PlayBook users and owners: after using the PlayBook what do you think of the 7" screen size?

I'm considering the BB tablet but not sure if I will fully adjust to the screen size. Does it ever get annoying? Or is it okay after a while?

Like the Ad for Amex: "Don't leave home with it".
Warning... once you use it you'll likely stop using your laptop.
Forget the 10" tablets the PB is all you need.
But don't take my word for it. Go try it out at the store.
At the current sale price it's a steal.

screen is ok... crappy apps and other non transparency issues would need to be considered

Size is fine, agree need better apps. like quick office or a better office suite than doc to go and sheets to go. adobe pdf reader.

Re: PlayBook users and owners: after using the PlayBook what do you think of the 7" screen size?

agreed. screen size was actually a buying feature for me.
lack of any quality app ( ie netflix and skype) is my biggest dissapointment. i actually am on the (lack of) app site almost every day and have yet to see any of these shareware quality apps that are rediculously over priced, that have actually peaked my interest.

i woukd for sure wait at least untill a few months after the os upgrade
that way you'll know what you are getting rather than hoping on some magical update.
also there are rumours of them starting to sell a better version of this in the near future.

spellcheck wiuld be nice as well. i can spell but find i use this thing so infrequently i havent become accustomed to the keyboard

The size is always a tradeoff, but the Playbook seems to be as close to the perfect form factor for a mobile computer I've used so far.

I use mine for hours and have no issues or eye strain. The size is portable enough to take just about anywhere. Perfect!
