    I just bought a new 64 gig wifi Playbook for $166. I ignored the masses when I purchased my z10 and am very happy with it. I am hoping the same for the playbook

    The standard apps work well and also many from the app Store.
    If you think to sideload some, I suggest to use the Chrome extension.

    If you are thinking about the Chromecast thru Playbook, didn't work. I converted the app, as did a friend up in Kaniduh, no workie. It opens and looks for it,but wont mount.
    I did get it to work thru the PC using Phone My PC, to the pc, then in the crome browser to Chromecast. Kind of defeats the real purpose, but it works that way as of this time.

    Reread his post. He's talking about sideloading using the Chrome browser's Playbook app manager add on.

    try searching bargain bins at staples or walmart. i picked up a rapid charger here in canada for $10 on sale... but i heard places in the states were going as low as $5, or $10 but including a case as well. It may be too late for this though. You can also try a smaller shop that may still have it in stock and just cant get rid of it, talk them down, anything under $20 would be good... especially if it saves your charging time.

    last resort, buy a cheap EU - US adapter lol, if you ever travel to EU then you have one.

    Since you just got it from Amazon they ought to send you the correct plug if you contact them. Also maybe they will give you a rapid travel charger for your inconvenience. But then if it actually came from a third party seller on the Amazon marketplace they would only be an intermediary.

    In any event get a rapid travel charger which uses the magnetic plug attachment if you can find one at a decent price. Amazon has listed them in the past for $12-15.

    I have had my Playbook for a couple of years, the more I use the better I like and find new uses for my PB.

    I had an older customer to tell me that it is good to listen to these devices that offer natural sounds/ white noise while one sleeps and this helps them sleep better. I thought I will get one, then I remembered my Playbook I will just use it for that, load the files and let it work it magic...!

    Also Photography has been a life long hobby, I love showing people pictures that I have loaded on my Playbook. Like they say a picture is worth a thousand wards, helps pick up the conversation.

    Amazon did me right. Gave me a $33.00 credit. Ordered a Playbook fast charger case and screen protector.

    use a adapter for the plug.the charger is. 110v-220v universal,
    or better buy a pb fastcharger


    don't use a cellphone charger with a output less than 1,5 A!!
