Blackberry Playbook 64GB with fast charger (Refurb) - £90.88 @ UKDVDR delivered

Found 20th Jun 2013
I do not know much about tablets to be honest. This one is not new or quad core, but some people say it is still a good tablet. I think you can put android on it as an OS, but more research would be required, there are many forums that would help out with this (Google). Hope this might help someone.

Postage is £5.89, but a promo code might be available somewhere.

Real price is £90.88, including delivery, so title and price needs to be changed.

C'mon. A 1 minute search would have pretty much confirmed that you can't.

As i said in the post, "I know nothing........"

Took me less than a minute to find this

Android emulator for running android apps bgr.com/201…02/

It's not Android OS, just an emulator to run android apps, but it could be useful or just buy and Android tablet if thats what you want.

I know I probably came across as a little harsh, but it's just that I hate to see incorrect information in the original post as most readers will just assume it's right. I know you're trying to do the right thing, but if you're not sure it's probably better not to guess at stuff like this. Good tablets though and fine with the operating system they have... but roll on BB10.

Good buy.

These are good little devices for net surfing, music & movie watching. So it's not Android or windows, so what?

Whenever I travel with work I always take mine.

Heat.

im using the playbook right now and must admit i love it for internet browsing especially flash websites, youtube, etc. very solid build and nice front and back camera but no flash. dont get it if u are looking for something to download apps on as its limited. i havent tried running android apps tho, that might be a good option.

Some android apps work, some don't.

It is what it is IMHO.

You can run most/many android apps just by using the side loading

It was supposed to get BB10 which was meant to be a fantastic OS, and was I believe rumoured to run Android Apps.

Alas I believe BB10 has not and will not come to the playbook.

Still good for some at this price for 64gb tablet, but it is a bit outdated.

Screen is good.

Photos/ video - good.

64GB - excellent.

Build quality - excellent..

You get £400 Ipad quality for a lot less

Can anybody confirm if you can run whatsapp on this?

Banned

Sorry not me

I bought a 64gb Playbook a few Months ago, and It's only redeeming features was flash support and a rear camera. It was heavy, slow to load and render web pages, is permanently stuck on a skinned version of Android Gingerbread and has been totally abandoned by RIM. I would avoid these tablets unless you can pick one up for less than £50, as you can pick up used Nexus 7's for around £120.

Heavy as in built solid? As in quality built to last? Slim and light does not always mean a positive.

Yes, it is slow to load.

Web is fine here, my daughter is using it constantly and it is as fast as you would expect, must be you.

Such a good tab, but in desperate need of a software upgrade.

But I've pretty much lost hope of BB10 coming to the playbook now

I had one of these when they first came out of PC World for £129

Infact I had 3, all faulty within 1 week , finally got my money back

Its put me off buying a lower end tab !!

I hope the Acer B1 , I just bought from the Tesco deal for £60 is a more reliable product !!!

Why can't you buy these new anywhere these days? My mate is after one.

You could do that a couple weeks ago - why? are they becoming unavailable? Can't be @rsed to look

I have one of these when they were on at around £80 on here and honestly reckon its the best £80 I spent, I bought the rapid charger for around £20 so thins is great value. It easilt plays all my HD movies etc and I find the OS really easy and intuitive. When the new OS is released it will be even better.

If I didnt already have one, I'd get another one.

Got the better rapid charger for £5 when PCWorld were destocking ;-)

What are you talking about? The Playbook runs on Blackberry's own QNX OS, not Android anything. Massively better interface and far superior multitasking than any other tablet; just a shame about the apps. I haven't used one extensively but it seemed to me that web browsing would be the key strength of this device, along with media.

I only use mine for holidays. I like it a lot but I find the screen far too small.

Banned

You can side load (nearly) any useful Android app into it

It easy to dismiss this as it has many flaws but combined with a BBphone, they make a great combination to both work and play.

If Skype is important to you, save your money but for most tablet uses its great value.

You really cant, most apps just refuse to work.

I loved my bb however silly me killed it with a cheap generic charger from amazon a warning on cheap chargers

This question must be too obvious to ask...
What is the screen size?

Small enough to hold one handed

quick search would imply that it is only 7".

Amazon new £160

Stop posting playbook deals.Are they still not dead yet?Not worth 85p nevermind £85

Almost certainly since you can run whats app on blackberry phones

We've got two and both have performed perfectly.

Great build quality and no problems web surfing.

Yes, they are slow to boot up (this is a definite minus) but if you dont power it down this wont be an issue.

The Blackberry video calling is also great with two playbooks.

has anyone been able to download utorrent etc on it?
