It was released on April 19, 2011 to a host of anticipating fans, with 50,000 being sold on the first day alone. It was made to go head to head with Apple’s super popular iPad, the king tablet computer at the time of the PlayBook’s launch. Third party accessories like the charger, screen protector and other accessories. It boasts its own operating system (called “BlackBerry Tablet OS”) and system to play Android applications.
But one of the most frequently asked questions about the BlackBerry Playbook is in regards to its entertainment abilities. The Apple iPod systems, such as the iTouch and iPad, have long been known for their entertainment capabilities. Then you also have the iPod Nano, which is able to perform various tasks like video playback and FM radio pausing. The fourth generation iPod Touch (“iTouch”) also has amazing features such as HD video recording, voice control, and Bluetooth support. All iPods have extensive abilities to play, store, and organize music.
The Nintendo 3DS, the long-awaited three-dimensional mobile gaming console was released in March, 2011 to markets outside of Japan. It has a stereoscopic three-dimensional projector that powers its intense displays of visual prominence. The 3DS is backward-compatible with two-dimensional Nintendo DS games, an internet browser, and a virtual console capable of exploring older video games in 3D. With movie and video playback, Internet connections and the ability to game in 3D, Nintendo’s 3DS becomes a tough challenger for the BlackBerry PlayBook to beat.
All three devices feature intuitive, multi-touch displays that emphasize user control over the most minute of things. Yet, there are crucial differences to be pointed out. The BlackBerry PlayBook has slightly shorter display than the Apple iPad, twice its amount of RAM, and is noticeably lighter. Its entertainment capabilities surpass the iPad’s in terms of memory and ability to run complex applications, yet it suffers from a much smaller library of games and videos. Apple’s iPods are highly adaptable and widespread, in spite of how powerful the PlayBook can be.
The 3DS conquers the PlayBook in terms of games, being the console’s primary purpose. The 3DS has an intuitive display and interactive features that make the Nintendo device possibly the best portable entertainment system in the business. That being said, this tablet will not go out without a fight. It has the potential to host just as many interactive applications as the DS, if lacking behind in creativity. Accessories can also cost quite a lot if damaged, leaving many hesitant to invest in it. Still, it may have a bright future ahead of it if it manages to emerge with a library of entertainment similar to that of the iPod and 3DS.
