The BlackBerry Playbook is the new tablet computer from Research in Motion (RIM). With its high-end specs and features, and timeless design, it`s a strong attempt by BlackBerry to break into the lucrative tablet market...
Verdict: The 7-inch form factor is perfect for RIM fans, while the design, build and OS are very good. However, sadly, this isnu2019t the tablet to break the Apple stranglehold. Thereu2019s no 3G option presently, the screen falls a little short and there jus...
(UPDATE: Please read our review of BlackBerry PlayBook’s 2.0 software update. It adds email, calendar, and some other features that we were critical of in this review.) Although RIM only released the BlackBerry PlayBook last week, it felt like everyone in the tech community wrote it off as dead before it even hit shelves. A year ago, many reviewers wrote off the iPad as well. We’re not saying that the PlayBook will make a dent against the...
Pros: Great design and sharp screen,Unique OS,Fun, intuitive gestures,Android, Java app support coming,Great keyboard,Best in class browser,
Cons: Launch apps plentiful, but lacking quality,Screen size may be too small for some,BlackBerry Bridge has limitations,No native email, calendar apps,

Pros: 1080p HD video playback, Fast dual-core processor, Bright screen, Super cheap,
Cons: Too few apps, Small screen, Clunky interface, Weak battery,
Verdict: A strong choice for those that like email and web browsing on the go - but there are better options out there....
Until today, the consumer tablet market has been defined by the battle between iPad and Android. Appleâ€™s best-selling slate has set expectations for mobile utility and usability, managing to persuade users that â€“ despite years of Microsoft Tablet PC promotion â€“ the company pretty much invented the tablet segment. Googleâ€™s Honeycomb (review) has launched its offensive against the iPad titan, and now itâ€™s the turn...
We`re all too familiar with Android tablets and the iPad so when we were introduced to the BlackBerry Playbook with its own mobile operating system, we paused for a while to re-think the UI, navigation and over-all usability. Read our full review of......
Verdict: is $499 for the 16GB model (itu2019s Php22k in Singapore so Iu2019m guessing Php25k to Php27k here) and goes up to $699 for the 64GB variant....
