    Playbook owners screwed by Blackberry

    Hello, so BlackBerry is joining other makers who treat Their customers with contempt,
    PlayBook is not going to receive the BB10 update, after reassuring owners they would,
    The ceo has been economical with the truth, and will loose many customers,
    And seeing how many Z10 /Q10 new returns are available and I can buy for half price,
    He has given windows phone sales a boost in UK, I still have yet to meet a Z10 owner,
    The good news for playbook owners is it's a brilliant tablet as it stands and will work for many years,
    I am keeping my playbooks but Z10 is going before its worthless, will cancel my order for Q5 now,
    I feel sorry for all playbook owners who trusted BlackBerry, me I am a cynic and never believed it would
    Happen, posted some time. Back, and when a brilliant site as this is supporting owners and the BlackBerry brand,

    For me, I'm going down with the ship if it comes to that. But it doesn't bother me in the present. This morning I have a really nice Z10 I'm typing on (writing this!) and my PlayBook is giving me the news via Nobex. My kids are asleep and my coffee is really good.

    Merlin, I do hear you though. It gets frustrating.

    This was definitely a crushing blow to Playbook owners. Whether the device still works as it did before as some people keep saying is irrelevant. I does nothing to soften the blow. I think BlackBerry is going to feel the negative affects of this decision, right or wrong. There will be and has been a lot of knee jerk reaction to this and I think it will continue for some time.

    Hi Joe, I am staying with playbooks ( bought 3 while going cheap) nothing else will match them, so not getting BB10 update does not matter, Blackberry have let down you and your colleagues for all your hard work and support you provide for owners of Blackberry products by providing this site,but on the phone side its different the playbook was one of a kind, my first Blackberry device which caused me to buy Z10,so Blackberry will loose future phone customers who owned playbooks, if only 10" playbook had arrived an original on steroids, I would have bought one but now the opportunity has passed, don't throw your playbooks out I still use Nokia Symbian phones and HP Touchpad (the 10"playbook would have replaced it and would have been better) I am not leaving while my playbooks continue to function, thanks for every ones efforts,

    I too will go down with this ship!! I love my PlayBook it works well for me I still hold a bit of hope that an updated Bridge is coming my ZED is awesome and most certainly will be keeping hold of it. I was on a training course this week and sat next to another engineer in the bar every night who was using a nexus7 my playbook which I have had since launch and have replaced two broken screens on out performed his new tablet running jellybean on all counts it handled documents better the calendar was better I even linked up with my office pc via splashtop as a demo and did a few tasks which blew him away ,All of this without BB10 I've said it before all I wanted was a definitive yes or no we now have it. To Quote OUR tag line Let's KEEP MOVING!!!!
    Keep up the good work Joe you and your team run a fantastic Site which is still my first click every morning before work while listening to local radio multitasking on the number 1 tablet as far as I'm concerned.

    Yeah I heard the bad new as well. I'm ticked off. The reason I got the Q10 instead of the Z10 is because I could bridge the Playbook and use it as a full touch screen.
    I didn't need both. I'll just have to be happy with being able to have web access. I love my Q10. But I was really looking forward to the upgrade. I had a full access bridge with my Storm 2.
    Now all that is in there is a Read me. With the Storm 2 I had Messages, Text Messages, Contacts,Calendar,BBM, MemoPad and Tasks. If your not gonna update Playbook to BB10, at least make the Bridge work like it did on previous phones. If it's not compatible, then you have to update to BB10. Not leave the Playbook owners out in the cold like this. I feel like I've been Duked. I can't let me Android buddies here about this. They will never let me live it down. LOL I'll get over it. But for right now? I'm ticked off.
