    Hi CB Friends, earlier in the week, I left my 16GB Playbook on the Macau to Hong Kong ferry. I was (and still am) bummed out. Thank goodness I backed it up the day earlier and it is password protected so whatever monkey stole it will probably get it wiped after 10 tries. So in 5 days I am having serious Playbook withdrawals. Although on a positive note, I ordered the 64GB as my replacement.

    The monkey that "found" or "stole" it? The title sounds as maybe you misplaced or left it behind. On the bright side; If you lost it a year ago you'd be out more than twice as much $$$ replacing it as losing it last week. Also, losing your tablet is a great opportunity to purchase any other tablet and you chose the Playbook. That speaks volumes for both your intelligence and the product. Good job!

    Truly sorry to hear about your misfortune glad you will be getting your replacement soon I wonder what some of the people who made comments posts would read if they found themselves in the same situation.
    I have one suggestion if you have one of those lable makers you could make yourself a email address list that email on the sticker saying if found please contact possible reward for return you never know how kind people can be untill you try although I have a feeling you have learned a valuable lesson and wont be leaving your PB unattended anymore.
    Goog luck hope it all works out for you.

    Well you probably can get that 64g PlayBook for like $20 more than what you paid for the 16g PlayBook.

    Do you know the pin for it. Since its more than likely wiped and resetup we can try a video call.

    I have taped my business card onto the back of my PlayBook. That way there is always the hope you may get it back. I left lt last weekend on a picnic table at the marina but remembered it after walking a couple hundred feet. Be nice to have a cable attached to the PlayBook and the family jewels just in case.

    You should have waited for 4G LTE PlayBook to hit where you are...

    Only worth it if you're actually going to use the LTE.

    Right, make that cellular data. Either way, it's a significant price when you can buy a phone for the difference and use it to tether. , you can get a dedicated pocket hotspot for $100.
