While I like to play around with this stuff, it shouldn't be that much work ALL of the time. I got an iPad 2 instead.
    I've had iPads, and to be honest, I don't need that many apps, and I love the multitasking more on the PB. Browser on PB is better because of flash support. And most of the time I just use the browser anyway, or bridge to my BB. So the PB is perfect for me.

    I understand your pain points on apps though. That will be fixed by the time BB 10 roles around. See you back soon!

    I missed that as well......for about a couple of days anyway until I got used to the iOS way of doing it. Instead of gestures I just gotta hit the home button twice and then choose the app that I want to switch to.

    The browser was a HUGE complaint for me. I can't tell you the number of times the browser on my PB would just up and dump out on me. Once it would start doing it, it would do it 4,5, or 6 times until I would finally just reboot the device. And flash.......meh. There is only 1 website that I can think of that I browse on a regular basis that I have to seek out a PC so that I can view the page.

    As the saying goes, "never say never", but the PB is going to have to grow by leaps and bounds to get me back. Side by side bone stock right out of the box, the only edge the iPad has over the PB - albeit a pretty big edge. But once a jailbreak is applied to the iPad the PB is lapped in in no time.

    These are all just my opinions and are by no means meant as bashing the PB.

    Who knows? Cmwdotme got a BB10 Dev Alpha device so my guess is he has been messing with that thing. Feel free to tweet to him.

    I too feel that the Playbook is perfect for me. With the built in Flash I don't need an app because I can access the site directly on the browser. Now sometimes there are browser compatability issues where the site requires a certain add-on. For example, DishOnline.com requires a Widevine media addon to watch movies online and the add-on in not available for PB browser.

    Not sure, but I think that the DingleBerry project has been abandoned or put on hold for awhile.
