    I took advantage of the current pricing and bought a new 64GB PB from BestBuy. It arrived today and I love it. Now the question is what do I do with the PB16 that I have had since June? My wife doesn't want it (not into tech), and I am unlikely to use it anymore.

    You could talk her into keeping it for Video Chat... Maybe keep it hooked to a tv via HDMI?

    Or I can give you my address and you ship it my way.

    You can have one dedicated say for your work place, while on the newer one you can have all you videos, pics and things important to you.
    Have all apps dedicated to fun on your home PB and work related downloaded on the other

    Set it aside as a "spare" in case (heaven forbid!) you should ever have to have repair done on your 64 gb. I just finished reading a thread about someone having to return his for repair and it got me to thinking! When my 64 gb arrives (hopefully) next week I'll be in the same boat as you. I told my husband that he could use it, but he's not very techy, so it will probably just be my spare that I use as an alarm clock/music player in the meantime.

    Send it to me so I can sell both that and my playbook and get a 64 GB. Or the more obvious answer, sell it on amazon.

    Goto a local Charity and donate it for a tax receipt


    Possibly a church that likes to use tech, but can not afford it

    Selling it ought to be easy. It's been in an Otterbox since day 1, and no where near water.

    Buy a Hip Street Leather Portfolio Case with Bluetooth Keyboard and set up the 16GB BlackBerry PlayBook as an Internet-connected kiosk on a small table for guests to your home. When not in use the tablet could be used as a digital photo frame.

    Maybe the priest at your church could use the tablet as another evangelic-type member of The CrackBerry Nation does each Sunday. Hey, where is my halo?

    How do you deal with both units on the same BB ID? Or do you have multiple IDs?

    If you donate something as small(easily concealable) and expensive as a PlayBook, I bet the staff will just end up stealing it. =/

    I would wait until OS 2.0 is released next month, upgrade it, and then sell it. I think it will be worth more once OS 2.0 is installed on it.

    The biggest drawback to waiting is that Apple will likely release the iPad 3 in March and prices of the iPad 2 will drop and cause the Playbook prices to drop further.
