So I'm not the only one experiencing the sudden crash of the browser. To me it happens daily. Very annoying. Has anybody submitted a complain to Blackberry. What was the answer?
My son has an ipad 2, so that was my first thought when considering a tablet.
However, the PB was considerably cheaper - £199 for a 32Gb PB versus £329 for a 16Gb ipad.
Price isn't everything, of course - but when I checked out the PB in the store I was hugely impressed by the build quality and by the slckness of the OS
I wanted a tablet for occasional use - for accessing the web & email when sitting waiting for my wife as she shops -;), and also capable of playing videos and films.
The PB does these things, and much more, with ease.
I'm not very bothered about 'apps' - so the limited number of PB apps is not a consideration for me. What I want is easy web connection, decent email, and a gadget fast enough to stream You Tube and play video files without problems.
The PB does this - and is small enough to be extremely convenient.
I'm sure there are 'better' tablets out there - and there will be certainly be better tablets available this time next year. However, for the price/quality/feature set, I think the PB is a very decent buy at the moment.
Please launch with support for GSM voice communication, SMS, and MMS.
Then this will be superb product

Why mine goes all day running, playing stream music in back and surfing ? Charging it once a day / two ? Charging takes 2 and half hours, Booting take less than 2 minutes, well screen is 7 in , small to carry on travels, but crisp, detailed, and big enough to show full size website. Speaking out of my experience. At the price 199 USD it is the best tablet on the market !
by d end of 2012 there will be new major update.

You can't surf web too long; the screen is cramped in 7 inches. The updated PlayBook 2.0 OS boots in 7 minutes, too long; on stand-by it drains the battery in about one day or two, too short time between recharges.
i dont care about apps in the appworld. Nowadays is everytbing on the web. Chat, video, dictionaries,..etc..Playbook is the best i experienced for surfing the web. Small , versatile, fastest on the market, and whats more over, it has flash ! .and it streams flash video. I don,t. Mention applications for office, cos i dont use it. I love mine 16 GB. Milion devices sold worldwide.

I just recently bought a playbook 32gb for $249. Did I make a right choice of spending money on this and not spend more money on a samsung galaxy tab? What u all think? Good or bad
ubippu, 27 Mar 2012Bought the 16gb Playbook 4 months ago,have waited for OS 2.0, but frankly speaking after OS 2.... moreEh, Playbook is for people who know good English! It is made by English Canadians for themselves, Eh!
Bought the 16gb Playbook 4 months ago,have waited for OS 2.0, but frankly speaking after OS 2.0 came out, the tablet is still incomprehensible in relation to the apps in the Appworld (so to speak). I have been searching for a decent English to English Dictionary App but still couldn't managed to find one. I just could not get it when developers seemed uninterested to develop an app related to English dictionary and/or thesaurus. Gonna sell my playbook today and buy back Ipad 2 (since the price has massively gone d down)
rajeev gupta, 24 Feb 2012I've noticed that the android player freezes quite often rendering all android applications us... moreI am having same freeze-ups when trying to load some android apps frequently. I would hope that the Android based apps at the App store could be flagged so we can take take care to run them when time wastage is not an issue.
Thank goodness for the OS2 upgrade - Makes the Playbook what it should've been at launch - Fun, flexible, powerful and comprehensive (OS1 didn't have predictive text for example, or even email hosting unless tethered to your blackberry). There's a growing list of Android apps becoming available officially, and unofficially a growing number of Android apps available to be side-loaded on to the Playbook (which is how I got the Kindle app on mine).
Side effect is that now the web browser occasionally spontaneously closes - Expect that fixed in OS2.01 I'm sure.
