Been playing with mine today and have a few personal observations. First of all, I'm so used to NOT having one that it's difficult getting used to it. I ve been swiping, clicking and virtual typing for so long, it seems harder to use the keyboard....and I can't use my charging stand with it .
So, I think for now it's gonna sit on the shelf until it becomes needed and relevant to what I do.

But mine came cheap:
1. Saw PBs on sale for $99 at Staples. Before I realized I wanted one, they were out of stock.
2. Bought 32Gb at The Source for $149 incl leather sleeve.
3. Started to read more about RIM and BB10 etc.
5. Bought 500 RIM stock at $8.33
6. Saw charging stands on sale at Staples for $14.02. But again no stock when I tried to order. Price matched at Best Buy.
7. RIM stock going up! Put a stop loss on at $12.00. So if it kicked in I would have about $1800 to spend on accessories! (Stock closed today at $13.49)
8. Ordered the keyboard/case combo.
9. We will see!

Mine came tonight! I am charging it so that it is good to go on Christmas, then it's getting wrapped and under the tree.
I have been reading what everyone says about the weight. That was part of the discussion when it first came out. On the one hand I wish it was lighter, but at the same time I wouldn't want it to be flimsy. I actually don't see myself carrying it everywhere like I do my PB. I will use it for travel, meetings and projects and to use when I do presentations. It's usual home will probably be on the coffee table to type long messages or when the PB is tethered HDMI.
All I know is that it was a steal of a deal. I still don't know how they could sell for that. I wondered if it would even come. Thanks so much OP for posting about this sweet deal. You really made my Christmas!

My OEM BlackBerry PlayBook Mini Keyboard + case from CostCentral was waiting for me on Dec 19th when I returned from my trip. NO complaints.....I LUV IT. At the price CostCentral offered, I figured I couldn't go wrong and I was right. NICE addition to my PlayBook accessories. It takes some getting use too, but overall its worth it in my book. I'm HAPPY with the OEM mini keyboard.
