    The latest BB news and a flaky battery have spelled the end for my PB. Such a shame as it had such great promise when I bought it about a million years ago (it seems). Just ordered a Sony Vaio Pro 11 - giving up on tablets as a serious allround portable device. Together with my Z10 should meet my needs. RIP PB.

    After some consideration, I've decided to move to another tablet platform. The Playbook is a great device, but I need a tablet that will work with Microsoft's OneNote. The app(s) available for the Playbook do not function well or at all with OneNote. As a replacement, I purchased an Asus MeMO Pad HD 7. Microsoft is currently having a bit of a problem with the OneNote version for Android, but a patch is scheduled for this week that will supposedly fix the problem. I bought the MeMO Pad through Amazon Europe, and paid 150.- Euros. Specs below.

    Asus MeMo Pad HD 7 specs:
    - 7" IPS Display (1280x800)
    - 1.20GHz Quadcore MediaTek MT8125 Processor
    - 1GB RAM
    - 16GB with expansion slot for 32GB
    - Wireless LAN
    - Bluetooth 4.0
    - GPS
    - 5MP rear camera, 1.2MP front camera
    - Android 4.2
    - 2 year guarantee

    I cleaned up the Playbook & accessories, put them back in their original boxes and placed them on my oldest son's desk. He'll have a nice surprise when he gets home tonight.
    If I were your son I would thank you with a fake smile and pretend to be happy.
    I bought playbook just because I needed a tablet and that's the best I could afford with my budget. Now I can afford more and I really wanna buy something that's more useful but I can't justify a new purchase because I already have a tablet. If your son is big enough to know tablets, don't do that to him.
