hey kevin,

I am waiting for the review of your blackberry playbook that you just bought today. Congrats to John

I think...I think you got the name wrong. I'm preeeeetty sure you meant for me to win.
Either way, Congrats John!

I just checked his twitter and I dont even see him retweeting the message!! you sure you got the right person crackberry??

lol because you can never have too many playbooks in your home. I do need RIM to fix the first letter cap in a sentence though.

John, enjoy your Playbook. It would be great to see a review from you in the near future about how you use it, plus and minus points, and things you would like to see in the future.

My Blackberry 9700 Bold carrier is AT&T and I've been reading how they are blocking their users from using the Bridge app to connect your BB to the PB. I found the workaround here (for OS 5) at and I downloaded it OTA. Installed successfully, but obviously I can't test it until I get the Playbook. I will report back how that goes and anything else interesting that pops up.

have fun with your playbook,and if you get tired of playing with it,you can give it to me,and ill play the book all day long
