Blackberry Playbook Review

The new blackberry playbook has definitely soared high on user’s excitement and expectation. Its newly released product has brought the market the indisputable choice of users including the raised eyebrows if it’s really worth the swap from the already established competitors. But can the new blackberry tablet kick off the leading Apple and Android technology on the market’s stiff competition? The Blackberry Playbook can be purchased from online retailers as well as from network operators which offer free tablet PC deals. They are currently available from Vodafone and Orange.

Playbook Design

The RIM’s new Blackberry PlayBook will be surely loved by techno buddies who prefer to have a portable gadget with its remarkable 1024 x 600 pixels 7-inch clear screen size packed with fascinating touch sensitivity. The resolution is quite perfect for its size plus it has a very detailed and rich color depth making it great when it comes to viewing photos or videos. With a 425g weight, it’s surely captivating to hold this product, which is embellished with a thin sophisticated gun metal frame surrounding its entire display.

Maximum Performance

The most shocking thing about this playbook is that it extraordinarily wrapped up everything in a super-sleek 10mm-thin featuring a QNX operating system with powerful 1GHz dual-core processor, a massive RAM of 1GB, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 3-megapixel front-facing camera with autofocus that can record a 1080p Full HD video but both without flash, Bluetooth, a fast-connecting WI-FI, USB, 1080p HD video playback with an HDMI-out port that is TV compatible, a headset jack that is 3.5mmm, a microphone and its speakers are practically one of the clearest and loudest speakers ever bundled in a tablet.

No 3G Support is a Disadvantage

Unfortunately, playbook doesn’t have a 3G support, so the WIFI is solely the way to connect to the net. Good thing is that you can connect it wirelessly to your blackberry smartphone through the BlackBerry Bridge that can let you access your emails, contacts or messenger and etc. Those looking a contract type of deals available similar to free laptop deals will be disappointed due to the lack of 3G support.

Easy Navigation with Multi-touch

Though if you’re not a previous Blackberry user, you may find this PlayBook a bit difficult to navigate since it supports a 4-finger multi-touch zooming the flicking up and down, left and right. Navigation can get even complicated at times due to its multi-touch functions but once you already get the hook of it, it certainly going to be much prettier to navigate.
Web browsing is the main spotlight of playbook. Its enthralling screen is just enough to display in full size web pages and can resize simply each pages making it accessible to adjust. The BBC iPlayer installed plays well and a Flash 10.1 and HTML5 with full support where you can enjoy playing flash games and perfectly browse YouTube videos. But despite the powerful pace of playbook especially when using its user interface accompanied with stutter-free video playback and an attractive transition between its apps, there’s apparent lag when you rotate portraits in landscape modes.
The battery life is OK since it is similar to other tablets where you can manage up to 1 to 2 days between charges depending on your usage.

Conclusion Not Yet a Leader in Tablet Devices


Clearly, BlackBerry has offered a reliable multi-functional device but very poor when compared with the iPad2. It’s truly an excellent deal for an existing Blackberry user but not good as a consumer tablet for the mass market. And if you opt to have a professional like photos, then this playbook is not for you.
