BlackBerry PlayBook Unboxing - THE TRUTH BEHIND THE PLAYBOOK!

Posted:
in General Discussion edited January 2014
Hello,



I am a developer by day and put together a video unboxing the free PlayBook that I was given for creating an app. ... I was embarrassed for RIM. This thing is not an iPad competitor.



I can go on for days with the issues of this thing.



I worked at RIM for 4 years... I was a developer there. I left the company 3 years ago out of fear they would collapse. I think my predictions are coming true.



Of course the RIM trolls have flooded the video with their comments protecting their beloved BlackBerry brand...



Enjoy the video

    Wise choice. I've had the misfortune of using Blackberry mobiles and didn't like them at all. I guess once you get used to them, the workflow is usable but they are not easy to pick up from scratch. Apple is very good at making a straightforward workflow where actions are logical and predictable and it's hard to explain that on paper - you really have to compare the experiences from one device to another and your Youtube video does exactly that. Very entertaining.

    The whole process took far too long. So I didn't have the patience to finish it.

    Wow. You were absolutely brutal. But quite sad about the PlayBook. So close, yet so far.



    Curious... if you hate it so much why did you make an app for it? Did you think that things would be better while you were making the app?
