    Between OS 2.0 vs the newest iOS, my Playbook still rocks, browses just as fast and even supports flash, whereas the iPad is crippingly slow and browsers crash often.
    I think it's a hoot !

    Disagree. PlayBook's Web browser cannot compare in terms of speed. Though it has a big advantage because it supports flash. Switching thru apps and closing is so much more efficient in the PlayBook OS compared to the iPad.

    What kind of over powered playbook are you using? Mine is pretty much defunct. Browser won't work at all. I use it as a mouse pad I'm not gonna lie.

    I'm pretty sure he's talking about the Playbook vs the iPad 2, not the iPad air 2. Which if the Playbook on its second major OS release is better than a 5 year old ipad running a 5th major OS release I wouldn't be surprised. It's amazing that a 5 year old tablet can even run ios9. Put an ios 4 on the ipad 2 (which is what it started with) and the Playbook won't win that battle.

    If you are talking about the iPad Air 2 OP then I want some of what you are smoking.

    I have PB and ipad mini 2.

    Ipad kills the PB. The playbook is slower and can't use hardly any apps. Nothing special about browser. Mini is real fluid and fast. Much better than PB.

    My playbook has been an alarm clock for the last two years. It's very good at it.

    To be fair, the PB (in its day) was a fine tablet, and the perfect partner to my Torch. My son used his every day (until Xmas, when he got a Surface Pro) as his supremely-portable browser. The iPad was too big.

    But, to try and claim that it's better than an iPad is just crazy-talk. I had an iPad2 and, except for portability, there was never any question of which was "better".

    You got the point

    We have an ipad 2 and my Playbook
    We wanted to watch the Dicaprio / Lady Gaga viral video.

    The browser (any one) loaded and crashed on the iPad 2

    Worked fine on the playbook though

    I obviously am not in denial about the reasons why but it does make one reflect on the obsolescence of even older apple tablets.

    Because the iPad 2 had apps which required iOS 9 to keep functioning, we had to upgrade but this thing is slow and clunky now.

    And for those who think that buying the newest ipads every 2 yrs is ecological because you aren't wasting paper, you may want to reflect on the consequences of e-waste

    What? You're kidding right? You can't even watch YouTube on the PlayBook anymore without a third party browser. At the time it was a great tablet, but the iPad 2 has managed to remain more functional over time.

    I miss that checker-boarding in the browser, I've never seen it on any other device that I've owned.

    As to the iPad 2 being a bit slow with iOS9 on... I'm kind of astonished that anyone should be annoyed with the performance of a very old tablet when running the latest OS that is optimised for processors several generations newer. I'd have been impressed that it ran at all. I think I had iOS 5.1 on mine, which I thought was the latest that particular iPad would support, but maybe things have changed?

    Anyway, my iPad2 (with iOS5.1) ran rings around the Playbook browser. The only "win" for the PB was in terms of its near-perfect size.

    And, of course, the iPad runs later versions of iOS much faster than the Playbook runs BB10!

    Wow have an ipad mini but my playbook sadly cannot compete with the ipad. Browser is horrible even the origami one. It used to be good but not anymore. Just cannot understand why. Despite the fact that the ipad is thinner I just like the playbook better. Speakers are great and the position way better than the ipad.
    Why oh why, BlackBerry......

    Haha that checkerboarding is ALIVE and WELL on my PlayBook. I have a hard time believing that PlayBook's browser is faster than the iPads lol. Even if it is, it's still not fast by any means lol

    The PlayBook was not bad when it came out but it has degraded a lot over time.

    I am pretty impressed with how BlackBerry fixed the browser by the time BB10 came out though. It was so much slower on the PlayBook.
