Why BB makes it so easy to hate them!
The reason why I went with BB is because it is a Canadian Co and I wanted to encourage business from my country. I have bought 3 BB products so far, 2 cell phones and the PB. With all 3, I have experience problems. My 2 cell phones had to be replaced because the OS was falty. And the first one was still falty, but I have decided to keep it... my own fault.
All 3 always crash for no apparent reason. With my bold, how many times do I have to remove the batterie to restart it, even if I have the app RestartMe.
But enough of the Cell phones. Lets talk about the Playbook.
-How many times do you have to let it die so it will eventually restart when you plug it back?
-How many times App World crash while downloading apps... so you loose all apps in cue?
-How many apps constently crash for no reason? (Well, there's got to be a reason, but I have no idea why)
-Why is the "Power Off" is not working? (Have to hold down the power button in order to turn it off or restart)
-How long BB has been in business and why don't they seem to be able to have a decent OS?
I am waiting for the next OS generation, the 10, (If it ever get to that) and I might give them one more chance. RIght now I hate my Bold and I hate my PB. So many times I feel like going outside with a hammer and a camera and smashing all 3 products and sending 'em to BB and posting the video on Youtube, warning anyone to buy there products and go with an Android.
I am sick and tired of BB AND RIM. In the mean time I will use my PB for little stupid games. Maybe that is why it is called "PLAYbook".
A not happy customer and soon to go with Android!

I also like my BB phone and Playbook as devices are concerned. It's BB's lack of imagination I am concerned with. For example my playbook will tell me I have an incoming. call.but won't allow me to answer it. It has gps capabilities but not any good programs to showcase it. I thought maybe I could putbaway my tomtom but that isn't gonna happen. Maybe a decent Mp3 player. Audio voice commands would be great for handsfree as I have a dashmount. I have drive safely program 4my BB phone. But answering calls in my playbook would be my first choice for improvement. I don't know how many times I have been in a hotel room on a business trip and my phone rings while I'm using my playbook composing an email or report and my phone rings. Now I have to get up to answer it cause its charging across the room and lose my train of thought. In summary I think. BB has great products that have no support with future development.
