RIM announced the BlackBerry PlayBook this week. Anyone planning on using it as your GTD system? If so, what appeals to you about it? If not, how come?

I’m more interested in the Samsung Galaxy Tab because it’s on an Android platform, which is the same platform as my phone.
I am seriously considering the blackberry playbook as part of my G.T.D system since I already use my BB9700 in conjunction with the MS One note platform. I am curious to see how well it integrates with the Task Manager and Notepad and if there will be any other notable features to at to my G.T.D experience.
Still can’t make the switch from a paper system to smartphone yet, since it’s still dirt cheap to use paper and the tactile/kinesthetic nature of moving paper around is still the smoothest, most concrete way for me to know things are getting done.
I finally made the connection between my Outlook system and my iPad with Toodledo, so I won’t be switching anytime soon.
Alissa, how did you make the connection between Outlook and iPad? I use Pocket Informant on iPhone. This includes Toodledo.
I most likely will. Especially since the Play Book will use bluetooth to connect to my blackberry phone and I will not have to have another data plan. Likewise, sharing applications across multiple platforms has a seamless quality to me.
I would wait until the device is actually available to make any plans.
Sticking with the iPad and OmniFocus for iPad.
Yes… sort of. The BlackPad (now Playbook) has actually convinced me to get a Blackberry. I really like the fact that it can be used wifi or tethered to a Blackberry. Therefore, no additional cell bill/dataplan. But the 7-inch screen is a disappointment. I’m inclined to wait until they have a model closer to the iPad’s 10-inch screen. Or a very low price for the 7-inch version.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but iPad is going away from 10in. It seems the market demands a smaller screen for portabilty. I’m in the same boat as you. I want a large format screen that is more like a standard notebook but apparently the market is not on the same page, pun intended.
Actually, good news – Apple will be releasing both versions of the iPad (10″ and 7″) to accommodate both consumer demographics.
The 10″ will cost approx the same price range as it does now. The 7″ will be notably cheaper.
The no-flash support is kind of a dealbreaker for me though. And most likely, it will not have integrated features with any of the Office products — i.e. – OneNote
That is good news. My technical consult must not have had all of the information correct when he told me about apple discontinuing the 10″ version.
Hi Josh.. Can I call you Josh?
Nah, I’m sure your technical consultant is quite well-informed. This is a pretty recent development in the Apple World.
