    I was watching TV today and saw what looked like a playbook to me on the Time Warner Cable commercial. What do you all think? At least the Playbook is still making it's way around TV after 2 years of release.

    It's not a PB. Bezel is too narrow.

    Dang it. Oh well... I saw that too. Wasn't sure. I saw the top buttons and the placement of the headphone jack, which matched the playbook

    I believe that is a PlayBook. The bezel does look small but maybe they edited that image onto to screen. Everything else from charging ports to volume and power buttons is the same. The logo, although blacked out, is in the same spot too.

    I see a lot of BB phones in commercials and shows. I guess it fits well for the generic phone/tablet look.

    I watched the movie "What To Expect When You're Expecting" with my wife last weekend and the PlayBook featured heavily in one scene. Here are two pics from around the 36min mark:

    Very nice. I haven't seen that movie. I might have to check it out.

    I have the idea that the tv series Continuum uses PlayBook.... Would have to verify it....

    Not much surprise here. They are fairly inexpensive but, besides that, they have a more appealing and professional look than comparable android devices. The production company probably just keeps one around (or even a dummy unit) for ads like this. Mickricks movie catch was interesting though.
