noob , the playbook has the best flash player ever ...
the pb browser supports flash natively , besides that with a rooted and corectly configured playbook it beats ipad and android , since a rooted playbook will run full android it works really well in android and under its native os (playbook os a.k.a qnx linux)
Recently I bought wifi only playbook. Surprisingly I found this model does not have compatibility with samsung galaxy s2 i9100.
I tried creating wifi hotspot from s2 but playbook failed to used teather from s2 and use internet. I went to samsung center ,same s2 can teather with othr tabs and phones but not with playbook.
Now, I went to blackberry center , none of playbook model support teather from s2.
I come to know that playbook does not support teather from many other samsung models.
Buyer take care of that.

Kunal, 05 Jan 2012I dont have any black berry phone.\ Is this better for me?? Should i buy this or not???Hi, you will buy blackberry because it's not better it is best. use for fast net. And not only that it has a good futures. And giving u a suggetion blackberry 9360 is best and it is basic model in os7.
xxpenxx, 05 Jan 2012Too anyone out there who owns one of these, I'm stuck with getting this or the Dell Streak 7. ... moreGoogle Maps don't work with BB PlayBook, there is no BB PlayBook app for it and the web app gets stuck at loading the page. I was shocked when I found such bug in PlayBook browser. It has a link on its home screen to bing that works fine but not very smooth. It has embedded GPS but you still need a phone with data plan that works as router on WiFi (then probably you will use the phone for maps, more handy). Such tablet is good only for around home or for certain business applications, its screen is too small for entertainment. Yet, it's worth for $200.
Do not buy one...they have been promising apps for this thing for 8 or 9 months and still nothing of any substance...if you own a BlackBerry phone, maybe; if not, stay away...
Too anyone out there who owns one of these, I'm stuck with getting this or the Dell Streak 7.
The main function I want the tablet for, is going onto Google Maps, and using it to plan my route for my days work. As you can set destinations etc, and it helps find what addresses are closer etc.
Any comments/replies to my enquiry would be Much Appreciated!!

I find the playbook smooth, easy to use, even when I have it loaded full, it's still quick at opening applications and very fast browsing, play youtube videos with no buffer, perhaps it's your WIFI that is the issue, not your playbook.

Anonymous, 30 Dec 2011I have both iPad 2 and BB PlayBook. I use them regularly and I compare there features. As hard... moregive the playbook a chance you only seem to be focusing on the not so good points of the playbook and comparing them to the good points of the ipad. what about 5mp rear camera and a 3mp front camera both of which shoot 1080p video. twice the ram of the ipad- 1gb. true multitasking. smooth flash playback on youtube and bbc iplayer, the ipad doesn't even support flash. i'm not saying that the ipad is a bad tablet but it has it's faults aswell.
