Samsung Galaxy S3, the new Samsung smart phone, has hit the markets recently, which the makers claim is the beast of all mobile phones. The mobile giant had already released Samsung Galaxy S2, which became the wish child of every Android mobile operating system user. The new smart phone Galaxy S3 is simply the successor of the Samsung Galaxy S2, which created so much ripples and rumors in the mobile world even before its release. So, what is hot and what is not in the ‘beast of the mobiles?’ Here we go.

Hardware Design

Samsung has incredibly designed the Samsung Galaxy S3, when compared to its predecessor. The makers have quit the rectangular design and have opted for the oval shaped one, which clearly looks similar to another Samsung Galaxy phone, Samsung Galaxy Nexus. In addition to the change in the look of the phone, the thickness of Galaxy S3 is also considerably less when compared to the S2 model. You can get this phone in two colors. The white colored model is glossy and the blue one is of brush metal type. However, the sensitive touch keys near the edge of the phone may cause inconvenience to the phone users.

Display Screen

The display screen is clearly one of the highlights of the new Samsung Galaxy S3. The reason is that the new Samsung Galaxy phone boasts about a 720 pixel High Definition display. The resolution is as high as 1280 x 720, which would definitely impress any type of users. Just like the Samsung Note and Samsung Nexus, this smart phone too features the AMOLED screen, which is the technology behind the deep onscreen colors. In addition to this, the display is very sharp and your icons may appear crystal onscreen.

Software and Apps

The Samsung Galaxy S3 runs on the latest version of the Android mobile operating system – the Ice Cream Sandwich. However, similar to the Galaxy S2 and Note models, the makers have placed their own interface over the basic operating system, called the TouchWiz. Moreover, the device has some quite good features such as S Beam, which allows the users to send large files easily over the Wi Fi connection. Another feature called the ‘Pop up Play’ allows the users to watch videos instantly while sending texts and so on. Since the OS is Android, there is absolutely no draught for the applications and games.

Performance

The real hero in the Samsung Galaxy S3 specs is its processor. The device features a quad-core processor that can work at an astounding speed of 1.4 GHz. This means that, the users need not have to worry for using High Definition applications and highly graphic configured games. Unlike other Android devices, Galaxy S3 does not show any slag in the performance, when multitasking is at its peak.

Battery Life

With all the powerful features lined up for Samsung Galaxy S3, the battery life should not be high. However, the device sustains for quite a considerable time, which is far superior to its predecessor S2. The makers have also added the feature of Power Saver, which also helps in saving the battery life.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Price

Although it boasts about quite awesome features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is not a smart phone for the common man, as the price is a very premium one above the £500 mark.

Sony Tablet P – An Awesome Dual Touch Screen Tablet from Sony!

sony tablet P is an awesome dual screen tablet

Sony, one of the leading makers of technology products, has come up with a dual screen tablet, which it calls Sony Tablet P. The cool new tablet PC has some exciting features in addition to the dual screen. It is very easy to say that Apple’s iPad editions lead the tablet market with a great market share. However, companies like Samsung, Sony and many others are consistently introducing new innovative tablet PCs in the market to steal the lead from the giant Apple. Sony’s new Tablet P is its new attempt to draw the attention of the entire tablet market and to move ahead of Apple in the race.

Physical Features

The hardware of the new Sony tablet is unique, because of the dual screen feature. However, the device has just one speaker situated on the left edge of the bottom half. The sound it produces is not great and is very mild even when turned on to the maximum level. Hence, music lovers should look out for some good quality headphones if they wish to use this tablet for the purpose of music. However, the camera facility is quite good, as there is a 5 MP rear camera and a 0.5 MP front camera for video chats. The weight of the tablet is just under one pound, exactly, 0.82 pounds. The physical structure of the device is very comfortable to use and it can easily fit into your pockets without any issues.

sony tablet P features cool dual touch screens

Design

The hinge – based design is the mostly used design for the dual screen devices, and Sony Tablet P is not an exception. The tablet has a hinge -based design, which allows you to fold the tablet very easily. You can fold the upper part up to 180 degrees, and, at this position, the tablet almost looks like a single square shaped device. However, there is a bit of gap between the two screens, which may cause a trouble while viewing video contents in full screen mode. The power button is also not in an easy position to access.

sony tablet P is a cool device to use

Software

Sony Tablet P runs on Android operating system, Honeycomb, which is exclusively available for tablets. The OS runs great on both the screens. However, some applications run on only one screen and that definitely annoys the users. Gamers will find this tablet irritating, as many games work only on single screen. A few apps and games run on both the screens, but give an over – stretched look, which is again annoying. However, inbuilt movie and music players, and, inbuilt apps work on both the screens in a great way.

sony tablet P has an exciting design

Performance

The Sony dual screen tablet features dual core TEGRA 2 CPU and 1 GB RAM. However, the storage is just up to 4 GB. The touch feature in this device is incredibly awesome, as it features capacitive touch screens and responds very quickly. While considering the connectivity speed, the tablet performs equally when compared with other Honeycomb tablets.

sony tablet P is very comfortable to carry

Only very few dual screen tablet devices are currently available in the market.  This is the reason why Sony has now introduced a dual screen tablet. Even though Sony Tablet P is better when compared to its dual screen counterparts, the device still has a good number of limitations, which the makers have to sort out to make it to the top of the list against the rivals!

What’s Up with the New iPad 3?

the first look of new iPad

On March 7, the entire technology community was very eager to listen to the words of Apple CEO, Tim Cook, to know about the features of the new iPad, the iPad 3. Just as expected, Tim Cook, on the same day, unveiled the new version of the Apple’s very popular tablet, the iPad. However, he did not mention that it is the third generation of iPad. He simply called the device as ‘new iPad’. While the name did shock many iPad fans, the features of the iPad tablet too shocked both the fans and the critics, as the new tablet carried no big advantage than its previous editions, but very few improvements.

Physical Features

The physical look of the new iPad has no big changes when compared to its previous edition, the iPad 2. It has a 9.7 – inch screen just as the iPad 2 and has single home button, which is the Apple’s unique device design. The device also features an Apple 30 pin dock connector, a headphone jack and a slot for MicroSIM. However, the newer version of iPad weights more than its older versions. It weighs around 650 g, while the iPad 2 weighs only 600g and the first edition weighs only 586g. The increase in weight is clearly a disadvantage. However, the reason for the increase in weight is the increase in the size of the battery. However, its battery life is same as its previous edition.

new iPad is an awesome tablet PC

Display

Display is the one feature where the iPad 3 wins clearly over any other tablet on this earth. The new iPad has a brilliant display with the pixel range of 2048 – by – 1536. The latest iPhone 4S had retina display, which set new display standards in the mobile phones. Similarly, the latest version of iPad has the retina display, which the iPad 2 lacks. It shows the colors and texts in a spectacular way. It is a never – before – experienced display that very clearly displays even very small texts with superb clarity. Another great thing is the High Definition feature. Yes! Now you can call simply the new version of iPad as ‘iPad HD’. Apple says it has the HD feature that is equal to the clarity of a real HD TV!

new ipad has stunning display features

Performance

Regarding the performance, the new iPad features an A5X processor with 1 GHz capacity. The older version had an A5 processor. To be honest, the new version and the old version has no difference in performance, but the A5X processor in the new device allows it to handle the increased display features efficiently without affecting the basic performance. The memory is 1GB, which is same as in its previous editions.

the new ipad is a cool device for tablet lovers

Connectivity and Price

Similar to the older versions of the tablet, the iPad 3 supports WiFi connectivity and an optional 4G LTE connectivity feature. The iPad 3 cost differs based on the storage capacity and the connectivity features. The WiFi only models are available from $499 to $699, while the models that support 4G LTE connectivity feature comes at a price of $629 to $829.

new ipad is really amazing with HD feature

Apple announced the iPad 3 release date which was March 16, last Friday. To buy iPad 3, people, as usual, queued outside the Apple stores. The shipping too is going on in full form. The only advantage of the new version of iPad is the HD feature and the retina display. The new iPad, unofficially dubbed as the iPad 3, thus clearly has no big innovations in both the hardware level and in the user experience, but people still keep flooding the Apple stores to get their hands on the new tablet, which clearly shows the brand value of Apple.

A Helmet Cam to Enable Capturing Great Skiing Moments!

Awesome helmet cam to capture skiing moments

Contour Roam

A helmet camera will be very useful, if it has some wide – angle coverage lens. Contour Roam sticks to this fact and does possess an ultra wide – angle coverage lens. Its lens coverage is as high as 170 degrees, which is almost everything between your left hand and the right hand. You can shoot even 1080p quality of videos using a contour roam. The resolution number is also a great one, which is 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. The rate of shooting is 30 frames per second.

contour roam - a simple helmet cam for easy use

Pros:

Contour Roam helmet cam has high definition video shooting. However, this helmet camera HD is quite simple to use and it is clearly one of its pros. The camera is also a waterproof one, providing protection up to one meter. The price of Contour Roam is also cheaper than GoPro by the margin of $100.

Cons:

There is a reason why Contour Roam helmet camera is available at a cheaper price. If you want to take pictures, you should adjust the settings to change it to the picture mode, when you connect it with you PC. This is one of the big limitations of Contour Roam. In addition to this, this helmet cam features only two mounts with fewer offerings.

GoPro HD Hero 2 Outdoor Edition

The GoPro helmet camera is able to produce good skiing videos with sharper and brighter colors. Just like the Contour Roam, the lens coverage angle is 170 degrees and the resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels. GoPro can also make HD videos with 1080p quality without any issues. It also works a bit faster than Counter Roam in a few settings, where users can take almost 10 pictures per second.

GoPro is a stunning helmet cam

Pros:

Unlike Contour Roam, GoPro users can use many types of mounts to take pictures and videos that suit to their tastes very easily. The users can also take snaps with varying dimensions up to 11 Megapixels. The rate of shooting too is a bit higher than the usual 30 frames per second. It is also easy to switch between the camera mode and the video mode in this helmet cam.

Cons:

GoPro is not a waterproof helmet camera. You have to use a separate waterproof casing to protect it. If you are a new user, you will find it difficult to configure the settings very quickly. After all, GoPro comes at a high price range.

helmet cam will immortalize you skiing moments

If you love simplicity, Contour Roam is the best helmet camera for you. Else, if you love to stick to the market leader, GoPro should be your choice. The choice is yours, but with a helmet cam, surely you can do some cool new stuff when you are skiing!

Is Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 better than iPad 2?

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 faces a tough challenge from iPad 2

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, the new tablet from Samsung, is the bet for all Android lovers against Apple’s iPad 2. As both the leading computing and mobile companies gear up to battle out each other with their new gadgets, the war intensifies every day. Tablet, or, for a common person, the mobile form of a computer, is the hottest electronic gadget in today’s world. The widespread success of Apple’s iPad has kindled every other electronic company to produce their own range of tablets to keep up to the pace of the electronic gadgets’ market. Here is the interesting story that tells you whether Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1 has the things really to beat iPad 2 in the tablet market.

Processor and Performance

Processor and performance analysis is the primary thing to check out the efficiency and performance of any gadget. Considering iPad2, it comes with 1 GHz Dual Core Apple A5 processor. The device runs on iOS 4.3 operating system. The dual core factor in the processor of iPad 2 tells us clearly that the device guarantees awesome speed without sacrificing the performance. On the other hand, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a processor that can match up the Apple’s product easily. The Samsung tablet has a 1 GHz Dual Core Cortex-A9 processor. It means that this device also features the Dual Core technology, which can promise the user stunning speed without compromising an efficient performance. Thus, both the tablets almost stand equal in the processor and performance arena although Galaxy Tab has a slight edge over its competitor.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 equals iPad 2 in performance

Display and Design

In the section of display, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 clearly wins over the Apple’s product with ease. This is because of the fact that Apple’s iPad 2 consists of a 9.7 LED-backlit display, whereas, Galaxy Tab features a 10.1 inch LED display, which is marginally greater than the iPad 2. In addition to this, the Galaxy Tab has a stunning resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, which is again higher than the iPad 2, which has a slightly less resolution of just 1024 x 768 pixels.  Thus, Samsung’s tablet clearly goes ahead of Apple’s in the consideration of display. However, iPad 2 wins over the Samsung Galaxy Tab in design with its stupendous stylish and sleek look.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a better display than iPad 2

Features

Even though both the devices stand at the same place when we consider the features like GPRS, GPS, EDGE and Micro USB Support, Samsung’s product races ahead of the Apple’s, in the section of camera specifications. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 features a rear camera of 3 MP with Auto Flash LED of 720 Pixels and a front camera of 2 Mega Pixel. The iPad 2 features a rear camera of Fixed Focus 720 Pixels specification, but just with 0.3 Mega Pixels. Even the front camera too has just 0.2 Mega Pixels, which is well short of Samsung Tab’s specification number.

iPad 2 has rich applications than Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Applications

Application is purely the thing in which Apple dominates over Samsung. The users of iPad 2 can find it easy to get more useful applications than the users of Galaxy Tab. Thus, it is clear that Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 edges over the Apple’s product in performance and efficiency, but fails to match up with it in design and availability of applications!

Playstation phone – Extremely cool gaming phone

The mythical Sony PlayStation Phone has now become a reality as the company prepares to launch this bad boy in March, 2011. This cool gaming phone is called Xperia Play and it will run on Android Gingerbread O.S. The Sony PlayStation gaming console is one of the most iconic gaming platforms in the world. Over the years they have presented the gamers of the world with millions of hours of pure fun and bliss. It has revolutionized video games like no other company. Now Sony is back ready to rock the mobile phone industry.

The Playstation phone looks quite similar to a PSP Go in its core design. The phone might not have the most cutting edge design out of all the gaming phones but at the same time it is no ugly device either. The design is quite simplistic in nature but maybe the bland exterior will be to mask the beast inside. It comes with a black and silver theme where the body has a nice glossy black color whereas the gaming pad has a silvery appearance. A white option is also available. The gaming phone will also sport a gorgeous 4-inch Bravia touch screen with a resolution of 854×480 pixels. The phone will also have a slide out gaming pad containing the iconic Playstation control buttons.

Over the past few months, a lot of speculation had passes regarding a possible Playstation phone in the making. All that speculation has now been confirmed to be true as the world anticipates the launch of this great device this March. The gaming phone also comes with two cameras, a slide out Playstation controls, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor with MicroSD card support. The MicroSD card will allow users to store up to 32 GB of game information. The camera is said to be a 5 megapixel one and the device is said to sport 512 MB RAM and 1GB of ROM. It even has a multitouch touchpad in the middle of the gaming control pad.

Along with the Playstation phone, Sony has also expressed an interest in becoming a major player in the Android market. Therefore one would be safe to assume that some kick ass games will follow. Many franchises have already partnered with Sony to bring the best games to the Xperia Play. On one hand you have a decent phone, on the other you have a gaming beast waiting to unleash its fury. All you have to do is slide the gaming pad out and let the Playstation phone do what it does best.

Panasonic TX-P65VT20B- The Best 3DTV out there

The all new panasonic TX-01

The Panasonic TX-P65VT20B is quite simply one of the best 3D TVs available in the market today. The Panasonic 3D plasma TV is also the company’s first 3D TV which only makes its accomplishment that much wondrous. 3D is now right up there with other innovative products like touch screen LCDs. Ever since Avatar made its big entry to world cinemas everywhere, the need for 3D has sky rocketed. Everything from mobiles to television jumped on to the whole 3D bandwagon. But many failed miserably. Their attempt at capitalizing on the latest trend went right down the tube because they didn’t make a quality product. But all that changed with the entry of TVs like this one.

The Panasonic TX-P65VT20B offers both freeview HD and freesat tuners to get you a lot of non subscription HD channels. The interface is simple and quite ugly to look at. But it is extremely simple to navigate through the various options. One of the bad points about this set is that there are ads running in the channel listing space. These ads cannot be disabled and can be quite an inconvenience at times. But if you can bear the flashing ads, you won’t find a better Panasonic 3D plasma TV or any 3D TV for that matter.

Amazing 3D TV - panasonic TX-02

Another cool feature of the Panasonic TX-P65VT20B is that it is DNLA compliant. It comes with an Ethernet port or an optional wireless dongle to play content from other networked devices. It also supports various video file formats like AVI, HD MKVs and DiVX whereas only the Mp3 format will be recognized for music files. It also provides you the ability to go online to Panasonic’s Viera Cast service portal.

Enjoy the real experience of 3D in panasonic TX-01

The Panasonic TX-P65VT20B is extremely stylish and will go with pretty much any décor you can throw at it. It also has a nice brown finish which lends a certain air of sophistication. The appearance along with its features easily makes it the best Panasonic 3D plasma TV to date. The image quality is just brilliant but you will need to play around with the settings to utilize its full potential as the standard setting isn’t that great. Skin tones look great on this TV and the colors have a very natural feel to them.

Entertainment guaranteed with panasonic TX-01

The 3D performance of the Panasonic TX-P65VT20B is easily the best in the market today. The screen also has a 600Hz refresh rate which lessens the amount of ghosting. 3D games played on this telly offer an unparalleled sense of virtual reality as you get completely immersed into the visual and audio aspects of the game world. Along with the set you also get two pairs of active shutter glasses. While they are not exactly the pinnacle of comfortability, they do look very futuristic. The Panasonic TX-P65VT20B comes at a whopping price of 4,800 Pounds but considering the unparalleled 3D viewing experience, it is quite worth it.

Projector Phone- What Can Be More Unique?

Projector_Phone5

The Projector phone is the latest innovation the world of cell phones today. These phones, as their name suggests act as a mini projector for your various viewing needs. It is actually quite fascinating to see how cell phones have evolved over the years. From being bulky and having only one or two features to being extremely portable and having hundreds of interesting features, the cell phone has grown like no other product. Today, you get cell phones with touch screens, music players, web browsers and access. And now finally, you can view your favorite videos using this latest technology.

The projector phone comes with a built in mechanism and the necessary software to project your favorite videos and images on to larger surfaces for better viewing. There are four main parts which make up this fascinating process. They are the laser lighting supply, electronics, scanning mirror and combiner optic. First, the video or images are converted into electric signals. Then the laser lighting supply throws a laser on to these signals with different colors. The combiner optic then combines the various light paths into a single unified path and copies all the images and videos to finally project them on to a surface.

The fascinating thing about the projector phone is that it confines the entire projecting system into a small area inside. This new feature doesn’t make the cell phone unusually bulky. Also this exciting feature has brought so many different and unique aspects as far as usage is concerned. The mini projector can be used to showcase your favorite images and videos on a larger display item like a wall. No more itsy-bitsy images, now you can show off your favorite pictures to family and friends in a larger than life way.

A projector phone also has many advantages for the user. First is of course, the ability to play mobile games on larger displays. You won’t have to squint your eyes to play your favorite games anymore, get ready to play PlayStation or X-Box style. Also, when you view images on normal cell phones, there are various viewing restrictions which completely vanish when using the mini projector function in the cell phone. It is important to note that these phones offer the best viewing quality only in dark rooms.

While the cost of a projector phone may be more than the normal ones, it is areasonable price considering the features you’re getting with it. These phones obviously will not be better than actual projectors, but at the same time the quality they offer isn’t bad either. Many different companies are bringing out their own models and so you have a number of incredible options to choose from. One wonders what great innovation lies ahead for cell phones after the projector phone.

Motorola Zoom Tablet- Will It Be the New King?

Motorola recently released the Motorola Zoom tablet. Ever since the iPad came into being many companies have flooded the markets with their own unique tablets. But so far only a few have really stood out. This zoom tablet has been made to dethrone the current king of tablets, the Apple iPad. Or at least that’s what the company hopes for. But can this tablet successfulltake over the title from Apple? Even though it might be too early to tell, it sure is a product that stands out from the many others.

The Motorola Zoom has a sturdy build and is as strong as the iPad in its construction. The Zoom tablet however is bigger than the iPad. It has a 10.1 inch widescreen display and a high resolution of 1280×800 which is actually a little better than its Apple counterpart which only has a resolution of 1024×768 pixels. The large screen improves the viewing experience by a noticeable amount, but ultimately is subject to personal preferences. It also has got a rubberized back to provide extra grip and to prevent any slippage.

The Motorola Zoom runs on the 1 GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core processor and comes with 1GB DDR2 RAM. It also has a pretty good internal storage space of 32 GB and dual facing cameras with duel LED flash. The dual facing cameras are another feature in which the zoom tablet betters the iPad. It has a 2 MP camera in the front and a 5 MP camera on the rear side. Apart from having a 32 GB in built memory, this tablet also has a micro SD slot that can support an additional 32 GB of storage space. It also has flash support which the iPad sadly doesn’t have.

The Motorola Zoom runs on the new Android Honeycomb operating system and has a slight advantage over others as this new O.S is specifically designed for tablets. It also boasts a very attractive user interface. The various menus are quite snappy and screen rotation function is fast and flawless. Another exciting feature of the new O.S is that the Home, Menu and Back buttons are placed on the lower left side of the software interface. This makes navigation more convenient and easier when the tablet is tilted or held vertically. You can also get Honeycomb apps which may not be as diversified as iPad apps , but will also be available in widescreen modes to suit both tablets and other smartphones.

There are also some great accessories for the Zoom tablet to improve the user experience. There is the leather case that can also be used as a stand, a standard dock for charging and display purposes and a speaker HD dock. The speaker HD dock has three USB ports, HDMI output and built in speakers. The tablet also has an impressive battery life of about 10 hours. With so many different features, the Motorola Zoom can certainly turn out to be an iPad killer, but for its steep price of $799.99.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab vs. Apple iPad- Which Reigns Supreme?

Galaxy Tab VS Apple iPad1

The Apple iPad revolutionized the concept of tablet computing and managed to satisfy a large number of eager customers all around the world. The iPad managed to get many things which went wrong in other tablets right and introduced a more user friendly product. But it wasn’t long before other companies started flocking in to grab this exciting new market. Samsung introduced the Galaxy Tablet to go head on with the current king of tablet computing products. There are several factors to consider when looking for the winner in the Galaxy Tab vs iPad battle.

When you look at the size of both of these products it is rather easy to see which one is more comfortable to carry around. The Samsung Galaxy Tab only weighs about 0.84 pounds making it a very convenient product to use on the go. Both the products display pretty much the same processing speeds as they use the same A8 Cortex CPU for their processing needs. But the iPad manages to beat the Galaxy Tab as far as the LCD screens are concerned as it not only has a comfortable 9.7 inch span but it also provides higher resolution.

As far as the apps are concerned, Apple wins hands down as there are currently over 25,000 apps for the iPad. But this victory s only short felt as the Samsung Galaxy Tab managed to come up with an ingenious feature which is a 3 megapixel camera. The camera can be used for recording video and to capture still photographs. Moreover it can also be used for videoconferencing which adds extra points to Samsung when comparing the Galaxy Tab vs iPad.

Battery life is also a very important factor to consider especially when the system is used for mobile purposes. The iPad can offer about ten hours of battery life whereas the Galaxy Tab can only offer seven hours. When comparing the functionality of internet connectivity in both of the products, the iPad emerges as the winner. The Android browser in the Galaxy Tab sometimes tends to lag especially when the web pages get more crowded. The iPad offers smooth sailing when browsing.

Media support is something that most of us look for when looking for a tablet device. Though the legacy of Apple in the music and video department is incomparable, it doesn’t support flash content or certain video formats like DivX, Xvid, WMV etc. The advantage is in Samsung’s hands here as it easily supports all of the above features and more. Thus there is no need for converting video into suitable formats like in the iPad. In the end choosing the winner in the Galaxy Tab vs iPad battle is hard as both products are certainly sound choices. But at the moment the Apple iPad wins by a small margin due to the high efficiency of its software and its price.

Blackberry Playbook 4G – Specs, Features & Review

The new Blackberry Playbook tablet has a 7 inch LCD touch screen with a 1GHz dual core processor, a new O.S from blackberry, 1 GB of RAM and up to 64 GB of storage capacity. This new Playbook 4G model is the first Blackberry Playbook model to have wide area wireless connectivity including 4G. It also featured dual cameras that can be used capturing video or video conferencing purposes. The new 4G model will be released in the early quarter of 2011 all though most the features and specs will be the same as the regular one.

The 7 inch touch screen of the Blackberry Playbook looks quite brilliant with the display having crisp and bright colors. The performance of the touch screen is excellent. When using it, it feels very responsive with fast and smooth movements. Everything seems to glide along with the motion of the fingersEven though one might feel that the size of the screen could have been a little more, it is more than sufficient. You can get the Blackberry Playbook 4G in three different storage capacities of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB.

The dual core processor of the Blackberry Playbook 4G model makes the performance of the machine quite snappy. So as far as the performance part of this magnificent machine goes, you can be quite happy to know that you got quite a stable machine. Even though one might wish it to be the bigger, the size of the playbook is rather apt as it is fits nicely in pockets and suited for travelling purposes.

The Blackberry Playbook even has the perfect weight where it isn’t too heavy or too light. It has a rubber touch finish in the back side to provide better grip. Blackberries are quite iconic in having lots of little buttons on their products but this product does not need them and hence doesn’t have them. The Blackberry Playbook can even be synced with another blackberry device via Bluetooth for accessing information or files like important documents.

The new O.S is also very interesting. It actually doesn’t look like a standard blackberry product at first glance. The user interface is quite simple in design but it will take some time to go through the various apps and features. The price of the Blackberry Playbook 4G tablet hasn’t been confirmed yet but it is estimated to be around $500.
