Pretty good deal if you just want a Playbook for yourself!

even if it is a refurb

Agreed, these playbooks are amazing value for money - very, very good build quality - and are supposed to receive the next update of Blackberry OS
Cheapest new is about £99 (if you can find any), so £76 for a refurb isn't too bad - voted hot.

If topcashback tracks then could get it down to £73.95
Whats the OS like on these? Am used to android myself, but the tablets do look nice.

the interface is great (IMO) browser is good and supports flash (can't guarantee that remains?), email client is very good, i also don't suffer much lag between screens either. You can "sideload" many, many apps from Android now.

it's one of the few tablets that supports genuine, proper multitasking too, not the 'fake' way that android and iOS do it
Hot from me, if I hadn't already got a firesale HP Touchpad I'd have one of these at this price.

if you haven't already, stick CM10 on
I've got camera working, flash working, and it's all so much faster and slicker than ICS
the only thing that doesn't want to work as far as I can see is the soft 'Home' button, but that's really not a big deal (and it's still early days as well. hell, we don't even have nightly's yet!)
tis awesome
stunning kit at this price!
voted hot but have got so frustrated trying to login to tcb i have given up.
topcashback probably make it such a pain in the rse to login because of their policy
whereby if you dont login for 3 months your login disappears along with any credit you have.

does anyone know if quidco offer such a rip off policy ?

[quote=tek-monkey]email client is very good...



Agreed, if you just want to use gmail, hotmail or equivalent but using an isp email account may be a different matter. I have tried numerous times, and numerous ways, to get my Virgin Media account working but it just refuses to. I got around it by forwarding all my VM email to gmail.

But other than that, I have to say this tablet is remarkable value for money.

Are you recommending that Playbook owners install CM10 (which is impossible) or hijacking the thread to discuss the HP Touchpad?

hijacking thread
I am an Android/ios guy but I had a go on one of these in Currys and was surprised how well it was put together and how nice the interface felt! For this price is a bargain!
You can't put android os onto a playbook like you can on the HP Touch pad. You can sideload some android apps but they have to be converted to bar files in order for it work on the playbook.
Great price for an internet tablet AND if you know what you're getting into - fewer apps on BB store etc.

HOT from me!

Thanks
Hot

Great price for a nice bit of kit
as a media player, web browser, 5mp camera with real multitasking
unlike android and ios, its a steal
Good price for a budget tablet. Obviously will never be a good choice for those who want a lot of decent apps, but a good all round tablet.
Great tablet, for internet and multitasking it's the best.
Also has hdmi out so good for playing movies or showing pictures on a bigger screen straight from the tablet.
Only downside is the app store, some android apps work but can be a pain the backside if they are not upto date and then again a lot dont work.

Fantastic tablet for the price, know nothing about the company though, got mine last Christmas and have been using it constantly since.

Thanks OP, just got one. Worth a punt at the price.
Hot! but too small for me. I prefer over 9" tab. otherwise I just use my phone to browse internet.
what size of screen is it or have I just missed that from previous posts....which is probably what i've done!
it's a 7 inch screen, got to admit it is a good deal but i prefer the larger screen tablets so i won't bother myself
Great tablet IMO. You can Pick up a 64gb for about 100. (eBay,gum tree)
I had a Touchpad and prefer this size due to its portability..........
Bought a reburbished Tom Tom v2 from Total PDA about 3 or 4 years ago. Bought it in the November as a Christmas present for the mother in law (from a deal on here). When she opened it, turned out it wouldn't work. Contacted Total PDA but because we'd already had it a month they washed their hands of it. They simply weren't interested.

Fortunately Tom Tom took us on but it wasn't until over a year later, and a wild goose chase consisting of several failed returns to Tom Tom's repair centre in the Netherlands, that a friend of mine managed to succesfully diagnose the problem. Turned out it was the map sd card, which came with the device, which was corrupted. Except Tom Tom had always asked us to send the device without any peripherals and as a result the fault was constantly missed each time!

Much messing around caused to us by this company but at the same time this is a very good price for the Playbook. Can't deny I'm still tempted!
Thanks! Ordered, have been looking for one on ebay but at least I get some warranty with this!
For anyone buying this - Amazon are doing the official Blackberry leather journal cover for £9.99 and the leather sleeve for £7
Anyone got one, if so mind letting me know ?

1. Can it do kindle

2. Can it play .avi

Ive got this playbook and i think its wicked. It was a lot better when I had my Blackberry phone as well but it still serves as a really good internet tablet for when youre away from home. I encourage everybody to give it a go but it seems everybody is put off by the lack of apps available for it. I guess i would understand that more had I not had a Blackberry phone for 2 years previous to buying this, so i was already used to that.
Non BB users should give it a go though, for sure. You'd be surprised. The sideloading is so hassle free its unbelievable, but unfrotunately many of the apps fail as really they are for Android smartphones and thus require a data signal to function which of course this tablet does not have. Therefore the lack of Skype is a real downer in my opinion, and RIM really need to sort themselves out.
Best tablet OS, surprisingly still one of the best front and rear facing cameras on a tablet, fantastic screen, flash player built into it, hdmi out @ 1080p, 6-7 hour battery life, superb build quality, and true multitasking.

If this thing had good app support, it would be a market leader in the 7" spectrum. I'd love to say if it had android it would, but sadly, such an operating system could not handle the amount of tweaks necessary to replicate the QNX based OS.

I cant emphasize how good it is having stereo speakers when streaming US shows from sites like putlocker when beached in bed. I have yet to use my iPad Mini for such a thing as the speakers are so bad on it. I have to put up with earphones and nasty wires.

Kindle android app can be sideloaded easy enough.

You may need a media player app to play avi files though. I've never used the built in player though. Downloaded an mkv player with srt subtitle support for £3.49, done me proud ever since.
Is totalpda a reliable website?
what does the RIM stand for? (sorry if im being thick!) and how safes totalpda anyone used the website before?
I loved my Playbook, but since i got an iphone i haven't used it at all. Why?

It could do with more apps, simple as that. It's a really well built tablet. I've used both the ipad and playbook and if it wasn't for the apps i'd pick the playbook. The playbook could do with apps for Sky Go, Twitter, Skype and it definitely needs an update to it's Facebook app. Then a few more games and it would be good to go. The browser on it is great though and if you have a blackberry phone then it is really useful too.
