    I have my 16gb 3G iPad 2 and 16Gb playbook. Ask me anything. I've only had the playbook for a day but so far it's great.

    I will test drive it til Monday then pick either the ipad 2 or playbook to keep and the other will be refunded at best buy.:)

    So does it access your email?
    Do you like it?
    How is the speed?
    And lastly...I assume you have an iPad 2.... How does it compare?

    Thanks!

    No dedicated email client yet but rim is working on it. Can use browser email just fine.

    So far yes im really impressed. I much prefer the size over ipad2. It makes the iPad 2 feel ridiculously big! It's much more portable and pocketable. The screen I think is better quality as well. And boy can this sucker multitask! It is fast!

    I need more time to compare it with my iPad 2, but right one it easily matches it. Rim just needs to fix up some issues and get apps out... Which will just need time. And will definitely play a factor in deciding which one I keep.

    Yea, my boss just got one and it is impressive as he'll.

    I haven't really had a chance to mess with it but the screen sure is impressive.

    and on the playbook im not getting any of this $#$% garbage. Playbook is actually fast unlike apple has to false advertise saying their ipad 2 is "yada yada yada" faster than ipad 1. Thats a bunch of rubbish as far as im concerned.

    Yes Tapmyapple you have your opinion and the other 5 million people who bought there ipad2 have theirs just take back your iPad 2 it is that simple you currently have two threads running both complaining about the iPad 2 one frankly is enough.

    Well when i went in today to buy it, the demo unit at best buy had this exact same problem but i took it with a grain of salt lol. I told the guys working and they were all aware of it.

    I asked the sales guy if hes had any returned yet and he pointed to the back room behind him. I saw 6 returned playbooks stacked up against the wall. He said half wont turn on, half have dead pixels.

    Well back to best buy it goes right now. I couldnt even enjoy it for half a day, good lord.:mad:

    To be honest, not sure if i wanna bother exchanging for another and risking more time wasted.

    So where are you now? You have the iPad2? One of them or three? They all do the same thing, or just one of the three?

    Are you keeping it or returning it along with the Playbook?

    I think you should get a puppy. Forget the tablets.:)

    This just cracked me up. It came so unexpected.

    @Tapmyapple

    Considering you do seem to enjoy the Playbook more then the iPad 2, may it be worthwhile exchanging. Surely not all units die.
