Its a wonderful tablet and a raw deal at the price!!
1 August, 2013
I am a blackberry fan. Have been one since the first pink (!) pearl that I bought from Finland. It is the sturdiest and most reliable and dependable brand; and the playbook with OS 2.0 more than lives up to its brand value. What more can I say. It is fast, easy to set-up, breeze to work on and smooth sailing applications. Yes, I know the common grouse is lack of applications -- but I don't feel the need for hundreds and thousands to choose from. I need the book for business and entertainment and it is bang on. Got all the apps I needed from appworld and its good to go. We now share the tablet as a family and it meets everyone's needs perfectly. I waited and waited to get a tablet -- and I don't regret this first one at a mere 11k -- especially considering the original launch price of about 36-45K). You can't get a better deal than that.
Now,to a bit of a warning -- this tablet MUST be kept charged and do not let it fall below 10% as the procedure for 'waking' up the dead battery is quite a pain, or so I hear from the net reviews. I haven't let it fall below 50% -- no big deal managing that - given that it has awesome battery backup. Just thought I should give a heads-up on this point. Also, for some strange reason, amazon does not want to make a kindle app for the playbook. So we are left with sideloading the android version. I wish something could work out on that part.
Also to note: I am very happy with the vendor lalajionline.com. He did a great job of packing and sold a brand new original piece for a fantastic price, and prompt shipping. I was worried that I might be cheated at that discounted rate, but not so. Great vendor -- will definitely deal again. Thanks for a pleasant shopping experience.
