I didn't understand any of that headline, and somehow I'm proud of that.

Looks like RIM has finally surrendered. Surprised this story wasn't greenlit.

I really don't know why manufacturers try anymore. Has anything protected in this way, worth breaking, ever withstood being released into the market?

As much as I've disliked working with BES, I'm intrigued to see how this will work. Iur shop supports Android, iOS, and WP7, and it would be nice to be able to lock them down a bit from a single platform

I'm sure all nine people that own a playbook are quite concerned.

Ha! been sold out of those where I work for ages now, so I'm getting a kick.

I picked up the 16G one for $199 and it is definitely worth it but I would never pay original price for it. I also wouldn't buy the 32G since for about $70 more you can get a proper Android Tablet by Lenovo. The 64G is definitely out of the question. I bought it as an e-reader and web browser when I am in bed so it usually sits next to it.

I agree. Even if they end up discontinuing the thing, $200 is pretty good for what it is, and I'm not terribly concerned about apps. If I ever get one (it's on backorder from the BlackBerry store), I'll probably use it the same way as I have been using my crappy Android tablet: reading Wikipedia in bed.

One of th apps I have been waiting for has finally shown up which is a ssh client. Usually I use it for reading the intertubes in bed (which I am doing now)
