    Tell that to the company in Ontario that invested heavily in the BlackBerry PlayBook as an integral part of its law enforcement products, specifically the police cruiser controlled by a BlackBerry PlayBook. Where is that car these days?
    You know all the apps still work right? lol. Along with all the other solutions offered. Government turnaround on technology is generally always fairly slow. I might have no use for the PlayBook any more but it's still applicable throughout Enterprise environments for their often rather simple and purpose driven uses.

    Heck, the company that delivers supplies to my parents catering company still uses them. Why? Because they only use it for one inventory app, they're cheap and it works, there's no need to update to anything else because it serves their purpose.

    I am going to respond anyway. I bought a Playbook about a year and a half ago, basically to function as a larger screen, first for my Style, then for my Q10. It works great for that, whether it is reading the New York times in the morning, or using DocsToGo for the many email attachments I get for the many emails I receive that relate to biotech. Once the Passport is released I expect that will replace both the Q10 and the Playbook. My wife has an iPad air, and she loves that, but mostly she likes to play games, surf Facebook, that sort of thing. She would find the Playbook useless, while I could use her toy every bit as effectively as my Playbook. Where all tablets leave me frustrated, including the iPads, is that the one indulgence I would care about would be to use one as a digital sheet music library. I've seen kids using iPads for that, buy my aging eyes want something bigger, so that gets into a screen size about what I have for my laptop, but with slightly less processing power. So, if you are satisfied with "hating" all tablets because none of them do exactly what I want one for, you should be ecstatic right now.
    I put digital sheet music on the playbook adobe, or do a screen shot. That way I can make the scores as large as I want.

    I don't HATE my Playbook and I use it every day, but even I recognize limitations to it. It honestly really depends on your needs and your uses. You cannot say "other than X, what can't the Playbook do", because for some, X is an important program/feature. Web surfing is fairly slow on this thing, even in Origami browser. Email works, but it is slow as well with certain features missing (mark all as read). For my basic needs, it works well enough that I wouldn't want to move on to something else until this thing breaks down. For my daughter, it used to be a decent tablet for her to play games on, but as she's grown, so have her interests and the ipad is now her tablet of choice. For some, being able to chromecast is a great feature (which we do use from the ipad) and that is something which will never come to the Playbook. I'm not ready to throw it out because of this limitation, but it would have been a "nice to have". Meh, as a basic tablet, it works, but not everyone is looking for a basic tablet.

    Let it go, OP. Why do you care so much about what others think? Frankly, your challenge to readers doesn't make sense: say things that the PB can't do, but don't list specific items that you've already pointed out?

    I really like the PB and get a lot of use out of it, but people have a right to choose the tech that works for them. Just as we have a right to like it, so too do others have a right to hate/dislike it.

    For the record, I tested out some newer Android tablets at a store, recently. The Nexus 7 is VERY nice and I'd consider it as a replacement, but my PB is still going strong so I'll use it until it gives out. What does it do that the PB doesn't? Nothing, technically, but lots more functionally.

    I hope you don't lose actual sleep over such trivial matters.

    That is not how it works and never has done. It's simply reminiscent of iPhone users who respond to those who don't get an iPhone by saying they clearly can't afford 'better'.

    I can afford a better, newer tablet too. I don't currently see the value in doing so, my financial status is utterly irrelevant.

    Really!! What can any other tablet do that playbook can't. Please don't recite mantra it's slower, not as many apps, and you can't use netflix etc websites. Who the hell cares for majority users?. Playbook is a quality sturdy tablet. I can drop it and still use it I can access my email, cruise websites, watch videos, listen to all my music, use gps , play chess play games etc etc ETC ETC ETC aud nauseum. JUST LIKE THE MYRIAD OF OTHER TABLETS. What gives.?? Why do you hate playbook so much? I'm starting to think it is only a myriad of playbook laid off employees who post here and have lost their401k.

    I'd love to respond so I could be like what seems to be the majority...ok, that's a lie. I don't care what the haters say. It's a fantastic tablet. I bought 2 64GB new for $269 each several years ago and was and still am very pleased. I could not justify spending more for a tablet with less storage and functionality. Bridge - HELLO?!! Also love the video chat with my children when I'm traveling for work.

    Struggling to see the purpose behind this thread.

    Three year old tablet currently used by enthusiasts (inc. myself) and virtually nobody else.

    'Hate' is a strong word where few people could actually care less.

    "Hey, HP Touchpad haters!"

    Erm...

    What's to hate? It's a discontinued tablet like the HP TouchPad, HP Slate, Kindle whatever. It probably works fine for whatever people have been using tablets for as of several years ago. Plenty of people use tablets that are several years old so there's nothing wrong with it. I don't hate flip phones either. People make phone calls with them and text.

So I am not going to upgrade to a comparable 2014 Ford Focus Type tablet like nexus when my 1967 CLASSIC MUSTANG ie BLACKBERRY PLAYBOOK suffices and works.

    PlayBook can't recognise when I open email on my phone, stays as new mail on PB.

    Playbook doesn't even have working Facebook app.
    Yes the browser would be fine, IF it wasn't so slow.

    It might work for you, that's fine, but you don't see other people creating threads like 'Why the Hell does the PlayBook work for you' now do you...
