Outstanding building quality

The table has excellent construction quality. It looks and feels good in your hand. Rubberized back makes it easy to hold. Front speakers look great and sound good.

Great Screen

With the 7 inch display, the BlackBerry Playbook is ultraportable; You can almost put it in your pocket, provided you have unusual big pockets. The screen is crisp and sharp and gives crisp images.

The table has a touch of a wide wide bezel. Swipe your finger over the frame and you can wake up the screen or launch menus.

Great Playback of Videos

The BlackBerry Playbook offers excellent video playback. It has a micro HDMI output port for transferring video to external HDTV. The table can also record video at 1080p resolution.

Superb Multitasking

The BlackBerry Playbook operates a QNX-based operating system that offers outstanding support for multi-tasking. It is similar to Palm webOS in many materials and works brilliantly. You can have multiple video windows playing simultaniously. Best of all, the tablet supports Adobe Flash, which means that no part of the web is intact.

Currently there are only about 3000 programs available for the chart. Many of these are repeating BB phone apps. On the bright side, RIM has announced that it is working to make the tablet compatible with Android applications. This compatibility will not come until later this year though.

The table replaces pre loaded applications for word processing, presentations and spreadsheets. However, there is no native email on the PlayBook. You can access your email from your BlackBerry smartphone via Bluetooth. There is one problem though: Your phone needs to stay very close to the table.


BlackBerry Playbook is an ultraportable tablet with a decent operating system. It's not perfect, but it's fun to play with. The biggest downer, at the moment, is the limited availability of applications for the platform. Fix it and RIM can be sure it has a winner in hand.
