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.
