I am a NOT a Blackberry device user but with the advent of the new OS, I AM very interested in the PlayBook. There may be more people like me out there who are looking for a smaller tablet with good (great) hardware at an affordable price. While I'm very interested, I'm not ordering today because I have three critical questions (that I hope all you experienced folks aren't rolling your eyes and groaning over):
Thanks for taking the time to answer. I don't really trust sales people and would hate to get a good device and end up using it as a doorstop.
- Will I be required to have a Blackberry subscription? I have an Android phone, no interest in traditional Blackberry services and would prefer no "overhead" on a monthly basis to make the Playbook functional.
- Is there any hope that I will be able to read my Barnes and Noble nook books (or substitute any other e-book platform) on my PlayBook?
- Will the PlayBook OS support full Skype functionality?
