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.
