    Sorry to read that. My PB does everything i want expect to play mkv video files. Other than that i'm very pleased. I hope future OS upgrades will fix the bluetooth issue and a file manager would be nice, but in no way do I regret the purchase

    i have an odd app request, but i think it could be really cool.

    I would love to be able to live stream over wifi the video camera from the playbook back to my mac and have my mac recognize it as a usb web cam. The reason i want it is i work doing live video mixing for concerts and events and the program i use can have video feeds brought in, so i could be roaming the crowd with my playbook and it would be streaming directly to the tvs.

    I know it's a long shot, but i think there are a few uses for it.

    The other app i would love is a WIFI midi controller app like the iphone.

    I want a full-suite money manager and investment portfolio manager. Like Quicken, and TD Ameritrade's thinkorswim Application.

    Also, we need a good photo-editing/media arts application, like Photoshop or Gimp. Maybe even a basic 3D modeling application.

    These apps would make my love for my Playbook even stronger...

    Dropbox
    Chat client that consolidates different chat accounts into one location.
    BB Apps (Travel, Traffic, BBM) or at least Bridging to phone to access these apps.
    Bridging that allows call answering and faster loading of Bridge apps.
    Netflix app and Hulu support.
    Video Conferencing that works across platforms (playbook to iPhone/iPad, playbook to computer, etc).
    Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja (just to shut up the haters)
    Twitter app (either twitter, seesmic, tweetdeck). Because the web version of Twitter is awful.
    Photo/video uploader (like instagram for photos and something that makes posting photos and videos online easier).
    Uploading support from video and picture apps on Playbook.
    GPS

    Not an app per se, but browser support for things like MLB so apps aren't required.

    My Top 5:

    1. EVERNOTE
    2. Reader that can sync with Google Reader feeds (Feedly?)
    3. Dropbox
    4. Netflix
    5. Bookmarks sync app (Xmarks?)

    Still haven't bought a PB yet, waiting to see if some of the above (especially Evernote) will be natively supported!

    - Categories for everything: icons, pics, videos, APPS !, etc (who wants to scroll continuously- even the ipad has categories you can set up for apps !!!)
    - QuickLaunch for Playbook: my #1 blackberry app !!!
    - Much better settings for the DocsToGo as per the smartphone versions
    - would love a system menu button for apps options as in smartphones
    (I'll think of more)

    and some of my iOS favorites, including Magnificat, iPieta and Divine Mercy

    I could load the iOS on an iPod Touch, but I don't have access to WiFi at work, which is where I use them the most.

    Rim sells a device that can turn your blackberry into a remote control for your tv. You put it in front of the tv and it runs though wifi. I would love to see that for the playbook!
