BlackBerry PlayBook Competes with Apple iPad for Battery Life

clock January 27, 2011 00:19 by author Jeremy

It's common knowledge that Apple's iPad comes with a hefty battery life: it's almost magical how it manages to stay alive without being plugged into a wall for so long. And yet RIM (Research In Motion) promises that their BlackBerry PlayBook will be able to compete with the iPad in this particular feat of strength.

"It's going to be equal or greater than the iPad with smaller battery size," says Jeff McDowell, RIM's Senior Vice President of Business Marketing and Alliances.

That's a hefty call to make, but I suppose we'll just have to wait and see if it's true. We saw the PlayBook at CES and were sad to hear it didn't have a release date - and it still doesn't.

Even if it fails to beat the iPad's battery life, they can at least make the claim that they've outlasted my patience. Waiting is hard. :(

iPads sold by AT&T and Verizon

clock October 15, 2010 01:12 by author Jeremy

If our childhood tv shows such as Power Rangers or Voltron have taught us anything, it’s that when you combine several things together, you get one massive, awesome…thing. Such is the case with the latest news of Apple iPad’s being sold by both AT&T and Verizon Wireless.

Apple ATT Verizon Logo

Okay, so maybe we’ll stick with individual logos, just in case. Nonetheless, both AT&T and Verizon Wireless will begin selling the iPad (with their individual prices and plans, of course) on October 28th. So what’s so special about each of them, you may ask?

AT&T’s version of the iPad, which is Wi-Fi + 3G, is being sold for $629 for the 16GB version, $729 for 32GB, and $829 for 64GB. Their no-commitment data plans are coming in at 250MB for $15 or 2GB for $25, and that gives you access to AT&T’s Wi-Fi network.

Meanwhile, since the iPad’s 3G chip doesn’t work on Verizon’s network, Verizon has decided to incorporate the use of the MiFi 2200: a pocket-sized portable modem that will connect up to five WiFi-enabled devices to Verizon’s network. Thanks to its handy internet-bubble-function, you can buy the iPad/MiFi bundles at 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB for $630, $730, and $830, respectively, and still have access to the internet. Or, in case you don’t want the MiFi, iPads can be bought without them from Verizon for $500, $600, and $700 respectively. MiFi bundle customers can get a no-commitment data plan that comes in at 1GB for $20 a month.

MiFi Wireless Internet

And with the iPad now being sold in other retailers like Walmart and Target, this all just leaves one question: not WHEN will you buy one, but WHO will you buy it from?
