This one may be more correct . I say this due to the traffic I see on my site.
I find it sad that the blackberry Playbook didn’t do so well. It’s a beautifully designed tablet. From plastic outerware, to inner hardware to operating system. The playbook had high potential. but of course Blackberry being the strong hold of quality may have held too high of a price while there are so many other options of Tablets and Hybrid Laptops.
I myself will aim for budget, then aim for processing power. Then design. In that exact order. I can’t see myself shopping for high price and assuming that means the electronic equipment will meet my needs.
Good luck in shopping.
