    Hi all,

    There will probably be a lot of posts in he forum about everyone's new Playbook, and i just wanted to get mine out there.

    First of all, i guess i should give you all some background on myself and why i got the playbook.

    So, my first blackberry ever was the curve 8520, which isn't a great phone, but it served me well.

    For my birthday i received the 9900, which i love to bits!!

    Today, i got the playbook 32gb, and i must say, it is amazing!!

    it was all set up, including an update to 1.0.8 ( i think) within one hour.

    my dad has had an ipad two for a while now, and the first thought that came into my head was that neither of these devices were perfect. some might say that the playbook has some rough edges, but they wont admit that their devices have some problems as well.

    i love that i can just drag and drop .avi files from my computer straight to the playbook. non of that silly converting business.

    this is due to the operating system, which having played and used the ipad, the ipad 2 as well as many android devices, is unique. it is not better or worse, it can't be for me. i agree that there are some rough sides to it (the keyboard and lack of the wonderful blackberry spelling/autocorrect feature). however, there are also plenty of things about this that are great ( the browser is jaw dropping, it's faster than the ipad 2 and easier to use than android browsers. the multitasking is great, it couldnt be better. the bezel swipesbare just fantastic!!!)

    i could go on about things that i love about the playbook, but im not because i dont want to seem biased.

    in fact, i could go on forever about things thatbare good and bad, things that need improvement, but im not.

    In the end what matters is that we are happy. I couldn't care less about the small faults with the playbook, because at the end of the day, the playbook does what i want and need.

    if an ipad does that better for you, then use an ipad. just don't tell me that it is better than the playbook, because for me, the playbook is perfect.

    ( this was all typed on my playbook!!! so sorry for no capitals and **** spelling)

    I just got done opening the Zagg FLEX Keyboard - I'm typing on it now and let me tell you... It is a great little keyboard. I was a little disappointed with the way it felt when I first opened it. It almost felt a little cheap. But it was extremely easy to set up and I was using it in a matter of seconds. It's roomy and pleasant to type on and has a pretty snappy feel. All in all - it has been a good christmas for my playbook

    It's really nice to see people who actually enjoy the playbook.

    I had been reading some worrying things about it, I just hope they get some of the small stuff fixed in Feb.

    Merry Christmas everyone!!!

    I would like to add my thoughts to this great thread. This developer is very happy to see that there are quite a few new (and apparently happy) PlayBook owners today. You are giving me a bit of a Christmas bonus by downloading my app and I hope you are enjoying your purchase. I am just finalizing an update which will be available in App World very soon. Thanks for your support and have a safe and happy holiday.
