BlackBerry PlayBook Review: A Short Video

By  |  10 Comments

Here’s a quick video look at the BlackBerry PlayBook. The web browser baked into the PlayBook is pretty nice and responsive. The $499 BlackBerry tablet just went on sale and RIM sent one over for review.

In this video you can see that the PlayBook does indeed display GottaBeMobile.com very well. If I scroll super quickly, which is not normal use, then blank tiles do show up for a couple of seconds before the page renders properly. Most users won’t notice this a bit.

I can’t get over how good the PlayBook’s display looks. I’ll be posting a longer video review later today and try and show that off. You can read more about my first impressions of the BlackBerry Play book here.

Xavier Lanier is the publisher of Gotta Be Mobile and a photographer. He uses too many devices to count, but his current favorites are the iPhone 5s, HTC One, Nikon D800 and Sony RX 100M II. You can follow him on Twitter and Google+.

    I am also really liking the BB PB hardware. Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse works great on the PB. I did a quick video. http://www.pocketables.net/2011/04/using-blackberry-playbook-with-bluetooth-keyboard-and-mouse.html

    I bought one today, more than two months after this article and still no
    email application available. I’m pretty disappointed, after all that’s
    what made RIM what they are.
