I was in Courts a few days ago.
I saw this attractive tablet and noticed it was from Blackberry and I was immediately intrigued. It was pretty, black, had a nice form factor, nice looking screen and a solid feel. It also had a smaller form factor than my iPad which i liked.
The first function I tried was the camera function, and that was nifty, 2 cameras and fun camera interface….
….. then the problems occurred.
I could not get out of the camera function.
There was no button on the bezel, I tried tapping with 1, 2, 3 and 4 fingers, drawing shapes, multi touch strokes, tapping the device and turning it on and off (that just reset to camera).
Now, I have built my computers since I was a teenager, I have a pletora of techhy devices and many image capturing devices. I have had palmpilots, iphones, ipad, electronic organizers, everything in between AND I could always program the video recorder. I’d like to think I have a good grasp of technology.
However, for this product,I tried every way I could think of and refused to believe that I couldn’t figure it out.
After about 5 minutes, I put it down and walked away It was still in camera mode.
I still dont know how to go back to home and i do allow for a moment of ignorance where i could not figure it out but, suffice to say, I wouldnt recommend it to anybody.
