Pros: Multitasking, Flash Support, Beautiful screen, high quality build, Best web browsing experience of any tablet, Free Preinstalled Apps like Need for Speed, Docs to Go, Kobo, Tetris, Facebook, etc.
Cons: Fewer Apps than Android and iOS, but more and more Apps are added every day and now Big developers are bringing apps too: Wikipedia, Gameloft, Kayak, Rovio (Angry Birds), EA, Facebook, Splashtop, and much more.
Summary: It is OK tablet. Somehow, I would like the android more after I play with playbook for a while. Mostly is limitation of available app. Then few little faults: 1. the pdf reader, cannot open bigger size file (more than 150MB). And some pdf books I have are more then 50MB. It will open, but with huge leg. A none enjoyable of reading pdf on this thing. 2. explores will automatic closed by themselves if I open few more, or watch videos. 3.
Summary: i guess i shouldn't have done more research, i didn't know that most tablets don't support the google market. most of my apps came from the google market and this tablet not supporting the google market was a big problem for me. most of the apps that are free at the google market would cost you around $5 at the blackberry market and the selection is limited. nice tablet but could become expensive if you plan to buy apps from blackberry market. i am out, peace.
Summary: Display is excellent, and camera is decent: that's a pity Skype has not been ported on PlayBook. Text in mail can be formatted (bold, color, highlight...) and predictive words are sometimes useful. Browser is quite good. It comes with Tetris preinstalled and you can download Asphalt 6 and Modern Combat for free. Battery life is a little less than iPad (with fair use you need to recharge almost every day...). Good deal for this price.
"Great workhorse tablet with the advantages of bridging"
17 April 2012
Pros: This is a solid machine with so much functionality. The Docs to Go are a must for anyone who needs a tablet that will do work. The mini HDMI slot allows me to do presentations for my students while bridging my Bold to use as a remote. It's my laptop.
Cons: As for most, the buttons are an issue. I'd like to see language switching integrated as well as a few more options in Docs to Go, like adding rows & columns for spreadsheets. However, this stuff is minor.
