Ok.. here are a few things I would like to see.. I'm sure that I'll be repeating some other things that have been posted but if RIM sees that multiple people are posting the same or similar requests then maybe they will become a priority in future updates.
Also, i don't have a BB Phone, I have an iPhone 4 that I can make my WiFi hotspot and works great for me, so the bridging thing isn't useful for me.
1. Updates available after 4 or 5 new fixes or added features. If we have to wait months for updates then some Playbook owners will be getting disenchanted with RIM.
2. I know this has been posted before but SPELL CHECK would be Good!!
3. Curser keys for easy editing of text.
4. An e-mail app so I can get my e-mail through WiFi anyplace I have connectivity to WiFi.
5. A background running app that is partially transparent that simulates the spacebar and cursor keys for play Flash games that require them.
6. Netflix app for streaming videos.
7. Pandora app for streaming music.. Pandora works through the browser but as soon as you go to another tab or app, it stops.
8. The ability to rename and add my own tabs so I have more then just "All", "Favorites", "Media" and "Games"
9. The ability to have folders in the "tabs" areas so I can divide apps into further catagories. Ex. in the "Games" tab I would like to divide my games into catagories such as "Puzzles", "Arcade", "Action", tc.
10. Added e-book apps such as Kindle and Nook so I can use an already existing account that I have and port my books over.
11. The ability to print to my printer that is connected to my PC through the WiFi.
12. The ability to have multiple browses ope at the same time instead of just browser tabs.
13. The ability to have 2 apps running at the same time in a "split" screen side-by-side mode. Ex. Browser on one side and Word to Go on the otherside.
14. App World - My World to show all apps that need an updat at the top of the list.
I'm sure I will have more but these are the ones that I can think of now..

I honestly think that arrow keys on the keyboard is a horrible idea. They should just extend similar functionality found in the document editor suite. Basically to change the location, you tap on the text and a little arrow appears which points to your current location, and you can drag this to your desired position. It would pretty much be like the copy and paste slider thing but it would be one instead of two. Please no arrow keys though!

I would agree to be innovative on the arrow keys, but it has to be fast!
a move + maginfy + place cursor to go 2 letters back takes way much more time then 2 quit clicks on an arrow.

3 more things:
1. Apps that are clearly non-OS must be removable (or at least hidable) and not reinstalled via an OS update. (e.g. Bing Map, Slacker Radio)
2. Make the swipe sensitivity of the browser configurable, because there are many times when I try to drag some contents inside the browser, the entire browser area is moved instead.
3. App World - please give me a simple way to view all updates. Right now I have to scroll down and find apps marked with a star. When you have 100s of apps installed this will be totally unscalable. Maybe put them all on top like Android Market does? Maybe a new category that only show apps with updates?
