But ideally you should have a 3G network on your phone and then the web browsing speed on the playbook should be good enough for sane(read as acceptable) surfing.
The Playbook is being retailed at $199 in some stores in the US, you can check it at Bestbuy..it's only a matter of time, the prices are reduced for the playbook in India.
guys..an offer at some cities in india promises BB 8520 Curve FREE with this playbook at a price of about Rs.27,500 odd! my question being, how efficiently can i use the BIS service from this low end Curve 8520 phone over the playbook? also, do u think there wud be any catch coz this offer looks too gud to be true. And finaally, from 8520, can i upgrade to OS6 or mayb OS7 by any chance?
in my country there isn't many tablet options. so i am considering buying this, but i wonder if i will miss android and if the 7 inch is better than 10, do you think 7 inch tablet are better than 10?
Its a nice tab..but it never support any andriod or ant other market...Junk for Facebook and Youtube only...sold it for free....
how to transfer pictures and videos from my BB bold 9780 to PB?....everything was in order to but still cannot get thru as the transfer always failed. is there any ideas how to overcome this?
jocol, 10 Dec 2011Can playbook open MS word, excel and pdf?yepp it can . uses document to go for reading and editing . edits word and excel . but presentations are read only . for pdf uses the powerfull Adobe reader inside . no need to install anything . these are all preinstalled .
works fine with Bold 9700, 9780, torch 9800, 9810, 9850, 9860, bold 9900, for sure I've also heard it is compatable with the curve 9360, and 9370
as from experience and testing and knowledge the playbook is compatible with bold 9700 and 9900. there maybe more and others but these i can personally verify.
Can someone PLS!! , tell me what blackberry phones are compatible with the playbook , (names and model numbers) i want to get this for my daughter for xmas gift. Thank you very much for your help on this guys.
stranger, 20 Nov 2011Do you advice me to buy BlackBerry PlayBook ?Based on recent news the playbooks price will soon be heavily discounted so i'd wait till then and score yourself a great tablet at a great price.
Great tablet if you're into media. The screen is amazing when playing 1080p videos and the speakers pump out some good sounds. For a fixed focus camera it takes pretty good pictures and the HD video recording is equally as good imo. Its only missing a couple of handy features for me at the moment. Most importantly the app store is rather limited which can be a little frustrating but with support for android apps coming in the future it should get better. Secondly is its inability to stream audio via bluetooth. Might not be a high priority for some but for me it is and considering many low end devices can do it i dont see why a high end device like the playbook cannot.
i recommend it to every geek . i use it for 1080p playback , High Quality PDF reading , Photo/video capturing . it's great in all of these .
just go to ESP (or any other site !) and download Electric guitars catalog ! and test PDF readers in every device ! any device smoother , better !
and blackberry and Ipad 2 were best along all 2ual core Tablets .
u can streaming on youtube only with your Blackberry Internet Service
