Default Re: Playbook vs 'The New' iPad

I have had a PlayBook since it came out. Wonderful device. My kids both have PlayBooks for a year now too. Just bought one for my Mother in Law too. Video chat is great on it.

It did have a slow start but so did every other new device out there. Bridge is great, dont need native support and If I do it is there with out the need for a BES server.

I use standard USB cables to connect to my accessories that I have owned for 3 years prior. HDMI out with out the need for an adapter thing that costs more.

I now have plenty of games and tons more coming. Andriod is losing developers fast and many are running to BB10. App world has grown a lot and is getting more content.

I tried a xoom, encrible 2 and I dont get andriod interface.

ithings are boring and suck to use. press button for this and that. I grew tired of pressing that button in less than 2 weeks and was happy to have my BlackJack back.

Ipad has a bigger screen, I looked at one at AT&T store and held it. yes it is heavy and as I looked at the sides, it slipped out of my hands onto the counter corner which cracked the screen. damn that thing is slippery! AT&T guy said not to worry about it and this was like the 20th one that was dropped and broken in the store. That made me think I would be dropping it at home quickly and I despise the front button for all actions.

I have a pair of Torches for my kids to play with on wifi to remote contol their playbooks with. My son really loves showing off his playbook to friends and I have not seen one kids not ask their parent for one.

My kids were happy to sell their ipod touch and use the money for apps on BlackBerry Playbook.
