HTC Flyer vs BlackBerry PlayBook - Speakers (audio quality)

Gear: HTC Flyer, BlackBerry PlayBook, Slate Tablets.

Audio and music is one of the most important things and most tablets with their tiny bodies will get tiny speakers which will give hideous sound.  So how does the Flyer's rear facing speakers do against the PlayBook's front facing speakers?

HTC Flyer
The rear facing speakers sometimes works well on some devices (like the iPad).  But with some devices it just fails.  The Flyer's audio gets loud, but they are very borderline "cracking".  Pair it up with the hideous audio that bounces from surfaces and it's just not that great.  The Flyer gives very sharp audio with minimal bass.  I don't like it.

BB PlayBook
The front facing speakers on the PlayBook deliver very rich and full audio experience.  You could really put them in the category of the iPad level audio quality.  For the audio fanatics the PlayBook will be a good choice.

Both of the systems will do fine if you use headphones.  When it comes to speakers the PlayBook is the clear winner.

Support independent musicians like Ronald Jenkees and xKore (YouTube, Bandcamp, Entropy).  The more popular "swagger" fellows already got "money in the bank".
