BlackBerry Playbook
« on: March 08, 2012, 01:14:24 am »

Decided it was time to try out a tablet. The BB PlayBook 16GB was on at $199 since Xmas and since the new OS came out... Well I figured can't go wrong. So I have it connected to my big screen TV and am getting used to the tiny on-screen keyboard.

Initial thoughts? I am impressed... No good for writing code of course... But definitely great for bringing a bunch of PDF files to a meeting and using it as a virtual day-book, and e-books and feeding a downloaded movie to the TV. Took a while to type this tho...
Do it now... later may not come.

I have a Nook Color running full Android 2.3 or 4.0 via the sdcard and I like it for browsing where a laptop is not usable ie the bed.
