The Blackberry Playbook Review, The Best of Three Worlds?

The reason I say the best of three worlds, is just that. The new Blackberry Playbook has the functionality of Android, the connectivity of Blackberry, and their own operating system that is similar if not better than HP’s WebOS. The new Blackberry Playbook is a great tablet. It’s size is what struck me the most. It has a 7 inch screen, and is the perfect size to take around with you. Compared to the bigger tablets like the Motorola Xoom or the Ipad 2, its comfortable, light, powerful, and the screen is clear and crisp. I was amazed at the HD quality video that is played on this tablet, it was phenomenal.

Although there are competitive tablets out there like the upcoming release of the Acer Iconia which has both Android and Windows versions, Blackberry is still ahead of the game. The Blackberry Playbook comes with a dual ARM Cortex A9 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB to 64GB internal Memory, and there is a Wifi only or contract 4G verson as well. The Wifi starts out around $499, which is $100 less than the Motorola Xoom. It also has front and rear cameras, support 1080P HD video, and has dedicated graphics for excellent game and video capability.

It is less than 1/2 inch thick, and its 5×7 size fits easily in your pocket, purse or backpack. I was alsp happy to hear that Blackberry will be developing its own apps, and also allow you to have access to the Android apps as well. Also, if you have a Blackberry device, it will sync up to the tablet effortlessly. All in all, its a great tablet, I am more impressed after seeing it in my own hands. Finding Playbook accessories may be a challenge, but there are plenty out there.
