3.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Jul 19, 2011

The RIM BlackBerry PlayBook is the first-ever enterprise-ready, 7” tablet released by Research in Motion (R.I.M.), and it’s designed to compete directly with the Apple iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab. It differentiates itself first by using an entirely different and proprietary operating system known as the BlackBerry Tablet OS, which supports OpenGL, POSIX, HTML5, and Flash 10.1 (which is blocked on the iPad/iPhone). Another notable functionality is the parallel connectivity between devices, as a BlackBerry Torch (for instance) can be tethered by Bluetooth, after which users can work seamlessly from one unit to the other. One big difference compared to the iPad is that the Playbook has a front-facing 3MP cam and rear-facing 5MP cam that support high-definition video capture and video conferencing. Additional Information Like the iPad, the Playbook uses an LCD screen, which means it’s better suited for using on bright, sunny days. Mind you the Playbook’s screen is ... PROS: (1) Flash 10.1 support (2) HDMI output (3) dual cameras (3MP front, 5MP back) (4) 1GHz dual core processor (5) less than a pound (under 2/3rds the weight of an iPad) ... CONS: (1) proprietary walled garden application ecosystem (2) Requires tethering with Blackberry for email and calendar functionality (3) late to the show - wasnt out until April 2011 (4) poorer battery life than the competition (~7 hours of normal use) (5) " form factor has its drawbacks - on-screen keyboard takes up most of the display

4 Star Review   By member joecracker007 - Dec 21, 2011   

Strengths: A business-savvy powerhouse!

Weakness: Screen orientation is picky deending on app. Lack of updates.

I have told everyone I see about this thing since I got it for 199 thanks to Tech Bargains!It can bridge to multiple Blackberries, and share data, or keep it private. It edits and creates word files, excel files, and powerpoint. It has the best Flash support of any device I've owned, at least out-of-the-box.At 199, think of it as a 7" dynamo with 1080p output for whatever you want to share/watch in full-size, and a netbook with balls at the very worst.At its best, it has replaced my heavy, sluggish laptop, and is a lightweight machine with 16 gigs of space and great features.-joey crack
