For personal use I'd need Kindle and/or Sirius support, which isn't there. Strike one.
For business use I need 2.0. I am losing faith. Strike two.
Kindle Fire does everything I need and more. It is less than half the price and the form factor I want. Strike three.
Anyone interested in my playbook?
I think I'll hold on to mine. It might someday be a collector's item.

I have a feeling that Blackberry will have 'green'er pastures ahead... "Hello Android"!
BUT when will the following be available?
- EMAIL!!! (the killer app for any device!)

Well, nothing was announced as "soon" or any timeline.
The developer beta for 2.0 to include the runtime for Android apps was just today released to developers.

Slow and steady I suppose... better than doing a WebOS-Touchpad mismatch. However, hopefully not too late... iPad 3 coming soon, Windows 8 around the corner, and Android is evolving.
Exciting things with BBX, but timing is key.

That's right: Timing is key.
If they mess this up and the Playbook becomes a never was, they will be forever known as LackBerry Playbooks.
But if they get it right and create a worthy contender, blackberry could revolutionize business tablets.

RIM has to be very careful. Too much focus on Android to get hip chicks etc. to buy Playbooks while Apple is eating into RIM's "business pie" is not a good thing. One can see iPads all over in libraries, doctor's offices etc. These applications should all be done to RIM products.
