all i know is that when the 3G version does come out i will probably have a 16GB wifi version for sale...lol...
Interesting news... I hate to be negative, and I _do_ like my Playbook, but I'm starting to feel as though RIM could have had things a little more thoroughly thought out for the PB release.

I'm willing to settle for Wi-fi only...if I REALLY need to get my PB online without 3G, I can always tether. What I don't need is a bigger bill for my phone service. At the same time, I have to say I'm finding it dismaying how poor publicly available Wi-fi services are...
