    Just wanted to say that I'm pretty excited to be rejoining the Blackberry community. I recently left my BB 9900 due to it constantly bricking for a HTC Sensation 4g, but ended up getting a 64GB Playbook brand new for only $180. So excited for OS 2.0, demos at CES look great!

    Great and welcome. Dang wish I could've waited for all the sales and got one at that price! Where did you get it?

    I bought it off Amazon.. I think I snagged the last one. It was new and fulfilled by amazon so I get their free 2 day shipping. Estimated delivery date is Tuesday

    Same here. I bought a new 16GB Playbook just before Christmas and I was so impressed a couple of weeks later I bought a 64GB Playbook. The 16GB one has just been sold on eBay for more than I paid for it!

    You need the 9900 back, it paired with the PB is the ultimate marriage.

    I can certainly understand your excitement. I've been waiting for the official release of os2 and the closer it gets, time seems to be passing slower.

    Congratulations on the great price. I payed the full price for my 32gb PB way back last spring, but I was able to get a 16gb model for my wife for 99 bucks so it sort of evened out.

    I just ordered mine from SBB as well, it's been 2 days and the shipping/tracking info hasn't updated. I just want to know when to expect it so some crackhead doesn't steal it off my door step.

    I ordered mine online on a wed-without any changes in order, I called SBB on Friday. Arrived on Monday-I was told USPS, delivered by Fedex.
    It wasn't handled ideally, but for $299 w/no tax, i'm not complaining!

    Hard to believe. Amazon itself never went below $399 for the 64. $180 makes more sense for the 16. Else 3rd party seller and it was hot.

    Agree, you gotta get back your 9900.

    Im on a 900 paired with the PB. Just sweet.

    Just bought a 64 G also, 16G just not enough to store my games.

    Yeah, it was a third party seller who sold it as new. If it wasn't for the "fulfillment by amazon" I probably would not have purchased it.

    I'm super excited this will be my first tablet.

    Sounds like a remanufactured unit.

    If it isn't sealed, then I will return it to Amazon free of charge. Their return policy is great if its fulfilled by them.

    Yeah haha I just hope I don't get a defect unit. Dead pixels are probably the worst of them all.
