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.
Same, same.

The lack of 3g was a dealbreaker for me, as far as the Playbook replacing my iPad.

Can I use the 3g on my tethered BB 9800 to use the Playbook online outside a wifi hotspot?
