Blackberry Playbook

There have been a lot of details and press conferences about the BB Playbook and other tablets. And the Playbook is built on Blackberry’s platform so it will be a corporate communication tool and tablet at the same time. I for one don’t think it will fair very well compared to the iPad, and that the case with other tablets, none of them are gaining the success of the iPad. One main reason is that BB App Store is not even half as good the iPad App Store, there aren’t enough applications and they said they would open it up to the Android market which I am not sure about yet. Apple does make good hardware but that isn’t what sells their product, its the user experience and the selection of quality Apps. And in our case the Blackberry App Store doesn’t work on this side of the world, but for Apple it does, it doesn’t make any sense why they are blocking their App store. At this rate I don’t think the tablet will do well especially since it will have very few applications for the international market and you can only do so much with BBM.

    Yes it does work, it was announced a couple of days ago and I’m assuming it’s because the Playbook is coming out soon

  3. Yes it’s true app world is working and it’s because of the impending release of the Playbook in Kuwait but so far it’s mostly Zain who has the App World working, not sure about VIVA and Wataniya yet.

    the Playbook will be able to run android apps, so it will have so many applications

  5. @BuJassem – At last! Thanks for the update! I just wonder why they had it closed in the first place!

    @Ellee – Cool!

    @Jacqui – Interesting so Zain is getting the playbook first!

    @AIC – Android has good Apps but they will not be optimized for the Playbook so it might fit well when being used! The programs won’t be refined for it!
