120 days... is today
Aug. 17th, 2011 marks 120 since the launch of the Playbook in North America. By all means, it still needs a bit of work, features missing, etc. Do we still wait? and hope? Does RIM have any chance of coming through with any meaning updates that add to the device, rather than Adobe Flash updates?
RIM reports earning for Q2 on September 15th and it'll be interesting if "shipped" turns into "sold" Playbook units... Still waiting RIM...

I don't know why you're getting so emotionally attached calaviqpfza4 (seriously worst forum nic ever) .
I don't even think you own a Playbook.
Their earnings report will most likely be pretty decent since they have a very strong foothold in developing markets.Limited functionality and miles behind the i-products or not.

Not expecting it but I hope they put out something soon to shut everyone up including myself. No matter how much I complain about mssing function I could care less about email and pim, give me the rest. I do know if they are going to sell to users of other devices it needs it all.
So I dare you RIM, shut us up all ready.Sent from me using my fingers. Be pantless in 5K. Febreze - for more than smells.

I'm no more qualified to say so because I own a BlackBerry

120 Days...I never imagined I would be waiting this long, I thought 60 days was a long time...

With the apparent 'failure' of just about every non-iPad tablet (Galaxy Tab 10" reports about 500k sold), some will bail out of the tablet market and some will learn lessons from prior release strategies. With limitations on data usage and tethering by AT&T and Verizon, the field is changing. A ' relaunch' of the Playbook with the Android player and native PIM in September could set RIM up for an interesting holliday shopping season.
Other tablets were either just given up on by their manufacturers or were given one (maybe two) updates. At least RIM seems committed to moving the Playbook forward.Why is it that when your contract commitment is up, the phone you always wanted is now old and the phone you now want won't be out until the next quarter? - Checkout Planet Loser on Channel C003DAB77
