lol many of us did the same thing, we all got the 32gb that was at 250$ during boxing (day & week).

But then RIM lowered the price again and now we get a 64GB for 299...what did you think i did -> switch!

HI, I really want playbook but the biggest problem is that they dont support video phone such as purple 3, tnouch, z4, etc for deaf communication. Ipad2, any pc laptop or computer can use video phone. Now I wonder why not playbook provide one for deaf communication? It is kinda unfair for me. I love blackberry so much and had different model for years. Now I am convinced to free ipad 2 and i can use video phone and it s neat! I m waiting for playbook to add video phone then i would go for it and ignore i pad2! What is matter with blackberry technicians?!

Perhaps you should check with RIM and see what they say.

i currently own a 64Gb playbook, but after finding very limited apps, poor customer service, and frequent connectivity issues with my PC, i'm wondering if i wasted my money.
it seems the apps i am most interested in are mac related. since i hate anything mac or anything with an "i"whatever, i' will be looking for other options.
when i "upgrade" it will be to a PC based platform.

Limited apps, yes, however the many Android-ported apps found on Goodreader.com help a lot.

However, poor customer service is just completely untrue. I have seen many people get their Playbooks replaced (at no charge) when people run the batteries completely dead. I've seen them replace them even when the warranty has expired out of goodwill. To say their customer service is poor is just plain slander.

I've had two Playbooks for just under a year and have never had a problem connecting them to my PC's.

I am interested in purchasing a Playbook but in the Niagara Area of Ontario they seem to have disappeared from the shelves of stores. Hmm

16GB PB, 2+yrs strong on the hands of a toddler and his mom, traveled three continents, dropped many times, it is still rock solid. 9700 lasted 4 yrs before it started giving me white screen that was corrected by pushing on the edge, dropped numerous times on concrete/tile. 9900 amazing device, never dropped but still looks like brand new, all buttons look great, never had a problem either..8300, it is still in use by grand parents, still strong amazingly solid.

Sorry this is late, but I wanted to chime in.

I have had mine for over 2 years without a problem.
Still wish the Bridge with my Q10 was as fully functional as with my 9900. However with the recent update a week or so ago to the Bridge, it shows that someone at BlackBerry is still paying attention to the Playbook so maybe I will get full integration of e-mails between the my Q10 and Playbook, someday. BBM and text integration is OK, but most of my communication is by e-mail.
