HTC Flyer vs BlackBerry PlayBook - Software Part 1
Some software comparisons that hopefully help you decide which one you like more.
Seems to be a bit faster
Only orients to a main landscape and a main portrait (where buttons are located)
Slower automatic orientation (by a bit)
Can do automatic rotation on all sides
This rotating roulette HTC Sense UI stuff is neat, and runs at all times
It's also easy to check your apps and add interactive gadgets
Seems a bit more plain when compared to the Flyer
You can add shortcuts to categories (you cannot add your own categories... bummer)
I love the search on the system. I can find my apps or go straight into the browser.
Search allows me to find apps (yes you will eventually add a lot of them)
There's no "search" option on the PlayBook. (maybe in a future update)
I want search because looking for apps can be tedius
With settings you can customize and personalize a lot of the Flyer.
The settings menu looks a bit "cheap" and "unpolished"
The PlayBook has well organized and "clean" setting options
Flyer and PlayBook
Both can do automatic rotation lock by checking on the settings
While the Sense UI roulette seems like multi-tasking it's NOT app multi-tasking.
The PlayBook has the better multi-tasking, it's great stuff.
The Flyer's keyboard seems a bit more "cluttered"
You can access special symbols and numbers by pressing and waiting
There's a vibration feedback that occurs every time you press a key
The keyboard feels extremely "clean"
With a press of a button you can view your symbols and numbers
Support for various languages right on the keyboard
"pop" sounds when key presses occur (volume can be reduced through settings)
