[Q] Blackberry Playbook?

Search This thread


Nov 23, 2011
So, I've acquired some money for my birthday. Best Buy has the Blackberry Playbook for $200US. I was just wondering if anyone owns this and what they think about it?

I realize the limitations with Email and BBM(?). I don't have a blackberry, and I can live without these services for a while.

So yeah, just wondering if this is worth it.

I have used it, it is a nice device. May consider looking at some of the android devices in the range since there are more apps for them. I believe Acer makes a $250 7" tablet. Which is pretty good. If you don't use any apps, then you will be fine with it. Just a suggestion, may want to just give it a look.

Please hit the thank button if I helped any!

I had a chance to play around with it in Best Buy. To be honest, it is one of the most well built tablets I've used. The display is fantastic, runs extremely smooth, and the multitasking is great. This is coming from an iPad 2 owner ;)
As stated above the downside would be limited apps.
