    My main phone is an iPhone. I have an iPad2 and it works great. I did have a Blackberry Storm 2 for work some time ago (it's probably still in a desk drawer here in my office but the office changed to iPhones).

    I'm not looking to replace any of those items. I WAS looking to replace my old iPOD (I misplaced it somewhere) that I use for music only during my second life as a weekend musician. I mostly used it to play music between sets. I looked at a 16gb open box iPod nano and they're $125. For another $25, I could get a 16gb open box 4th generation iPod touch and run Spotify which would be great. I've been using my iPhone for between set music with offline playlists I created in Spotify (I have premium) since I don't have every CD in the world or want to download every song I might play once. But, I figured I really neede 32gb if it's to be my main music player for gigs and in the car.... $160 minimum for a used iPod Touch 4th generation 32gb that isn't broken or nasty.

    That's when I came across the BB Playbook 64 GB for $129 open box. Tons of memory, I understand I can put all my songs on it directly from iTunes and then I could also use it as a small tablet for other things (including flash based sites I can't access on my iPad2). Plus, it wouldn't be so expensive I'd be afraid to leave it where people could see it at gigs. (Sometimes I also want to use my phone between sets, so using it as my music player on gigs isn't the best solution.)

    I've read what I could find on running a Spotify app or player or whatever on a Playbook, but while it looks like they all work through the browser (and, therefore, would require wifi), I want to make sure that there's no way to play Spotify playlists offline on the Playbook. If there's a way to do it, I'm in. If not, I'll have to pass.

    Thanks for your help.

    Spotify will run on ge Playbook but I'm not sure if it will work offline, don't have a Spotify app to verify. Anyone else want to take a look?

    Yeah, those are the things I read, among other things..... I think I'm just going to go with the new ASUS MeMo HD 7 as it will do what I need this device to do without any issue.

    I've looked into this too, and as far as I can find, there is no way of doing this. If you DO figure a way though, do us a favour and post back here.
    Cheers, Chris.
