RIM BlackBerry PlayBook (2012)

 

The RIM BlackBerry PlayBook is finally a viable tablet computer, now that it includes native email support, but it still lags behind the competition in third-party apps.

Sharp, beautiful screen. Top-notch browser with full Flash video support. Wirelessly transfers files to and from computers on same network.

Far fewer third-party apps than the iPad, and the ones that exist aren't nearly as compelling. Doesn't sync with BES or support BlackBerry Messenger.

RIM BlackBerry PlayBook (OS 2.0, 2012 Update)

Strong, fast performance ; Gorgeous screen ; Low price ; Highly integrated e-mail and social-media apps ; Pleasant to use

Still no BBM or Enterprise Server support ; Android apps are hit-or-miss ; No memory-card slot
