Welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.
Synchronizing Contacts from Microsoft Outlook to the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet using the BlackBerry Desktop Software is currently not a supported feature. The following article provides information on how to get Contacts and Calendar data onto a BlackBerry PlayBook: http://btsc.webapps.blackberry.com/btsc/KB30052
Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for the reply. I will have to read over the different linked articles to make certain that I understand the limitations referenced in them. The content of the answer is what I was beginning to suspect from my failed attempts; it is very discouraging to see such a common requirement NOT supported. It detracts in a MAJOR way from the utility of the Playbook!
This brings about a related question. I have come to understand from the myriad postings that I have followed about the new BB 10 smartphone that its operating system is based on a related underlying operating system with the playbook. Does that mean the the BB 10 will have the same or similar synching limitations? If so, that will prove to be a very real dealbreaker for me. I am currently in the pre-regisration queue for a BB 10 smartphone, but if this issue is also manifested in the BB 10, I will have to cancel.
