Getting a new tablet
I've had my Playbook for almost a year now. While I like everything that it does, my inner geek is yearning to try something new. I'm looking for a tablet that provides a more customizablle UI. I want it to have integrated PIM apps, bit I also liked the idea of bridging to my BB phone. I want the typing experience to be improved. And I'd like to keep the 7" form factor.
I would feel bad putting my Playbook in a drawer when it's a perfectly good functioning tablet right now. Should I get the iPad 3? While it looks enticing, I'm not ready to dump 600.00 on a new device less than a year after I got my Playbook. Should I get the new 7.7" Galaxy tab running ICS? Wow! That one's expensive too!
Hmmmm... I know... I think I'll wait a little bit and pay $0.00 for for one of those new funky Playbook 2.0s! I can't wait for my mew Playbook!Why is it that when your contract commitment is up, the phone you always wanted is now old and the phone you now want won't be out until the next quarter? - Checkout Planet Loser on Channel C003DAB77

With OS 2, it just might feel/look/act like a new tablet.

i would wait and see for a bit, OS 2 should bring around some nice changes on the current PB that will tide you over for awhile.
There should some nice new ICS tabs being released along with the iPad 3 that we dont know much about quite yet.~Matt
