unable to get past 'connect to Wi-Fi

I have just taken delivery of my playbook 16GB. I am not in a Wi-Fi accessible location so I won't be able to connect to the internet as yet. My problem is that I can't get past 'connect to Wi-Fi'? Does that mean this tablet won't work unless and you cannot do anything else unless you are Wi-Fi connected?

The normal method is to set up a new playbook via wifi during which process the latest operating system is installed, so it is useless until then.

 

In theory if you have a pc or mac with the latest blackberry desktop software you could invoke the "debrick" process via usb which can be found in recent posts but without Internet there is not a whole amount you can usefully do. It also takes some time and is riskier than waiting for a wifi connection.
