    I would say that no sim input isn't a huge deal as the top competitor, the iPad, doesn't have it either.

    The BBM issue is half way solved with the recent update that allows one to use BBM by pairing with their device. Plus RIM has already said that BBM will be able to be used on it's own in a future software update.

    The price is set according to the tablet market. While I think a 7" tablet should cost less than a 10" tablet, it was smart of the part of RIM to not come in low behind the competition in pricing. Remember, the Xoom was set at $699 when it first came out!

    Actually, I've tried the Xoom, and I gotta say it's almost as functional as the PlayBook (not that I had enough time to check out all the features of both...admittedly I went to stores to try them both), the only problem with the Xoom is that you could get easily lost in the maze of different homescreens. The PlayBook doesn't have that.
