Blackberry Playbook!

25 Apr

So .. i believe you already know that blackberry playbook .. which is the first blackberry tablet .. is launched .. right?!

i got one from x-cite for 219kd .. its not a good price because in the US its sold for around 140kd and even here in Kuwait i found cheaper places .. after i bought it off course 😀

so I’ll start my posts about this little guy with unboxing photos

Since i couldn’t wait until i order it from US .. i end up getting the only version available in Kuwait .. the 16GB.

I liked how the blue is taking over the inner side of the box 🙂

You can see that the box seems bigger than what it needs to be .. alot of empty space .. nothing much .. playbook, pouch, wall charger, USB cable and booklets !! .. NO Headset!!

I will right down a review about the device it self after testing it .. stay tuned .. it will be out sooon 🙂

      i think its to early to get it if you are looking for something more than internet browsing and e-book reading .. it needs some more time and updates to be worth buying .. my opinion!

      i knew it .. when i got mine i was thinking what happened to Jacqui .. i remember she pre-ordered it online .. did she recieve it yet? .. should i call her up telling her STOOOOOOOOOOOOOP .. don’t buy it?!! .. but i believe even if i told you don’t buy it u will .. i think you are the type who like to try things by them self .. just like me :p

      when should we get the Motorola Xoom :p
