Default Re: Pros and Cons of the new PlayBook

Pros:

QNX;
Speed and smoothness;
Quality cameras;
Size;
Overall ease of use;
Terrific word processing;
Browser!;
Flash and native pdf;
Keyboard (landscape or portrait, it just works better with this form-factor; and
Bridge

Cons:

Limited Bridge functions:
Inconsistent swipe functions;
No universal search;
No native email, BBM, TXT or Telenav;
Limited apps; and
Idiotic initial carrier support

Most of these cons seem temporary and should be addressed through wireless upgrades. I wonder if we will be able to load beta releases (at our own risk, of course) to the OS, as we have done with the handheld releases. With the later models and more recent "unofficial" leaks, they have generally been true upgrades with only peripheral bugs, well worth the time and risk.
