We like that you get a a rapid charging travel adapter, a neoprene case as well as a micro HDMI and a micro USB cable in the box. We don’t like that the case is ugly and you don’t get the rapid charging dock as well.

The BlackBerry Playbook has been generating a great deal of interest here in Malaysia and that’s not really a surprise considering that the BlackBerry brand has a bit of a cult following in this country. There are people out there who would not even consider anything else other than a BlackBerry device. And then there are others who use other devices but will never give up their BBs for things like instant messaging and email.
You can chalk the success of the brand here in Malaysia to the popularity of BlackBerry’s proprietary BlackBerry Messenger service. Or it could be that most, if not all, BlackBerry users prefer a tactile physical keyboard over a virtual replacement. Whatever the reason may be, there are a lot of Malaysians out there that are just waiting to get their hands on the PlayBook.

Head on over to after the jump to find out. This is our first impressions of the BlackBerry PlayBook.
