    Hey, did you hear about the iPad 3? Now THAT'S a product!

    Let me guess....you probably think iPad 3 uses a quad-core processor as well right?

    Heh heh. That was a nice smoke screen by Apple.

    No, I can read.

    Are you going to tell me that the iPad 3 won't be awesome?

    I bought my wife an iPad 2 in January, and now I'm fighting her for it all the time. It really is incredibly handy, and replaces a PC for pretty much everything a casual user would need...plus the Apps. It's all about the Apps. Plus battery life that let's you go for 12 straight hours is really Cussing impressive.

    Not saying it won't be awesome. Just sayin' that some minor changes are exaggerated alot by the media and apple. They'll headline iPad3 by saying 'quad-core + lte+ retina display' and people will jump at the opportunity to get it.

    iPad is an awesome device, I'll be one of the first to admit that but its only because of the apps. However, I can't view flash on it (lots of times I stream hockey off my PB). Sure you can say 'there's an app for it' and all that. Also I can't open excel files or save PDfs from an email, and I have to use iTunes to transfer everything. Just not my thing. However I think their virtual keyboard is still 2nd to none, way better to type on.

    Yeah, I gotta agree with the iTunes point. I Cussing hate iTunes, and am so frustrated I can't just plug my iPod/iPad in and access it like a USB stick.

    I ordered a 64gb PB today. It's probably too much memory, but hey, you can't add it after, right?

    I was looking around for a Sky Map or Starry Nights or similar app for my 9900 but apparently there is nothing. However there is a new app getting good reviews for the PB that appears to be very similar: What's Up (not to be confused with "What's App"):

    Keyboard on sale at TheSource.ca.

    I ordered it, and they gave me free shipping due to it being on back order, which was expected since it's a pre-order. I'll take the free shipping. Sweet.

    Probably not the same thing, but amazon.ca has one for under $60 (plus shipping):

    No track pad with gesture support on that one. That's a biggie.

    This thread is for the PlayBook. The other thread I started was for the Bold.

    I just got my Playbook yesterday (and sold my iPad 1). For what I bought it for it's ideal - Blackberry Bridge.

    Loaded lots of apps and Android apps on it already. The iPad experience is better IMHO having now owned both. I'll see if I'll end up keeping it or not. Some stupid annoyances on the Playbook - no AC3 filter, can't browse network shares, no SSH client, not turn by turn navigation - my iPad had all these with Apps I bought.

    But bridge is brilliant though.
