Although under £25 delivered is a good price, they seem to be around this on ebay and at least ebay you can often see the item's condition in the photos, plus ebay give good buyer protection.

Warm, not hot...

ordered, great for in the car. Thanks to the OP for posting the deal. Good stuff.
Worth it just to fill with My Little Pony episodes from Netflix and keep the kids off my iPad.

Afraid not, you can sideload android apps on to it but in true Blackberry style it is locked down, secure and not worth the effort.

Had one 2 years ago at £130, great device but not an Android tablet... runs a custom locked down OS - no Cyanogen.
I've had one of these and they are really very very good for watching films etc on because of the forward facing speakers. I STRONGLY recommend getting a charging stand (mine was about £6 a couple of years ago as the main charging ports is a MicroUSB port and is prone to breaking very easily. The charging stand uses other contacts to charge it so you are not using the MicroUSB port and also holds the tablet at the perfect angle for films.
This is from July 2013 but worth a read if you are deciding the get one. Article is informative and also the user comments.

Honestly, not sure it's worth this any more. Haven't voted.

I had one for my birthday about 3½ years ago. It combined really nicely with the BB6/7 stuff I had then and the OS felt quite snappy. The App Store wasn't great to begin with but has basically been abandoned since BB10 was released (and BB broke their promise and refused to update the Playbook to get it).

I last used it as a video player when I went on holiday last year. I tried to use it as part of a multiscreen setup for the election this year, and it really struggled with streaming (which is a shame, as it used to do it perfectly - I guess it doesn't deal with HTML5 video as well as it did Flash). So, if you're looking at a video player - go for it. If you have even marginal expectations for anything else - forget it.
The Browser in this also supports Flash unlike the iPad and Android tablets. Thus if you use illegal sports streaming sites you can get the right HDMI cable and watch it on your telly.

Personally I wouldnt dream of doing such a thing.

I have one that I use now just as a media player / storage device and have it hooked up to my bluetooth sound system. Great for anything like that with the 64GB storage. No longer much use as a tablet due to the lack of support from RIM.
I bought a new one a few years ago for about £80 - use it for movies on the train and on holidays - for the money it's great lots of storage and drag and drop for files.

Browser is a bit clunky and apps very limited - and I got the premium leather cover from Curry's clearance for 19p!

If you decide how to use it i.e. a movie player it's worth the money.
This is an absolute bargain. One option is to buy two, fill the 64GB with kids films, fit to headrests for kids to watch on long journeys, they can watch different films to each other if they want, use headphones. If like me you have a car Mifi as well, browsing internet is an option.
Seeing this makes me feel all nostalgic. It's like buying an old Power PC Mac. You have no idea why you want one, but you do know that you simply need to buy it. oO

Perfect for Gmail (supports contacts/calendar sync), web browsing and watching offline movies.

Hot!

Amazing picture and sound quality, not great for internet but if you're not in a rush it works well. No android but some useful free apps in the blackberry store. I use mine for watching video and I'm yet to find anything to match the picture and especially the sound quality. 64gb for 25 quid is a no brainer. Some videos play direct but some will need converting. There are many free applications to do this on the net. Battery life is good and I get approx 6 hours from a full charge watching video. The quickest way is to use avidemux, if you read this article there are usefull instruction towards the bottom of the page regarding the use of avidemux.

Can this be used to stream movies from a NAS?





Heat added as it is a good deal for £24. the way to get it is to first enter your code in the top right side - where it says enter your code :-). the website will then refresh and show you the deal price. which is £19 + £4.9 delivery.

If you want to see what use can be made of the tablet, see this website first: forums.crackberry.com/bla…73/

Be aware of the following:
- the browser on the playbook is unsupported and lots of website may not work on it. including youtube.
- the browser is quite slow from today's standards (kids don't like slow browsers)
- though it supports android apps generally, a lot of new apps don't work on it.
- the deal on this website is for a used tablet, may have scratches etc and only a month warrantee.
The Windows XP of the tablet world.

very tempting..... i still use my kindle fire hd despite not running a lot of apps anymore because the speakers and display are great. so while you can get all kinds of stuff from a chinese generic they often cut corners on things like that

I have done this in the past but had to use a media player bought from the (very limited) app store, which cost about a fiver I think. Worked well.

I have to agree (unfortunately).
But a 64GB tablet for £20 seemed very exciting . . . although I can't find a use for it (other than those already mentioned in the link).

Seriously, can anyone think of a good use for these (other than 'watching a film') that could remotely justify £20?

I'm not going to vote either way here but just thought I'd add my tuppence worth. On the plus side a tablet of this spec for under £25 is a great price. It might be a good device if you want a cheap tablet for kids to play with etc.

However as someone who owned these, and paid £160 for the 32gb version once upon a time, they are a very frustrating device to use as an everyday tablet. I persevered with mine for quite a while but eventually admitted defeat and sold it. The web browser is terrible, the app support is no existent and even as an emulator for android apps its very hit and miss. A shame really as the device hardware really did deserve better.
Damn OOS
I too bought one a while back when they were on offer in Currys. It was a good bit of kit. Then "upgraded" to the hudl. Used for video and browsing. Since I bought an iPad 18 months ago, it's been in storage. Was gonna sell it, but if they are selling for that little, hardly worth the effort.

Nice bit of kit though.

​Missus uses her G5 with 8gb ram and an ssd in every day, after the upgrades on a machine that cost me £40 (cheese grater metal model). For Photoshop, Indesign etc it's actually pretty quick still. 2x2GHz G5 cpu's plus an ssd (£40) and a pile of DDR which I had laying about anyway it's a really nice machine,yes you're stuck using old versions of software but they work well enough for what she needs if we get a year where she makes a big profit we'll buy something newer to minimise tax liability but for now it just works nicely.

It chugs a little on intense Web pages but less so than a netbook. Wife has always had Macs she's a Graphic Designer/Web Designer from before they were made cool.

Bought a Playbook for elderly neighbour as I thought a bit of Facebook to keep up with family photos and emails etc will be OK
oos
These are amazing devices. Such a shame they dropped support.... strong enough to be thrown around every where... very loud...... good battery...

How ever as mentioned only really good for media players now.compare it with the price of 64gb mictosd card
wow ugliest website I've seen since '97.

Yes. There is an app for about £2 that does it beautifully.
