It was over a year ago now that we first heard about RIM’s plans to release a 3G PlayBook, but it looks like it is finally here, popping up on the UK BlackBerry site. Of course, since then it’s gone one better and delivered an LTE version, but if you’re in the UK, and want a little PlayBook action with data to go, you can order one today. Much like its LTE sibling, it comes with 32GB of memory, and gets the same faster 1.5GHz processor too. (The original was 1.0GHz.) The kicker here? The price, at around £420 (about $ 690 by conversion) this is only £30 ($ 48) shy of Apple’s 32GB WiFi and cellular iPad mini (at UK prices). On a positive note, while RIM might have had the 3G model lingering for some time, it did beat its own projections. But, with the UK now enjoying LTE, perhaps those interested in a PlayBook might campaign for the faster model to be added to the roster also.

Answer by k_a_s_m_i_t_hi own a blackberry playbook and can tell you that i like it very much. i do not have the Xoom so i cannot compare them.
for the playbook i see the pros as:
size fast processor and ample memory browser is very good if you have a blackberry phone they can sync info full 1080P display as well as HD video camera and regular camera mini HDMI port soi can connect to my flat screen
no native email ( you would have to use a webmail site OR have a blackberry phone to sync with) missing a few apps…like skype and pandora occasional browser crashes…mostlynon very heavy flash site no camera flash
i use my playbook everyday and i now do 80% of the things i used to do on my laptop on the playbook.
sorry i couldn’t be of any help with the Xoom…

Question by Louis M: MOTOROLA XOOM MZ604 vs BLACKBERRY PLAYBOOK vs ASUS EEE PAD TRANSFORMER TF101 vs ipad 2? I just want to know which one is the best between these 3 pads for apps, games utilities etc and I’d like to show it off in front of my friends I don’t care about size and weight and price. I care about storage space and the stuff mentioned above and if there is newer versions of these pads u can put it in the comparison
Answer by KenMotorola Xoom’s advantage is that it has HDMI out and micro USB ports. It also has a 5MP rear camera compared iPad’s lousy 0.7MP.
BlackBerry PlayBook is the only tablet with 1080p video camera (front and back, even).
The ASUS Eee Transformer (TF101) is extremely feature rich for under $ 400: Android 3.1, 10.1 inch 1280×800 IPS (like iPad, but bigger and higher resolution) display, up to 9 hours of battery life (16 hours if optional dock added), optional ability to dock with keyboard, 1 GHz Tegra 250 ARM CPU with 1 GB RAM, good array of ports (mini HDMI, SD, micro SD), preloaded Polaris Office 3.0 for editing documents (.doc), spreadsheets (.xls) and presentation (.ppt) files. Note, though, no 3G (however people report success in tethering it to smart phones).
iPad 2 Advantages:
IPads have a higher degree of fit-and-finish than the competition. Like iPhones vs other smart phones, iPods vs other MP3 players, or Macs vs PC’s, iPads are widely regarded as being more refined and polished than the competition.
iPad 2 Disadvantages:
1. No Flash. 2. No SD expansion; no HDMI port; no USB port. 3. ASUS Eee Transformer has a better display (10.1 inch, 1280×800, IPS vs 9.7 inch, 1024×768, IPS) for less money. 4. PlayBook and G-Slate have better rear camera video recording (1080p vs 720p). 5. PlayBook has much better front camera video recording (1080p vs VGA). 6. Almost all tablets have better camera resolution than iPad’s lousy 0.7 MP. .

RIM announced the 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook earlier this month and it’s finally available from several Canadian carriers. The LTE tablet is slightly upgraded from its WiFi-only counterpart with a 1.5GHz CPU and 32GB storage option, but the main difference is the new LTE radio.
The 7-inch PlayBook is a pretty little package and the operating system is finally a contender. The tablet might have a chance if RIM was in a position to price the PlayBook competitively.
The LTE PlayBook is expensive. It’s available through Bell and Rogers for $ 350 with a three-year contract (lengthy contracts are normal in Canada). The 32GB LTE PlayBook is also available through TELUS without a contract for $ 550.
RIM is a tough situation. With its dire financial situation, RIM cannot aggressively price the 4G PlayBook. It likely cannot take a loss on the hardware sales hence the above market pricing. RIM has yet to announce the 4G PlayBook’s US price or release date.Related Posts:
FCC filings, leaked roadmaps, and comments from RIM’s top brass all pointed to the existence of an LTE-capable BlackBerry PlayBook — the only question left was when the thing would finally launch. The answer, according to a new statement released by RIM, is very soon.
RIM’s LTE PlayBook will launch in Canada on August 9 (with support from a handful of Canadian carriers), where it will remain for the time being. The company hasn’t provided any specifics on when the 4G-capable tab will trickle into other markets, saying only that it will be available in “the coming months from carriers in the US, Europe, South Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.”
Interestingly enough, there’s very little word on what (if any) changes RIM made to the tablet aside from the inclusion of an LTE radio and a microSD card slot. All that RIM has revealed as far as the refreshed tab’s spec sheet is that it sports 32GB of internal storage — not much of a shock considering RIM killed the 16GB PlayBook line back in June. Also notably absent from today’s announcement are any specifics when it comes to pricing for the tablet, though that’s probably the sort of detail that’s best left for RIM’s carrier partners to disclose.
UPDATE: RIM representatives have just confirmed to me that the LTE PlayBook indeed sports a new 1.5GHz processor, instead of the 1GHz chip seen in the original models.
While the 4G PlayBook’s existence has been an open secret for months now, it’s sort of heartening to see RIM getting ready to push it out the door. If the roadmap I previously alluded to is accurate, then the refreshed tab looks appears to be the last major bit of hardware RIM was planned before the first BlackBerry 10 devices make their debut in early 2013.
Considering how much the company has riding on a successful launch, it’s probably good for them to be able to take one more thing off their already-loaded plate. That said, the market for a RIM tablet appears to be slowly drying up — RIM reported that it shipped 260,000 PlayBooks in its most recent earnings statement, down nearly 50% from the previous quarter — and the inclusion of an LTE radio may not be enough to turn that trend around.Related Posts:
