Default Re: BB Playbook still ok to buy?

If you want a more open Android alternative than a Kindle Fire at an affordable price point, from a reputale manufacturer, check out the Lenovo A1.

They're discounted to $249, 16G mass memory, 7" gorilla glass screen, same resolution as Fire/Playbook, dual cameras (lower resolution than PB/ipad), GPS, BT/WiFi, and SD expansion card slot to increase memory down the road. Only downers are single core, 512M memory and Android 2.3...and Lenovo is publicly stating no OS upgrade for A1 (only hope is for ICS-based CM)

Last downer - you have to web order, everyone is sold out except for overpriced Amazon vendors, and delivery will be post X-mas.
