feman, 19 Oct 2012plz reply me what i have should to buy this or galaxy tab 2 7.0 P3110 ??Do not buy the blackberry. PlayBook because it doesn't has any Apps for example Skype there isn't in the appstore which means it's not possible to install apk file format applications.
Please who has an idea when Blackberry will come up with a new Playbook; with new updates and better specs?
I like Samsung Galaxy Tab/Note. But BlackBerry PlayBook is also interesting with BlackBerry Services. Two ways to connect BlackBerry PlayBook. You can connect your BlackBerry mobile with BlackBerry PlayBook and get all services and as well with wifi connection also. If the price of BlackBerry PlayBook is much cheaper than go for it otherwise Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 P3110
plz reply me what i have should to buy this or galaxy tab 2 7.0 P3110 ??
bodunrin, 17 Oct 2012can i ping with my blackberry play if yes pls how, pls i need help. firstname.lastname@example.orgYes, you can use the BBM when you have your BB phone connected to the playbook thereby setting up the blackberry bridge. Aside using the BBM, with the latest update of 184.108.40.2062, you can send and receive text messages on your PlayBook.
And yes, I finally took delivery of my Playbook last week. I must confess it's lived up to its billing. I've been so addicted to it ever since. In fact, my wife is scared of my new better half.
The blackberry bridge has come in so handy when I find myself where I have no access to a wifi network. With my BlackBerry phone, I don't miss a thing. It should be pointed out that one doesn't necessarily need a BB phone to connect the PlayBook to the Internet. As long as you have a phone that has bluetooth connectivity and a data plan running, you're good to go.
In the meantime, my new love story continues.

Ambrish Soni, 15 Oct 2012Hi friends,I have recently brought playook and would like to mention I am well satisfied with ... moreI assumed that you are from India. You had mentioned that you have paired the playbook with BB mini keyboard. Please advise where I can get BB mini keyboard? I am searching for the same since long time for my PB. If you have original BB keyboard or any other android keyboard which is compatible with PB? Please guide.
There might be other devices with more to offer but the playbook along with blackberry bridge makes this a solid device.really happy with mine
Hi friends,I have recently brought playook and would like to mention I am well satisfied with the device.I have paired the playbook with BB mini keyboard and BB curve 9320 3G vodafone carrier.I have wi fi at my works and home and when in travel I tether playbook with my phone 3G and noteworthy to mention I get amazing internet speed.Its a great organizer,my all needs like BBM,mails,FB,twitter,maills,calender,video conferences,linkedin,ebay,banking, and ebooks are satisfied with this.it has got amazing graphics experience-if you are gamer then this device is 'you should have'.
What's going on here... I've updated my OS to 220.127.116.112 and the cameras and video not working. How am I going to use the camera and video when it is not working... when it was running on 2.0 everything seems to be fine... but now... When is the fix. Can anyone help me on this. I've tried wipe and still doesn't work...
I've had my PlayBook for over a week now and I initially went into buyers remorse. You need a Ph.d just to do the initial setup. But now I'm getting the hang of it I'm loving it. It's still to heavy.

It's a handy toy, but the only major flop is that you have to wifi it during initial setup before you can even play with the Playbook. So don't do a security swipe unless you absolutely have to.
Re having phone app/function on playbook: Yes! Why not?! I am surprised that neither Apple nor BB have make their tablets also phones. Consolidation is evolution. It offers "choice" and convenience.
I would still buy a bb phone AND a playbook as I have different requirements at different times of my day as executive.
No doubt the deviceis having a high end hardware.... What actually lacking is the appropriate apps. Though there are many apps but a few are there for playbook...
And the one which is there is very costly. As far as sideloading is concerned converting android app to blackberry app is not that easy... Overall 5/10
farscape1, 23 Sep 2012Just bought this device 64gb model £129 from pc world this is a good piece of kit. Bough... moreHonestly, the high prices Apple products bear has been the major turn off for me over the years. I expect my own 64GB Playbook to be delivered from the UK sometime this week and boy, I'm surely gonna put that baby to work.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2012If you want to make a phone call with your playbook there is an app called comwave ephone. It'... moreReally interested in what u said re phone app for PlayBook. I need a tablet to type press releases at conferences and surf net etc... but I don't want to carry another mobile also. My co all BB, not Apple FYI!
So would this work as a 'work' fon pls?
On my fifth attempt at installing PB update 2.1 I am slightly disillusioned that it is not as slick as Apple's updates. OTA updates failed (2 times) so I resorted the BB Desktop Manager but this method has failed a couple of times too and I have resorted to by baby sitting the installation watching it like a hawk and voila it's failed again!! Any interruption with something simple like the screen sleeping makes the installation fail saying it was been interrupted!!
I highly rate PB as a device but this update has been frought with difficulty and its beginning to try my patience not with starting Gigs of data download for nothing as it fails? Other updates have been successful so I'm disappointed this one has been so tetchy. Any ideas?
I just traded a Nexus 7 for a 64 GB Playbook. I was apprehensive at first, as the Nexus 7 is a Quad Core, Jellybean-running beast, but maxed out at 16GB. I wanted something I could put a ton of movies, shows and music on, and still have room left over for apps. Once the trade was made, I was NOT DISSAPOINTED! The playbook does everything that I need, and a large chunk of the apps I used on Android, I was able to get running through the Android "player" via side-load (which is NOT as difficult as most people make it out to be). For anyone looking for a useful tablet, versus the "next big thing", or "flashy, show off device", this is the device for you. Just do a Google, Bing, or whatever search engine you use, search, and you'll see that the potential of a Playbook, even after being on the market for well over a year, still seems to outweigh that of the Android and iPad, from a stability perspective.
