4 Reasons For

Blackberry Tablet Computers Have Good Reviews

This tablet supports a Flash storage medium, which is the most frequently supported storage medium on similar spec tablet computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite High Front Camera Resolution

At 3 megapixels, the Blackberry Playbook has a quite high front camera resolution compared to most of the other tablets of this spec and age. The average front camera resolution of tablets that are a comparable age to the Playbook is 1.6MP.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

This tablet computer has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most commonly found maximum video resolution on tablets of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Not 3G Compatible

Like most of the other similar spec tablets that have been around for more than a year, the Playbook is not 3G compatible.

If you would prefer a tablet that is 3G compatible then you might also want to look at the 101b, or the 55 both from Archos or the Huawei MediaPad T1 7.0.

Not 4G Compatible

Like most of the other tablets that have been around for a comparable time to the Playbook, the Blackberry Playbook is not 4G compatible.

Tablets which are 4G compatible that might also be worth looking at include the Lenovo Tab 2 A8-50.

Very Small Screen Size

The screen sizes of tablets of this age and spec range from 5" to 14", and the average screen size is 9.1". The Playbook has a fairly small screen size (only 7 inches) compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been available for around the same time as the Playbook.

If you would prefer a larger screen size then you might also want to look at the Lenovo Tab 2 A8-50 (8" and cheaper), the Acer Iconia Tab 10 B3-A20 (10.1" and cheaper), or the Archos 101b (10.1" and cheaper).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only 1024 X 600 Pixels Display Resolution

The biggest display resolution of the Blackberry Playbook is 1024 x 600 pixels. That's 40% less display resolution than a 1280 x 800 pixels tablet, which is the most frequently found display resolution. Tablet computers that have been available for more than a year display resolutions range from 800 x 400 pixels to 2732 x 2048 pixels.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The Playbook has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 1 gigahertz) amongst tablet computers of this age. Across all the tablets of a similar age and type to the Playbook the processor clock speeds range from 0.9GHz to 1,300GHz.

If this tablet processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Huawei MediaPad T1 7.0 (1.2GHz), the Archos 55 (1.2GHz), or the Lenovo Tab 2 A8-50 (1.3GHz) which is also cheaper.

Only 3.1 Bluetooth Version

The Playbook supports a 3.1 Bluetooth version which is newer than most similar spec tablet computers that have been available for more than a year. Most tablets that have been around for a comparable time to it support a 4 Bluetooth version. Tablet computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Playbook Bluetooth versions range from 4.1 BLE to 4.1.

4 Other reasons to consider the Blackberry Playbook

Chart Edit

Average Rear Camera Resolution

At 5 megapixels, the Playbook has a pretty standard rear camera resolution compared to most of the other tablets of a comparable spec and age to the Playbook.

If this Blackberry tablet computer rear camera resolution is not high enough for you then you might also want to consider the Archos 55 (13MP) which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Two Processor Cores

The Blackberry Playbook is a two processor core tablet which is average compared to the other 113 tablet computers of a comparable age and type to the Playbook that we have assessed the number of processor cores of.

If this Blackberry tablet computer has too few processor cores then you might also want to consider the Huawei MediaPad T1 7.0 (4 processor cores), or the Archos 55 (4 processor cores) which is also cheaper.
