Spawned in the horrendous heat of a Los Angeles winter, James was born with an incessant need to press buttons. Whether it was the car radio, doorbells on Halloween or lights, James pushed, pressed and prodded every button. No elevator was left unscathed, no building intercom was left un-rung, and no person he’s known has been left un-annoyed.

  1. Hi James,

    Thanks for stopping by our booth this week—glad to hear that your hands-on experience with the BlackBerry PlayBook was so positive. We certainly agree that the PlayBook delivers an experience that builds on the BlackBerry handsets. Though a BlackBerry smartphone’s functionality can be extended onto a PlayBook via the BlackBerry Bridge technology, the PlayBook as a stand-alone device offers users a professional-grade user experience made possible by a reliable QNX platform. The QNX platform is the power behind the 3-D applications, video playback, and web browser which ran so smoothly when you tested it out. To answer Bill’s question, the PlayBook’s battery life can definitely make it on cross-country flight as its 5300mAh battery pack is expected to last a full-day on a single charge with moderate-to-heavy use.

    We hope you’ll find even more reasons to be impressed by the PlayBook when our Sprint 4G model is released this summer. Until then, stay tuned for updates on BlackBerry Bridge and apps coming soon!

  2. Why no mention of the battery life, oh yeah I know why. Because it's crap! Last I read was the Playbook was only capable of about 4 to 5 hours of use. Blackberry better get that figured out fast, why would I want a tablet that only lasts that long. I agree that the iPad has many flaws, but at least you can use it on a cross country flight.

  3. False. Motorolla Xoom is better. Lol this sounds like such a fanboy/troll post. THE INTERNET IS GETTING TO ME…
