    All I can say is wow this thing is so smooth if bb 10 is anything like the playbook os they have a winner here was going to stick with my galaxy tab 7+ but after buying my playbook the galaxy tab went back tonight sorry if there is already a post about new pb owners just very happy with this device and wanted to say hi. Also just hoping that we get some app love would love a real Google talk app for there video chat or Skype would work. But I'm happy

    If you're running OS2.0+...you're essentially running a baby BB10.

    BB10 will bring new features and new skin, but the core will largely remain the same.

    Thanks for the welcomes. So as far as I can tell the only way to video chat would be if I knew someone that had a playbook also right?

    That is true. So buy another one for a family member and have fun!

    I use my second PB to spy on my parrots when I'm not in the room ..

    You can Web chat. If you have facebook, you could use airtime.

    NO. While the VideoChat app on the pb requires the same on another pb, there are other apps including ReelPortal for the pb and other platforms that allows video chat. Others have found some browser sites that also allow video chat, I believe.

    edited to add: I see others beat me to the punch with replies.

    Parrots? Yay!! I have a Sun Conure that I adore. Never thot of getting a 2nd pb to spy on him (as in he already chewed up a bb charger) - good idea.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of PB. The pb is the best and I will say it is addictive. You will carry the pb with you wherever you go. I've had mine for several months and I use it more than my desktop pc. The dynamics of this tablet is cool. Many customers and friends who witness this tablet have bought one. I hope you enjoy your pb as much as I have mine. Again, welcome aboard.
