Blackberry Playbook a Great Business Tool

Blackberry Playbook tabletRIM’s long awaited Blackberry Playbook has finally hit our shelves and it was definitely worth the wait. If you are Blackberry fan, you will surely want to check out this tablet. It looks good, it feels good and if you are in a position where presentations are essential to closing the deal, you need this device.

Whether you are presenting in PowerPoint, pictures or pdf, moving from page to page or app to app is as easy as swiping your finger across the screen. The battery life is a little less than its competitors, but on the plus side it comes with Flash Player 10.1.

The downsides are minor if you are looking for an executive style Tablet and really love your Blackberry. It doesn’t have an external USB port, the music app is a little quirky, and the number of general apps is pretty limited.

However, on the plus side; it’s very intuitive, it pairs well with your Blackberry and comes with some great business tools like Adobe reader and the Documents to Go suite. Image quality is great, and the Webkit browser is decent- YouTube and Flash games videos play virtually stutter free. The camera is average, but takes good pictures and very suitable for most shots.

One of the main features of the Playbook, that sets it apart from other tablets, is the ability to connect it to your Blackberry device. Once you download the Blackberry Bridge software from Blackberry’s App World, your Playbook works as an extension of your phone. You get access to your email, calendar, contacts, memo pad and tasks- now on the large tablet display. Depending on your wireless provider, you can even browse the web using your existing Blackberry Smartphone’s data plan.

If you are looking for a big brother to your Blackberry handset, this tablet is what you need. RIM is constantly updating apps and tweaking the system. If you are looking for the WOW factor, you may consider checking out the other tablets on the market.
