I have been excited about the BlackBerry PlayBook since it was first announced last September. When I got a chance to preview it at the BlackBerry PlayBook pre-launch party at South By SouthWest in Austin, Texas, I fell in love with it. The event was so classy, and the Research in Motion representatives were very courteous, and extremely helpful at the demonstration booths. They spared no expense, with absolutely delicious food, and the world-famous DJ Diplo giving the crowd an amazing performance.

I am just waiting for the version to come out that has a 3G / 4G radio in it, simply because a Wi-Fi only version would not be suitable for me. I would love this book to accompany the PlayBook, and plan to purchase the PlayBook the very day that the 3G / 4G version is released.

murnende

I'm not entirely certain I'd spend money on it, but I'd be interested to give it a read.
