I'm seriously considering getting a Playbook for the office considering its, now seemingly appropriate, price. I figured it might be a nice companion for my blackberry as I'm running around at the office. Does anyone have one that can share their experience or have some juicy knowledge on them to share about the Pb? The reviews are mixed, now that OS 2.0 is out, so I thought I'd ask.

I also considered buying a playbook. However, I noticed to use Blackberry device, you need to get a Blackberry ID and have to agree to the Blackberry ID Eula before you can actually use the Blackberry. The Blackberry ID has the following item in the agreement:
----------------------------
"4. Your Submission Of Content.

Other than as expressly provided in this Agreement or an Addendum thereto, this Agreement does not transfer any ownership of any information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages, tags, or other materials or information (“Content”) that You submit or make available in connection with any BlackBerry ID Accessible Services (“Your Content”).

With respect to any of Your Content that you make available for inclusion on publicly accessible web sites or other publicly accessible aspects of the BlackBerry ID Accessible Services, You grant RIM a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, royalty-free and non-exclusive license to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publicly perform, and publicly display Your Content as is reasonable in connection with the provision and management of any BlackBerry ID Accessible Services."
------------------------

Please correct me if I am wrong. Basically I think it says there is no transfer of ownership to the contents you put onto the web, but it asks you to grant RIM the right to use royalty-free perpetually your content that you put onto the web in whatever way it deems reasonable.

I don't know if this has the same implication as the recent Instagram Eula regarding photos posted on the web but I am having second thought of using Blackberry if I have to agree to the above in the Blackberry ID Eula.
