RIM BlackBerry PlayBook

Show all User reviews

Reviewed by M. Ryan Norris (Currently owns)

I have the 64GB PlayBook that I purchased at a very decent price, and it's a fairly good tablet considering some of the very apparent flaws, such as low battery life compared with similar sized tablets, and a somewhat mediocre selection of applications in the BlackBerry App World.

The hardware is very good and durable, the weight is not too bad, and the selection of first party accessories are plentiful and similarly well designed. The software (after a few updates) is now usable, although more updates are still needed, such as adding BlackBerry Messenger and better support for working with BlackBerry 10 devices.

As is, the PlayBook is a decent device for audio / video playback, photo viewing, internet browsing, and very basic document creation.
