I've been looking for a tablet instead of a laptop for work purposes and played with this one before and was very impressed at well everything it had. Bluetooth keyboard and I am set with this beast.

I think the Blackberry Playbook is hugely underrated, its smooth, portable, powerful, great screen, and if I see it for this price ill try to get it cuz I missed out on the Touchpad one.

same here, gotta beg my wife to let me put it on the credit card as a little christmas gift for us. I have a feeling the inventory of this will be depleted very quickly.

wOot wOOt
I always love the Playbook it's super smooth and great creen and powerful, but couldnt afford the initial release price $200 is great for me, but only IF I can get one, it would sell like a hotcake

Yeah, it will sell like hotcake, but I wonder how many of them will end up coming back to the store the day after Christmas...:-) It's a good tablet...better at this price. Is the Android Player available for it? Otherwise, plan on opening a Kobo account if your big on reading.
