It is pocketable and it is light enough and it has a good quality digital photo frames, the glassware is touch-sensitive from edge to edge. With a 1GHz dual-core processor, 16GB of onboard storage, Wi-Fi and a 5Mp camera, the BlackBerry PlayBook has an impressive hardware line-up. A second, 2Mp camera, acts as a webcam and can be used for video chat. The camera is fine, but the very nature of this being a slab of electronics means it’s not exactly a precision instrument. The video player is more impressive: the PlayBook supports 1080p playback and the resolution is tight. The Playbook comes with a smart but fixed territory mains adaptor.
Usability and navigation
The PlayBook runs a bespoke QNX operating system known as the BlackBerry Tablet OS. If a user wants to click on an option such as Pictures or Music and there are multiple items in the library, the PlayBook pops up a trio of options that sits above but doesn’t entirely obscure the main menu. A user can drag backwards through screens and items that he/she has browsed, but also across different apps.
The PlayBook also has some quality graphics hardware under the hood and this comes into its own when playing games. Using the drag and scroll method, a user can peer at an object from any angle and zoom in for a close-up.
Setting up the PlayBook when a user first unpacks, it involves logging on to an available Wi-Fi network and then setting up a BlackBerry account. A user uses the PlayBook as a larger and more practical screen for watching videos, surfing the web and so on. The screen crams in 1,024×600 pixels into its 7in display and there’s support for both HTML5 and for Adobe Flash 10.1.
A user can use the tablet perfectly well without having to tether or otherwise be linked to a phone. Unlike, say, the nameless dock for the Motorola Atrix Android smartphone, the PlayBook is a compelling interactive communication terminal in its own right.
