    Hey, I am most likely going to be buying a playbook today but I was wondering whether or not I should wait for the playbook 2 which leads me to my question...is there going to be a playbook 2, has there been any announcements on it?

    The leaked roadmap suggested PB2 in March-April. However the upgrades were fairly small, it's really more a PlayBook with cell radio. Unless you have a particular need for a PB with its own cell radio (rather than tether/bridge), or a need for NFC, I'd buy a PlayBook now. The new ones will surely cost more.

    I was at Best Buy yesterday in Whitby, Ontario. I went to get another 32gig for a family member, and he advised me they were all out. He told me that RIM wont be shipping anymore of the regular ones, and that the Playbook 2 should be coming in the next couple months. This guy was the manager, and his associates seemed to agree. Got me thinking about an announcement for it along with the phones on Jan 30th. Anyway, that's what they're telling people.

    The Second Coming! That could explain the current really low prices - trying to get rid of current 1st generation stock before a 2nd is announced that could slow sales of OLD tech?????

    Its obvious that a new playbook is coming (because of the sell outs at your local shops). Probably with BB10 and the Dual Core 1.5GH chip and the bump up in ram at a more reasonable price. I also believe it will come with a new name ( Playbook 10?). Its going to sell well due to BB10. This will also be the time that the BB10 gets released for the original playbook. I have one 64 playbook and two 32 playbooks for the kids. I cant wait.
