I decided that it was time for me to review the blackberry playbook. Why? Well, why not? Everyone under the sun review everything under the sun… What’s one more review, eh ;)? Anyway I’ve had the playbook for some time now and recently upgraded it to 2.0… I am a blackberry fanboy but I will do my best to ‘call it like it is’. In short, I love it! Well, that’s my review. Hope u liked it! lol…
I kid, I kid. The first thing I love about it, is in fact, its form factor. This nonsense about a 7inch not being big enough, is just that; nonsense. How can u watch a movie on it, people ask. Well, u can and comfortably. It is light, it fits anywhere. I can hold it in one hand for long periods of time without feeling any type of fatigue or strain. I coach a soccer team and use it not just for the white board but to show videos and to make/review game notes, lineups and to prepare my practice sessions, etc. The 7inch format is convenient and the fact that other 7inch tablets are making their way to the market is proof that there is a market for it.
The playbook is also pretty thin. I didn’t really realize how much until recently. I know this sounds weird but let me explain. When I first got the PB, I quickly encased it in a leather case to protect it. I never really spent time with it outside the case… Anyway every time I watched a video on the PlayBook, I would always wonder why it looked so thin ;)… So yesterday I finally decided to remove it from the case and wowza, it’s pretty awesome thin! Lol. I love it. I did not give it enough of a chance outside the case. Just take a look at the photos to see the difference between the playbook and the case! I won’t get rid of the case as it’s convenient to use when watching a movie but for the most part I will handle the playbook au naturel! Lol.
Stayed tuned for my follow up post on the playbook… I wrote this one on my bold 9900… The second half will be written from … Wait for it… My playbook! 🙂
