    I would love it. Especially if I knew it would be getting the BB 10 update like the PlayBook.

    May be if I look at it from another angle I would understand some of these responses:
    What apps do u use on your smartphone and what would the equivalent be on the PB 2.1 phone and are they as capable?
    What are some of the common tasks you perform/features used on your smartphone and how would you do it on the PB2.1 OS?

    For example for apps:
    Whatspp, msn, google, facebook, googlemaps, runkeeper, shazaam, tsmobiles, Skype, foursquare

    Some common features:
    1. bedside clock
    2. app interoperability/integration especially around contacts both local contacts on contacts from online services
    3. third-party app notifications

    May be I didn't read the post right. But it seems to ask if you would buy a phone running OS2.1 as it is on the PB but with native BBM added. Did I get it right?

    Since PB 4G (is it 4G?) Is comin out, very possible those. Are comin!

    But some of them really should be here anyway for wifi usage

    1. I use flipclock
    2. I'd like to see that too... But then I have my current hs for that and deleting emails on 2 platforms is a right pain in the arse.. But then again if the pb/phone replaced my
    Current handset sure I'd be grand.

    3. Notifications, I get messages for blaq that suits me rightly

    @wbeckle, yes. And as jay pointed out, with 4G PB coming, so will many of those features.

    So while the device would be pretty limited at first. It would be a slate that would be able to update very easily.

    Oh I see the line of thinking now.

    I would definitely use a mini PB as a phone. It would be better if it had a physical keyboard for me, though. I do love the OS
