Re: BlackBerry PlayBook or Apple iPad

if you like pressing buttons get an ipad

 

if you dont like pressing buttons get a Playbook

 

or even better get a Z30 which can act like a tablet and yet also be a phone

Re: BlackBerry PlayBook or Apple iPad

I don't think there is something wrong in asking this and I don't know about the iPad and Playbook much so asked which one should I get and I have written what I want to do on it - Sir JSanders do you recommend which Tablet ( iPad or Playbook ) is better for gaming ?

Re: BlackBerry PlayBook or Apple iPad

GET AN IPad !!!!!!!!!!!

 

I have a Playbook and even though it does things ok, the product is going nowhere so get an Ipad and save yourself the grief.

Re: BlackBerry PlayBook or Apple iPad

I find mine Sluggish in everything it does, has limited Apps and in the end i just use it as a secure device to carry a spare set of documents around in case I need them and to watch a film if I am on the train. Dont get me wrong when i say there is nothing bad with the playbook but it's old, isn't really supported by BB any more and the galaxy tab and Ipad are quicker and give you more mainstream business type apps.  It's just a shame the latest OS10 upgrade for the Z10 won't run on it that might have given it a bit more life.
