I would like to know why all bb apps suck, and why bb is not compatible with any sort of other device. I was sold this unit about a year ago...and when i was looking at the one question that was important to me, IS THIS DEVICE COMPATIBLE with SKYPE? Turns out they were full of **bleep** when they said yes, and i am still angry because there is no possible way to do video calls with any other device. Also there is no other messaging applications that blackberry uses that are compatible with any other type of mobile device. And that is the reason blackberry is going for a **bleep**. Because of incompatibility witheverything else. Tango doesnt work, kik messenger doesnt work, and my android phone is faster and can do more then this 32gb playbook. Which by the way costed me over $600, and it cant even do what i bought it for. And slower then my great grandmother with a broken hip for god sake. And while scrolling, even if my hand is moving onthe screen, most of the time...if there is an advertisement and i touch it, it will automatically go to whichever ad i touch....while scrolling. i would like to see a change. This device turned me off touch screen devices till i played with the android products. btw. won't see me purchasing/wasting money and time on a blackberry device ever again. Thanks for reading this D A. Sincerely, Don.

Yes that is understandable. Too bad though. And would have returned it if i hadn't gone to school 1500 miles away before i got a chance to actually use it. Which was the reason i bought it. To stay in contact with family and what not.

So, you took the word of a salesman, never used the device until you were too far away to even see if it worked. It's too bad that your experience wasn't what you thought it should be but it's not the Playbook's, or RIM's fault.
As a side note, the Playbook is only $200-$300 now for a 64Gb model which makes it cheap enough to convince others to purchase. I got my wife one for Mother's Day and she loves it. We video chat over it quite often. I really like it. However, I knew what I was getting when I bought it.
