Mary stated "I don't care if the Playbook doesn't have a "native" email because, frankly, I get my email on my computer [home or office] and my Blackberry picks up my email from those accounts. Do I need yet a 3rd place to view them? If I do, Blackberry Bridge works well ... "
Mary, I don't have a Blackberry so a separate email client will be great for those of us that cannot bridge. I have accessed my email via the web browser but it is not as nice as a dedicated client. As for apps there are a few that I am waiting for and if we get access to Android apps my wait will be over. There are a few e-readers that do a great job with PDF documents so I am really looking forward to the FW update.
