Too little, too late as far as I'm concerned. I'm sure that a lot of people could benefit from the Playbook's new low price, yet with RIM continually pushing back the update to include native email, I just don't feel comfortable throwing down $200. Couple that with a lackluster app market, and that seals it for me.
I'm holding out for the Transformer Prime. I would have happily paid $499 for a Playbook, had RIM taken the time to get it right, instead of forcing it out the door incomplete.
