More Playbook news

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Endgadget have a great preview of the new Blackberry playbook: http://www.engadget.com/2011/01/06/blackberry-playbook-preview/

It’s looking very good indeed, the screen is crystal clear, smooth transistions and a great look and feel to the UI. Only the camera is a slight disappointment…

There’s not much more we can add, so head over there and take a look. In summary though:

If you can’t tell, we’re very impressed. Overall the device is blazingly fast, comfortable to hold, and intuitive to use.

Are you as excited by this as we are?
