I don't want it as a business tool, I want it for my 12 year old daughter for Xmas. I want it for movies, ebook reading (as other option is to get her a kindle), movies, browsing etc. I like the look of the form factor , being small enough to carry around a bit more than my iPad. says he's running the v2 of software now and Android apps run well, surely this negates the no good apps?

I don't want to buy a cheap android tablet as they have horrible touch screens, sometimes no Android market etc. I'd rather pay a bit more for a better quality tablet.

My wife wants to get the kindle for her 90 (UK), I want the playbook 200 (UK), in this instance is it worth it, and will it still be supported in the future?

I have a different view of the PlayBook that a lot of folks who replied here. I use mine every day for entertainment and work. I much prefer the 7 in. over a larger tablet. I don't think the PlayBook is going away anytime soon. My 12 year old granddaughter loves my PB. There are plenty of games your daughter would like, music apps and services, VEVO free for music videos, & YouTube works great. The Kindle Cloud reader works very well - there is no Kindle app. I haven't used the Kobo app because the Kindle Cloud is my choice for books. If she likes taking photos and videos, the PlayBook is awesome for both. There are photo apps for cropping, enhancing, etc.
