Blackberry Tablet, Research in Motion’s jumping on the tablet market with the launch BlackBerry playbook on 19 April. But this is not a tablet, and RIM may have trouble selling this device are not BlackBerry owners.
First, I would say I’ve seen this device in person, but have not devoted a lot of time pouring over every function, the first impression was good. The gestures are intuitive, making navigation very easy for any buyer. The Tablet BlackBerry OS (supported Android application hidden somewhere) is rich in graphics without being overwhelming.
Before you even get to why this pill may be just for owners of BlackBerry, is definitely a businessperson tablet over a model of the average consumer. It is a 7-inch tablet, and when I first held, the playbook immediately reminded me of the HP board. The playbook without doubt the role of a consumer tablet better than the board (which seems to be the direction I want to take RIM) with its most colorful and shiny operating system along with the excellent HD 1080p video playback that looked dramatically in the capacitive multi-touch screen.
However, the -inch frame makes it ideal for frequent business travelers, and form factor is touted to be able to fit into the inside jacket pockets. As nice as the screen, someone buys a tablet primarily for entertainment will want a slightly larger screen. Other useful features from the time of release that will appeal to business-minded buyers, includes the same high safety levels seen in the BlackBerry smartphones, along with the improvement and not the mobile versions of Microsoft Word and Excel.
But the absolute reason that this tablet will unattractive for owners is not the situation BlackBerry e-mail. BlackBerry owners will not have a problem here as emails (along with contacts and calendars) are reflected from a BlackBerry handheld to the playbook using a secure Bluetooth connection.
No email application native to the playbook – even if RIM has promised that this type of application is published in a software update in the future, without specifying a time when we can expect this. Until then, BlackBerry owners will not have to resort to using the browser to access email. Given that the version of Wi-Fi only playbook is the only model to be released on Tuesday that present a problem for users who want to check your email in the browser bar in transit. (4G Edition Sprint will launch this summer.)
One has to wonder, why not install the client before sending the tablet in the first place? Supposedly there are technical reasons, but it is a big mistake to rush out a tablet without a mail client installed. How could a tablet to have any chance of success without an email client from? That’s one of the main reasons to buy a tablet. It has the basics convenient to access, but can do more work than they could on a smartphone.
RIM can forget any dreams of hits Apple and IPAD at this point. At least that email application compatible with e-mail from multiple sources, including Gmail, Yahoo Mail and Microsoft Exchange multiple accounts. Should have a chance against Xoom Motorola given the way comments have been with one, and also against Evo View HTC G (which is the same size) once it is released this summer.
However, I must say that I think this tablet is ideal for owners of BlackBerry. It is obvious that the pill is designed for them, why bother going with something else? Not to mention that there are several features to commend in this tablet, in addition to the display, including HDMI connectivity and the front 3-megapixel webcam that face would be ideal for video chat and conference.
But RIM is still going to have a very difficult time from Tuesday to try to sell the playbook for the mass market. As announced on the product page, this is a “professional level” tablet. But the playbook is definitely a business tablet and only worth buying (at least right now) if you already have a BlackBerry.
