Customer Reviews of BlackBerry PlayBook 64GB Tablet
It could be better9/3/2013
This is a wonderful tablet! I really like the bridge! There is one downside, however. The Kindle app is not supported on this device nor many other useful and popular apps. I contacted Blackberry customer service and was coldly advised that I should use other ebook apps and not hold out hope for the Kindle app. Considering I have thousands of dollars worth of periodicals and books on Kindle, including my School Books, I am disenchanted and disappointed with that answer. I highly recommend this device (wouldve given 5 stars prior to issue above) even with the app issues.
Keyboards with Pazazz8/24/2013
The keyboards have large letters, very easy to key. Easy to see in the dark while the wife sleeps without a light on. Excellent for those late or early internet users.
Best bang for the buck!8/23/2013
Although I'm still learning all the things I can do with this tablet, I was blown away with the deal. "No name" tablets are being sold for the same price, but with less power, class and intrinsic value. I'm hoping Blackberry will emerge successfully or be purchased, so the Playbook will be supported into the future, but for the price I paid, what is already there is more than enough for the money.
SLOW Start Up8/22/2013
Nice little tablet, but wow, be prepared to grow old waiting for the start up.
The playbook works great. Great deal. Thanks
Well, I took a chance on Blackberry to support this platform that has a lot of promise. They really should transition to the android OS, they need to realize the market has already come to the conclusion. While the new OS release allows most android apps to work, they must be converted and used inside a shell...
Wish there're more good apps available3/18/2013
Good product with ample storage and design. However, the apps' availability is quite limited. I checked the Web for the Skype app for BB Playbook and still not there yet! Too bad, it's a good product without enough good apps.
everyone loves apple or android, qnx is counter-culture but it performs! i'm a convert now! my next phone might be a Q10. thanks RIM.
Product is really great. Just need apps to be current with their competitors.
I love my Playbook. I am so glad I waited for its release. WOW I've had the Playbook for over two months, use daily and have taken it with me everywhere I go. As such, I have more information and thoughts to share.
Love the playbook, but it is lacking some critical apps. Skype, Slingplayer
value for the money,4/26/2012
the screen was bit small for my liking.
Nice tablet, but a little sluggish3/29/2012
Great bang for the buck for a 7" tablet with tons of memory. Tablet works quite well and I love the 7" form factor. (I also own a 10" Samsung Galaxy Tab and find myself using the 7" Playbook more often due to it's small portable size.) RIM's OS is a bit different than Android and Apple's iOs but it's easy to get the hang of. 64gb of memory is great. Can store all sorts of stuff on the tablet.
I like the ability to tie the Playbook to my Blackberry (Storm 2) when there isn't WiFi available. I use it separately when the WiFi is available.
What a steal!2/20/2012
I was at first hesitant,since I didn't know much about BB or their products. So, I jumped at the price of this jewel and was so impressed at what I discovered. Once you search online for support,, a flood of info and support comes and you discover the capabilities of what the Playbook can do. With the coming out of 2.0 the discoveries will multiply.I wanted an Ipad2, but I now see that taking a chance exeeded my expectations. Right now there aren't a lot of popular app choices from BB, but I see that changing soon. If you're looking for a tablet, make the leap to the Playbook. My grandkids all gave it a thumbs up.
Just Love it
Smooth as silk...2/2/2012
I ordered the 64gb version of the Playbook when it was available and have been more than pleased with its performance. It operates as smoothly as silk, the screen is incredibly clear and bright, and the battery-life appears to be more than adequate. I rate it at four-stars, because I'm waiting for the arrival of the 2.0 version of the OS, which is supposed to include provisions for utilizing Android apps. If they get it right, this will have been a steal-of-a-deal!
a well designed tablet1/28/2012
I selected the BB Playbook, because I use BB phones and wanted the ease of being able to see my emails without needing to add another subscription data plan. Using the 'BB bridge" this is accomplished. The 7" inch screen is an idea size, just large enough to view and read without eye strain, yet small enough to place in my laptop bag. I use it to view videos, which display in HD. I get 3 to 5 hours of video before recharging. It has an ebook function, and I have been able to read some with ease. The unit is very well constructed with volume keys, headphone jack well placed. I am still adjusting to using my fingers to control functions, but overall I am glad I waited for the BB playbook.
I love my BB PlayBook, its the best tablet so far in the market, tried iPad but I didn't like it. The PlayBook has EVERYTHING! I can surf the net just like I surf on my desktop computer, I can share my BIS plan with it and get BBM, E-mail, etc. The Screen is really awesome, the cameras are pretty cool, the speakers are very good, I can do video chat from PB to PB with my friends. Use Skype (imo.im), Play Angry Birds on the net, listen to live radio (iheartradio.com), use Photoshop (Photoshop.com), Download torrents, Listen to music (dilandau.com), Play games on Facebook, take 1080p videos, EVERYTHING. I absolutely recommend this awesome product. You will not regret of it.
