Hulu just blocked its video content from the newest BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. That's the latest tablet to support Adobe Flash (and pretty damn well too) next to the Motorola Xoom to get the Hulu gate pulled down on it. My big concern is: what good is the full web with Flash on a tablet "computer" if you're content is just going to get blocked off?
I already told you how I feel about the BlackBerry PlayBook. I've got a love-hate relationship with it. While it might feel unfinished and incomplete until its core features are rolled out in a firmware update, the 1080p HD shooting cameras are quite finished, even during a semi-dark Train concert. The tablet's 7-inch screen makes for a viewfinder experience unlike any other consumer camera.
It's been quite a journey following RIM's PlayBook tablet from announcement to launch. The amount of hype this device has received can't be understated. We've seen plenty of videos and more showing the PlayBook smoke the iPad in web page rendering, showing off its touch-sensitive bezel, confirming that it runs Android smartphone apps and cheering at its iPad-mirroring price points, but that was before we settled in with it. Now that we've welcomed it into our home, is the PlayBook worth going gaga for in the real world? Click on for our full review.
Touchscreen devices are vital to Apple's plan for world domination, so naturally it'd try to secure as many touchscreen panels as possible. According to DigiTimes, Apple's such a hog on the glass that RIM was unable to get enough to produce sufficient amounts of its BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.
It's been a long journey for RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook. But at last, the 7-inch tablet with a speedy 1GHz dual-core processor and a nifty smart bezel can be brought home next month for as low as $500.
Earlier this month, it was reported that the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet could have the ability to run Android apps. A new video from the recent Mobile World Congress in Barcelona has surfaced that just about confirms RIM's new potential plan of attack.
Bloomberg is reporting that RIM's upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook tablet will be capable of running over 130,000 Android apps. So a tablet that isn't even powered by Android will get Android apps — how fantastic does that sound?
Is it just us or does it seem like Verizon is getting all the goodies this year? First the Droid Bionic, then the iPhone 4 and now it's expected to get the lightning fast BlackBerry PlayBook? Sounds like a plan to us!
Despite all the praise that the BlackBerry PlayBook has garnered in the last few months since its unveiling, concerns about its battery and subsequently, a potential product delay continue to plague the tablet. RIM's finally come out to do damage...
The BlackBerry PlayBook is already looking fairly impressive. RIM isn't kidding when it tells everyone that it's building a tablet entirely from scratch and not just expanding on a smartphone OS. New intel shows the tablet's bezel is more than just a place to rest your thumbs — it's touch sensitive.
