It's more for personal/pleasure however I am going to be looking into APP Development, I've always wanted to develop for android, and now that I can kill two birds with 1 stone so to speak, it makes things a little easier.
I have converted most of the android apps I use regularily from APK to BAR files, most of the games don't work, however quite a few actual apps do. I found a great concept for streaming video/music/documents with PHP and HTML5, so I may look into that as well. But yea, I paid 250$ (+ taxes, so about 280$) for my 32GB as I didn't have any coupons or anything. It's a great tablet for the money that's for sure.
I use mine to access my work exchange email, work website tools and that's it. Music? I have an iPod for that. Video? Not really going to use it. Photos? Maybe if I encounter something out of place at a customer's house and I need to take a picture and email it but other than that, I won't really use it either. Games? That's what I have my PC for and since all I play is BF3, I don't think I will use my Playbook for games either.
But you are right, some people will use it for games, music, etc. In my case the 16GB was enough and with the free 50GB Cloud storage from Box I am all set. For $140.00 I think I got a pretty good deal.
Has anyone tried to connect a USB external drive to it through the mini USB port to see if it will read it?
