    Why would it be running Android OS when Blackberry have their own webOS? Go look at their website.

    I won't be getting this as I want a 10" display.

    It won't use Android, but it's supposed to have a compatibility layer for running some Android apps.

    It looks light it might be a solid tab but I came from WebOS Palm Pre to my EPIC4G and I have gome to love my Android so to learn and use a new OS would be pointless for me... But it would be nice to test and play with it... Anyone get one please review and let us know hows it going for you ... Thanks...

    I'm more of a 10.1" guy myself. I don't like those small 7" screens. I have HUGE hands so that doesn't work so well for me.

    I have yet to hear too much about the PlayBook and am really looking forward to hearing more.

    I was seriously considering the BB Playbook. Ultimately, I decided against it because it seems like it was rushed to market. At the time, there were very few apps and major problems with the OS such as having to tether to BB phones for email. I wanted to like this tablet because I like Blackberry, but until they get their act together, I won't consider them. As far as screens go, I own both a 10" and a 7" tablet. I tend to prefer the 7" screen because those tablets are more convenient to use and lighter weight. You really need to use both hands on a 10" screen, even just to hold it.
