Playbook Dual Core Review – 64GB PlayBook Dual Core 1GHz Tablet
I was actually on the edge where I consider to purchase Playbook dual core or not.
My husband has an iPad and an iPhone, so he can share its apps, and so forth. And I’ve always had Blackberry device, so I really was interested when this Playbook dual core was released.
At first, I was of course iffy as to how good it’d perform, and if I could actually share my OS 6.0+ phone. I also thought that the apps is less that Apple or Android’s.
So I ordered Playbook dual core (64GB PlayBook Dual Core 1GHz Tablet) for $699.00 here together with its screen protector, and since it arrived, it has been my best constant companion.
This unit is definitely well designed and built, it is really sturdy, and what I like, it does not have odd sounds while I am holding or even pressing against it. It is really nice to have it in your hands, because its height is less than an inch, and it is really sleek, it fits nicely anywhere, a small or bigger pocket or even bag.
It has two intregated High resolution cameras, back and front which I can use to take great pictures, or HD video. (I have tried iPad 2’s camera, I got blurry pictures, and this tablet made better pictures quality).
By using the Video Chat app, that was released about last month, you can now do video conference which is like in iPad’s FaceTime camera.
Typing in this unit is great, you can either hold it horizontally and vertically, and both work comfortable. When I held it vertically, I have its keyboard more accessible because I could type with my two fingers.
And when I held it horizontally, it offers me a nice keyboard’s size which I can use to type without any issues, typing in this device is like typing on the same exact ways with typing on any BlackBerry devices.
When I used this unit for the first time, I was immediately amazed by the touch-screen which is really super responsive, and its speedy 1GHZ Cortex A9 dual core processor made great performance, for instance I could easily switch through screens without any lag. I was browsing on the Internet and switched a lot between my browser and Facebook app.
Playbook Dual Core vs iPad 2
