5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT TABLET, 5 April 2012
This review is from: BlackBerry PlayBook - Tablet - 16 GB - 7" TFT ( 1024 x 600 ) - rear camera + front camera - Wi-Fi, Bluetooth (Personal Computers)
I am going to keep this short. I am 60 years old and this is my first tablet,I own a high end laptop so know my way around without being an expert. This Playbook is an excellent product,after two days use I am very pleased with it. Set up was fine and was achieved with a free phone call to excellent Blackberry support. I have transferred 800 songs at 128 onto it from itunes...very easy. I have transferred music videos and one film and BBT episodes onto it with no trouble. Sound is Ok and with headphones terrific. Surfing the web is very fast,I have soon got used to all the gestures. Youtube looks and sounds great,flash videos play fine. I have used BBC iPlayer and the playback is fine ,I have listened to BBC radio through iplayer and works fine so no need to buy apps for these functions. Ch4od works fine as does ITV player (no apps needed there too). the built in media player is very good and plays instantly . Free weather as well. Screen picture is excellent. Mini usb cable is included as is a small tight cover and cleaning cloth. 10 out of 10 for the Blackberry Playbook,at the reduced price (launched at £399) it is an absolute steal. I paid £169. my yahoo email works fine and if you look at it in messages it is very large and readable. Well thats it......

These are the exact kind of reviews I like! It's short, simple, the Playbook appears to see to your needs brilliantly and works how you want it to. I haven't got a Playbook as yet, but I am getting one. I do Hospital Radio and the idea of being able to produce my shows on a device I can fit in my bag with the greatest of ease is amazing. A device that I can produce audio clips on and play directly on radio from, is so good. I have used the iPad as they have them at work and know they aren't for me at all. Too big, overpriced, overrated, and restricted by what Apple say you can do.

Too many people complain about the Playbook, but reading what they are being negative about, my advice would be to ignore it unless it can be backed up. Your review - spot on! Thanks.
