All is fine and dandy, but we need to find ways to make RIM earn more money; there's some flaw with the demo units at Future Shop and Best Buy that is still unaddressed as of PlayBook OS 2.0:

Future Shop / Best Buy Demo of PlayBook -- Major flaw losing millions of $ for RIM

I hope RIM can fix these flaws over time & make the units more appealing to first-time users. Although IMO, it may be too late for the current PlayBook, they should do a simultaneous hardware/software refresh that addresses these shortcomings, to get people to come back and "try the latest and greatest new thing".
