    Bought a 64G for myself and one for each of my 2 boys. Already had a 32G so I now own two myself. What to do? Thinking one for work but then where do I put my apps? Can you run two on the same BBID?

    Advice?

    you shouldn't need more than one. I think someone mentioned BB Balance on OS2, as a result your work and personal life should be separated on one PB.

    Some people are way too fond of their Playbooks, unless you plan to use these to produce quad sound or something, that is

    I believe some people have said you CAN run two with the same BBID, but you can't videochat then. Doesn't sound like that should be a problem in your current scenario...

    We'll have two in the family in a couple of days, when my wife unwraps hers.

    Purchased one for my wife. After playing with hers for a week, I realized i needed my very own. Now we own two 32gb playbooks and love them.

    Our family will have three shortly, though two are for me with one being reserved for development-related testing (currently with the 2.0 beta on it) and the other split between dev and real life.

    What TheScionicMan says is true... same BBID on two works fine, though every time you install something from App World it will ask you to confirm associating the new device's PIN with your account. And you can't video chat between your two PlayBooks then. I'm sure there are other limitations that will crop up as well, but at least for my sort of use case it's fine.

    The point about BB Balance is good though... should be no real need to have two for yourself, unless you're a developer, once 2.0 is out.

    We have two -- the 64gb I bought on launch and the 16gb I won from Crackberry which I generously gave to my wife. I'm now trying to convince her to give it to our son in exchange for me picking up a 32gb for her on Boxing Day but I have not won her over yet.

    The wife and I each have Playbooks to go along with our BB phones. Now, we're bridging happily ever after.

    so you can sit across the kitchen table from each other and videochat like a game of battleship

    I'll have two after Christmas. I'm not allowed to keep photos or media on my work PB. So after Christmas I can load a new 64 with anything I want.

    I have two PBs. - my first one with OS 1.8 and one I got @ DevCon Asia with OS 2.0
    One thing is for sure: you can use 1 BBID on both devices and you can sync apps on both devices. The only downside is that you cannot video chat between these two playbooks.
    As I see it, you have two options:
    1. Keep the second one as a spare one
    2. Give it to a loved one or sell it to a friend. I'm not sure what will happen if you use one BBID, sync all apps and then change the BBID. If the apps stay, it will be a great way to share some apps with a loved one and have the option to video chat

    er... yes.

    16G with OS 2 beta
    64G with 1.0.8

    Was pleasantly surprised when I connected the 64G to Appworld with my existing BBid and it allowed me to install all the apps I had loaded on the 16G, free or paid. Now both units are rocking the same apps... no need to buy them again for another unit.

    Most Excellent

    I'm trying to come up with a legit reason to get a second. "Because I want one" is good enough for me, but it's a tougher sell with my wife.
