BlackBerry PlayBook Gets Two Hands on Reviews!


With CES starting tomorrow we already have some good news from RIM. They are finally letting reviewers touch the BlackBerry PlayBook. I will be landing in Vegas for the show tomorrow and from what I am reading RIM is going to be letting people actually play with the device! Both CrackBerry and Gizmodo got off a nice first impression review of the BlackBerry PlayBook. Kevin did a much more in depth version repeating and confirming much of what we already know about the PlayBook but squeezing out some more juicy details like a planned 8 hour use battery life goal.

Check out both reviews at the links below:

Let us know if you spot anything new in either review. Its nice to see somebody other than Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie demo the PlayBook. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these tomorrow!

Oh and if you were wondering we still have no idea when exactly RIM is launching the PlayBook other than Q1 2011 AKA anytime now.

  3. So awesome! :)

  4. I’m surprised Gizmodo gave it a halfway decent review.

  5. Wow. Just watched the video review from CB and the Sr. Marketing guy. ALMOST PEED MY PANTS! lol. I want one. So go ahead and earmark me for the January Playbook winner. All will be well then!

  6. Engadget has a preview up now too.

    Regarding performance, I find this to be really good news even at this point of development and unknown release date:
    “we weren’t able to hit the limit of the machine despite running a 1080p video, a realtime game of Quake III, a song in the music player, and a photo slideshow”

  7. Hi Ronen,

    I’m looking forward to seeing you at the BlackBerry booth today for your hands-on experience with the PlayBook. Stay tuned for more videos showcasing upcoming apps for BlackBerry PlayBook and feature demonstrations including BlackBerry Bridge and the dual-HD front and rear facing cameras.

    See you at the booth, South Hall 30320!

    Alex from RIM
