Users are free to switch the orientation on the tablet between portrait and landscape, and there is a lock on the home screen if users have a preference for one over the other. In this view, you can see the apps on the bottom and toggling between the apps. Users can return to the home screen by sliding upward on the BlackBerry logo at the bottom and hit up the Settings by sliding downward from the top.
Note that the PlayBook will be available with three storage options: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB for $499, $599 and $699 respectively. Pre-orders are being accepted from Best Buy now.
Connectivity isn't bad on the PlayBook: Micro USB and Micro HDMI ports. This can be useful at home for watching movies on the big screen via HDMI or displaying videos at meetings. There's also a play/pause button on the top side of the PlayBook next to volume controls.
