just picked up a BlackBerry Playbook
I wrote about this at CES 2011 and while i have remained impressed with the hardware, the OS has been sorely lacking. I was able to get a 64 GB on the cheap and so far, I'm in love. There is a lot it lacks but the response of the interface is top notch. More to come shortly.

With the upcoming update, I'm curious to see how good these things become. I was tempted in the past to pick one up, but I am so tied into Android, I'd hate to move a platform that has none of the apps I've ever purchased (and for the most part, aren't available on BlackBerry to begin with).
For the price that they are going for though, seems like a great tablet for general use.
