Summary: "whist it is built very well, the fact that the software is a nightmare to use, it keeps on loosing its wi-fi signal and has to rebooted and the limited and very expensive apps this is one piece of hardware that is a overall failure for its users.
Summary: I am extremely dissatisfied with the overall performance of the PlayBook. The main issue is the terrible battery performance which I cannot believe RIM hasn't figured out by now how to solve. If you let the battery run down below a certain percent (like 3-4%) the unit is basically completely shot as it then won't have enough power to tell itself to allow the charger to recharge the battery.
Summary: The PlayBook arrived in good time and the set up was very easy once I'd figured out that it had to be left to charge for a good few hours before even trying to turn it on. The PlayBook feels very solid and well made with a decent battery life. My only criticism would be the lack of common apps available. Skype and Kindle book reader being two that I'd really like to see on here. Another nice plus would be the mini HDMI port that the PlayBook has.
Summary: If you want to buy a tablet, you must want to use lots of apps. But no useful and interesting apps were found in the Blackberry World. Even you cann't find a interesting input method. Compared with andriod and iphone smartphone system, The OS of Playbook is very very very low. Before buying this tablet, I didn't try to know its OS. But I always trust the band of blackberry, for this shopping, it is not good.
Apalling service from the supplier as the product is faulty

Summary: The tablet will not charge, although the seller Cubescent, started an initial dialogue via e mail. They have now ceased responding. they refuse to accept there is an issue and state that as I have had the tablet more than 90 days there's nothing they can do. they appear to disregard the fact that I am entitled to a 12 month guarantee. If I had brought the product from a high street store I would at least have somewhere to go and complain.
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.
