Blackberry PlayBook 32 GB
Advantages: Good graphics and sound quality, fast processor, well priced, great battery life
Disadvantages: Could be vunerable to some cosmetic failure in some places, disapointing app store
The 7'' playbook itself weighs 425 g which is a nice weight for a tablet of its kind since it is light weight which allows comfort whilst holding it, the back of the playbook also has a nice smooth feel to it. I have had mine in a case since I purchased it however it has somehow picked up a large scratch on the back which questions its cosmetic durability. The 7'' screen allows typing to become an easy task without making the screen too small. It also includes a front and back camera which is useful and also helps out with the playbook video call feature however not too many people own a playbook in comparison to certain other rival tablets which makes finding people to video call a hard task. The battery life is also very large and can last up to 10 hours multimedia playback time.
The device itself includes useful features such as being able to use flash so most things on the internet can be accessed without any complications. The tablet also has a feature called blackberry bridge which allows the device to connect to a blackberry phone and can run off the phones internet which allows mobile use of internet on the playbook and also the phone can be used as a keyboard and mouse for the device, also some of the phones features like text and bbm can be accessed through the playbook. Document creators are also installed on the table which definately makes it an ideal device for a student or for work purposes, documents can also be printed straight from the playbook.
The device's graphics are crystal clear and internet is fast allowing great video playback, however there is definately a lack of sources for watching things available on the playbook and the appstore is not great which if improved would make the device almost perfect because better apps is what it is lacking. Sound quality is also great and allows the tablet to become something of a media device which is very useful. The devices software is very fast and also very easy to use so functions very well.
Overall, the Blackberry playbook does what it is meant to and for a very reasonable price but if the appstore was improved and more applications became available then the device would be even better than it already is but if you are looking for a decent and well priced device to maybe do work on or watch things or etc then you should definately consider purchasing a playbook.
Summary: Definatelly worth the money and does its job
