As one poster said, the lack of microSD slot can be overcome with USB OTG, or better yet, a 500GB Wifi Seagate hard drive . The real deal breaker for me was the lack of HDMI support, with no way of obtaining it even via mods. That being said, I chose to go with the Galaxy Note 10.1, and with all it's features and mult-tasking capabilities, makes it one of, if not the best tablet on the market right now.

Re: My review. Blackberry Playbook vs Nexus 7.
I prefer using both the BBPB and the N7 in landscape mode. Perhaps the PB is a tad slower but with the view toggle I can at least have the whole screen width for the message. Also the draft saving features and the font selections are nice. Therefore for me the PB email is better.

Blackberry vs Nexus 7
I have been using Playbook for nearly 3 months and this is the best tablet i have ever used. Infact i have used samsung galaxy tab and also nexus 7, but nothing appealed to me as Playbook.
Pros & Cons of playbook:
1) Cool OS
2) Excellent Speakers
3) Exellent Build Quality
4) Camera is extremely good in bright light with 1080p recording but issue is at night and low light situation & fixed focus sucks
5) Battery life is superb. Can watch 3-4 movies on a go and around 7-8 hrs of WIFI
6) Excellent Display compared to galaxy tab2 ( Galaxy tab 2 sucks in all areas)
7) Competes even with latest tablets like IPAD 3 in specification.
8) Very Cheap. In india the cost of 64GB itself is 18.5K.
9) HDMI port
1) Apps support
2) WIFI dowload speed is vry slow for unknown reason whereas galaxy tab and nexus downloads lot quicker with the same connection.
3) Lack of skype support (no use of 3mp cool camera without dis. I hardly hv any frinds with blackberry devices and hence built in video chat is of no use.)
PROS & CONS of Nexus 7 :
1) HD Display
2) Jelly Bean OS apps.
3) Superb CPU specification
4) Cool battery backup almost same as playbook.
1) Built Quality is not so good as playbook
2) Lack of a professional camera
3) Android UI is extremely laggy sometimes.
4) Lack of HDMI port and back speakers are not so gud.
Done ask me about galaxy tab 2 as it is nowhere equal to these professional tablets. Extremely poor built quality when compared to nexus 7 and playbook.

Even when it looks not a promising future for PB's I decided to go for it and will get mine this week as I still use flash and will love the bridge and tethering functions using it together with my BB Torch 9850
