We thought about the Playbook since it can be configured by his IT guys at work to sync with his lotus notes and other enterprise stuff, rather than getting a stand-alone reader like NOOK.

I read some reviews a while back about the limitations of using the Kobo app on the Blackberry and wanted to know if anyone has tried it?

The Kobo app on Playbook works fine, rather like the firmware on a Kobo reader. It struck me as being slightly slower than the actual Kobo reader, and anything backlit is a bitch to read on for any length of time, but it works fine. I'm not sure what limitations you're referring to, can you elucidate please?
