Will you purchase a BlackBerry Playbook or will you go after a Windows 7 tablet, Android Tablet or iPad?

I would love to have a Playbook, but it depends on several factors including price and my budget, also the carrier, if it's going to have 3G or 4G.

The Playbook won't be tied to any carrier. It won't be 3G or 4G.
It only has WiFi, or it can tether to your existing BlackBerry via Bluetooth.

I thought a 3G (or possibly) 4G model was rumored at some point, but not just at launch.

The playbook is what I want, at least right now. I will buy at least one...or rather at least once. My plan is to buy two at lauch, one for me and one for my wife.

I do less an less on a full desktop nowadays, carry a netbook when I travel, and do email and 90% or more of web browsing and reading feeds on the blackberry as it is....in other words, I'm almost entirely mobile now. I'd like to carry something even smaller and lighter than the netbook that can make up that other 10% and more.

I also want to get away from windows in all its incarnations. I don't want to use apple, and really don't want to use android. And as I'm almost entirely mobile anway, and I like blackberry and the way RIM does things, and this new tablet OS sounds promising, I think this may be the way to go for me. So I'm going to wait on it and give it a try.

I am going to wait to check the Playbook out first, but will most likely buy one (I hope...depending on price). I do NOT want one with 3G.... Wi-Fi only will work just fine for me.

I voted "do not need at this time" but am looking at the Dell Streak. A bit smaller than others, but has integrated 3g, wireless also flash 10.1 and android 2.2.

The playbook will be amazing if it lives up to its potential. I will get one for home and maybe an android as a second for home to be able to have both at home.

I still don't understand what its big benefits will be for normal business people. Probably better to surf the web than on a regular BB. But I have a laptop that I take on long trips and I cannot see the Playbook taking the place of that. For short trips, I just take my BB. Maybe it would be nicer to have a Playbook too but just does't seem worth $400. If I am missing some big benefit, please let me know. I will refrain from voting until I get more info.

I will buy one, BUT I would really just rather get Flash player and Java support on my Torch. If there was a Torch 2 coming out instead with a bigger screen and better battery life (than the Torch) that had this platform and features, I'd prefer that.

I'm going to wait until I see one in person, try it out, and read the reviews by early adopters (not paid reviewers). If it's anything like the hype, I will replace my iPad with one.

Depends on what the damn thing actually is. I did not climb on the iPad bandwagon due to it's lack of a built in phone and the fact it was tied to at&t. This is a case of wait and see.

Is the iPad really tied to ATT? I find it strange that it is sold unlocked here in Canada. Is it locked to ATT as well?

No, Verizon is now carrying it as well. And I also believe they have a WiFi only version that's not tied to any carrier. Walmart is now selling them too.
