Summary: I was looking for a new Playbook, never used. After receiving this box, which was really scratched and kind of messy, I noticed this is not a brand new unit. The plastic covering the screen was all messed up, I am still looking for the earphones, just in case they are magical and will appear suddenly. I am really dissapointed, even though the unit is in mint condition.

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.

Because it uses a Blackberry OS rather than a normal android OS you are very restricted in as much that the only easy source of apps is the fairly limited Blackberry store and even then a number of these are not compatible with the Playbook (but this is made clear on the store or when trying to download - it won't let...
