Blackberry as of the pricing at the moment is the best priced-tab in the market. Clear & crisp display, good camera for stills and HD video recording. Web browsing is fast and great display, office software is very handy and useful. Apps and games that are available are the best. A few dozen of quality apps and games is way better than tons of craps! I am okay with games and apps that I have. Playbook might not compete well with Galaxy Tab and Iphone, but its probably better than all the rest. I saw an Android Tab from no name company sells 280 USD, with specs that is infrior than playbook.
Fast browser, clear display, multi tasking,
Limited app support, no skype, no video calls, limited games, need to convert android apps to .iba format to install on this bb playbook.
Skype annouced that it will not support bb pb. Thats why its on bargain and not reproduced..
Buy an Ipad or Android tab!!
When it comes software support and loads of new apps and games. Only android and ios are the stable ones.
adi9833015454, 16 May 2012i am thinking to buy blackberry play book....is it a worth buying product ?? i went to mobile ... moreAre you crazy? The minimum price for 16 GB playbook in market is around 14K. Please check if they are really offering playbook @ just 6K. Micromax fun book is available around 6.5K. It seems you are talking about Micromax fun book & not BB playbook.
I purchased BB playbook two months back & am very much satisfied with the overall performance. I need keyboard case for BB playbook. Please let me know where can I get the same in Mumbai? (RIM original or BB compatible). On BB website US, it is showing out of stock. Not sure, if at all it ever came to India.
adi9833015454, 16 May 2012i am thinking to buy blackberry play book....is it a worth buying product ?? i went to mobile ... moreIts been one month with my playbook.i purchased it from official outlet of BlqckBerry(hira-panna,haji ali)
Even i was searching for a budget tab and i did have an option of galaxy tab 7 and this playbook.
And same as u...most of the shopkeepers tried to convince me to buy galaxy tab rather than playbook...simply because of the price diffrence,nothing else !!!
But personally i didnt like the honeycomb perfomance at all,so i went with the playbook and trust me i have no regrets at all !!! It saves me quite some bucks too ;)
Only disspointing part is its camera,other than that i am very happy with my choice,best of luck. :)
The Blackberry Playbook is great when browsing websites, doing office works (word,excel), taking photos and videos with good lighting...
Although there are limited games (need for speed, blood and glory, backbreaker 2), they run quite well and virtually no crashes..
it might take some time of getting used to but if you got the hang of it, the Playbook is one of the best tablet pc to date..
and let's wait for the Blackberry 10 OS.... ohhh boy! =))
i am thinking to buy blackberry play book....is it a worth buying product ?? i went to mobile store to check but manager said we sold playbook in 6000 rs as a sale becoz company has stopped its production due to bad quality product and those ppl was convincing me for galaxy tab which was fuck all....plz let me know where is the best store in mumbai to buy and also where can i get a demo
ab, 30 Apr 2012gooodnesss meeee !!! superimly pissed by its bloody SW update !!! x-( tried it 3 times and ... moreno the BB PB doesn't charge via USB while connected to the PC, be patient charge it up and download the update again it's worth it
sidthecool, 08 May 2012I just want 2 know dat whether blackberry playbook support apps of android or not. And if yes ... moreBB Playbook can run Android apps but only those which are converted to Playbook platform. Some of the converted apps can be found in the AppsWorld and can be directly downloaded and installed to Playbook. The other way is to install an app to Playbook as a sideload. Sideloading is uploading an app to your device using another computer and specific program.
this black berry playbook is small and compact we can install apps from android market but it does not have sim card slot but we can make calls from yahoo nimbuzz and fring the device is so nice and very compact i do have playbook and my ipad i mostly enjoy on my device its so cheap and very budgetless tab thanku
