5 Reasons For

Blackberry Has Good Reviews for Its Tablet Computers

OMAP4430 processor tablet computers built by Blackberry have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all tablet computers (not just OMAP4430 processor tablet computers) and found that Blackberry also has good ratings across its entire range.

Flash Storage Media

This tablet supports a Flash storage media, which is the most frequently supported storage media on similar spec tablets that have been available for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Multi-Touch Touch Technology

The multi-touch technology of this tablet computer is Multi-touch, which is the most frequently featured touch technology on tablets that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Front Camera Resolution (numeric)

The lowest front camera resolution (numeric) of tablet computers of a comparable spec and age to the Playbook is 0.3MP, the highest is 5MP, and the average front camera resolution (numeric) is 1.6MP. At 3 megapixels, the Playbook has a quite high front camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

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

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Not 3G

The Playbook is not 3G. Most of the other tablet computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Playbook are also not 3G.

Chart Edit

Not 4G

Like most of the other tablet computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Playbook, the Blackberry Playbook is not 4G.

Chart Edit

Very Small Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of only 7 inches, the Playbook has a quite small display diagonal compared to most of the other tablet computers of this age and spec. The display diagonals of similar spec tablets that were launched around the same time as the Playbook range from 5.5" to 16".

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 7" tablet computers currently available including the Blackberry Playbook[plb_2773092_price] which has better reviews.

Only 1024 X 600 Pixels Display Resolution

The biggest display resolution of the Playbook is 1024 x 600 pixels. That's 40% less display resolution than a 1280 x 800 pixels tablet, which is the most common display resolution. The worst display resolution of all tablet computers of a similar age and type to the Playbook is 800 x 400 pixels and the best is 3840 x 2560 pixels.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Frequency

Tablet computers that have been around for around the same time as the Playbook have processor frequencys of between 1GHz and 1,300GHz, and the average processor frequency is 11GHz. At only 1 gigahertz, the Blackberry Playbook has a quite slow processor frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that have been available for around the same time as the Playbook.

We compared this tablet to all the other 1GHz processor clock speed tablets and we think the Blackberry Playbook[plb_2773092_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this tablet computer processor frequency is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the HP 1012[plb_3369741_price] (1.1GHz) which also has a higher rating.

This tablet supports a 3.1 bluetooth version, whereas most tablet computers of a similar spec and age to it support a 4 bluetooth version. Tablets that have been available for more than a year bluetooth versions range from 4.1 BLE (worst) to 4.1 (best).

Other 5MP rear camera resolution tablet computers currently available which you might want to look at include the Apple iPad Mini[plb_2917739_price], or the Blackberry Playbook[plb_2773092_price] which has better reviews.

If this Blackberry tablet rear camera resolution (numeric) is too low for you then you might also want to consider the Lenovo ThinkPad 8[plb_2194249_price] (8MP).
