Article: BlackBerry PlayBook and iPad Comparison - Web !
The PlayBook had 6 months to plan this out. You know Apple's next iPad will blow that crap out of the water.
And the youtube uploader's name is "BlackBerry"? Are you kidding... He only showed us what he wanted to. Let's see the app store!
Haha, delfim, you are going to have to say something today because once the true professionals come online and see this, they'll have lots to say to you!
Very good video I must say, good find.
QNX is gonna be amazing on a tablet and phone... can't wait
Smooth... Not a word from me Leave it up to the pros !!

seriously? the video was about the browsers on both platforms and you going to rebut that with something that isnt even being mentioned? you might as well be saying " i have nothing constructive to say against that but at least the sky is blue!!!" and for the record apps arent everything. Especially since several other companies are catching up in the apps dept.

Each platform has its flaws, and RIM didn't initially focus on their browser and it showed, but you get to see how RIM is making up for the lack of attention they've given their web browser over the years. I applaud that, it bodes well for furthering competition and future developments.
Flash might not be around in the future but its around right now, i could care less about getting something that will be fully function several years from now, if i get a smart device i need it to work with the stuff that's out right now, and many people feel this way. Its like what happened to the Vhs and Beta Max. Beta was in many ways the better platform but because so many people were using vhs, beta fell. ( some believe the porn industry had to do with it since they choose vhs as the main platform, but i digress) Unfortunately its not always which is the better that wins, its what the majority of people already use, and in this case flash still has a rather strong hold on the internet.
Open web standards are good for consumers and developers it means more avenues for creative people to create content on, without inconveniencing anyone right now, it makes the transition from old tech to new tech much smoother and less jarring for people.
As far as the playbook broswer I specifically like the speed on the rendering, i hate waiting for pages to load. whats the point of being on a fast connection if you still navigate just as slow as before? I hope they integrate the new browser on the BB's.

They will say its better than Jesus, and will claim Steve Jobs as the new lord and Saviour. It will still lack flash, and you wont be able to view tons of websites, but you will look hip in Starbucks with your little toy, telling the person next to you that you dont want to see real websites, that browsing the internet through apps is the real way to consume the internet.
Mr Delfim, Please be cautious!
The Apple gestapo will be looking for you for posting this propaganda.
Ah, yes......good ol' Apple vs. RIM debates, this time over tablet devices. Some things never change around here.
Let's just remember to keep it civil, guys.

...if that´s what it takes to see some "action" on Pinstack...you guy´s ain´t seen nutting yet !
Wait for the next episode !
srl, raton where are they ?
LOL. Very good thread Del. At least Apple will move FORWARD in updating and making the iPad better. RIM will have this one, and its stale OS for the next five years if their track record holds true.

^^ don't you start Glenn !
Meh. I still think the Hemroid, I mean Android tablet's better than the two. NOT!!!! You'll be crazy to pay for that disgusting thing and its plan and not even be able to use as a phone, why use it as a phone you might ask ummm if I'm paying for a plan I better be able to make calls from the darn thing. If not I'll just pay for a wireless card and pay monthly and be able to do all the things I want on my laptop and even plug it to a printer and print my own comments on these threads .
Now, that I'm done bashing that silly Android crap moving onto the bricktablet and the yuppyblet. I think apple should definitely get off their high horse about not allowing any adobe shyte and using security issues as an excuse and focus on other things. I'm so glad to see RIM finally working on things both the crapple tablet and the new junky android tablet both fail at and use it as their blueprint in order to avoid any issues and ranting from their future customers. I do hope they release a phone capable of doing all the things this tablet can do so that there is a true touchscreen phone. (storm) doesn't count. It was an epic fail. Let's be honest here. The size of this berry tablet looks big enough to fit my pocket . In summary, Android tablet you fail for teaming up with tmobile trying to bank on some money with their limited so called 4G network which doesn't even cover 1% of the nation and if it does. Show me a map lol. Second, apple get us adobe flash you anorexic, bullimic decrepit looking fossil Steve Jobs and quit your ego contest. Lastly, great review on this shenanigan. Love to see RIM finally mo ing forward. This will definitely propel them in the right direction. Just don't mess it up by making it a slider tablet
P.S. Big shout out to my homeboy Delfim

...you telling me ! I even sent him a PM. Mind you, he´s not yet convinced... or else he would be bombarding us with all the "hemroid" trivia he could muster. Remember the change over from BB to iPhone ? Geez, what a lesson in smartphone tactics !

Tablets as phones? Why? Maybe if you have an iphone, and can't make a call with it, cause you left your bumper at home, or your just too lazy to reach in your pocket to grab your phone.
Yes you are paying on a data plan, but thats just data not a voice plan. Just imagine how cool and impressive you will look while out in public, when your surfing the internet with your tablet in one hand, and you have your phone in the other, talking to friends about chicken recipes, the Beatles on itunes, and all that other cool crap real men talk about.
Ive come to the conclusion; that no matter what RIM, Android, Microsoft comes out with, it will never be enough for the Apple enthusiast.
