Number 4...and counting
ok, I know there's been other threads on this line but thought id share.
regardless of the doom and gloom prophets announcing the demise of the pb (which doesn't matter as according to the mayans the world will end before BB10 anyway), my extended family has grown in love for the pb, with more sales taking place yesterday.
yesterday it was one for both my in laws, for different purposes after they have been wowed by mine. father in law the 'proud' owner of a xoom (ahem).
funny thing was they are still flying off the shelves at pcworld for £129, but the sales guy wanted to demo it for my, until I explained more about qnx than he knew.
doom and gloom or not they are multiplyng roung here and the message is growing!I own a Playbook - who says men can't multitask!

I can trace at least 10 Plabook since purchasing one in october last year and at £129 for 64 Gb its almost a no braininer! I almost feel that I should stand in PC world and tell all the Mugs forking out much more cash for other systems what they could have for so little money!

Yeah.. We now have 5 in the house.. And since I've been bringing mine into work and "showing it off", there's been at least 9 or 10 that I know of that people have picked up for themselves or love ones. What's crazy is that many of them own iphones and were down on the capabilities of the pb until they got them in their hands.
What's really too bad is that Playbooks have been sold out a lot. If the inventory stock wasn't in that position I believe much more could have been sold. More sold.. means less excuses for developers to make apps for...

Since I bought my playbook a year ago, I have used it every single day for both work and leisure. I even used it at the hospital last week to make a video of my unborn baby's first ultrasound! I know that 6 pb's have been purchased after seeing me use mine, and I even bought a second 64 gig for myself so I now have one for work and one for all my nerd stuff at home. My wife asked me what I want for christmas and I told her I want another playbook. Is that wrong? The only way I can see myself not using my pb's is if RIM does end up releasing the much rumored 10 inch tablet or lap top replacement we hear about. 53 days until BB10!Chapple13

I have about 16 people on my video chat list. 12 of them are family and friends who didn't own PlayBooks last spring. I'd say a good half are recent purchases, say within the last three months. Price has definitely been a factor but at the end of the day the quality experience tops price as we're talking about very satisfied owners.
