So, BlackBerry fans... What tablet do you use?
After IOS7 slaughtered my iPad, I got a Samsung Galaxy Note Pro.
It has a lot of very cool features, but honestly it is somewhat buggy (crazy lag on that thing) and it was really best when paired with my Note 3 phone, which of course the Kitkat update promptly destroyed.
So I have my Q10 which I love.
I have my Note Pro which I like, but knowing Android, I know full well that their next update, which will be forced on me like it was with the Note 3, will cripple my tablet.
And the Playbook has been discontinued.
So when I have to bury my Note Pro, I'm not sure what to get.
I need something fast, with a lot of memory (64 GB), decent battery life, LTE connected, reliable.
Which tablet do you have, do you like it, and why? What do you use it for?

I have an Apple ipad mini. Don't use it for much but reading and surfing.

Everything I say is my OPINION and is based on my experiences and what I have learned. It is not meant to attack but to drive meaningful conversation. Let's all be civil!I use what I want.
Apple, really? *cries*
I've been trying to get away from Apple since the IOS7 snafu. I still have an Itouch for the apps that I need that aren't on BB but iPad seriously let me down when I was in school, which is why I switched.

After my PlayBook became too slow, I got an Asus VivoTab, an 8" Windows tablet with pen support. It runs full Windows 8.1 and has an SD card slot, so memory is not an issue. I use it primarily for work; usually with my Q10's mobile hotspot (faster than any wifi, even at home!). The pen is awesome - I can receive a pdf document to sign, so instead of printing it out, signing, scanning it in and sending it, I just display it on the screen and sign it with the pen. It's a hard tip pen, so feels just like a real one.
Other than that - it's Windows, like it or don't. Poor app selection, but what you get is a full computer in an 8" package. Facebook and newspaper apps work well.

Tried a bunch of tablets since the Playbook and not necessarily happy with any of them. Finally settled for the Galaxy Note Pro 8.4 for lack of anything better. Still rely mostly on my Z30 for surfing a lot of sites. Galaxy + Chrome browser lags a fair bit.

I made the switch to the samsung galaxy tab pro 8.4 as my wife told me that I needed something for Father's Day (was still using my playbook faithfully for bridge function and excel sheets).
After the first evening I've fallen in love with the limit Less options that I can do with it. There's a few grips with the OS, ie I want gesture navigation and not back buttons, but what can you do?
I find myself using this more than my z10 for social stuff, media and general web browsing.
It's also become a big power house for all my work when I'm nowhere near a computer for work.
