Can anyone confirm (or not) that the PlayBook includes a native Explorer-like file management utility able to launch documents, change file names etc.

It would be excellent if a developer built this application. I am sure there is a window of opportunity to make some $$ as I would be happy to pay for a file manager/browser that included directory structure of files copied onto the PB. It would also need the ability to 'launch' the application when a file was clicked to open (i.e. open Adobe Reader, W2Go, S2Go, SS2Go, etc.)
RIM hasn't provided this and I think a lot of people want this functionality and expect it.

I'm hoping to have mines finished soon, odd mockup http://ihaveinternet.com/dump/filemanager_mock2.jp
Also it will support remote file systems in the future, the first one will be DropBox

Won't a file browser require a native sdk (and possibly root)? I thought air apps were sandboxed. There's a file browser in the app store, but it can only see its own files. (hope I'm wrong about the sandbox!)

Using AIR you can basically see anything inside the "Shared" folder... documents, videos, music, photos, misc...etc
That is basically where the majority of user files will be anyways so it should be pretty decent.
