Well they wanted to make the most UN iOS looking UI they could and they succeeded. Some folks will probably like the simple look. My issue with it looking like a toy is the colored keyboards. Until then I was okay but that really toys it up to me.
When the entire item is a trackpad why do you need to add one on.
And have to carry an extra piece. No thanks. I'd rather spend $130 to have that function in my device than the same (or some monthly rental charge) to have something I could leave in a hotel room. I suspect many others are the same.
the issue with the Playbook wasn't that it was wifi only. It was that it sucked and they pulled stupid moves like you couldn't read your email on it because there was no app for that. All you could do was mirror your blackberry email to it.
