Default Re: Will you purchase one?

I spent an hour with one yesterday at Staples. They left me unmolested the entire time. I downloaded BlackBerry Bridge to my 9650 and linked it to the demo PlayBook. Easy and smooth, and immediately all my data was on the PlayBook. Very slick. No lag in the PlayBook OS, and a gorgeous screen.

What I didn't like was needing to keep my BlackBerry linked via Bluetooth to keep my stuff on it and to use Mail and the other BlackBerry services. It works well as a stand-alone tablet over WiFi but I don't think it will replace my iPad. Huge potential, but this is RIM's first go-round and I'm curious to see where they take it.
