I've had my PB since November 2011 and over all I am very happy with it's functionality especially after the OS 2.0 update. Besides the occasional browser crash (5 or 6 times since I've had it) and I got a headache setting up email and calendar. Other than that things have been running quite well. Oh yeah I did have to have my charger replaced because the locking mechanism that holds the plug in the PB broke, but RIM sent me a rapid charger instead of replacing the one that came with the unit free of charge.
I bought mine two days after OS2 was launched, and have been adding apps and tweaking since. Still just playing with it, and haven't really used it to its full potential yet. Very happy I bought it...especially for the price of a fire!
The playbook has done exactly what I have needed it for since I bought it in October 2011. The enhancements of 2.0 made it better. I am sure that future upgrades will increase the personal value to me.
Are there things that can improve? Absolutely. Being human, we will always want more than what we have and want our devices to do more than they do. The playbook meets my needs for a tablet.
YES, I'm enjoying my PlayBook and OS2.0 as well as the previous OS1.0, I think largely because I didn't set my expectations to a unobtainable level. My PlayBook is operating smooth and fluent, and 99% of the "hiccups" was fixed with a "HARD RESET". It's been running smooth since May......knock on wood (knocking)
Ive only had mine since Monday but being a BB fan I've kept track of it since its release and was on the fence with the price drop and os2 I would have been crazy not too. But to answer your question. Yes, so far its worked the way I've wanted it and expected it too.
Why are the categories so black and white? The PB functions mostly the way I want it to, but not totally, and right now there are no apps that can fix the few remaining shortcomings. But overall, I'm very pleased. I have not responded to the poll because there is no category for my response.
The 64gig is a beast that I command. It also decorated my office by allowing me to use my netbook and laptop as a pair of bookends. This is a true working professional tablet that replaces other devices. There see I didn't even say anything bad about apples new to for once.
