    I hope everyone that ordered one or walked into a store got theirs, others who have not, I hope it arrives soon, you will love it!!!

    got the 32GB, best buy fell through(now I have a $50 gift card but want nothing from them, wish it was an amazon gift card). Went to an Office depot and the guy was real pushy in selling me some insurance for like $120, told him no and he gave me a look like I told him about his mother.

    I have my Playbook! Quite the ordeal though! I pre-ordered in-store at Best Buy, I get there and they didn't get any 32 GB ones, even though I ordered it! So I said forget that and went to Staples. They only had 16 GB too! Then I searched online and found that Office Depot in town had 1 32 GB Playbook and it is now MINE! I'm all paired up.

    This will sound stupid but the hardest part was when they said "Swipe to continue", I kept trying to swipe all over the device, up, down, sideways.... and all they wanted was a little swipe over the words. D'oh!!!

    Off to play! Once this thing gets more apps, it will be even more awesome!

    Just picked mine up at Staples. No wifi access at work. may have to do the starbucks thing. How long should I expect the update to take?
    The update is over 100MB if I remember correctly and then takes some time to install. Going to Starbucks might not give you enough time.

    Picked mine up at Best Buy, I called and asked if they could switch it to in-store pick up and they had five 32GB in stock. Love it, easy set-up, bridged instantly with my Bold.




    and this is the weather program

    Got mine this morning and returned it this afternoon. Both my home and business network use a non broadcast SSID. After over an hour with tech support and a call back from them to me, the BB guys informed me that "at this time" the Playbook OS does not support non broadcast SSID - but a patch should be coming in the next few weeks.

    We will see. A bit surprised since on WiFi setup the option to name a hidden SSID exists (though obviously does not function).

    You know the hardest part is getting in the mindset that i do not really need apps because i have everything like on my laptop (of course minus the chat apps which i hope they release soon) but that idea is hard to get used to because even my BB does not have full web.

    but i am not sure how reviewers complaining about apps are unable to realize how huge this is and the fact we have everything we need using the web browser.

    I mean if i use an app on my PC i want it (chat apps, msn, ...) but other thinks like facebook, youtube, ... not sure i care i mean if the app is better then the web version should be better so my experience on my laptop is nice.

    so anyone complaining about apps and stuff take the time to think of this and use the full web on it, PB rocks
