    Only about 1,000 recalled? That is not bad when compared to the automotive industry. The problem was much more quickly taken care of than the power steering problem that I had with my 2004 Saturn ION. The speed this problem is dealt with should encourage the new owners of BlackBerry PlayBooks. They can realize that they made a wise investment. It took 5 years for me to get my power steering repaired under warranty.

    Crackberry reached out to RIM and received the statement below.

    "RIM determined that approximately one thousand BlackBerry PlayBook tablets (16 GB) were shipped with an OS build that may result in the devices being unable to properly load software upon initial set-up.

    The majority of the affected devices are still in the distribution channel and haven't reached customers. RIM is working to replace the affected devices.

    In the small number of cases where a customer received a PlayBook that is unable to properly load software upon initial set-up, they can contact RIM for assistance."
