The PlayBook is the Biggest Tablet You Can Buy

Most of us know the PlayBook is only 7 inches wide. Yet, I find that its effective screen size is larger than any other tablet available - including the physically larger Xoom and iPad.  How is that?

The PlayBook has User Interface gestures that originate in the margins. These gestures open slide-out context menus with BIG buttons that I can easily hit with my FAT fingers!

Here are some examples of how the PlayBook maximizes screen real estate with "margin gestures":

On other tablets, you need to click tiny links and menus at the edges of the screen.
My fingers never had a chance. 

RIM wins this round, hands down  - I mean - fingers down.
