    I'm here!! Geez.. think I made five posts on the blogs yesterday.

    Per Shao's suggestion above, definitely listen to the podcast for the minute by minute play of what went down in Waterloo.

    Re: secrets. Yeah, there's a lot I can't talk about... but there's also a lot of stuff I can probably say if you pose me a question. So start asking questions here and I'll answer what I can.

    Still have some followup posts to come on the blogs. They won't necessarily be unveiling secrets, but will at least follow up on some of my experiences and observations in Waterloo. Stay tuned!

    What is the holdup on getting the playbook basic functionality?

    Why can't it have an email app that users that don't own a blackberry can use since there is no need for them to go thru RIM's NOC? I even as a blackberry owner do not even care to get email on my phone as I get no important emails. But it would be nice to have a native email app on the playbook to use.

    Are they having such trouble trying to please both the consumer and corporate/government world that they are failing at both? It sure is looking that way.

    I hope they get their transition right because I do like the phones and want to see them survive in the consumer world but they really need to have features that a consumer can use and IT can disable with their policy rather that leave features off because companies don't want them.

    @kevin: Speaking as a consumer, and not as a crackberry addict, do you have faith in RIM after visting them in the 'loo? If you had the cash, would you invest in RIMM?

    In your opinion which phone will hit the US first and what carrier?
    Did you see any prototype qnx superphones?

    Any additional features that will be on the new phones we are not aware of?

    What I was wondering for the last few weeks, Kevin: did you see the executive toilets when you visit waterloo and is there a stand for a playbook in the stalls ?

    Kevin, wtf is with 2 patches in 2 days messing up devices? Is this employee backlash at RIM for the layoffs? Corporate Espionage? Or is the testing department just plain old stupid?

    Yes, are the programmers at RIM incapable of updating anything without breaking something else in the process?

    1. Why is RIM so silent on when feature key features will be available on the Playbook? It is out now so holding back this info isn't really going to make a competitor do something. All the silence has accomplishing is having the early adopters sell their Playbooks and not getting good word of mouth. I had someone ask me if they should buy one and I said if they don't need something now wait because RIM hasn't delivered on a lot of things yet (native e-mail/PIM, native SDK, major apps). I love mine, but can't recommend it at the moment because RIM seems to be focused elsewhere and has a lot of gaps in the product.

    2. Why does it only seem like RIM can do one thing at a time? No phones through the Playbook launch, Playbook seemingly ignored (minor updates, facebook, a video client to nowhere, and patch fixes) while they are trying to get OS7 devices out. It seems like the Tablet OS multitasks way better than RIM management.

    3. What is the top item that is delaying major features being put out to the Playbook? Crypto kernel approval, lack of resources..... Just tell us so we at least have a reason. Right now it seems that they just don't care much about the platform or the early adopters.

    That's a start. RIM's communication sucks, and the podcast didn't provide much information that isn't already out there because most you can't talk about. I understand NDA's, but RIM's total silence isn't helping them at all. Look at the amount of hype that Apple generates with controlled leaks.
