Anonymous, 13 May 2011Its crap, Its crap, Its crap, Its crap, Its crap! Ive seen it, it's pointless Blackberry are p... moreim a huge apple but after going to playbook event i have been converted to the playbook and how can it have internet issues when its only wifi duuhhhh
Yo_DJ, 11 May 2011I heard it is only 425g. But most guys say it's heavy. Anyone knows the real weigh?I work in a phone shop and we've just had the Blackberry Playbook rep come in, I've been told it only weighs 400 grams.
Out here in the Philippines but not officialy.
in blackmarket 16gb cost around 27k-32k Php.
it should only cost around 21-23k Php.
BTW, its a great device, but too young.
Its crap, Its crap, Its crap, Its crap, Its crap! Ive seen it, it's pointless Blackberry are pointless, it's the most common handset i see back for problems with the software, the 'D' pad and BBM and internet issues and this is going to be the same. Its not a GSM device and it has only Blackberry software that mis-guided Blackberry users who have no life will find useful to buy with there Jobseekers allowance. Its called the 'Playbook' it should have been named the 'Sh1tbook'. It won't sell and the sales figures will say it all for all of you out there who defend a pointless manufacturer.
I heard it is only 425g. But most guys say it's heavy. Anyone knows the real weigh?
Good job, but was expecting better finishing on the device... Little too heavy
P35,000.00 in the Philippines. More than half of that for the "Blackberry" nameplate alone. You can get an iPad or a Galaxy Tab here for less money and that'll have 3G... and even for much less for wifi-only version. The Blackberry guys here (and telcos) are hyping it up as an "executive" device when you get just about the same features (give or take) out of the thing.
I just get it today. it's well made device in Taiwan. very good screen in terms of resolution & viewing angle for perfect web browsing - desktop like. the playbook is a better tablet with good camera, clear sounded speakers but very limited apps atm.
king sparks, 03 Mar 2011Very sad......... useless if you dont own a blackberry deviceUseless if you don't own a blackberry device; such statement is crap, the motto of detractors: you can get the internet connection from ANY cell phone which supports data sharing by bluetooth or wifi hotspot router as iPhone 4 supports now. You carry anyway a cell phone with data plan and email so you don't need cell phone receiver in tablet. You can use iPhone to thether by Bluetooth or hotspot wifi.
for anyone who posts no 3g i will clarify 2 things. one it can connect to any blackberry through bridge and use the network and memory. 2 it can connect to any smartphone or even non smart phone (although you wouldn't want to connect a non smartphone) through internet tethering built into the playbook. so basically if you have a phone it has 3g without having to pay for a shared plan.
Folks! why are u guys so ignorant and talk like u already done ur research?
Its a playbook and not a phone
there are models that support wifi
there are models that supports LTE
who in hell said that no data connection for this gadgeT?
Booo, 22 Mar 2011Blackberry without data connection = EPIC FAIL!check out the lte version for 3G and stop posting epic fail every time you see no 3G!
TB, 07 Apr 2011its crap! cant make calls and dont have the benefit of bis ! epic _fail indedeed!It already says 3G - NO....what made you think you could make calls from it!! -_-
Get a 3G enabled version if you wanna make calls!
I played around with it yesterday. Screen looks nice, UI is smooth, but it's really heavy and features are minimal... The weight really ruins it a lot.
