Comment: This does seem a bit over the top, to say the least.
Yes, we know that AT PRESENT there's no email or contacts without a Blackberry. And yes, it's at least arguable that these should have been there at the start. But that's a long way from saying that it needs the link for "many key features to work".
And when you're rubbishing the impending email client not on the basis that it won't resolve the issue or work, but that (unseen) it's a "halfway house", and that it can't possibly be any good because the tablet is in some unquantified way intended to be "symbiotic" with the phone system, it might be a good idea to take a deep breath. Calm down, dear.
Good: All its features
Comment: Blackberry's first tablet PC, Blackberry Playbook is really a sensational device. It has 1GHz dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU and runs on BlackBerry Tablet OS. Further, it is also featured with dual camera primary is of 5 MP and secondary one is of 3 MP. i want to buy it and also checked certain price comparison portals for best Blackberry Playbook deals and found bestcontractmobilephone to be a better option. I found all cost effective deals for Blackberry Playbook along with free gifts and free incentives.
Good: The forward facing video camera, looks good build quality, the OS looks easier to use than in the video for the Xoom, 4G, mini HDMI
Bad: It's expensive (but aren't they all)
Comment: Looks the best of the tablets listed on cnet's Best tablets article By Luke Westaway and it looks very easy to work with, and a confortable size.
Good: Speed, Multi tasking, Size
Bad: Will probbaly cost a lot
Comment: I was incredibly underwhelmed by the iPad, it just seemed as if apple were trying to create a new market, and although it was a little good at most things it wasn't good enough in any area to cosider it a viable replacement for laptops, netbooks, ebook readers or phones.
The Playbook on the other hand has me genuinely excited. As someone who travels a fair bit I'm all about getting the maximum amount of functions in the most portable of devices. The playbook looks like it will deliver on all fronts, I may actually be able to ditch my laptop for those trips away from home and make this my device of choice.
We'll have to see if RIM clear out the wallet on this one but I for one will be saving for it now, I just hope it's all it promises to be.
Final verdict: If all goes as planned RIM will be bending the iPad over and taking it to brown town with this device and there definately won't be any cuddling afterwards.
Comment: "There's a 1GHz dual-core processor on-board, as well as 1GHz of RAM"
Didn't know RAM comes in GHz these days :P
