BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet Celebrates its First Birthday!

Ronen Halevy and Mike Lazaridis PlayBook Demo

It is hard to believe it has been a year since RIM launched the BlackBerry PlayBook right before BlackBerry World. Now a year later we know that a refresh is soon upon us with improvements like a 1.5Ghz processor and LTE. Still the PlayBook has come a far way and is really laying the groundwork for BlackBerry 10. I am really enjoying the improvements RIM has made in PlayBook OS 2.0 but what I am really waiting for is when RIM brings it all together with BlackBerry 10. We will start seeing this shortly with Cascades and other developments until we get the features and APIs necessary for SuperApps.

Congrats to the RIM team and we hope the PlayBook’s second birthday will be when it truly shines!

PS: Thanks to everyone who reminded us about the launch day. That picture above is actually from the PlayBook launch party.

  1. Ronen do you have that picture framed at home lol?

  2. Happy birthday Playbook. Hoping for some new hardware and a better year 2!

  3. Although the Playbook like all RIM products can lead to frustration. I use my PB constantly, and I still think the size is superior to larger tablets. I was disappointed to hear the Win 8 tablets are likely to be 10 inches, 7 is much more portable and great for reading.

    HBD Playbook, I recall one year ago as I got mine on day one. The first from staples was from the batch that didn’t work. After 2 hours of frustration and RIM support I took it back and got one from Office Depot. Happy!

  4. Absolutely love mine. From the moment it hit, it’s gotten better and better. Bridge is the best!

  5. Happy birthday PlayBook. A great tablet, that is getting better and better!
