Blackberry is also cost effective due to their unlimited data plan.
if you're using a blackberry playbook with a 3g simcard, is it necessary to activate any blackberry pack/services or doest it work like a normal tablet on normal 3g plans......
Considering Business needs and usability this is Best Tablet. Mind it, its not a toy for kids. Very Solid constrution unlike "Plasticy" most Android Tabs. Screen resolution, response, Audio and touch sensitivity is way better then so called market leaders. Whinners will keep whinning but if asking usability and price this is best product. That true that RIM is struggling now a days but who has not is the past? Did Apple not? Was not Motorolla sold? peopl forget that RIM is the company with Zero debt on them. They have Technology which is trusted by Governments(Including US) and Apple Garden still could not invent ISecurity yet. I am on this forum for past 4 years and so far to my experience 80% people who through expert advice on it, have never touched the device. The like to whine and mourn for something that they only experienced in a Electronics Stores for 5 mins untill Sales Agent comes and say 'May I help you'. .and they go NO NO just looking and then like to run away, So Pathetic
Anonymous, 24 Aug 2012I don't think this device will be a good buy for someone living in a remote area. Most places ... moreyou are very correct. Some people are already asking me to order for them when in actual fact most of them are living in an EDGE environ so how will they enjoy the cellular feature. my opinion i'd rather stick with the wifi models and use my bridge to do my jobs on it. cellular not it for us for now
I don't think this device will be a good buy for someone living in a remote area. Most places in Nigeria can barely boast of EDGE talk more of a 3G...
in My Region, no 4G network available yet, only 3G, not even 3.5G - but Data speed is quite fast for me on my iPad (3G) - will the Playbook 4G LTE support same micro sim 3G I currently use? - pls advise -
temple, 18 Aug 2012Is it sim compartible or just wirelessHow else would you connect to a 4g network unless you had a compatible sim card? ;)
rafamx.mx, 13 Aug 2012I disagree with you, I think this OS is capable of doing a lot of things, even more than Andro... moreTry Atrix 2. It worked very well hand in hand with my old playbook.
Regarding your comment, I disagree. BB OS will never be as customizable as Android, and it was never meant to be. BB is all about security, and it is simply something you cannot guarantee if users have too much access to the inner workings of the OS. That's why for app developers, it is far more difficult to make one work (and approved) for BB OS than android and iOS.
If Samsung does buy RIM then i see no downside to this,I see the OS 2 or OS 10 software on samsung tabs and phones, i see bbms on samsung products and of course the push email tech. Either samsung maintains the name to keep the blackberry market or do' away with it but the mix-up would be great for consumers.
