"Sticky" product

Due to the Playbook's functionality when connected to BB phones, Consumers who buy this will be unable to rationalize switching to an Android, iOS, WinMo phone unless they get rid of their playbook too. It's sneaky, but smart. Obviously, this has a lot of appeal to current BB subscribers, but it marginalizes the Playbook for those not currently using BB (until there's a cellular version, that is).

Personally, I'm still not sold on the whole idea of a tablet. However, things will get much more interesting when Gingerbread comes out and HP starts making WebOS tablets, too.
well as for android "froyo" has a built in wifi hotspot so you could connect the tab through that service 😁

😡 now to me thats just stupid to me first of all i dont get why anyone would pay a subscriber another 60.00 a month just to have a tablet on the net when you can just tether it with the phone you have and why would you by a tablet made by blackberry ...

Impressive start!

I'm pretty impressed myself. Although I will not consider completely switching from my current iPad, I may pick one of these up just to cull my desire to be an early adapter.

This device absolutely has a level of professionalism that every other tablet on the market lacks.

Blackberry swung for the fences on this one, I'll be willing to bet they hit it out of the park!
Only thing that makes me nervous is battery life... dual 1ghz processors?

What I really want is for someone to make a tablet using the Qi screen technology. That would ROCK. high end media player indoors, e-ink reader outside.
