    Ive had my playbook for 5 months and before I bought it, I did my research. But nothing is perfect and this is why the thread is here... So if you don't have anything negative about your playbook, then off.
    You must have selectively and intentionally edited out of your mind the part of my post that said there are thousands of threads just like this one, spawned by perhaps a dozen or so of the same ususal suspects, or their aliases. Again, it goes to research...do it well, and one will find no need to start yet another what's wrong with the PlayBook thread; comprende Kimosabe?

    $50.00. PM me where to send the money after you send and I receive the PlayBook. Hurry now, before I spend my money somewhere else.

    I like my Playbook, but the infancy stage of its OS is taking way way too long.

    After more than a year after release and 1.5 years since announcement, it still lacks so many elementary features and functionality. Such as support for background services/notifications, basic browser functionality (not even bookmark management ), decent file manager, etc.

    Third party developer support is horrible. Most popular apps are nowhere to be found (some can be emulated (!) though). Even apps that are present don't get much attention from their developers. Adobe Reader and other productivity apps are a good example.

    Unfortunately, the proverbial "tools, not toys" and "professional-grade" do not apply to the Playbook at all.

    I hope things will change, but based on past performance and the info that is available as of now, I don't envision any significant changes any time soon.

    Currently the only brand that makes a tablet that will fit into a pocket is Samsung...that 5.2" Note...lol. That sucker is a huge phone! Would be cool if RIM made one that size.

    True that. I would imagine a bluetooth headphone would be a necessity unless you wanted hand cramps.

    I love my Playbook, but...

    Browser:
    1) What is with the browser? There are some pages that just won't load. Many of the pages that do load show the "checkerboard" when I try scrolling down the page. It also won't play the web version of Pandora.

    2) I can't organize my bookmarks in the browser. That's intolerable!

    3) No way to stream music from websites

    4) Browser History - can't "multi-select" items - have to delete one by one or clear "all"

    5) Private Browsing invariably ends up locking up entire browser causing the need to reboot the PlayBook (arrggg!) to reset

    Messaging App:
    1) Can't create folders for moving/saving e-mails (again...intolerable)

    Bluetooth
    1) Connecting a bluetooth mouse works fairly well, except when it doesn't. When it doesn't, I have to reboot the PlayBook (arrrggg!)

    2) Connecting a bluetooth keyboard is aggravating. Most of the time it takes 2 or 3 attempts and then after about 10 minutes it disconnects.

    3) Forced to use bluetooth to connect keyboard & mouse. I didn't realize it would only allow 2 bluetooth connections, so I can't use a keyboard & mouse AND connect to my bluetooth speakers at the same time.

    4) When bluetooth mouse is connected, you can't fling/slide the screen up/down using the mouse when in the browser, you must use the scroll wheel or the up/down arrows of the keyboard. The scroll wheel works terribly...when scrolling down, the screen will actually scroll up sometimes.

    HDMI
    1) Works great when it's working. I've had to return 2 units (so far) because the HDMI output stopped working

    Please don't get me wrong, I put this info out there for the people who are researching buying a PlayBook. There's a lot of "fanboys" on this site that seem to jump on people whenever they complain about anything to do with the Playbook. The Playbook has some issues that are legitemet concerns to discuss. I don't think most of these items will be addressed in the 2.1 update, and I doubt seriously if there will be anymore updates after 2.1.

    I bought this tablet due to the fact that the Asus M370T is being redesigned and has been pushed back at least until the end of June. Once it comes out, I will most likely dump/sell/give away the Playbook and switch to it. Tegra 3 chipset and ICS will blow this tablet away.

    If that's the case, let me be the first to say goodbye and good luck with your Asus. Let me help you to make this transition from BlackBerry to Asus a less then 5 minute event...go to www.transfomerforums.com

    What a crap excuse. So you need this to delete all those porn sites you visit and not the rest?

    Which browser does that? Hope you Asus can do it for you.

    And add some Woolite (tm), and place in the clothes washer on GENTLE cycle. No shrinkage on the sweater, and the sweater will clean the screen for you...........

    i agree. I haven't used my Playbook in weeks. After 3 months of use, the novelty has definitely worn off. Sometimes its a headache to use. When I do use it, its for a quick google search or to play Words/Scramble with Friends
