09/23/2011, After disappointing Q2 results from RIM this year, especially in terms of PlayBook sales, RIM announced that it would be discounting the QNX tablet - but with incentive programs, rebates and deals. However, it looks like retailers in Canada have other plans in mind and have started reducing the price tag of the PlayBook instead. According to reports online, the tablet can now be found for prices as low as $249 – […]
09/08/2011, According to Evernote’s official blog, its popular cloud storage, note-taking, app, is now available for BlackBerry PlayBook tablets. Previously available on other mobile devices that run iOS, Android and Windows Phone 7, Evernote is finally here for the QNX device. Since it’s the first release of the app for the PlayBook, it has most of Evernote’s basic functionalities, and isn’t fully fleshed out like its counterparts yet – but you […]
09/01/2011, Good things come to those who wait – just like the people who didn’t rush out to buy the HP TouchPad, consumers who have been holding out for the BlackBerry PlayBook can rejoice. Best Buy has officially put the QNX tablet on sale, with a significant price cut. The 16GB model will be reduced by $50 to $449.99, while the 32GB model will have its price cut by $50 to […]
08/24/2011, The BlackBerry PlayBook might have been derided 5 ways to Sunday, but that doesn’t mean it has failed like the HP TouchPad – at least you don’t see RIM throwing a firesale of their PlayBook. There is another thing that the PlayBook can do which the TouchPad doesn’t (granted both of them run on different operating systems), and that is the PlayBook can run Android apps in an emulator. Well […]
08/08/2011, When RIM announced that QNX was going to the operating system for its future devices, it was surprising to see the next generation BlackBerry devices to be still running on BlackBerry OS. It probably meant that the operating system wasn’t ready for phones yet, or RIM had no plans to release it so soon. Regardless of what the reason is, it looks like the company has been working on QNX […]
08/03/2011, Before they PlayBook hit the market, RIM officially announced that the tablet will be able to run Android apps. In fact, it was one of the selling points of the tablet – after all, who wouldn’t want a device that was capable of running QNX, BlackBerry Java and Android apps? Exactly. But the tablet was launched – without app compatibility present. There was no confirmation to when it would be […]
06/29/2011, Ever since the BlackBerry PlayBook was announced, there were plenty of rumors flying around hinting at RIM eventually releasing a larger version of the tablet shipping later this year.

06/07/2011, We all know that the BlackBerry PlayBook is one great piece of technology, but its success has been marred mostly due to the lack of apps available for the system, and its dependence on having a BlackBerry phone to tether to. Well, the software side has been slowly improving, and as of today, we’ve got a new update to the tablet’s operating system to make things even better.
05/24/2011, While we know that the BlackBerry PlayBook was taken apart only hours after it went on sale, iFixit’s guide only had text instructions and photographs to guide users through the process – not a very intuitive guide for folks who would rather have videos of someone guiding them through the process. Well, those people are in luck.
05/23/2011, The BlackBerry PlayBook has been out for awhile now, and we seem to be hearing more and more rumors about the tablet being a flop, with high return rates and underwhelming sales. However, we’ve also heard reports about the PlayBook selling as predicted and even doing better than retailers thought it would. In the meantime, RIM has been adamant about the tablet not being a flop, dismissing negative reports as […]
05/04/2011, The folks over at BGR have sources who claim that RIM is already planning on releasing a follow up to its recently released BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. While the tablet hasn’t even been on the market for a month, with its 3G/4G versions yet to make an appearance, the second PlayBook tablet might actually just be a slight update of the PlayBook instead of a second-generation model. The main difference between […]
05/02/2011, [Blackberry World] When the PlayBook first arrived, many people were disappointed with the lack of apps that were available with the device. As mentioned in our PlayBook review, there were no email, calendar, video chat, and even basic apps like Facebook present on the tablet when it arrived. Well it looks like RIM are working hard to address the issue and has announced the Facebook app for the BlackBerry PlayBook.
04/19/2011, The day of the BlackBerry PlayBook has finally arrived. While RIM has missed their end of Q1 2011 deadline promised earlier, RIM delivers the tablet 19 days into the first month of Q2. Since RIM’s market share in the smartphone segment has been declining, the BlackBerry PlayBook could be vital to the success of the company. The BlackBerry PlayBook is a tablet that packs a 7″ 1024 x 600 display, […]
