BlackBerry PlayBook Full Review: it grows on you after a week
      #40541 - 04/27/11 06:38 PM

Tablets are the hot commodity for 2011, and RIM has jumped into the game with the BlackBerry PlayBook. This attractive 7" tablet runs their new QNX-powered OS with UI inspirations from The Astonishing Tribe whom RIM bought. Hardware design and materials are top notch, the touch screen is among the best in tablets and the user experience is delightful even if ripped off from webOS. But apps are a weak point on this brand new platform, and software junkies won't be thrilled. The PlayBook has WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth and a GPS that works with Bing Maps. You can use your smartphone's WiFi tethering to get online as well or tether to a BlackBerry smartphone using BlackBerry Bridge. This release version tablet leaves us with mixed feelings, but we can't seem to put it down.
