No tablets are just water down laptops.Playbooks been great for me for and the female guests and for a lay in day in bed.The form also helps greatly to be able to put it down and cruise about the house 1 handed.The browsers been great for me only time its sucked was when i was in a hotel connection sucked thats what messes up the browser poor internet speeds.
There's plenty room for improvement on the PB.But for generic tablet buyer the imporvements needed is only on the playing side of things games,movie watching that kind of leisure type stuff its coming but generally tablets are not ready to replace laptops for power users anwyay.
But its defo you disspaointed.Im more than happy for what I paid for I finally got female guests to shut up with ''Im bored talk'' and distrubing me during football and as I get to editing files and reading online.I know once the 10 gets pushed out and bbm is on there this things gonna go up a notch greatly.I hope RIm dont mess up the price and hike it to a silly amount in future the price has been a key point to this doing well if they set the price just right it will be good once the 10 is in on a PB.
Im very happy with mine.

Best $149 I ever spent. Don't travel with a laptop (BB mini keyboard). Bridge works like a hose (BB9550). Best media server (HDMI)...Lot's of people willing to buy these on eBay and pay more than they were going for on clearance at Staples US. Once I get a music gateway, I will add that to the list as well.

I'm not disappointed at all. I use my PB everyday. And I got it since day one. I said before and ill say again, all the apps that I need are there and I use them a lot.
Hopefully you'll come around, if not I'm pretty sure that you will sell it really easy.Sent from my spectacular PlayBook!!

I have had my PB for about 3 months. I never expected much, but I find it a high quality unit. I also have the keyboard,case,travel charger etc.
The apps that I use it for are good (eReader, marine Nav). It is fine for email and and OK for basic web use. But it is no substitute for a laptop for most normal computer uses. Nor would any tablet be. If I am at home, I use laptop for most things. But when travelling I will use PB for quick check of email or Google look up of something. Or maybe check sports scores. Sometimes as VOIP phone. Definitely as eReader at night.
I bought a to-do list app. But really, I can't see preparing all to-dos on PB. Much better to prepare them on laptop, but have capability of editing or adding to them on PB when away from base camp. This can probably be done with right app.
I wonder how many on this forum use their PB to read and type messages? Maybe a subject for a Poll My guess not very many.
It could turn out that tablets will die out just like Netbooks and PPCs once people learn their limitations. Maybe smartphones and tablets will morph into one. Size of present smartphone, but when opened larger tablet like screen.

I hate to be one of the "Skype" whiners.....buuuuuut....I wish the damn thing had skype. I'm also concerned about BB10 not having skype and this notion of, "don't worry you'll have BBM video"
Yeah, that will be handy seeing how....oh.....ZERO of my friends have BBM. So then I'm told, "hey! great news! You'll get FaceFlow!" Wow....really? You mean I'll get access to 400,000 users instead of more than 200 million....promise? LOL
Other than that, I like my Playbook very much. No Browser issues or anything mentioned above....oh, I do wish there was a better way for the bookmarks to work on the browser....you can't rearrange them or anything without some long stupid "work around" I'm tired of work arounds....

What the heck does number of posts have to do with anything??? I post rarely; but read these forums often.
Have been doing so for years.

Could not disagree more with OP. I use my PB daily as does my wife and many others I know. It works fantastically and I've been able to find pretty much every application I'm interested in. As for support from iOS and Android device, there's lots of it and much more coming with BB10.Z10

Suppose it depends on your needs....i'm more than happy with the browser,shopping,youtube,catch up tv,using it as a media player and streaming through the hdmi....not big into apps,i've downloaded a few.....never bought it for games,i have a ps3 for that..lol....tbh i wouldn't have liked to have paid the release price for one but for the two 64s i bought at £129 each here in the UK i'm happy enough with what the playbook can do.

The fact that there is a thread called this TWO YEARS after release of the device says a lot about how it has stood the test of timePhones:
