    Question Do you have more than one PlayBook?

    Hello,

    Was just wondering iif some of you had more than one PlayBook, and if the answer is yes, why?
    I found brand new 64GB PlayBooks for just €179, I'm getting itchy to get another one (already have a 64GB and I LOVE IT

    I have a 16GB and a 64GB. I also gave away 2 16gbs as gifts. That's personal. I also issued them to all of my sales staff of 6.
    For personal use I keep the 16 on my work desk on a dock for quickie stuff and bathroom. The 64 is my on the go unit. It's always with me when out and about.

    I started with a 16gb model then got a 64 gig model for more storage space. My reasoning was a mix between work and play. The 16gb strictly for work with work related programs and data that I let no handle or use.

    The 64gb model is my personal unit that I load with tons of movies games and tv shows pics books etc, and not worry letting my teenager and friends play around with.

    Now I'm contemplating the 32gb 4g model.
    But the reasoning was more storage space and a division between business and personal.

    We have two 32G PB's in our house. One I use for work, emails, documents, etc. The other we take out with us and use for pix and general use stuff. There are (now) two iPads received at Christmas from family members. Those are sloooowly being broken in although my better half likes the keyboard better on hers than the PB. Me? Still using the PB!

    16g and 64g, bought my 16g first then less than a year later the price dropped to 199. For the 64g more space great deal, and I use both and keep them both up to date. The PB is an excellent tablet and there gonna be awhile lot more after BB10.

    Got a 32 originally, then upgraded to a 64 so I can give the original to a friend. Got another two 16s after that. Lost the 64, so replaced it with another two 64s. Wife's friend is currently test driving one of the 64s. My kids just won't let me have any peace with my unit, so they now all have one. Also got another 10 (32s and 64s) through a grant to test drive on the local students (I'm managing the pilot, so feels like the units are like mine since I service them quarterly). The hope is the students will eventually go BB, but it's still too early to tell. I need another two units just so all my kids will have their own eventually. Wife is the lone holdout, but hopefully not for long. With the current prices, it's hard to beat the hardware. For what we use it for (music, games, entertainment, communications) we're not missing out much on anything available on other platforms.

    We have 3 32GB playbooks now. I got them for 2 of my kids for xmas. Lots of bang for the $150 for them with sideloading. It is their first tablet and they are very happy.

    I have two professional-use BlackBerry PlayBooks, one personal-use BlackBerry PlayBook, and two spare never activated BlackBerry PlayBooks. I only paid full-price for the first tablet which I pre-ordered ahead of the 19 April 2011 launch of the BlackBerry PlayBook.

    If the primary reason you bought the BlackBerry PlayBooks was to run Google Android applications why not buy a tablet running Google Android natively?

    It's not the primary purpose but it certainly enhances the usability. it's also cheaper than the alternatives. We have an Asus Nexus 7 as well which is nice but was twice the cost.

    as I bought a 64gb when they were first reduced in the UK.....

    bought another 64gb for my 6 yr old son for xmas...

    and in this time I have managed to persuade 3 other members of my wider family to get one.

    I don't like anyone in this thread (just kidding), I only have one 32gb PlayBook, but seriously thinking about getting another PlayBook. Trying to wait on BB10 to see what the cost is going to be after phone and accessory purchase.

    Edit; its everyones fault in this thread. I've decided to get another 32gb. Ordered one today, you only live once. It will come in handy in so many ways

    I got 3 X 64G. Got the first one when it was half of original price and still at OS 1.something. Couldn't resist getting another one when it got knock down to $199. Saw a bundle deal with keyboard/case and a rapid charger. Got to have those accessories. Dont even ask how many rapid chargers and charging docks I had purchase since. To be honest, I got my nephew in mind when I bought the third one. So I'm giving it to him in a few weeks when I visit, We'll see if the wife will toss her Samsung Galaxy aside and take over his Playbook. Already email him to download DeskTop Manager and join the crackberry.com. The basic essentials of owning a Playbook.

    yep - 2 x 64Gb

    the original, and a contingency back-up PB just in case my primary PB is lost, damaged or dies.... (at c.£104+VAT, it seemed silly not to buy a backup)

    have also given a couple of 64Gb's away as pressies

    PlayBook 64Gb - 2.1.0.1314 (and another spare PB 64Gb)
    and a new Doro PhoneEasy 622 for everytime the new Q10/EE4G knacks up.... (btw Doro make great simple big-button handsets for seniors and for those of us with reduced feeling in our fingertips.....)

    Default Re: Do you have more than one PlayBook?

    I have a 16GB from over a year ago (when it was $199) and purchased a 32GB for my wife in November (when it was $129). Watching more movies on mine, so a 64GB would come in handy for the storage or a 4G unit instead of bridging to my sometimes slow 9800. Hopefully the Z10/BB10 will take care of mobile connection issues.

    I've had a 64 gig since launch and love it but I can't see any reason to buy two, even at current prices...

    I only use one myself but...

    Our National Sales Manager got one at launch and I have been tasked with its keeping since I also represent the IT arena. I bought my 16GB model back in November and ultimately gave than to my daughter for her birthday when I upgraded to a 64GB model.

    Yes, I have 2, one 32 Gb PlayBook that I bought full price at launch. I have used it every day since. I then bought my wife a 32 Gb PB about 6 months later, cause she was using mine all the time and my usage was cut in half. It was about $200 cheaper. Then, I bought myself another one about 6 months ago, a 64 Gb PB with a BB keyboard for $199 + $99. Cheap.

    My 1st, the 32 Gb PB is still used daily for work and for personal use. My 2nd, the 64 Gb PB is for storing music and photos. My wife still uses her 32 Gb PB.
