Summary: Blackberry still has a LONG way to go, to work out the bugs with this device, or perhaps it's just the app developers. Either way, unless they abolish it all together, I wouldn't pick another tablet. The storage capacity is perfect. Once they get the apps together, it will be totally perfect.
great tablet...but needs to incorporate popular apps

Summary: This is a wonderful tablet! I really like the bridge! There is one downside, however. The Kindle app is not supported on this device nor many other useful and popular apps. I contacted Blackberry customer service and was coldly advised that I should use other ebook apps and not hold out hope for the Kindle app. Considering I have thousands of dollars worth of periodicals and books on Kindle, including my School Books, I am disenchanted and disappointed with that answer.
Summary: This is a good tablet. Lots of disk space (32GB model) with decent speed running apps. The boot up time is slower then I would like so I tend to leave it powered on. Battery life is good without the wifi enabled. Cons are the heat generated by the device. Its not bad but it is noticeable. If you use a blackberry this is useful to read e-mails using the BB bridge.
Summary: I got the Playbook last year. I have had no problems setting it up. The "blackberry bridge" works great. The screen and display are unbelievable. The operating system is intuitive. ver 2.0 The glass keyboard (I'm typing this on the glass) is the best I've ever used. RIM has done a great job.
