So the PlayBook is still on sale, should I buy one? I am not too sure. I have all but given up on the Asus Transformer Prime(word on the street is that they removed GPS support from their spec sheet because of its poor signal strength). I for one think there is a future for the BBX(or should I say BB10) OS. With the release of OS 2, new features like Android Player(download and install Android Apps), and native BBM and Enterprise Email support(no more Bridge needed!) should uplift the platform. The PlayBook is already pretty slick, OS2 is supposed to make it run even better…

Also note that all PlayBooks are $299.00 CDN, that includes the 64GB version, until January 9th 2012.
*If you enabled Developer mode on your PlayBook and downloaded OS2, you do not need to side-load the Android Player on your device, its built into OS2.*
