I'm a 100% n00B to PB, ordered a 64 gig PB yesterday, which arrives today.
Any tips and tricks?
And anything to watch out for?

Welcome, and congrats on getting a Playbook - shows you're a discerning user! Hopefully will give you many years of enjoyment.
As far as tips and tricks go, see the 'Sticky' thread at the top of the Playbook Forum.
You'll hear loads of talk about BB10 coming to the Playbook. My advice to you is to forget about that for now. It will come at some point, but no-one know when, so its best to just not worry about it for now, and get excited when an announcement is made.

You can always sideload android apps to ur PB. HOWEVER, they may affect your PB's performance and some of them will work and some will not. The easiest way to sideload android apps is using a chrome's plugin and a source of .bar files can be found here although not all of them work. But you can always download the .apk files (android apps) and convert them to .bar files (PB apps) by using this online converter and see if it works.

Welcome to the family and enjoy your new baby in the very best of health and good fortune.
I would not know what your purpose and goal would be for your PlayBook, but, above all, ignore the louts who boast about the competing tablets having several hundred thousand apps compared to what the PB has. My usual reply is "Do you have them all? " Figure out what your needs and priorities are and check BlackBerry World for the selection, read the reviews, check out the appropriate threads on Crackberry.com and you should be able to find and buy most if not all that you need and want to turn your PlayBook into the most useful and entertaining tool you could get. Enjoy!
and mostly this tab will be used for ebooks and music; and an occasional video or two.. :P
