About BlackBerry PlayBook tablets
BlackBerry is better known for smartphones, and launched its first tablet – the PlayBook – in 2011. Since then, the PlayBook has received an operating system (OS) upgrade to make emailing easier.
BlackBerry has focused on a smaller screen size than most tablets, making the PlayBook easier to carry around. It's also considerably cheaper than its rivals, making it a tempting proposition.

BlackBerry PlayBook tablet model guide
The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet comes in three memory sizes. The 16GB model starts the range and is available for less than £200. 32GB and 64GB versions offer more storage space for video and other media.
Although the PlayBook was roughly the same price as the iPad at launch, prices have more than halved since then.
Some tablets costing less than £200 feel plasticky and not particularly well put together. The BlackBerry PlayBook is the opposite – it feels strong with a slightly rubberised back that adds a bit of extra grip.
All three PlayBooks have two cameras – a 3Mp one on the front, and a 5Mp one on the back.
