Overall: This is my second tablet after having an iPad2. So it is kind of a comparative review Playbook 16GB vs iPad2 16 GB wifi only model both.nnWhy you should buy Playbooknn1. Price, Price, Price. It is more than 50% cheap than iPad 2 (if we consider the latest discount that is going on).n2. OS is very good. Yes I like it more than iOS. The panel is also touch sensitive and panel & screen touch combination will create an intuitive os experience.n3. Multitasking is a joy to use in playbook. Simply superb. Even iPad and android tablet can't give you that experience.n4. It is blackberry. So better brand value, proper service, update etc are here than some cheap android tablet.n5. Hardware configuration is good. Screen resolution overall finish etc are one of the best.n6. It has implemented best speaker in a tablet. You can enjoy the movie, music without headphone. It is loud enough to enjoy in a group.n7. Android apps compatibility with the next OS update.n8. Browser supports Flash.n9. You can use this as a USB drive and drag-n-drop your files to it.n10. All favorite SD/HD movie format supports by the native player without any performance lag.nnWhy you should NOT buy Playbooknn1. Biggest let down is non availability of apps in the market. Though with the next OS update you will get android application compatibility but keep in mind that it will not be a 100% compatibility. So lot of world's fav application you can't enjoy here.n2. No proper email client is available till now for blackberry.n3. Updating Blackberry for the first time is a huge task. Server is overloaded always when they issue a new OS update. Without that update you can't use the blackberry. It took 4 days for me to update blackberry to the latest OS.n4. Screen is 7". My personal opinion is 10" screen is always better to use as tablet.n5. Little bit heavy considering its size. Feel heavier than my iPad2.n10. Playbook is not a success for Blackberry. So not sure about its future. Anytime it may be dropped.n11. We all know future mobile OS is android. So investing in a non android tablet may not be a good idea currently.nnnNow service from Flipkart.nI will not say it is bad but found it is not good when there is a problem with the delivery/stock. I ordered 32GB but as they didn't have the stock for 32GB they called me and confirmed that 16GB will be available and extra money will be refunded as cash refund. But ultimately they refunded the amount to my wallet not as cash refund. My idea was flipkart is better than any other e-Shops but I proved wrong.
