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.
I got a new bb tablet 16Gb yesterday the 24th of March and it has frozen about 100 times. As at now, I restarted it and for about 30minutes now, it hasn't finished booting. Earlier, the capacity info was empty so I couldn't access my songs and other stuff. I'm getting frustrated and I need help. Or did I make a wrong decision over ipad.

Is this tablet worth all the money? I am currently using BB Curve 9360 and I'm looking for a tablet that is worth the price and won't regret buying it. I need you feedback regarding this guys. Thank you!
lex, 19 Mar 2012Playbook does not do Android. It has very little apps.Playbook has over 10,000 Apps. The App selection is fine. Your comment more relates to when it was launched....
Blackberry playbook will not run android apps unless you root it.
It does not have a sim card/ 3G/ HSPA/ GPRS/ LTE. it only has Wifi support and bluetooth.
Also if you have a blackberry phone you could you blackberry bridge (tethering type) so you can go online without wifi.
playbook doesn't have expandable memory. its only built-in
it has flash player so you can watch videos on any website. it also has support for the latest HTML5 webpages.
video recording is 1080p High definition. and rear camera is 5MP. which is really good. fron camera is 3Mp great for video call.
OS 2 of the playbook has built-in e-mail client. so its awesome.
not the best but great. only $149.00 bucks for 32GB @ best buy stores in North America with 1 year warranty. No kidding. Not bad for a tablet.
