BlackBerry Playbook
 

It is without a doubt that this year is the year of tablet PC. Some of big names in mobile industry has entered the competitions; including Research in Motion; the Canadian-based company that is famous for their BlackBerry smartphones. The first RIM BlackBerry Tablet was announced as BlackBerry PlayBook; and here is the BlackBerry PlayBook review for you.

Design and Display Review

BlackBerry PlayBook weigh about 0.9 pounds, and unlike iPad 2 the BlackBerry Tablet is using 7 inch screen. It is obvious that RIM emphasizes on portability. The tablet has volume control, play and also power button at the top side. There are several people who are complaining about the placement, but I personally have no problem with them. It also have a bright and vivid screen with a nice contrast. It might not be as good as the Super AMOLED plus screen; but it still delivers great visual.

CPU Review

To keep the BlackBerry PlayBook running smoothly, RIM has decided to use a 1GHz Dual Core TI OMAP processor; and it is supported with 1GB of RAM. Needless to say, the RIM BlackBerry Tablet is a fast device. There are several options when it comes to internal storage. There are BlackBerry PlayBook 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB. The choice is up to you. Overall, the CPU performance is great; and we really think that it is one of the fastest tablet PC out there. Perhaps because it is supported by a good OS. But more of that later.

Office Usability

BlackBerry PlayBook market target is set at business man, therefore the tablet should have a reliable virtual keyboard. The device has a good and reliable virtual keyboard that can be used in landscape or portrait mode. There’s also copy and paste shortcuts available. We often get Adobe PDF files in our business, and with this gadget you can read them since RIM is cooperating with Adobe. Beside that, there’s also Adobe Flash for enjoying flash games available online.

Connectivity Review

BlackBerry PlayBook connectivity is one of a kind. There’s not many internet tablet that are offering 4G network these days (or at least there’s only a few of them at the moment). RIM has confirmed that they are going to release various versions; including WiFi, 3G, and 4G HSPA+ and also 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook. It is always nice to have so many options; so that you will be able to pick which version suits you and the available money.

Camera Review

Many other tablets are using 3 megapixel camera on the back, and standard 1.2 to 2 megapixel camera for video chat. However, the tablet uses a 5 megapixel camera on the back and 3 megapixel video chat camera. One more thing, unlike the big and wide 10 inch tablet; the 7 inch tablet’s camera can be used easily, and it can also produce great images and video. You can share the images or video to your family thanks to micro-HDMI and micro-USB ports.

OS review

BlackBerry PlayBook runs on BlackBerry Tablet OS and is supported with 1GB of RAM and 1GHz dual core processor. This new OS was developed by QNX, a famous company for their reliable softwares. The BlackBerry Tablet OS will allow you to have faster multimedia and video files handling, great graphics quality, and no lag whatsoever.

Of course, there are also built in support for email and the famous BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After using the PlayBook and its BlackBerry Tablet OS, it is clear that RIM is making an all round tablet that is powerful for business market and also fun for the common market. To end this BlackBerry PlayBook review, we once again said that the BlackBerry PlayBook is a solid device, and although the screen size might be a problem for some people, we have nothing to complain about
