    playbook not getting update ??

    Hi i have been a playbook owner for over two years now, and after many updates it has become a brilliant tablet,
    it would appear that after being assured it would be updated to BB10, the CEO is avoiding the question of update,
    so my be it cannot run BB10 successfully, or we are being abandoned, as he stated that if he could not make money on tablets
    then no interest, strange many other manufacturers are making profits from tablets,
    i posted that we playbook owners will be shafted and unless the playbook is updated or Blackberry say it will definitely will not be updated,
    then they have been economical with the truth, i like the Z10 , sadly i will look for a replacement and sell it, playbook stays no other tablet can replace it, this behaviour by Blackberry is not the way to keep customers,
    waynemack and proto minet like this.

    Sadly, a BB10 update for the PlayBook was not mentioned at BlackBerry Live and yes, our CEO has not exactly said anything to give us hope that it will come. I believe that at this moment in time, the resources they have are being focused on our handsets. As we all know, BlackBerry has had some bad bruises and black eyes in the past 2 years. Many, many have declared BlackBerry dead. Well, that is beginning to change! And it's changing because of where they are putting their money and time. That being said, I am confident that it will indeed come. Even if a decision is made and publicly announced that BB10 has been scrapped, I will be disappointed but still happy to have a great tablet that I enjoy using on a daily basis. (I'm using it right now to write this!)

    Have a great day and let's keep bope alive!
    BB then, now, forever!

    Thanks Harmeling68 for your post, yes it's been hard For BlackBerry and looks like they may be on the road to recovery,
    But if BlackBerry announce that no update is happening, then sad as that may be, they will have More credibility With
    PlayBook owners, and if it receives updates to flash player etc that would be a consolation, using mine to write this,
    Yes it's in my experience the best 7" Tablet, found a new 64GB playbook for 100GBP as a spare so will be using playbook For a while.
    The Q5 might be a seller if price is right, but Q10. Is way to high for younger buyer's.

    Hi Harmeling68, hope you get white Q10 soon, my source has Q10 black/White new returns second day after launch, and Z10`s, (new phone with box seal broken )
    tempted to get spare Z10 in white, for $230 off list price.

    I agree Merlin29 I will be pretty pissed if they don't bring bb10 to the pb but at least if they announced it and put us out of our misery I could enjoy future keynotes more as I sat through both live and the jam on the edge of my seat waiting for something to be said and to make matters worse I'm still waiting for my carrier to push through 10.1 to my Z10 so all in all I've had a frustrating couple of days

    Hi waynemack, yes the carriers are a pain here in UK as well, ( thats why i went sim free, and swap sim to find carrier who updatesfirst ) all phone makers should do as Apple does take control of updates, no i`m not Apple fan, Blackberry/ Nokia phones only,Z10 up date brings Skype at last, have family in Canada so can video call, one thing is Skype a Android app adapted?as i am getting process has stopped relaunch not every time, this reminds me of my old Android phone that is the reason i moved to Blackberry, i have not had a Z10 app pre installed do this they all work without fault, the Z10 browser is still the best one its so quick to load beats the playbook,

    PlayBook. Update ?

    In April 2011, have waited to see the playbook reach its present state through many updates,
    If it remains in its present state a brilliant tablet, and unrivalled build quality and underrated,
    It was stated that playbook would be updated to BB10 shortly after BB10 launch on 30th January,
    We are now creaking into June, then BlackBerry CEO said he sees tablets will be dead in five years,
    No point selling tablets, It's a Matter of keeping one's word, and customers trust,
    Why say playbook will be updated, better to say nothing,then surprise your playbook owners
    By just updating without warning, this uncertainty is not good public relations,
    And will cost BlackBerry many customers who will move to another OS on a matter of principal.
