    we were using windows mobile handhelds and today we all got new playbooks to replace our extremley slow and laggy windows devices. So much better!!, we already had bb phones so the pb was a perfect fit.

    Excellent! I love seeing business realize the versatility of a PB. Good for your company. And believe me, you will find more uses for it the longer you use it. My company started with one, went to five, then seven, now two more are forthcoming. There are more businesses and companies integrating PBs every day, but the only time we'll hear about it is from employees or witnessing it and sharing it. And lets face it, the majority of PB owners and users are not on the CB forums.

    From what I have heard from the forums, PlayBook 2.0 will be making use of ActiveSync. I guess the IT guy figured now would be a good time to stock up and get ready to integrate things over from BES to ActiveSync, who knows.

    i have a question... are "most" CB fans in Canada? Here in FL, it seems like iPhone/Pad is the way of most businesses... except my friends who work for banks. Am I wrong? Just curious...

    I can't speak for others but I think it's pretty mixed here.. I see many different devices in businesses. Yeah a lot have blackberrys but it is getting less. For the general public way more iphones and androids! My friends are crazy apple cult fans! You speak about anything other than apple and they jump all over you

    Well yeah, they are as cheap as they are gonna get, and they had to buy a few hundred of them so it made sense to get them before OS2. I really like spreadsheet to go

    There are a few iFans who gave the old "oh its blackberry, it sucks and its dated" But after playing around with them for a bit they were pleasantly surprised.

    Glad to see some enterprise adoption! Surely they must have sold close to a million of these things by now - what with all the sales etc. You can notice the increase in these forums too!

    I am just rolling out here now as well. I plan to purchase this week and hold them until the 2.0 update and release to our Remote sales team and executives. This will be a full roll out for Canada, USA, Mexico, South America, South Africa and China.

    I'd love to know some details on exactly what you guys are deploying them for. What are you expecting the employees to be able to do, and what apps are you using?
    Cheers,
