Yes the initial setup and software upgrade is crazy! I almost got mad on the tablet.
But yes once done, its wonderful to use.
I have had playbook for about 3 months now. It is by far the best tablet for the price range. you can run android simulator and use this as android tablet, added with alot of free best apps in all the app markets as a compliment to playbook users. does everything another tablet can do. runs android apps. and just costs $200 where Samsung tablet and ipad are above $600
The play book is lovely,its far better than ipad and d rest
But I will like RIM to improve on some items
1. It must have a sim tray
2.It must have a return key
3.It must have an option key
4. It must have external memory
RIM improve pls
I found out how to get android apps. I bought a galaxy tab 7.7 and now i hav android and 3g and everything the playbook has and doesnt have. Os2 is just crap.
My friend just bought the 64GB Playbook, he got it yesterday and it has been trying to update to OS2, but it has failed about 15 times so far. The furthest it got is to 210Mb (out of 500) and then it failed. Worst is, you can't even use it until it's updated (will it ever get updated?). I am glad I didn't buy it yet. I will buy one if RIM can sort out the update problems! Until then I think the Andriod based devices are the way to go.
I've noticed that the android player freezes quite often rendering all android applications useless. The only option left is to restart the playbook. And it freezes for no apparent reason while running an Android app like taptu or bord etc. If it's working, you can't freeze it by say quickly moving between different android apps or quickly entering multiple commands. It just freezes randomly when you would least expect. Also if I close it and leave it it does recover in 15 minutes or so saving a restart. It's frustrating nonetheless.
