Everyday I love my Playbook :))

I love to win a LTE Playbook, please pick me.

I went to the Bell store today to take a look of the brand new LTE Playbook.

First thing it impressed me was the smoothness and clearness of the screen. It feels different from the Wi-Fi Playbook. I woner if it has a Rain Guard on...you know the one for your windshield, so rain drops slide off.

Because it was brand new, it took a while to setup and boot, not overly so, quicker than the Wi-Fi PB as I can remember. The software version is 2.0.1.668.

LTE feels faster than the Wi-Fi brother. Make sense with 50% more CPU power.

Couldn't try out the LTE as there is no LTE in the area...too bad. I was looking forward for the lightning speed experience.

There are only two LTE tablets offered by Bell.
Samsung Galaxy 8.9 LTE and the LTE Playbook. Galaxy has reduced their price to $200 with a 3-year contract (just few days before the LTE Playbook launch, before it was $300).
The LTE Playbook is $350 with a 3-year contract.

So I was curious as to what extra $150 buys you.

Playbook - 1.5GHz dual core CPU, 32GB memory, 5MP rear facing camera, 3MP front facing camera, HDMI output, bridging for BBM

Galaxy Tab 8.9 - 1GHz dual core CPU, 16GB memory, 3MP rear facing camera, 2MP front facing camera, No HDMI output.

As you can see, faster CPU, better camera and HDMI all translate to a better user experience in speed and a big screen experience for any kind of HD presentation. 32GB memory is a sweet spot, as 16 GB is not enough and if there were a 64 GB offering it would have been more than enough.
For example, Playbook has a great map/navigation app called Osmand (superset of Google Map) which can download offline maps, so memory space is desirable (16GB will be lack and 32 GB is great).
The reason I call Osmand a superset of Google Map is, one of the switches can turn on using online map (instead of offline) from various sources; one of them is Google Map. Osmand offers multiple online routing service or an offline routing, with turn-by-turn navigation. The Playbook is a perfect size for the car. Next time when you go to a foreign country, you can download an offline map (many countries available and many languages) and you will never get lost driving or walking, even without any Internet connection!
The best part is...it is FREE!

Clearly, the Galaxy tablet is aimed for Play. Do a great job of it with plastic packaging.
Playbook is aimed for Work and Play. It is a bonus for the wait-and-see (not willing to take the plunge with the first version of Playbook) BB phone users as they can instantly grow their screen real estate on the Playbook, do everything on a 7" screen...biggest phone you can get in the world...7" phone!

Of course, the LTE Playbook is a fully standalone tablet that has a unified inbox (bring in mails and messages from all different sources into one), contact and calendar for the not-yet BB users.

I can't justify to buy a LTE Playbook as we have one Wi-Fi Playbook already in the household. But it sure would be nice to have the LTE Playbook so we don't need to time share the Wi-Fi PB. :)

Thanks, please pick me :):):).

I really want a 4G Playbook! Pick me up please! :-)

dytaniguchi

Thanks for giving us a chance at winning this quality tablet.

3xberry

I bought a playbook (my first blackberry product ever) back in Oct 2011. Yes, because they were on for a great price. I fell in love immediately! BEFORE os2!
Within 2 weeks I bought 2 more playbooks for my teens. They fell in love with their playbooks too.
By December I had my first berry for work. I fell in love with my work berry!
By March all of us owned 9900's.
I dont get swayed by marketing hype. I choose products that fit my needs and budget. Berrys do that for me.
I have owned MANY other phones over the past 9 years. None compare to the quality functionality and reliability of RIM.
I can afford the data plan for my new playbook so, if i am gifted the new playbook, I will give my current playbook to a random person in need.
Cheers to all users and products!

marlianno

I want it! I want it! It would be an awesome experience to feel the new 4G PlayBook... Hope the OS 2.1 release soon enough :). Thanks CrackBerry :)

yeohda

4get about webOS, 4go any inclination android, 4sake temptation brought about by Apple, 4tify your resilience against the Microsoft's Surface tab and most of all I 4see myself winning a PlayBook with 4G.

P.S. A certain Mr. 4stall should take hints at how a good OS is designed. (Sans the patent litigation). BB4Life!

sjon888

Can i have this please, my playbook died on me last month cant afford to have it fix =(

swegeman

Never entered. Before but. Could not resist this one!

victorokinda

am waiting for my playbook (wifi only 32G) to arrive in six days time. I love the design , hardware and the OS that powers it up. So despite the negative reviews RIM devices are getting at the momment, I settled on this.
Winning an LTE playbook will definitely make it worth my while since unlike in the developed countries in Kenya wifi networks are not everywhere so an LTE playbook will improve my connectivity.
All in all count me in.

onatewi

So excited about the 4g PlayBook and the new bb10 phones that will be coming out in 2012.

jznguyen12

I love my 64gb PB with my 9810. I would leave this one at home a "google" tv to stream movies/music and search the internet. If I were lucky to win the LTE PB, I would be a rock star but if not I love my PB.

borceg

Here in my region, government policy doesn't allow us to use powerful wifi routers, so my wifi PB many times is kinda blocked from the world. I really need and want 4G HSPA PlayBook

Flavors

Playbook 4G is sooooo nice !!!

radar_1969

I already use my PB connected to my 9900 to conduct training sessions at my station. A 4G PB would be an awesome addition to the truck, for documenting scenes, notes, and referencing our pre-incident plans and gaining access to haz-mat information, while on scene. It would be a tremendous asset to improve the safety of my members while on scene.

retep2k3

Can't wait to get my hands on this baby

Carmels

Well seeing as I work for one of the largest telecommunications companies in Canada, I would think I'm the most viable choice to receive a free LTE PlayBook. This comment has been left using a 32gb PlayBook. Plus if I did get it, I'd be busy being completely awesome with it! :)

“Think highly of yourself, because the world will take you at your own estimate.”

Holy butt-chunk! I want a free 4G Playbook! If I had one, I wouldn't need clothes!

Only by thinking I could WIN this machine already makes me insanely happy. Please crackberry!!!

crackhead007

Sign me up. Someone said they want the BlackBerry Table?? When did they make a table? :) I assume that had to be a typo but given the emergence of the Windows surface device (formerly a table) I had to check.
