Default Slow video streaming compared to iPad

Please Login to Remove!

Hi

I have both a playbook and an ipad2. Streaming video from netflix on the playbook is very slow compared to iPad. I'm disappointed as one of the selling features of the playbook is the ability to play android apps.

I've found that android apps are flakey on the playbook and so are some of the playbook specific apps. I'm running the latest v2 OS. I do not experience these issues with the iPad.

The problem I have is that I bought 2 32gb playbook a on sale for my teenage daughters for Xmas. My youngest has tried my playbook and hates it.

Can anyone point me to some sites or chats that address the issues?

Thanks

Teenagers will not be impressed with a PlayBook. Return them and buy the iPads. You will save a great deal of grief.

Just sayin'.....

I have 3 in my family and know 45+ users with them that are happy.

Yes some android apps wil bug out once in a while and they do similar on droids.

QNX apps rarely crash on me but like anything electronic stuff happens.

You should see the itunes and ipad issues we have here at the office. they need constant reboots.
