    If the kids don't want it then the adults won't bother.

    Shame as I'm sure that the Playbook is quite a nice device.

    It actually is a nice little tablet. I took a another look at it just a week ago, and I was surprised by the screen and speaker quality, as well as the OS. Once RIM releases the OS update that brings the native email and calendar apps, as well as Android app support, we will re-review the PlayBook.

    Is this trying to bolster sales in light of the Touchpad wholesale? I wonder if there has been a blip in iPad sales as well?

    * New * HP Elitepad 1000
    Dell Venue 8 Pro - my ultra mobile device (I cannot believe where I can stick this thing)
    HP Elitepad with Win 8.1 (used) - my main useful device until the EP 1000 arrived
    Fujitsu Q702 i5 with Win 8.1 - mostly used as a desktop/laptop now

    I played with one recently and I must say it was a very nice tablet, and felt like it was the right size. The only glaring issue was lack of apss and email, which as mentioned should be fixed in the next update. Pen support would have been nice, but still I think its the tablet to beat in the under 8in category.
