Playbook media thoughts

I've been demoing the Playbook for the last 2 weeks now and I'm quite enjoying it. For eBook reading a recomend skipping the Kobo eReader unless you excusivley purchase Kobo eBooks, what I've used instead is a program called EPUB Reader and it works great, it does only work with non-DRM epubs but I'm sure this will be remedied in future versions.
The Podcast and Media players are very similar to the ones on the handhelds, no real difference at all.
One thing that is missing is a library synchronization between the two devices, I understand that this kind of feature has been removed by design but I believe that there should be settings to allow it. Currently your only option is to sync both devices with your computer.
Next up is the wait for the Android software, looking forward to this.
