There are die hard Apple fans and hard core Blackberry followers. The tension between these groups is so thick you could slice it and it is all because of the latest tablet computers that have been developed by these corporate giants; the Blackberry Playbook and the iPad 2. Each of these groups claims that their tablet computer is ‘the best’. With fantastic features on each of these different models, it can be hard pressed to stand on one side or the other. So this epic battle of tablet devices wages on as many seek to answer the question: “Which one is better?
