6 Reasons For

Good Brand

Tablet computers manufactured by Blackberry have an average rating of 77 out of 100, which is in the top 42% of all tablet brands that we have looked at.

Flash Storage Medium

This tablet computer supports a Flash storage medium, which is typical of many tablets that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Fairly Large Internal Storage Capacity

The Playbook has a quite large internal storage capacity (64 gigabytes) compared to most of the other tablet computers of a similar type and age to the Playbook. The internal storage capacity of tablet computers that were released more than two years ago range from 0.25GB to 260GB, and the average internal storage capacity is 19GB.

Chart Edit

Very High Second Camera Resolution

When compared to other tablet computers of a similar type and age to the Playbook, the second camera resolution of the Playbook of 3 megapixels is one of the highest. The lowest second camera resolution of tablet computers of this age and type is 0.3MP and the highest is 3MP.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

This tablet has a Flash storage medium, which is typical of many similar spec tablet computers that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Short

Across all the tablets of this spec and age the heights range from 0.4mm to 650mm, and the average height is 140mm. The Blackberry Playbook is one of the shorter tablet computers that are a similar age to the Playbook (only 10 millimeters) amongst tablet computers of this age.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Not 3G Compatible

Like most of the other tablets of a comparable age and type to the Playbook, the Playbook is not 3G compatible.

Chart Edit

Not 4G Compatible

Most comparable spec tablet computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Playbook are not 4G compatible. The Playbook is no exception to this as it too is not 4G compatible.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The slowest processor clock speed of tablet computers of this type and age is 1GHz and the fastest is 2.3GHz. When compared to other tablet computers that were released more than two years ago, the Playbook's processor clock speed of only 1 gigahertz is one of the slowest.

If this tablet processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7[plb_2569407_price] (1.5GHz) which also has a higher rating.

Fairly Thick

At 130 millimeters, the Playbook has a fairly thick thickness compared to most of the other tablets of this type and age. The thicknesses of comparable spec tablet computers that have been available for around the same time as the Playbook range from 4mm to 280mm.

3 Other reasons to consider the Blackberry Playbook

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this tablet was released.

Two Processor Cores

The Playbook has two processor cores. That's average compared to the other 182 tablets of a similar age and spec to the Playbook that we have assessed the number of processor cores of.

If this tablet has too few processor cores then you might want to look at the Samsung SM-T800 Galaxy Tab S[plb_2478100_price] (4 processor cores and cheaper) or the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7[plb_2569407_price] (4 processor cores and higher rated).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Screen Size

With a screen size of 7 inches, the Playbook has a relatively average screen size compared to most of the other tablet computers of a similar type and age to the Playbook.

If you would prefer a tablet with a larger screen size then you might also want to consider the Samsung SM-T800 Galaxy Tab S[plb_2478100_price] (10.5" and cheaper).
