So, Rim has recently dropped playbook prices drastically.

I picked up a 16gb version for $169 (open box price, $199 "regular" sale price)

It's super fast, and works great with the BB, it does nearly everything one would expect.

The main drawbacks I've found so far, which are rather annoying, but hopefully fixed soon, are that I can't enter a url in the podcast app to subscribe to podcasts not in the library, and that not every app has internet access even when paired to the blackberry. Some do, some don't.

So, my question is, do any of you have one? What do you like/dislike about it? And is there a work around for the podcast issue, which really is the only thing close to a deal breaker for me?
