I bought my Blackberry Playbook today! I also bought a wireless router at the same time, so now I can theoretically sit in bed reading. No porn however, since I'll be returning this tablet in less than two weeks so that I can do contrasting research with the iPad. Also, my friend will be probably helping me with my Blackberry when I inevitably get stuck, and I don't want him to know any of my deep, dark secrets, especially since he's a friend of my husband's and God knows how long it will take me to figure out how to delete my browsing history.
I'm already finding the BP a little heavy to hold in one hand, and it's the lightest tablet out there. Maybe I just need stronger wrists. It doesn't come with 3G, so I cannot have a data plan with it. WiFi only, but if I get a cell phone later with a data plan, I can make them play nice together and get internet on my BP! It apparently wouldn't have to be a Blackberry smartphone either.
Using a touchscreen really takes a lot of getting used to. The tablet is warming to my swiping technique, although it originally felt that it didn't have to take my lame swipes seriously.
I'll put periodic updates here to let you know how I'm getting on with my tablets. Don't expect quality reviews from a person who knows what she's talking about and is able to sum up pros and cons, though. These updates will more likely reveal hitherto unsuspected depths of doziness in the brain of Brit. Hopefully readers will not be left shaking their heads sadly and asking themselves, "How on earth does she tie her shoes? How does she hold down a job? Can she even eat dinner and watch TV at the same time?"
