    While it is clear the OP was just being cynical, it highlights the real problem, which is that people are being brand loyal to a company that seems not to really care much about their needs. Proper IMAP support anyone? Loyalty discounts for people who bought in at $499? Delayed OS, a dearth of apps.

    It just goes on and on. I was also blinded by the underdog status. But I tell you with outsourcing to india and everything else, RIM is sure happy to throw us under the bus. So the OP makes a valid point that we should probably start heeding.

    When I bought mine two months ago, I had no idea that it ran Android apps nor did I know anything about sideloading. I have an Android phone so I was not expecting the Playbook to run anything android. However, since sideloading was easy and I learned how to do it, I sideloaded a few apps that I use daily and am happy with. However, I would have been happy with the Playbook no matter what. If you took those apps off my playbook today, I would still love this tablet. I bought it after doing tons of research and was happy with what it was able to do right out of the box.

    My problem with PB is not so much of the lack of apps, but rather ALL apps are so poorly executed that it really takes fun out of using it.

    I guess we all have differing experiences - I guess my main issue is the lack of Kindle support - which is probably a status thing with the PlayBook and it's OS in the tablet market space.

    As I run Kindle on my Android tablets and an actual Kindle device, having a reasonably current version of Kindle app for the PlayBook is the only way I'm going to be happy reading ebooks on the PlayBook - and as the only version unoffically available to use, is quite a ways behind the current Android and Kindle device version and functionality, it's of no use to me (whispersync support missing / incomplete).

    Other things I'm quite happy with - in fact the native video player I find very good - if only it had bookmark support, it would be perfect for me. Seems to perform well and seems to support more of what I throw at it than MX video on my Android tablets.
