    Hi everyone

    I recently purchased a playbook based mainly on size - felt the Ipad was too big and also the price differential !

    Having undetraken some reseasrch there were a number of other advantages over ipad -

    weight 425g ipad 601g
    1gb ram ipad 512mb
    front camera 5mp ipad 2mp ? max?
    Video 1080 ipad 720
    Rear camera 3mp ipad 0.7?

    Price 169 399 min

    I hope my figures above are correct?

    Really pleased with the playbook so far BUT the lack of a flash (as with most tablets) is really annoying

    Has anyone got some suggestions in terms of an minimal size flash that I could use to improve matters

    You got the cameras mixed up i think...
    As for the size...You can download "box" and you get 50 GB (if the offer is still standing) of storage...So if you're withing wi-fi range you'll do great ;P

    Also...I don't think you can use an SD Card w/ the iPad

    u can carry around a small led flashlight, or even a head-light, and shine it on the thing you want to take a picture of.

    i don't think that an external flash for phones (via micro usb or bt) exists...

    The headlamp/flashlight would be the only solution. A "real" camera flash would not be synchronized with the shutter.

    The OP is very vague.

    Flash - for the camera?
    Flash - Software (flash player)?
    Flash - Storage?
    Flash - exposing yourself?

    LOL @ the last type of "flash".

    OP, can you clear this for us?

    The OP must be talking about "Camera" Flash. Any logical thinking would show you that.

    Playbook and most Android tablets have Adobe Flash Player
    Majority of PMP and Tablets use Flash Memory
    So he must want a simple solution to the lack of Camera flash in "most" tablets (one that does not take a lot of effort to take around)

    If I'm wrong then damn

    Maybe he wants to get flashed by young ladies using the playbook.

    I never felt the need of a LED Flash on my phone/tablet. I just use a digital camera if I need to take pictures in the dark...

    I just use the thing the PB is bridged to (bb 9780), which has a nifty flash.
