I'm looking to get a playbook and at the price of $150 I don't see how I can go wrong. I basically want it for movies, especially the hdmi output. Also basically going to be used for web browsing and yahoo leagues. Anyone have experience with these units?
It doesn't do Netflix.
If that's okay with you, I know several people who like theirs. But I went to a Google Nexus instead, due to the Netflix support.
Ok, good to know, but netflix I have on our ps3 anyways, so it'd be more for putting movies onto from my computer for mobility.
I'm using one right now it's pretty sweet. Especially at 150. Also bb10 is supposed to come to the playbook would be pretty sick.
Thats kind of another thing i'm really interested in seeing how the new bb10 improves it. Count me in as someone who would love to see blackberry become a major player again. I mean new Ipad/Iphone/i(fill the blank) every 6 months outdating the previous one and all the imported tablets/phones, would be nice for a canadian company to have a decent share of the market.
I finally worked my way up to a nice 42" plasma and now they expect me to watch movies on tiny screens on hand held devices. Gotta love the marketing people.
I have a playbook, and it's great.
Does everything I want it to do- and they aren't ripping you off like the jamokes at Apple.
And as far as I'm concerned, the OS is better than Apple's, and it sounds fr, far better than my wife's iPad,
One can actually listen to music on the playbook without wincing.
Thanks, thats great to hear... they've done something right. Amazing what that apple hype train can do to people.
