  • It can play flash, and it’s beautiful. I love all my mac products, but I would buy the playbook over the ipad any day of the week.

    Go RIM!

  • This is definitely going to be an iPad killer.
    The price is low enough to be called phenomenal and the specs are massive comparing.
    [url=http://freeblackberryplaybook.co]Free BlackBerry PlayBook[/url] will give you one for free as well if you want 🙂

  • This is not the iPad killer, why you ask? Apple innovates and they have set an industry standard that everybody else has to follow to stay in the market. There is no real big innovation here, its simply a cheaper iPad with a camera. Yes it may take some sales from Apple but products and companies that ‘follow’ will never kill off another brands products.
    @Mark: That site simply looks like a scam to get peoples emails and contact details. Dont fall for it or pass it on.

  • If one of these damn Tablets can Run MS Office (at least run Full Function Excel, Word, and PP) Then I am sold. Without those, it’s just another Social Networking Device. Got My Droid X for that. Also a Tablet version adobe illustrator and photoshop would be nice too. Then the device would actually be a useful tool.

    D says:
  • I agree about MS Office…or at least documents to go like the blackberry phones…
