I just want to preface my Conclusion/Summary: it is long. I only posted the first paragraph as I did a three paragraph conclusion, which is the longest I have written. Overall, the RIM PlayBook performed very well and is a good tablet depending on what type of buyer you are. Price is also right at $499. What are the some of the major positives: 1) excellent quality build; 2) WiFi File Sharing; 3) excellent screen quality; 4) plays most video formats; 5) excellent HD video output (via HDMI); 6) excellent front speakers; 7) ability to bridge or connect with a BlackBerry phone; 8) decent battery life; and last but probably the best feature is its multitasking capabilities. The ability to easily run multiple apps at once, easily switch from app to app and close specific open apps is one area where Android & Apple's iOS cannot compete. HP's webOS has similar capabilities so we definitely will compare those. Now some of the negatives: 1) no file manager built-in (Android 3.0 also has this issue); 2) power button is way too small; 3) GPS is useless since Bing Maps require WiFi connection; 4) poor app selections and little US-market news apps; 5) no folders for apps; 6) cannot charge PlayBook if turned off; 7) IT folks can disable the Bridge app which defeats one of PlayBook's main purposes; 8) no ability to add memory (following iPad's footstep here?) and most importantly 9) no native email client, calendar or task list. The PlayBook is a decent first attempt in RIM introducing their first tablet. To continue reading the Conclusion or to read the full review, click here.
