The rise and rise of the tablet

More and more staff are getting tablets for use at work. For that reason we have Blackberry Playbook on trial for testing.

I was playing with it this morning and was quite impressed. The swiping from off-screen (to access menus or home screen) takes a bit of getting used to but it seems to be a pretty decent device. It is quick and smooth and the menus fairly tidy. The camera was good and there was no problem getting it on our network. It is quite light but doesn't feel flimsy.

I downloaded the telnet client from the app world (Blackberry apps store) but it seems to work with Linux servers and not Cisco devices so it wouldn't be much use for us support staff.
