    I am sitting on my bed as my new PB updates the software to version 1.0.8.6067. I was going crazy a little at first, because I was swiping left to right instead of right to left. But, I finally got it and got on to my wifi. This is so cool!

    I was picking it up at the Radio Shack where I had my PB shipped to, and I noticed the clerk was toting up a sale at $499 and trying to sell me extras. I had to say, "hey, you know I bought and paid for this already."

    Oooookay. My PB is restarting.
    was the swiping thing not crazy at first lol I'm good with the gestures now I thought my pb was broken at first when it updated because it stayed in the splash screen soooooo long. I had to get up for work the next day lol finally got to bed round 2am after dl apps and playing with it. Love Love Love my pb!!!

    I got the Aquarium app. Yup, forked over a cool $1.99, but it was worth it.

    I got my Playbook the week after Black Friday for $199. But to paraphrase an old saying, it is all dressed up and no place to go. The hardware is impressive. QNX is smooth and easy to learn. But the lack of apps means it will sit in my desk drawer until February when OS 2.0 is officially released. I need a native email client and access to Android apps at a minimum. The only useful feature is the HD cameras. A self portrait was amazingly sharp and clear - actually a little too sharp showing too many blemishes. The playbook could use a good photo editor and a way to transfer photos easily.

    The three PB's that I ordered on the 24 of Nov. finally arrived yesterday. This thing is awesome! Even though I've been the one looking forward to getting one since before they were available, my wife and daughter are very happy with theirs as well.

    Exclusive native video chat is pretty neat! PB on standby on my desk on a charging pod receives a unique chat notification tone.

    Those with more than 2 PBs...can you video chat with more than 2?

    Wait. Convert to Judaism, and you only have to wait until next Tuesday at sundown. Of course, you'll have to get rid of that tree. Too much trouble? Plan B: pretend they are Chanukah gifts from me. Then next Tuesday night, you can open them and say, "What a mitzvah! That barskin, giving us these PBs."

    I just received my (16 GB) from shop.blackberry, ordered it on the 24th. I bought a second one at Staples when there was a lot of problems with canceling of orders etc so I now I have one that I don't need. If anyone is interested I will sell it for what I paid ($189 + taxes) (local Toronto Ontario).

    Got my playbook today. I can type surprisingly fast on it with my thumbs. Only downfall is no autocorrect for the little things i screw up my spelling on all the time.
