First, the Playbook was delayed for 1 month because RIM had problems securing the screens. Now, 935 Playbooks are faulty. When there's smoke, there's bound to be a fire.
That's typically what happens when you rush a product to a market.

So this just ended up being a "Faulty OS Build" issue....

We forgive you. As far as your iPad is concerned, eBay is your friend :-p
