"Cheaper then iPad/iPad2 but not as good..."2.0 starson by RegisteredUser999
Pros: Graphics, Flash support, Blackberry Bridge, Mobile HotSpot, and Enterprise integration.
Cons: Not enough free apps, touch screen and accelerometer not as responsive as iPad/iPad2/iPhone...
Summary: I've checked with Starbucks, local public transit, Real Estate boards and they all say the same thing...they will not build app for Blackberry because there is no market. You are better off with iPhone/iPad instead.Well... after 6 months of playing this Playbook... thought I update my review on it.
Blackberry needs to bring put in more effort to bring on board all the businesses and developers to make more Blackberry pps to make the Playbook marketable.
Business Tools is a poor excuse. iPhones are not just toys, it is a business tool as well. Government, military, and local police are dropping Blackberry for iPhone. Doesn't take a rocket scientest to know that what works and wat doesn't.
RIM needs new management and a new team of App developers within RIM to make the apps and new classes to make the App do more to compete with Apple... Otherwise, RIM might as well join Nortel and Kodak's fate...which is Chapter 11.

If you are into video chatting and SIP calling... my recommendation, stay the HELL AWAY from Blackberry Playbook.
If I had a choose between iPad 1/2/3, Asus Transformer Pad TF300 or the Blackberry Playbook, I'd choose Asus Transformer Pad TF300 because I can do more video chats.
