It's magic. Jk. My guess is that it either has a CMOS battery like a computer; even when the power goes out it will have the same time. Or that just enough battery life keeps it from the on board battery. PLUS it has a good internal clock

The same way all computers did before the internet. Internal clock.
It just does not have a way to confirm that it's correct without connecting to wifi."They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Speaking of clocks... I have a question.
On a recent trip to Europe I took my PB and an older itouch as it was pocket-sized and I used it for navigating the various public transit with apps I'd downloaded to it. Anyway, the clock on the itouch changed with each country I visited while the PB was always stuck on my time back home. I don't recall doing anything special with the itouch (with the settings) so what might be wrong? Is there a setting I need to check off to have it adjust automatically next time on my PB?

Most devices have a setting 'Automatically detect time' where it fetches the local time via WiFi. Not sure if you checked this on the Playbook or if it exists on Playbook's OS.
