    That's because the PlayBook will be the first BlackBerry device with OS QNX that will run games just as good as the iOS and the Android OS.

    I'm pretty happy we'll get the PB, but why they don't carry out the WiFi/3G model?... Somehow Apple makes it better...
    Anyway, gonna wait at least for the 3G or 4G version.
    Best Wishes

    Wait! No 3G on this? I guess I assumed it would just have both based on the price points.
