    No, but I think the Playbook is one of the best tablets for website compatibility.
    There's no tablet out there that offers 100% Of web content available today, but having Flash support does give the PB a leg up in this category. Whether you care about or need Flash is another thing entirely though.

    I care about it. I use Flash on my PB daily. Being able to download files with the browser is important functionality as well. I was shocked to find out the iPad couldn't do this.

    I just don't know. I still can't search on a webpage or reorganize my bookmarks. I can't easily find the picture I just took with its camera and email it to someone - I have to search through 3,000+ images. The list could go on but that's sufficient for this thread.

    But those are nice prices for the pb.

    Finally glad to see RIM using flash as a selling point. They can pretty much say that exclusively now that Adobe has abandoned JellyBean. You have to jump through some hoops to get flash on the Nexus 7 and PB is native support. I agree "No exceptions" is a little strong, though (e.g. Netflix site).

    This is for F2: You could find and email a photo you just took using Files and Folders app. Just go to camera folder, sort by date created and descending (that outs your picture at the top), and then use F & F's send to to send your photo very easily. It's very quick, really.

    Best Buy has refurbished 16GB playbooks for $129.99.

    Has anyone ever purchased a factory refurbished Playbook, does it look new?

    Can anyone confirm if it carries a 1 year RIM warranty?



    Thanks

    I just saw the $129 Best Buy price lol.
    I haven't bought a refurb PlayBook, but I've used refurbished tablets, phones, computers, etc., and never seen a significant difference.

    I should have noted that Files&Folders can do it, one picture at a time. But now if I want to send photoS from last week's photo album I'm in trouble.

    Don't get me wrong, I like FilesFolders but the pb still needs some real help in the entire Folder Handling areas.
