My wife and I have hard feelings toward the lack of BB support for the PB.
We both have units that were purchased in the first days of release.
With only initial OS updates, the PB has fallen well beyond expectations. With NO app support- what app dev's would want to make new up-to-date apps for it?
When BB broke many of the functional links that we had from our OS7 phones to our current OS10 phones, that was the last straw.
Our PB's have long since sat on the shelves, unused.
Our Z10's take care of our present needs, though, we would prefer to have the PB's 7" screen.

JGoodard

I found a new use for mine. When the sleek looking BB classic is released this fall, I can simply link presentation and excel files to the PB and thus utilize the larger screen size for editing. Guess I should have waited 'till now to buy one. The build quality continues to impresses me.

BBMarnel

I have a TON of apps sideloaded on my PlayBooks. With Android app support, there is no reason not to get it at such a low price. I got my 16gb PlayBook when it was 299.99 and later added my 64gb when it plummeted to 199.99 from 699.99. Its a bargain at this price.

Even at that price the playbook isn't worth getting. Worst tablet ever made .

somerandombbusername

At the time of release, I'd say it was the best tablet ever made. Lack of software updates combined with a locked bootloader is what would make this $70 purchase questionable.

Antoniius

That is total bs. I have a playbook and it's flawless and smooth and pretty much no lag. It rivals tables today and it's years old. It the app support was there it would have been awesome.

Posted by Antoniius via my sexy Gold and White Q10.

BB Adict

If it rivals tablets today, why are they almost giving them away for free?

Blackberry always.....

spikesolie

Because it doesn't have app and software support. Hardware wise at the time of release it was awesome. 1gb is what ipads still release with. Dual speakers are amazing, I've dropped it times and times again. Battery life impeccable

Posted via CB10

scalemaster34

Just because other OS can use less than 1GB... doesn't mean that 1GB limit is "enough", as most of us hoping for BB10 on the PlayBook have learned.

The PlayBook was a great device.... but this is 2014 and the PlayBook can not compare to what other newer device provide.

As for Battery Life.... look and see what the life expectancy of a Li-Po battery is from manufacture date. As Wi-Fi PlayBooks have been out of production for almost two years now, I'd say paying $70 for something that might not last another year, isn't all that great of a deal.

kupfernigk

LiPo battery life depends on charge/discharge cycles more than age.
I have an Android tablet the same age as my PB, and the PB is faster and nicer to use. It isn't nearly as good as my wife's Tab 3, but this price is less than a quarter of what we paid for that. I basically use the PB as a media store, and for that it's pretty good.
If you want a cheap tablet that is a bit slow but far from cheap and nasty, it's pretty good. I suspect a preschool grandchild may get mine.

A dead App Store. Video/music store closing. Lag browser, outdated android runtime. It's not even worth $20 now.

Sure it's a cheap video player, email, half arsed surf the web with its chug a lug browser(sorry the 3rd party one is no better) beside it having hdmi out, it's the only good thing.

Better off getting a nexus 7 2nd gen that runs circles around this dinosaur for a few bucks more.

Posted via CB10

Good old crappy Playbook.

It was top even in 2013. For slight browsing via 3rd party browser and listening to music while dropping my daily pressie or shower.

But today??? Outdated. I would buy it for 15 $.

Posted via CB10

FirstBerry101

The palybook still does a lot of things great;

Streams my favorite radio stations
Plays the 20 or so games I bought for it
Has some of my favorite music play lists
Easy access to box
Kobo and kindle

Web browsing is slow, but I still use it to waste time while watching TV. (origami browser)

So is it worth 70 bucks? Depends on your needs!

Best tablet ever made at the time it came out. They would of sold a ton had they made it affordable. Crazy to think that it was priced at or higher than the iPad.

Well built, great sound, forward thinking OS but way to damn expensive. This said, I bought 2 at full price (64 and 32).

Posted via BlackBerry Z30

Poncherelly

Same here:( feel a little ripped off when the price dropped faster than BlackBerry stock prices.

I still use both though. One is for my 3 year old in the car or at the trailer to play his movies. Mine is seeing less time these days but still good for watching movies on. Light storage and media player at this point.

Can't see myself getting another one. Even with a baby on the way, I only see myself giving my son's to my daughter (to be) and I'll give my 64 gig to my son while they both still run.

Once I'm ready for another tablet, I'll shop more carefully and if BlackBerry sells another one, I'll be extra cautious buying one from them as to not get bitten again!

A slow climb to the top is always more rewarding. Sent using my BlackBerry Z10.

LyBerry

Had they gone the distance they said they were going to (before BB10 came out), the would have been able to justify selling it at that price. Nonetheless, I don't think the iPad was worth that money and still don't.

Is this actually a serious article on Crackberry??

I pre-ordered my 64gb Playbook and got it delivered on release day. Despite the promising specs, the lack of any quality apps, the missing basic communication features, the abysmal support and the plummeting price tag have left me feeling cheated well and truly cheated.

Whilst I'm aware a LOT has changed at Blackberry, articles like this just remind me of how much I was screwed over by (the then) RIM.

All I've seen was their were some notes about Blend on the PlayBook... these were written before the PlayBook went EOS. Maybe they release an updated version of the Bridge or a new Blend App that allows all of this content to be viewed on the PlayBook.... and maybe that idea has been scraped.

I bought the Playbook (at the original price) purely for all the potential it had. And it was IMO the only device to truly have multitasking. I refuse to get rid of it because of how much I paid for it. Hopefully one day I'll be able to come back to BB when they release a proper Z10 2.

Ah ah my girlfriends usb is borked. i also had to buy a charger, because she had to get some notes she took on doctogo there. i wasnt thinking of having use of mine, but bbm video doesnt work with my parent z10 and mine (no show of the video icon), but it works fine between our playbooks. Still better having a 7" though to chat and staying mobile.
Playbook is now outdated, and i enjoy my ipad mini instead. At least i have office 365 on it, can use the same hp bluetooth keyboard on it. Still better than on my nexus 7 thanks to the 4/3 or on my bulkier surface rt. prefer the z10 hub for managing the emails though, thanks to the keyboard and its multi-language support.
Sad BlackBerry didnt get it right with the playbook os 1.0 so that a new iteration could have happened. I'm skeptical for the passport... May have taken it when combine to a 7 inch tablet. Hope the next full screen will take the same approach xxwide, to be a tablet replacement, but not sure a 4/3 a la lg vu 3 would be dared.

Wow these comment show up as two whole pages on my double typing Q10. Let's see if we can get it to a couple of more so that our friends in BlackBerry land will realize we still want a tablet that runs BB10 or 11.

Unlike most owners I got my 64gb Playbook after the huge price cut. 299.00 wasn't that big of a deal for 64gb of awesomeness. And bridging it with my Tour took my phone to a whole new level.

Even now as dated and appless as the tablet is it still is a much better music player than my wife's iPad and the iPad is less than a year old. Those sterio speakers are still very good.

If you can't see the value in something like this then it can only be for lack of trying. It doesn't matter that BlackBerry is no longer supporting it. It still plays movies incredibly well, it still video chats, plays music through Neutron and Pacemaker very well and it still takes surprisingly good pictures. It works really well in a vehicle where you can also tap into your vehicle's computer and get all the realtime info. If someone can't see the value for themselves then that's fine but to assume that nobody else will find any value is very small-minded.

Let me tell you guys, if you're looking for a good tablet, this is a great bargain. After 3 years, my PlayBooks are my go to tablets over my Galaxy Tab3 and my iPad Air. The browser is faster than both and multitasking is a breeze. If you're worried about apps, don't be. The Android runtime allows me to sideload many of the big name apps. I have a 16gb for work and a 64gb that I keep at home. I wouldn't trade them over anything on the market today. I hope BlackBerry makes a BB10 Tablet sometime in the future.

Q10 makes for quick web surfing on the clock easier but the PlayBook screen is better for relaxed web surfing. Great sound, camera and video recording for such a compact light-weight tablet size. Print-to-go and Bridge is an unbeatable combination unavailable from "lesser" tablets. I feel safer performing financial transactions and stock trades on this BB OS. If I my PlayBook was broken....I would pick one up today, especially for the price.

As a Playbook owner I wouldn't pay $70 for a brand new one today.

I only use my PB for the occasional presentation when I can use the HDMI port and want to remote control from my phone. Day to day use just isn't there anymore. Too bad we can't hack a port of BB10 with a current Android runtime....

I'd assume these are just being cleared to get rid of old stick and free up shelf space for iToys. Really with Blackberry would have stood solidly behind this tablet, instead of dumping it. Didn't win them any friends that's for sure.

Nope. Too old

This is a joke right? They should be giving those away by now.

Still using mine, which I bought instead of a Kindle Fire. Wouldn't buy another now, though.

BlackBerry could outsource the support of the PlayBook to an approved third party.

This third party could provide updates to the software and offer solutions to problems.

This could be for a limited time until such occasion arises for BlackBerry to produce a successor.

This is all about cost for BlackBerry.

If this were to happen there could be a resurgence of the PlayBook .

The price is low enough for this to happen.

Sadly mine is collecting dust... may consider using it as a product display screen at work...

I own two 16GB wifi only playbooks. They both run just fine and have for the last 3 and a half years. The build quality on these things was incredible. Blackberry: PLEASE Build us a new tablet. I don't want to lose the bridge functionality of file sharing. Windows tablet has its balls in a rubber band, Android is clumsy, and apple is neo-natzi. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BlackBerry give us a 2015 version of a Playbook. I'll wait in line for it!

Well put. My household uses both 64GB's all the time.

No thanks. Too many bad memories. BlackBerry's darkest hour.

I wonder if the people who say the PlayBook is still a high end tablet with no lag have actually tried a modern tablet.

PB was a good first tablet, but it's slow, limited functionality, and end of life. Save your money and get a Nexus 7. Way better tablet.

And use Google stuff?

You can root it and put Ubuntu Touch Tablet OS onto it, if you want the specs, but no Google snooping.

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices

All supported phones and tablets listed:
throw Android off, use real Open Source, all fully "hackable" (modifiable), plus commandline support.

I would have if BlackBerry was still supporting it. It's ridiculous that they continue to support phones older than the PB, but stopped support completely for the PB.

What's the point? I bought one at the last discounted price when there was all the talk about the OS being updated properly to run android. But when the units were shifted suddenly it's 'were not updating it now, we're not bothering with it anymore ' Cheated and conned spring to mind

My daughter uses the YouTube app to watch her princess shows, that frees up the bug screens for the rest of us to use.

Wouldn't buy one for $6.99. I hate my playbook with a passion.

We own two playbooks, but a great Price. Love the Device

The browser of my playbook has crashed from day one. It is sometimes almost impossible to run without it continually closing applications. Loved the form factor and OS but super glitchy.

Ever wiped and reloaded the OS? Worth a try...

I only watch training videos on mine when I'm laying in bed. Great form factor and a great piece of hardware. I also travel with it and use it on long flights to watch movies and play games. Use my Z30 for everything else

Paid full price the PlayBook back in time, promised wonders from BlackBerry for OS2, than dropped us like a piece of sh*t.
This PlayBook will remain a dark stain on BlackBerry's flag, whatever the future will bring. You lost confidence after being fooled once, no need of second time.
Point blank.

My playbook is a few years old and still works great at work and at home. I would like to see some more support for the product, but I understand why BB stopped supporting the Playbook.

Cornelius Puiulet2

BlackBerry needs to bring out some Playbooks with the latest hardware and their latest OS. I'm running Windows 8 on my Dell Venue 8 Pro. I'd switch to BlackBerry PlayBook, but they really need to bring something new to market running OS10

This is not worth it in my mind. I love BlackBerry but the PlayBook doesn't do BlackBerry justice.

I have a 64GB PlayBook that I still use regularly. It has the last OS update. I use it for email, ebooks, browsing, photos and videos, Word and Excel.

It takes beautiful HD video, and is a beautiful piece of hardware.

The whole PlayBook program was mismanaged, but the platform is great. No support means that one day I won't be able to use it, all my stuff is backed up and /or in the cloud.

Omahahaha

Don't believe the hate. This is a very fair price for a great tablet.

BerryWife

Sure, I've not used my PlayBook in a while, but my three kids LOVE watching videos on them and I have yet to find another platform as easy to load videos on. Three kids, three PlayBooks.

Kids also use them to listen to music, browse the Internet and watch YouTube videos :)

Just thinking about this unpolished turd... Uh, I mean Playbook, gives me a headache.

The Playbook's functionality absolutely pales in comparison to cheap Windows, Android, and Apple tablets. At $69.99, you get what you pay for. Bleh.

A Nexus 7 or iPad mini dance circles around the Playbook. Even when the Playbook was introduced, it was not anywhere near as robust software-wise as iOS or Android. Save your money and buy something worthwhile.

What is the point having a Playbook? Z30 works much better.

Plus. Kijiji, you can find them for $50 or less.

I still use and dig my 32 GB PlayBook. As a Web tool and music, photos, etc works great. Bought a Nexus 7 last year and took it back 2 weeks later. I am not a "gamer" so the lack of apps really meant nothing. Played around with my friends iPad 4 a couple months ago and did not like the size. Love the reader mode on Web pages. Just my. 02. At this price a great Web device for a kid and Internet learning sites.

Just got a 64GB from Cash Converters. Second hand it may be, but at £79.99 it will do me as I'm just learning to use computers and tablets. So far everything I know I've learnt on my 9320. I nead a Classic. Roll-on November. Will it be available on TM, on PAYG??

I suppose I could always use another paperweight that changes screens...

If just they (BlackBerry) give us the bridge application with enhanced capabilities to use the PB as a big screen for my Z10, as a mirror or duplicate screen, it will be more than enough for me. Just let the Z10 be the CPU and the PB it's big screen.
