isn't this a duplicate?
have they updated the features on this yet or is it on the way out? i was interested in getting this half a year ago but read it doesn't support many mkv files and that BBM was not on the device.
The only thing that can save this is an Android ICS port.
That's a fantastic price if they honour it. This means the 16-Gb is now the same price as the 64-Gb. Shame I bought the 32-Gb a few weeks ago at £149.

Great device by the way, i love it
nice one op, ordered, glad i never went to pick up the 16gb one i reserved. Lets hope they honour this
I'm not sure if it is wise buying this. I had a quick read of some recent reviews and the initial feed back I got was that this is not up to scratch with its reasonably priced competitors. The samsung 7" may be a better option especially with the special offer cashback. I have a feeling microsoft is going to bring something out which is competitively priced which will make the current tabs drop prices.

Microsoft Surface
Limited Android compatibility but a good screen and great sound. I use mine for video/audio/internet and does the job just fine. If you are looking for the basic's this has got it. If you want to pile it high with a **** load of apps then pass this by as that is its Achilles heal
Thanks! Just reserved one.
Really weird ordered the 16gb one two days ago, now have ordered this one if they value it the 16gb one will be going bk unopened. happy days.
The Surface that was demoed is going to be nowhere near this price, the rumours are likely to be false.

I would say the Nexus 7 is worth the extra £30 even with 56GB less storage if you're looking for a general purpose tablet and don't specifically need the extra space.
Bargain.

I love my playbook.

Only feature I miss is Skype.

where can you get the Nexus 7 for £159?
why was this cold while the one posted like three mins latter(different poster) 100 degrees?

I have a nexus 7 otherwise would ha e thought about it.
For £129 can't be bad as a second tablet as have the XOOM and wouldn't mind trying a different operating system.

Great screen and is a lot more stable than it used to be (holds on to my wireless signal now). Still very little in the way of normal apps without you being a tech genius and sideloading etc which I tried and failed to achieve.

No Lovefilm or Netflix which would have been ideal. No Kindle or Words with Friends without jumping through hoops.

Has got Twitter and Facebook.

If Blackberry support it going forward it will probably improve because the hardware itself is clearly high quality.

£129 for a 64GB is hot.

PS. Without a case it will fit into the average man's inside jacket pocket - This I like as it means I can take it to the pub to stream the footy.

You can get it anywhere for that price, try the google website.
Dear Jon

We are now preparing your CURRYS order for delivery

they are honouring it then
I have ordered one for my dad, i havd a 32gb one and its a great tablet. only let down is the apps but more are coming out and im sure if blackberry stop supporting it you will be able to hack it to allow other android apps on it. well worth 130 for 64 GB!!!!! if anyone has worked out how to get skysports news app on it let me know :).
nexus is 169 as you cannot buy instore and so you have to pay the £10 postage

If they developed Silverlight for it, the whole thing would take off as would open up Sky Go etc.

not for me but I can appreciate a good deal - voted hot
Ordered...HOT
My advice is to wait until these go down to £50.
other one has been spammed now, so this can get the heat it deserves
Merged threads, thanks all
Great price for this - thanks
just ordered.. many thanks
Lots of heat - at this price they are going to sell like hot cakes. I alread have a netbook, an android tablet and a Kindle 3, but can't resist this!
good deal
Very good price even if you use it for a media player and internet/facebook/twitter.
Incredible price for this version, great piece of kit. Would be all over it if I didn't already have a Nexus 7.
Sadly chances of it getting Android are slim to none, I am trying to figure out a way I can use this but I have soo many tablets now from deals I can't even justify it to myself
i think i payed £169 for the 16 gig tablet, i knew at the time they were either gonna get popular and go up in price, or start goin down, though overall im still really happy with my purchase, i probably use mine more than my friend who has an ipad, but i think that was mostly because i knew the playbook was mostly only good for internet and video, and thats what i use it for, the ppl with ipads seem to get it to do everything, and then use it for nothing (well the people i know who have it anyway). i mostly got it as a stopgap tablet, in a few years, tablets are gonna be alot more competetive and better, so this is a good deal for someone wanting a media player for a few years, i really love how the software works, and its lack of face buttons works really well, using ipads in the apple store feels positively archaic now
I bought two one for a friend who doesn't have a tablet and one for me. I have an ipad 64GB with 3G so I'm not sure why I got this but for roaming I can tether to my work supplied (and paid for) blackberry which is tempting alone.

Just got acknowledgement email which stated the following.

"What happens next?
We will email you again when your order is confirmed. All orders are subject to stock availability."

It already has Android ported to it.

Honestly though, I had one of these and I found it to be terribly slow when using any of the apps. The interface and screen are lovely, and the build quality is great. Good for movies too... but once you start using the apps things turn to treacle.
