NEW FEATURE: Sassy Woman & Chic Technology! The New BLACKBERRY PLAYBOOK 201118 Comments

I’ve been considering this great post for a while now but I have to admit I held back because like most of us it’s way to tempting to stereotype, and for a second I was thinking does your typical female care about up and coming contemporary technology? Hell yes we do! So apologies all for the fleeting false assumption, besides we’d all love an iPad or a touch screen laptop given the chance, right? Besides what’s any of these gadgets got to do with gender? SO, I shall be bringing you all weekly updates on the latest, greatest and sassy gadgets out there.

I myself am a fan and a bit of a ‘geek’ when it comes to most new snazzy gadgets and I just can’t get enough of them. The only thing of course that holds me back is of course the cost and the fact that as soon as you rip open the package and plug you new ‘toy’ in, they re-release a faster, sassier version and costs more…apple has got to be the worst ever for this!

So, in protest of Apple and their clever money-making antics, this week I bring to you the alternative. The New ‘Black Berry PlayBook’. You may have heard of the new Blackberry gadget as the demo was released on a few blog sites during the first week of December 2010.

I was giddy with glee to check this one out because you can’t fault blackberry technology…however the plain fact is the original idea is always going to be the best and this to me is an obvious version of the apple iPad which may not cut it.  It may be another case of ‘monkey see, monkey do!’. Other Tablets include the Dell Streak and the Samsung Galaxy Tab so how does the playbook fair in comparison.

Dell Streak Tablet

Samsung Galaxy Tab

I’m tempted to review the playbook based on a direct comparison with the iPad as all the technology blog sites are doing but I prefer to talk about this one in isolation if I may (although where necessary a few comparison are unavoidable).

On first sight I’m thinking it doesn’t look as portable as you’d expect a tablet to be. However the 7-inch screen (the ipad is 9.7inches)  makes it slightly more handy. The BlackBerry PlayBook has the most memory out of all the current tablets out there and offers a full gigabyte and in the memory department,

As for the camera, the BlackBerry PlayBook ups the stakes with a 3MegaPixal front facing and a 4MegaPixal rear facing camera with HD video recording. All of which is currently unavailable on the iPad ( I say currently as it is very more than likely the iPad will be re-launched again with the camera suddenly added on).

The PROPOSED PRICES are said be to as follows: 8GB – $399(£252); 16GB -$499 (£315); 32GB – $599 (£379).

There is no current specific release date however it’s rumoured to be launched early 2011 with later release dates in the uk.

Tell us all what you think! Oh and er careful the male members of your family don’t catch you spying this vid. They may think you’re dropping hints about their xmas present….HA! they wish ;-)

    Well it does seem like there are some features on the blackberry playbook that are better than the ipad like the camera and it looks like it will be cheaper. I’m not sure though. I think I would still want a iPad instead though!

    Ok, well yes it is smaller and all that plus yes it has the camera but am sorry it’s all about the iPad! Though I get what you are saying about Apple re-releasing products with updated features. I heard there is an iPad 2 coming out next summer so I guess that one will have the camera that is currently missing. When my BF is getting an iPad soon and I intend to sneak of with it whenever he aint lookin’. Great Post sassy I like it…keep em comin am a bit of a geek tech too lol :-D
