I just picked up the last one at my local The Source because its the last day of their $99 sale and this is the first message I've typed on it. All I can say is "sweet". Patience guys. When you get it you"ll love it. Well worth the wait.
According to TheSource.ca, it was "Exclusive to The Source" and they list the official release date as April 13 so that may explain the wait.
I ordered mine from the Source two weeks ago and it came in today. First typed message and it is (was) well worth the wait. What a wonderful addition to the PlayBook. The instructions aren't very good and I was forever "pushing" the ON/OFF button until I figured out that it slides up to turn it on. Geeeeez.
Nope. Overpriced in comparison to the $200 I paid for the device itself
Early adopter here, bought it regular price. No regrets though, actually proud of myself - no "amaze" is the right word for it, that i've stick it out with the PB, and witness it mature in a way. I still consider this a 499bucks coz its the best one out there
Preordered mine from CB to show the site some love and pay them instead... I'll I've gotten is an "out of stock" page with no info when I called about it a week ago. It was my first purchase from the CB site and honestly I'm not thrilled at all. With delays like this there should be open communication with customers with more info even if there is no info (we're delayed but don't know for how long, etc).
I've been debating for a few days now about cancelling my preorder. I haven't yet but CB is working just like RIM in this case... not a good model to work from with regards to release dates/communication...
