If you are already a Tablet user, I guess PlayBook is not going to inspire you much. The distinguishing feature in PlayBook is its fast browsing and simple yet innovative interface. If you are a hardcore Blackberry Fan, then this is some for you. Another great feature of PlayBook is its Swipe up and Swipe down.

Now coming to the major drawback, like majority of Blackberries, PlayBook has less number of apps where Apple and Android are already dominating the market. Another drawback is that it does not come with native email and calander which RIM says that they will add it later this year.

In a nutshell, PlayBook is for two types of people. One who are hardcore Blackberry loyalists and second who wants to experience ultimate web browsing and use it for business features like video videoconferencing etc as it is an excellent solution for enterprise
