Throw the (Blackberry) Playbook Out

The long awaited and much anticipated Blackberry Playbook has been out in the market for almost 2 months now.  Not surprisingly it has not moved the needle of excitement at all.  While being built on decent hardware and having a few nice features, this device will likely gain little traction in the tablet market.  Requiring an existing Blackberry phone device to connect to email, contacts and calendars this device will probably only see use in the corporate markets.  Even then, corporate users are likely to continue purchasing Apple and Google tablets given the large number of Apps available for those platforms and the dearth of BlackBerry compatible Apps.  If you are in the market for a new tablet, this review will help you decide.  Otherwise, the key takeaway from this article is that the Playbook is not worth the hardware it is built on.
