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.

a well designed tablet

by Louis on 1/28/2012

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.

Features
Uncompromised Web Browsing: With the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, you get access to the full web--not a scaled down mobile version. That means you get all the rich websites, games, and videos, the way they are intended to be enjoyed. The PlayBook offers support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 and Adobe Mobile AIR as well as HTML5 and Webkit browser technology.
Multitasking: Other tablets claim to support multitasking, but it just isn't the same. On the BlackBerry PlayBook, apps can run simultaneously and in real time. It's a sophisticated approach to multitasking--giving you more choice around how your applications run, allowing you to tailor the experience to your individual needs.
Stunning Multimedia: Don't settle for amateur grade multimedia. Whether you're mobilizing your existing pictures, music, and videos, discovering new media or creating new content, the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet offers a high fidelity, multimedia experience allowing you to fully immerse yourself in whatever you enjoy.
The 7-inch multi-touch capacitive display has a 1024 x 600-pixel resolution for stunning playback of video and immersive 3D games. The PlayBook also comes with an HDMI output for connecting to a compatible HDTV or monitor and playing back Full HD 1080p video. It's compatible with video encoded in H.264, MPEG4, and WMV formats.
Ultra Portable: You don't spend your life on the couch, neither should your tablet. Your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is perfectly suited to your busy lifestyle--it's small enough to go anywhere and powerful enough to take you everywhere. And with the dual cameras, you'll be able to video chat with friends and family wherever you roam (and are connected to a Wi-Fi network). The forward-facing camera has a 3-megapixel resolution while the lens on the back offers a 5-megapixel resolution--and both cameras can capture video up to Full HD 1080p.
More Apps, More Choice: Discover a huge catalog of rich apps developed and optimized just for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet--all available through the BlackBerry App World storefront. Games like Need For Speed Undercover and Tetris, an eReader from Kobo and a powerful music store by 7Digital are just a few of the pre-loaded apps that come with the PlayBook. You can also download the Facebook for BlackBerry PlayBook app, which integrates popular features and functionality such as Facebook Chat, view and add friends, and interact with the News Feed.
Business Ready: The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is designed to empower those who want tools to power achievement. PlayBook enhances personal productivity and offers businesses a straight forward, no hassle way to quickly embrace tablet technology. It includes DocsToGo and Adobe Reader software as well as support for enterprise VPN connectivity and corporate intranet browsing.
BlackBerry Bridge: On its own, the BlackBerry PlayBook is a high performance tablet. But for BlackBerry smartphone users there are additional benefits added to the PlayBook experience, like access to BlackBerry services living on the handheld. Get access to BBM (BlackBerry Messenger), email, calendar, contacts, memo pad, tasks from your BlackBerry smartphone--all on the large display.
