Incredible tablet - best tablet out there, best browser, best hardware.,
This review is from: BlackBerry PlayBook - Tablet - 64 GB - 7" TFT ( 1024 x 600 ) - rear camera + front camera - Wi-Fi, Bluetooth (Personal Computers)
Before I begin, let me disclose that I own a 64GB iPad2, BlackBerry Bold, iPhone 4 32GB quite an ecosystem of devices. My wife has a Samsung Galaxy as well. Now I like my iPad2, but the PlayBook is just a joy to use. I love the way it feels like a real multitasking tablet, something the ipad doesnt do properly, and the Android OS doesn't do at all. I use the bridge function to my blackberry bold, and it really is integrated in the right way - fast and useful, especially for bbm, managing my calendar and messaging. The calendar is a proper one, actually usable, more like the one on my Blackberry, and thankfully unlike the useless one on my iDevices. The browser is faster than the one on my ipad2 and has Flash as well, so using it to browse the web feels more like being on a proper desktop rather than halfway there. Video recording and playback on the PlayBook beats the ipad2 by a mile, it's great how you can even zoom in on a video that is playing, but video recording is not quite as good as on my iPhone 4 in low light. The messaging application deals with multiple email accounts and integrates Facebook and Twitter in a very slick way, and is the best of all the tablets. Highly recommend it, it really is another class of tablet.
