    I have to agree, we are FINALLY getting the Playbook we were promised, and did buy. Hopefully, it is what they say, and they promised. I am looking forward to all the changes to be made to our wonderful Blackberry Family Member.

    This level of anticipatory excitement can only lead to one thing.

    Huge disappointment. Something "vital" will be missing.

    Any "missing" piece of functionality will be highlighted in a dozen threads, all predicting RIM's consequential demise.

    Wait until you see all the threads like this starting tomorrow. And if it's not released on the 17th everyone will be saying that they missed the date again even though that's really not an official date. I'll bet you never see an official date for any RIM releases after this one.

    Lets give Cpt. Heins a chance and see. This will probably a good way to test the waters on his stated commitment to changing the internal RIM discipline with respect to sticking to and meeting deadlines.

    i really like my playbook the way it is. mind you, i have BB bridge on my BB phone... which is the way the playbook was intended to be used. It was the forums blabbing about what they "thought" or "heard" it was going to be released with, that lead to the "disappointing" release.
    Well, it seems soon enough, the Playbook, will become the Playpad or iBook. It just frustrates me that we live in an age where patience has become an antiquated idea. And really, quite obviously, the only real problem with the PB according to the masses was price. Just look at all the apps flowing in now; and they work on the old V1.0 !!

    I have my second 64gb PB just as it was shipped in the box, except I did do the OS update and set up my wifi.

    Placed back into the box waiting for the "drop". Then will do the OS2 update and begin to play and transfer apps/games slowly onto it.

    My first unit is my companion at all times. Once we are happy with 2.0, my first unit will become "anchored" to AV system, and will be used as a Movie/Audio source only. And to OS20 PB will become my companion.

    Thats my plan. At this point. Until something changes.

    I'm hopeful he's bringing some Prussian discipline to the table after all of this time with Larry and Curly's sloppiness.

    These days there is for sure a lot of general, on going disappointment with rim but with this OS, if it releases even with nothing more than we have seen, i call it a success. This device has its time in the lime light still coming...

    ...just wished it had not have taken so long.

    I am thinking that RIM is going to make sure that they aren't late on this one. Maybe I am just being optimistic. I mean, I haven't had a BB Phone in 7 years. I do hope that they get OS 2 out in time & that it does have some surprises wrapped up for us. I'm not running out to try to sell mine & get an iPad even with the 3 coming out soon. I am waiting for the Keyboard/Case combo to come out too, although I have found some already on eBay.

    I think that with everything, if it's worth having it's worth having right. I mean, I don't know how long the Beta versions have been out, but surely the developers have had enough time to get things worked out. I WANT a FREE Angry Birds & a TEXTING app. I want Skype, Netflix, Dolphin web browser & Flipboard. I've already contacted all of those companies to try to get some information... All I can say is that I am happy with my PlayBook. I just know it can do more.

    COME ON RIM!!!! MAKE US HAPPY!!! 18 days & counting!

    All I can say is whatever date they release the update for 2.0 , they better have there update server tuned up well. Because there is going to be a bombarment from everyone trying to download all at once.

    Although I am definitely excited about getting 2.0 on my PlayBook, up to this point, I have not been disappointed in it up to now. I love that I have internet wherever I go thanks to bridge. The PB is very convenient when I want a bigger screen to read/send messages. The battery lasts for three or four days, depending on how much I use it. The video camera is so amazing, I've abandoned my actual video camera for the one on the PB. I don't need a ton of apps, and I feel like the ones that are offered suit my needs. Of course I would love to have Skype and Netflix but I won't die without them. Like everyone else, I'm looking forward to the update, but I think that RIM deserves more credit than they're getting for the initial product.

    Twice the excitement for me !! I get my new 9810 on the 7th and then the 0S 2 update following at some point !!! Can't wait......................but I suppose I'll have to.

    Wishful thinking if any of you believe it will be released tonight. If RIM has requested devs submit their apps by Feb.6th to allow a release on 2.0 then the soonest anyone will possibly push a magical update release button will be the 7th.

    Wait..... Isnt BBDevcon 7th-8th?? hmmm.....

    I haven't had my Playbook for that long and I like it as it is, but I am looking forward to the update! Mostly for the new apps being introduced. I need moar games!!

    I'm currently using the beta OS 2. Will I need to do a full wipe or can I just update directly from its current state to the official OS 2? And how do you perform a security wipe anyways? Is it different from doing a factory reset or whatever?
