I know having a list helps set concrete goals. But I want so many that I'll summarize it instead. I'd like it so that when I'm using my Playbook, I don't need to go back to my BB phone to do stuff. So that means fixing Bridge and implementing basic stuff like cut and paste. If I have an incoming call, I should be able to answer it without grabbing my phone - if the PB is paired to my phone via Bluetooth, of course. If I want some privacy, I can switch the call to my headset - again without taking out my BB. List goes on... I hope someone high up in the pecking order in RIM, all the way up to Jim Balsillie & Mike Lazaridis, should try to use the PB for real work with their BB phones in their pockets. Then they will experience firsthand what I mean above. They should attend client meetings with the Playbook in hand, and see the look on everyone's face (those who have iPads and Android slates) when they have to put down their Playbook to do real work using their phone.

Many people I showed while bragging about the playbook asked: Does the playbook let you answer a call?
There absolutely no reason why the device cannot use bluetooth the answer the call.

Missing apps is this device's downfall. They should have a page of apps in progress/ETA and at least a survey page so developers can gauge what people want.
ePub reader - how hard could it be?
Adobe PDF reader does not remember your page - so reading a 300+ page book requires you to write down your page every time you close the app or if you let the battery die. Renders it pretty much useless. Also having to resize the text from the puny default every time you turn a page is incredibly bogus too.
So I bought this thing to read books and I can't! After the first week the novelty is gone and it is already starting to gather dust...
Where the heck is Skype???? Was shown in a pre-release demo but not in original release and nobody is saying anything. Is it coming or not??? The silence is awful.
