    All quiet on the Playbook Front?

    Well the playbook forums are dead! a quick look in tells me that all is not well with the Playbook.

    The hopes and dreams of BB10 in the new year are a faint memory from over 6 months ago, with no dates from Blackberry and more conferences going by with less and less mentions of Playbook, it would seem that we have been dangled a carrot that we will never get to have.

    Initially we were told Playbook would get BB10 after the BB10 launch device, but with 2 phones out now Z10 and Q10, more devices are being readied, i think that BB10 for the Playbook is no longer any form of priority for Blackberry. After the last conference it left me with almost no doubt that given the choice the BB10 for playbook would be left to the janitor.

    I did have great hopes for the playbook and my next phone hinged on how i got on with BB10 on the playbook, i thought i would have loads of time to get to grips with it before my phone upgrade time came along, but its now here and my Playbook still doesn't have BB10, so do i risk a BB10 phone? could it be another Playbook? i think so....

    My playbook is good, dont get me wrong, and anyone with half a brain can see its got some real potential, but it lacks the spit and polish in the os, BB10 was a dream to give us this, but its so far away still and its already felt like an eternity of waiting.

    A quick look in BBOS news and its apps only for BB10, nothing new for playbook, just a growing list of second hand and mostly second rate android apps, no development, no updates and still no sign of BB10 i think its time to sell up and move on..

    Keep hope alive! I'm not giving up on it yet, my faith is strong and I still enjoy it just as it is.

    Hi Harmeling68, i agree still hope, its a good tablet despite not many apps, which are not really needed, and it has the ace feature flash player,all of the web is available, and its excellent screen and build quality, no other 7" tablet can match it, even if BB10 never comesenjoy the playbook as it is one of a kind.

    Hate to say it but they screwed all us playbook users, no bb10 for us, we'll this is my last bb product, don't lie to me and expect me to support your business. I was looking with interest at a z10 but no way now, Samsung supported my s2 way beyond what I expected. 4.1.2 now and some of the features only just out on the s4, that is support and over 2 years after I bought it, unlike my 8 month old playbook and bbs lies about bb10. Bye bye blackberry my kids can have this now 7 inch galaxy tab here I come and yes I can then have netflix.
