    Come on! Seriosuly? Paying a fee and you don't have access to the whole store?!

    You know, for RIM doing as bad as they are, they seriously don't need to charge anyone $5 in the first place for 50 songs...oh I'm sorry, I get another 50 if I know another person who uses this crap. Please.

    Complete. Utter. Total. Fail.

    maybe RiM should just die. The Playbook is good hardware but the UI kind of defeats it. Too rushed to market. App seem hard to find. The 'Flash' annoying commercials. QNX isn't going to save the company as it stands right now. Nokia the second although which one falls first is up for debate.

    Can BBM handle 500 kbps streaming ?

    Can Device Stores Minimal Music Size x Collection ?

    What is this "Prootocol" - Internet Music Streaming
    or "Internet Music Download" using BBM ?

    $5 a month with a 50-song limit? What planet do they inhabit?
