    Oh. I must of mis read title.

    I thought u "sold" you Playbook and this was another thread of another person giving up on the Playbook.

    Interesting how different people interpret the title.

    I did the same yesterday. 3 people at my work, my boss, myself and another guy bought the paybook before Christmas. There were two other guys that were thinking of getting one but they were not sure if they wanted to get playbook or ipad. One of the guys wife has an ipad so he was leaning more towards the ipad of course. He said he likes the big screen and few other things on the ipad. I was telling them both every day how good the playbook is. How they can bridge it to their BB and browse the net and check emails on the go, and with the OS2 upgrade in February it will be even better. Finlly yesterday when I saw the post for the 20% of @ shopblackberry. com ( thanks to Edsam ) they couldnít resist anymore. They went on line and bought it.
    One of them said this morning that when he came home last night his wife told him that he got email confirmation that he made a purchase. She asked him what he bought and when he said playbook she said why? Why canít you use my ipad. He said no, I donít want that. I want playbook. I can bridge it to my BB and browse the net, check emails anywhere and donít have buy another data plan. I want something portable that can carry around and can put it in my coats or pants pocket.

    If I got promotion/bonus for every PB I "sold" to friends and even random people, I would be super rich by now

    Anyway you get my like, too.

    No promotion. You didn't have to do any work since the PlayBook sells itself. Sell an old 9000 to an Android fan and I'll be impressed.

    Both my father and sister bought one after seeing mine, one serious problem...video chat, I started hearing from them all the time. Did find a solution however, got the beta os with NO video chat (woohoo). Back to talking to them only on holidays!

    Its amazing. Once they get hooked on a PB, they soon have to buy a BB so they can enjoy the Bridge! Hahaha!

    That's great! I was the first at work to get one and then convinced two others to get one. Then another 3 people, then another 2 and today another 2. Fortunately the playbooks in the office have now started to beat the iPads.

    If I had 600 dollars for every playbook I "sold" I'd break even.

    I busted out my PB for the first time in front of my partner at work. I already convinced him to get the new Bold, but he never even heard of the PB when I showed it to him.

    That's part of the problem. RIM needs to help us help them sell these things. The word isn't out yet.

    I have convinced one coworker to get one and our IT dept is trying out a few for others in my department. It runs alot of our internal software and I think it will be everywhere in govt soon. Most employees have a choice now but going forward I think it will be only PB's allowed for work.
