    PlayBook and Autocorrect

    Advertisement



    Is it just me or does the PlayBook not have autocorrect and an awful copy and paste function? Please correct me if I'm wrong, but does the PlayBook come without autocorrect? or is mine faulty?

    I have tried all possible settings to no avail. I am more than annoyed at RIM for shipping a product this incomplete. Even the oldest Nokia out there was shipped with T9. RIM couldn't do better than this? What is more frustrating is that they have not even sorted it out til now

    Everything I've read indicates that it's not available yet. Hopefully in a new software update soon......

    It is quite shocking. I have had my PlayBook since it was launched in the US but have not used it more than 10 cos of this rubbish

    I also find it very frustrating, I am surprised that RIM did not have this out of the box! It just means I have to be very careful with spelling

    I will take the Playbook over the Ipad or Ipad2 for its true multi tasking, playing flash, swipe to close, ease of use, bb bridge, better camera, better battery life, and its not an Apple

    We have both the Ipad and Ipad2 in the household, so I get to play with both, the Ipad is great as a big Ipod but wont hold all my tunes When are they going to put a proper disk drive in it??

    Can't wait until version 2.0 for this feature! Too many typos right now.
