The Blackberry PlayBook comes packaged with assorted documentation, the tablet itself, a charger, USB cable and carrying pouch.

Handling

Due to its smallish size, the Blackberry PlayBook isn't terribly difficult to handle, as there are a few ways you can hold it without sacrificing much in the way of ergonomics. The casing on the back has a rubbery coating that makes for easy grip of the 1cm thick tablet, which is nice given its boxy shape.
