    Default 2.1 Apps running on 10

    Does anyone here happen to know if current apps running on 2.1 will work on 10? I would hate to loose them after upgrading to 10 in the future. Spent a whack of money for them. Noticing some new apps on App World requiring 10.0.0 or higher.

    don't worry, as there will never be a BB10 on Playbook, you don't have to rebuy your stuff >

    I just don't really think that they will release a BB10 for the Playbook.

    But yes, I thought also about this, IF, would the apps be still working or would they need an update/upgrade and how much...

    Could you give us an example of app anouncing 10.0.0 in app world?

    What I can say is

    - RIM announced a number of times that indeed 10 will be available for Playbooks, only after the phones launch, there is a number of threads here on this with lots of refs to RIM announcements etc.

    - many app developers are currently working on ports for 10 (I personally know some of them), so there will be differences, maybe only improvements

    - I don't know about the compatibility; of course like most of us I expect some, would it be in a 'minimalist' setup.
    Also, I am relatively confident, because indeed the objective for RIM will be to announce the actual existence of a bunch of already available apps upon 10 launch, a bit like Apple did when they started the iPad: they had all iPod touch apps available in an "enlarged" mode to start with. That's almost exactly what I expect here.

    Rim has already stated that BB10 update will come to PB.

    the next time I will put irony/sarcasm tags in my post.

    I'm aware what RIM anounced but I'm very sceptical what they deliver. And when.

    Default 2.1 Apps running on 10

    BB10 will run 1.xxxx and 2.xxxxx apps, but these aren't running BB10 apps.

    And yes BB10, will be available for the PB, right after the phones come out, according to RIM's callendar!

    Most apps should run without a problem. There may be a few that might need a change our two, as some APIs may have been changed, but that should be a simple convert and recompile, and update.

    RIM has stated plenty of times that the PlayBook will get BB10. They even repoted that the beta will be launched ahead of schedule, so please, don't post about stuff you're not familiar with. Spreading misinformation does no one any good.

    How much is a whack of money? I've only spent a large chunk of money...
    I used to be indecisive, now I'm not so sure.

    I am sceptical of your scepticism. You say you are sceptical but I am not convinced. How can we be sure that when BB10 becomes available for PB you won't just install and run it anyways? You can believe BB10 will never come for the PB and that is your prerogative. All it means is that your believe is incorrect.
