    I have a convertible case (with the stand) and also the Blackberry Soft Shell case. It is a good idea to keep the Playbook protected but I do not find the "naked" Playbook slippery at all.
    Lovin' the Playbook and hatin' the cynics!

    I purchased the BlackBerry mini keyboard with convertible case with my playbook. Its well worth the money.

    Actually, the pb has a rubber (or similar) rear that wraps around to the very edge of the front. So it is at all slippery. But you might still want to protect it from bumps. There's lots of discussion on protection versus using it naked. Thoughts vary. Same with screen protection or not.

    I still haven't thrown my box out. It's such a pretty box. Everything that came with the Playbook screamed premium device: the charger, the cables, the sleeve and even the screen wipe cloth. You are in for a treat when you finally open it.

    Welcome! You will probably want some more protection beyond what comes with your PlayBook, but get to know each other and take your time. You are in for a treat!

    Be sure to take advantage of all CrackBerry has to offer. The reviews, skills and answers to questions will help you get way more pleasure from your PB. It is a great community with a tradition of helping.

    I purchased a leather wallet type protector for my PlayBook. It has done a good job. Targus was the manufacturer. I carried my PB to estimates and used it for contract reference. So it has been on construction sites and hit the floor a couple times but survived unscathed. That sleeve that came with mine seemed kind of wimpy for the plans I had for my purchase. Still like my PB!

    I also have the OEM PlayBook Mini Keyboard+CASE. If RIM had of released this accessory in a timely manner I could have saved a lot of money. I have several cases. My suggestion is to shop around for a case that fits YOUR lifestyle. There are all kinds of cases. Good luck and ENJOY your new PLAYBOOK.

    It comes with a sleeve, and there's a number of different cases depending on preference, when I'm at work I likevthe otterbox case and at home I like it with none the best.

    I opted for the official Blackberry leather journal case. I paid 29.99 but it's only 9.99 in PC World now.
