First of all the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet look very nice, isn’t it? It’s designed in the way of business chic like BlackBerry smartphones done.
But the PlayBook’s software suffers from several missteps and oversights, especially in the drought of useful apps — the very things that have made tablets such a hit — and the lackluster performance of Adobe’s Flash player.
At a svelte 7.6 inches by 5.1 inches, the PlayBook is about the size of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab, and considerably smaller than the Motorola Xoom and Apple iPad 2. That may prove bothersome if you prefer watching videos and gaming on a larger screen. But in a trade-off for the small screen size, the PlayBook makes gains in portability.
