Summary: I was looking for a new Playbook, never used. After receiving this box, which was really scratched and kind of messy, I noticed this is not a brand new unit. The plastic covering the screen was all messed up, I am still looking for the earphones, just in case they are magical and will appear suddenly. I am really dissapointed, even though the unit is in mint condition.
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.
Pros: Nice portable size, fast OS, high quality cameras, and great battery life. It also has the best mobile browsing experience of any tablet or smartphone. I also like the BB Bridge functionality.
Cons: Got apps? No Foursquare, Google Mobile Apps, Kindle, LinkedIn, Netflix, Nook, Twitter, VEVO, etc. Also missing the standard IM/ video chat clients, AIM, MSN, Skype, Yahoo!, etc. Needs an RDP client too. Lastly, the keyboard needs improvement.
