Dunno about the new one, but I have a bunch of friends and family who got one around christmas time. Almost all of them have had complaints/straight up don't like it.
I don't like any tablets and think they are basically useless when we already have laptop technology. So I guess I'm unbiased? Don't like ipads or playbooks so I guess just in my circle, a lot of people have been unhappy with the playbooks they got.
