Absolute Bang for the Buck!

After having read up a lot on the playbook, I decided to take the plunge and pick it up during the offer period.

First bit of advice to anyone considering the Playbook, please do your own research, based on your requirements.

The Playbook is a brilliant device as an overall package. The biggest drawback is the lack of apps and the fact that the future of the device is uncertain. Having said that, OS 2.0 (Which has been reported to be made available in February) will support most Android ap...

Though I'm a Apple fanboy

I'm a gadget guy and I'm a Apple fanboy from the days of iPod classic and have owned many apple products but just thought of trying something new (motivated by my positive experience with Windows 7 phones).

Price: 14k or less is absolutely great price for a product of such build quality.

Camera: Works as expected from a 5mp (and 3mp) camera but remember there is no flash.

Speakers: Very good for a tablet, loud enough.

Touchscreen: Excellent resolution, at par with apple stuff. Great for p...

Excellent Product

It's probably the best productivity tool out there, in tablets that is. UI is superb. Hardware top notch. There is no perfect tablet out there, so depends on whether this fits your needs, but i must highlight that this product is extremely well made.

Big problem with PB has been choice of apps, which has started to change over the past many weeks. Also, with the 2.0 OS expected in Feb 2012, it'll be compatible with Android app world, which should address the problem. Having said this, it alr...

Better and cheaper than ipad 2

my friend got a ipad2 two months and i 've been using playbook for 4 months now here are the differences:-
1)price
Apple:pay more get less
playb:pay less get more

AT 14k for 16gb version it's a loot
2)hardware:
both are comparable in physical experience as such but play book has a better processor and camera

3)software & UI:
playbook is both multitasking and flash enabled therfore you will get a better browsing experience in playbook whick...

A superb tablet..worth its price

I have been using a 64GB Playbook with the new OS 2.0. Can tell one thing for sure, that gradually you will start loving this tablet more and more every passing day.

A few reasons which make it an absolute buy is its amazing speed, display, its access to android market (with OS 2.0 Update), native email client, integration with all social apps, battery backup and the build quality. BB has got it perfect with this masterpiece. Though many might draw comparisons with Ipad and other Android de...

Awesome

I bought to 4 months ago, i've never used my pc again. The OS is cool, the only problem was lack of apps, well its not a problem anymore. OS 2.0 will release soon which will allow users to run android apps. And with the current offer (free curve) i recommend you to take it.

My thoughts on PB

I was going to buy this tablet as flipkart was giving a heavy rebate.

But then again I don't have a bb, and without bb bridge its still not worth it, doesn't even have a native email client !! leave push mail !!

BBM will NOT come to playbook even on OS 2.0 (feb release).
No 3g, either bridge with bb or use an Android phone with hotspot.

App world is miserable/costly so now RIM is counting on the forthcoming android emulator, you can be sure there will be very few apps optimized for pb and...

Superb high quality tablet for a very low price

I ordered this tablet on Wednesday night (16th may) and this product got delivered yesterday morning while I was away (18th may) - superfast service by Flipkart. Thank you very much Flipkart.

I opened the package last night and was very delighted to hold and feel this stunning beauty in my hands. I powered it ON and it popped with a welcome screen and detected my wifi network. Upon connection, I was prompted with a couple of more configuration options (time, blackberry id, so on). After sig...
