I have a cheapo phone FOR CALLS. So I get the Playbook and Love it. Then a MIFI and I was connected on the go where there wasn't any wifi. I like the "docs on the go" from my desktop, Easily transferred docs I needed to show all from my desktop. Even plays Powerpoint and more.
Summary: B005MFX8Z2 I like the product . I received exactly as described. There was 2 day shipping paid for by Chubbiestech. When I checked the tracking information I was very impressed to see that Chubbiestech paid $50 for insurance to cover the product during postal delivery. Everything worked right out of the box. I am using a net10 simcard for the 4g service. The tablet is unlocked. Great product Chubbiestech!
great tablet...but needs to incorporate popular apps

Summary: This is a wonderful tablet! I really like the bridge! There is one downside, however. The Kindle app is not supported on this device nor many other useful and popular apps. I contacted Blackberry customer service and was coldly advised that I should use other ebook apps and not hold out hope for the Kindle app. Considering I have thousands of dollars worth of periodicals and books on Kindle, including my School Books, I am disenchanted and disappointed with that answer.
Summary: This is a good tablet. Lots of disk space (32GB model) with decent speed running apps. The boot up time is slower then I would like so I tend to leave it powered on. Battery life is good without the wifi enabled. Cons are the heat generated by the device. Its not bad but it is noticeable. If you use a blackberry this is useful to read e-mails using the BB bridge.
Summary: Ordered the Playbook online and received it two weeks ago. I have to say that I am very impressed with the functionality and smooth operation of this tablet. The display and sound is also excellent. Also able to add songs via USB and without being tied to a proprietary program. Really like the size as well. Much easier to hang on to and will fit almost anywhere. I read many reviews before purchasing this.
Summary: I got the Playbook last year. I have had no problems setting it up. The "blackberry bridge" works great. The screen and display are unbelievable. The operating system is intuitive. ver 2.0 The glass keyboard (I'm typing this on the glass) is the best I've ever used. RIM has done a great job.
