    This will answer your question.
    All data will be deleted and the PB will go back to when it was born

    Delete all your tablet data - User Guide - BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet - 2.0

    To go back to re-install the apps, when you initialize the PB use the same user information as before.
    AppWorld will have remembered what you had installed previously and allow you to install new.

    Everything gets erased and on restart the newest operating system will be downloaded and installed. This can take 30 to 90 minutes depending on your wifi speed.

    Me thinks we're all novices since this thing is only a year old and OS is only 2.x.
