Update: I decided to buy a Playbook, though not primarily as an ereader. A few months back, I bought a Kobo touch for $50 or so used, and a leather book-like magnetic case from Skindigital. I am in my GLEE. The Kobo touch is *the* definitive ereading experience. No offense to anyone that does, but I can't imagine using a Vox or Playbook, etc as a primary source to read books. The Eink is just a dream. The Kobo Touch might be the best bang for buck electronic device I ever bought.
So I guess my advice is, get a tablet for tablet needs, and an ereader for reading. In my case, combined I have $145 sunk in for both together, which is 3/4's what the Vox cost me initially, so I have my cake and am eating it too!
I wish all of you Vox owners the best, I hope the addition of the Play store helped out somewhat, and that Kobo fixed the wake/sleep problem, and got netflix working!
