    Thanks....while I have been a BB advocate for years, I am starting to wonder with all the goings on with Rim, Apples progees and constant change, am I in the position I was some years back when PalmPilot could just not navigate the future and held onto to old ideals thinking people would not change? I think I shall return the playbook.... even though for some reason I hate to say this...kinda feel like I hav been deserted by a good old friend ....ha

    On launch day, I'm not sure. But for sure it will happen on 2.0.

    There's an app available on App World called ReelPortal Private which allows you to video chat easily. Just go onto it, put in your first name, give your chatroom a name, and tell your friends to go to reelportal.com to enter into your video chat room. You can have 4-5 people on at a time - no need to create an account or download anything !!! Goodbye Skype !!

    Hello mcguiver, and welcome to

    Sorry to hear that you feel like that, using the best and easiest side loading tool, DDPB, to bring Android applications to the BlackBerry PlayBook which was unheard of last year.

    It's only because of RIM's feature of enabling Development Mode that this is all made possible for many PlayBook users who realize that the BlackBerry PlayBook is something very special to several users now, especially myself, I love my PlayBook.

    Obviously, everyone has their own personal experiences and opinions regarding the BlackBerry PlayBook, but not everyone has the patience, understanding, or the technical skills either to use tools to access many other features of this wonderful tablet.

    Thank you.

    Perhaps you could explain more about side loading and what it is. I use skype on my other machine and find hte IMO only does voice thats removes alot of users. Perhaps I am missign something.....that I can learn. I do find the wireless connections varies a lot in singnal strenght from the same location in my house and at times the touch screen does not work. I have to reboot the machine to get it to work correctly.....perhaps some tech insight would help me....thanks kindly
