New iPad 2 Vs BlackBerry PlayBook: Release Date Clash

Well we did tell you that the tablet war was going to get messy and it definitely will. Apple had this market pretty much wrapped up but BlackBerry was coming in for a piece of the pie with their PlayBook. Now various sources are saying that the iPad 2 will be released around the same time.

This makes it official PlayBook vs. iPad 2, both were looking to be popular devices but which one will be the market leader? I am thinking that Apple already has a major foothold in the market but lets be honest, everyone is always waiting for the “next thing”.

The reports from T3.com rightly say that the two devices being released within days of each other will cause damaging effects to each others sales as it is going to make people decide between them. As we know Apple has an overwhelming popularity and BlackBerry’s has certainly risen in recent years.

      Why would anyone go for the BlackBerry? The only reason I can think of is those who stubbornly insist that Apple is "evil", as if capitalism was about being morally good or bad. There are those too who will buy BlackBerry simply because they spite Apple. But that's not about which product is more suitable for them. It's about spite.

    the blackberry playbook is eye-punching the Ipad big time. the playbook offers so much more value for money. who would be silly to not go for something great as this?!

    Blackberry will have uh… lets see… 0 units sold at launch… iPad 2 will 12 - 15 million iPad 1G in the installed base… who do you think developers are going to pick? iPad will crush Playbook.

  4. Looking forward to iPad version 2.

    Playbook for sure!! Better security, tighter business integration, more portable. Dual HD Cameras… It has the best of both worlds.

    RIM has a home run with this device.

  7. RIM says:

    it's all about the OS. had RIM had the blackberry 6 on the playbook it would have been crap!

    QNX in the playbook makes the difference and QNX will be the OS into future blackberry phones!

    Expect the playbook to take a big chunk out of ipad sales and also expect a touchscreen phone running QNX, flash support etc to take sales away from the iphone 5!

    RIM is banking on the OS to make the difference and once everyone experiences QNX on the playbook they will want the blackberry device with the same OS ;)

    purchasing QNX is the best move RIM made!!!

    Playbook! The ipad is still a glorified ipod touch. More bang for your buck, better price, and BlackBerry builds solid devices that aren't just toys.

    Playbook FTW

  10. Sorech says:

    I'm surprised many of you are still stuck in Apple's distortion field considering the demo you have all been shown of what the PlayBook is capable of. It's obvious Apple fears the rise and approach of the BlackBerry PlayBook. Now Apple is resorting to such shady tactics of launching on the same date as the competition in hopse of maintaining it's foothold. But all this shows us is they are afraid and should be because people want what is new and the iPad is not new. We have all seen what it can do and now we want something different. The BlackBerry PlayBook is that device and is taking home the win this year.

    iPad all the way!! Apple will definitely win the next battle purly on there ability to keep consumers on edge. And the amount of people that have been waiting for the next iPad is unbelievable so I would say the next iPads sales will go up massively and apple will keep the majority of there Market share.

  12. Patrick says:

    Playbook hands down. I don't need apps; I need function. Jobs claims it's too small. I have news for him: it's not the size that counts! Unless iPad 2 takes three steps forward it will be a step behind the playbook. Enterprise integration and seamless link to my phone? True multitasking and better browsing experience? True flash playing ability? Unless Apple can show me iPad 2 can to those things, and do them well, I would not give the iPad a second thought.

    Playbook all the way!! Never wanted a iPad.

  15. Flea says:

    Bought an iPad, played and finished andgry birds and now its a coaster for my beer other than that if it were softer i could see it as something usefull to wipe myself

    Playbook all the way

  16. Dion says:

    The argument is simple really, for business and corporate IT people it will always be Blackberry and Playbook all the way as these are people which require functions and tools for their business.
    Everyone else will use Ipad because it has "lots" apps to play with, and its "cool" and "trendy". I'm a business IT director and have iphone 3 for personal mobile, but everything else i own is windows and blackberry based (laptops, blackberry's and playbook once its released, windows 7)
    I could never do business or run IT with the apple range but it has its uses for my Mac support staff which are a small team of 4 in an IT department of 100 and support our marketing department for our cool graphics in our intranet and general media.

    its a big world out there to look it in such a simplified manner
