Just great . use bluetooth tethering with even a low end phone and surf the web on the go .
1080p Video recording . even on front camera .
and read the most heavy PDFs like 1800 page books with ease . compared with asus transformer . if you like 40 pages with 10 apps in each of them (that youll not use in your wholelife !) then dont buy this . but if you want a tablet , it's a must have . any problems ? ask .

There's 1 thing that you're not gonna like it. Apps. Nothing interesting in BB App Store.
why appworld and kobobooks etc must use wifi? can't use bis connection? what a pity...
C-2, 28 Oct 2011If you dont have a bb phone, can you still use BBM?no you cant, you can only use BBM if the tab is tethered to your blackberry however you can use the App world over wifi
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2011Useless if you don't own a blackberry device; such statement is crap, the motto of detractors:... morethanks for the feedback. i was confusing whether to buy bb phone. because worry that the internet could not be connected.only dont have BBM lo..
1) One major drawback is no Flash Lite.
2) But one more major drawback is Blackberry App World does not support in many countries like in Pakistan etc. Please support so we can use playbook with Blackberry Handsets.
All others features are excellent.
useless piece of technology . bought it a week ago and sold it after 3days...go to hell BLACKBERRY
jack of all trades, owner of none. but still black berrys finest hour. only bb supper phone and 1Ghz. I've seen better... but not bad for a bb.
I have a playbook and have a blackberry curve 9300 and support blackberry services but still not support blackberry apps world in pakistan. Why? All Android and Apple apps supports but not BB apps..
Lollypop, 15 Oct 2011I have been using this for about a month now. This is a really nice toy with some draw backs. ... moreSo will you keep the playbook with you or decide to shift to another brand...?
It is something strange that the 3G/4G version of this tablet does not come up yet...
Hopefully there will be major revision and improvement on the 3G/4G version...LOL
I have been using this for about a month now. This is a really nice toy with some draw backs. The Video quality is excellent. (HQ is amazing) But you cant play all movie formats on the built in player. But you can download a movie player which can support all formats at a cost. This is a major failure. The ‘You tube’ app which comes by default will give you lot of problems. Best way to watch you tube is only to open a browser and open “youtube” on the internet. The application sucks.
The FB application installed by the manufacturer keeps crashing every 30 minutes. Most of the pictures formats are not supported. Even though the tablet is bridged to your phone, while other internet applications are running, FB keeps saying ‘Your not connected to Internet’. When you are in a page you do not see the friends ‘friends list’ in the info. This is a
Unlike on the BB phone, you can not access the apps world. You need to connect it to a WiFi area to connect Apps world.
There is actually no issue with the power button. Yes it is very difficult to operate but on the screen you have options to ‘Sleep’, ‘Restart’ and Shut down.
The rotation has many issues. The screen does not rotate (Orientation) smoothly. You need to show the sky and the earth to the screen to twist your screen to the portrait view or landscape view.
Web access and internet experience is far greater than any other tablet. The 1GB processor gives you a real advantage on the operation. Even when your bridged, your connection is very fast (Depending on your telecom provider). But the browser will close for no reason.
All pictures will show under “Pictures” but you cant make folders and hide folders. You need to buy apps from to support this.
Bing Maps can not identify your location. I tried this few time but didn’t work. So had to be satisfied with Maps on the phone. The tablet should be able to support as much as the phone Map does since the tablet has a bigger screen and can be used as a GPS while driving. The mobile Map works excellent in that case.
Voice notes can record and this is extremely good. I sang few songs in front of the Tablet and the playback gives studio quality.
Camera is good. View on the tablet is also good.
Using Word, Excel, and PP is very good. Not upto standard to edit documents. But to view, excellent.
ANN-1, 10 Oct 2011does this have blackberry messengerin a word....yes
it bluetooth bridges to your phone, so it will get all bbms u get on your phone
