I had a sony tablet S 11'. too big. I could type with my thumbs the way you can with the playbook. It was also android which imo is crap! I dont know what all the fuss is with android. Its sloppy.
BB TOS is smooth and the gestures are amazing. sure, the browser crashed every 1/200 times and the bb bridge notifications dont go away or are in sync sometimes but everything else is gravy baby, yea!

Most everyone that loves their playbooks would put the bridge at the top of the list as the reason why, so I would not blame you. However it is almost difficult to believe that the bridge is the problem you describe - more likely something with your carrier in Eastern Europe or .. dare I say it.. well let's just say I have known people's spouses that have difficulty with the SIMPLEST of technical tasks....
"where is that big E again to surf the net?" "How do you double click again? the right button or the left one?""
I think your post is very misleading about bridge functionality, you may have had problems but most do not.

It's kind of like wow ! thin phone! but when exactly is thin... thin enough already!!!!
If I wanted to talk with a sheet of paper I would get a freeking pencil! not a phone.
It's all about spec races ...well my battery lasts a month! I mean jeez are you going camping with it?

If I need to do some major spreadsheet or CAD or PDF thing I simply head to the desktop - no biggie. Nice to have I mean the Box.net app is great but not really needed. Does everyone yet understand?
Q did an amazing job on these things, especially the pairing of the phone - don't you think 007?
I mean when I am using the Playbook to sniff out bombs with both hands to hold it steady getting ready to swipe to the laser bolt cutting app (not to be found in app world btw) - do you really think I want to put it down to see who is calling on the phone in my pocket? (oh just the wife - that can wait) You thought that was a rear facing camera? ha ha
Too bad the things you describe are classified information that the average consumer apparently doesn't have access to.
The unclassifieds will NEVER get it. The whole consumer thing is just a facade for what it was REALLY designed for - in case one gets accidentally left in enemy territory - they will say - ha just a playbook not even worth powering up...
Have I said too much ?? Oh no its agent adamman from counter intelligence!!
Ugg owww Aggg! Acc take that!! uggg
biff! pow! No not you too batman!!!
Powerful portable professional playbook

It's basically just an average tablet that is missing quite a few standard things. A reason to purchase it is the fact that the price is dropping rapidly in some places and it only has room to get better. The hardware is up to par, but the software is not. Maybe after a few updates it would be worth your while.
But as of now, and since you don't use a BlackBerry, probably not. The PlayBook is severely crippled without a BlackBerry.

and there are current improvements on the way which should be coming early next year if Rim can keep up with their schedule. Also the portability is an amazing factor if you don't mind the 7' screen.What are men without knowledge?
