    @ OP.
    You complain in 'general', without mentioning what you want from a tablet and how the PB falls short for that specifically.
    My wife and I both use our PB's daily, my daughter loves her Xoom, while my work issued iPad is just lying around.
    Over holidays I was recovering from hernia surgery and I did not turn my laptop on for 2 weeks. First week while bed ridden, I check email, FB, news, etc. from my bed - even streamed cricket games. I also watched 2 full seasons of Rizzoli & Isles I downloaded - I could not have been happier using my PB those 2 weeks.
    So, it all depends on your purpose what you want to do with a tablet if you will like or hate it.

    Well this forum was already noted for its almost complete lack of moderation of personal attacks and completely absurd defence of the shortcomings of the playbook, but here it takes a different scale.

    The use of indeterminates means that ANY disappointment should be directed to ANY person and NO device WHATSOEVER, FOREVER !!!

    This is cosmic.

    Have become very disappointed with it, browser, lagging while typing, apps hanging and so on. I can't even backup so I can wipe it. But, let me tell you this is one tough suckered. I've abused this thing and don't have a scratch on it. There's no way a ipad would have survived. But I still use it every day

    Havent even charged mine in about 3 months. Worst tech purchase I ever made.
    Picking up a Nexus 7 today so I have a proper tablet to do the heavy lifting and can get a BB10 device at launch without missing the functionality of Android.

    Everything that works on the playbook it works better on Android
    Really ...? Every, single, solitary thing? How does the Android tablet outperform the PlayBook when it comes to bridging with a BlackBerry?

    ------------------------------------
    I like how BlackBerry 10 is evolving, but when are they going to fix BlackBerry Link for Mac?

    The fact that it doesn't reliably do what it's supposed to do ... most of the time ... is utterly appalling. The only consistency is the "Music not copied to Z10 message"

    I've had mine for a year now,not saying it is the best but it does what I want. I'm happy and it was a fraction of the cost of all the other tablets. In my book money well spent. As others have said do your research and pick the right tablet for you.

    Ahhh - I see. You don't like BlackBerry tablets. You don't like BlackBerry phones.

    In that case, one has to wonder why you're on crackberry.com at all? Android Central is over here: Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    Android Bridging apps? Do tell. Of course maybe you don't know what Bridge really does.

    Better phones? Do tell. Keep in mind, this phone needs to have: at least five methods of operation (touch, voice, physical keyboard, optical trackpad (aka built in mouse) and virtual keyboard), a unified inbox (twitter, Facebook, text, email, etc), a convenience key on the side with dual functionality (quick press camera and long press voice dictation) and I'll just stop there for now.

    You have made it clear that you don't like BlackBerry and Crackberry. Sometimes it is best to just let go man.

    Sorry, I have to disagree with the last sentence - although I have heard it many times.

    I too am disappointed, more so since I bought a Nexus 7. A lot of days my PB gathers dust while I enjoy my Nexus 7.

I did not claim that RIM had or has ever advertised the PB as Android compatible, but the sales people who recommended this to the family member who made the birthday purchase most definitely used the "Android Compatible" as a big selling point over a similar priced Android based Tab. Everything they read on the internet before the final purchase also confirmed this for them, and was a big, big influence on the purchase.

    And slparry, you did note you said your PB has replaced your laptop for MOST things didn't you.. Well to answer that, my smart phone has replaced my laptop for MOST things..Email, browsing the net, listening to music, watching movies, the list goes on... I don't want to carry around a larger heavier unit when my phone does the same if not more.. I want my Tab be a more convenient, more mobile replacement for my laptop. And this is where the PB falls short. Both Apple and Android devices have great support that is available as long as you have internet access, if you need or require an app for either of them while out and about just download it, the PB probably won't have the app you need in its own market, so then you got to get access to a PC to look for and hope there's a Compatible Android app. It's more a semi mobile device than a full on go anywhere tab.

    And RubberChicken76, no of course I have not tried all 30,000 apps.... I speak from the ones I have tried and found to be not exactly what I expected quality wise. Yes it's the same for all systems and their apps... But the big difference here is the support for the systems, the big two IOS and Android have a far bigger developer base, meaning the apps are of a far better quality because each developer is trying to make their app better than the competitions. The PB has very little support so therefore it goes without saying that most apps are far from the best they could be if there was more people/companies developing apps for the system.

    I don't want to upset those who like their PB's, I'm truly glad your happy with your system, I personally am a little disappointed in mine and just wondered if I was on my own...

    I far from hate the system, but I am disappointed at it's lack of ability to compete with if not surpass it's two main rivals. And from a loyal BB phone user that has surprised me.. I expected so much more.

    But that's a personal thing....

    Bottom line, the PB was a disaster when it was introduced and is the weak link of RIM and is continuing to bring the company down through wasted time and resources and will bring about the end of RIM. The playbook is the worst thing RIM has done to date. BB10 will hold off RIM's demise for a bit but it won't be able to overcome the massive losses the playbook has and continues to cause. I speak from knowledge and experience, having owned 3 different PB's and following RIM for many years.

    I got my first Playbook back in Jan 2012. So I understand a little of the frustration of the early adopters. But now the PB OS and app selection has gotten a lot better. I like it the way it is but hope it may get even better. Those who take joy in calling it garbage and a disaster puzzle me. Does it please them to be unhappy every day with the device? Have they already moved on to another system but take great joy in dumping on those they left to show how much smarter they are? I. Also have a Nexus 7 and enjoy it too. I suspect that Jelly Bean is much better than Android in mid 2011. But I find the PB more useful. As for Bambino Italiano think a point was made that the individual must evaluate information and is finally responsible for his choice. Perhaps not expressed gracefully from the viewpoint of those who took it personally. Live longer, be happy.

    Nobody takes joy in calling it a disaster or garbage. It doesnt make people happy to be unhappy with a device. Having said that, we put down hard earned money to support RIM. And were rewarded with what many feel is an absolutely awful product. Nowt wrong with being unhappy about that.

    I'm so sorry your dissapointed with you BB PB experience. For me, $300 worth of apps/games from iOS/Android Sideloaded to my 64GB PB>>> SO WORTH THE TIME to Spend. for the price of the PB you can never go wrong. though it lacks some famous apps, there are some alternatives anyways. Just dig dipper through the forums.

    Sideloading isnt something a consumer should have to go through.
    iOS apps cant be sideloaded as far as Im aware.
    Much vaulted security of this device is out the window when youre sideloading apps.
    There are no native alternatives for anything I use my phone/tablet for.
    The price is irrelevant when you consider its a paperweight. Id rather have dropped 200 quid at the casino.
    The damage this product has done to RIM is immeasurable, people who picked these up, particularly casual consumers, are going to be extremely distrustful of anything RIM comes out with in the future. Theyd have been better off giving them away with OS7 devices, that would have been win win.
