    Consistent with what everything BlackBerry has said since BlackBerry 10 was announced.

    No news here.

    Maybe BlackBerry is worried that if they push bb10 to playbook it may cause playbook owners to either delay or not purchase a phone????

    Mr Alec Saunders you know we are on the second month of the year , we are on february and you said "later this year", that means maybe after 11 months? You should say after a year minus a month.

    Sorry cant wait more, going to switch to windows 8 soon

    I don't think there are enough current playbook owners or Playbooks themselves to have them hold back for worries about the phone sales t. If they threw 10 t over to Playbook ASAP they would sell more app movies games etc for virtually no extra cost.

    I see you're a glass half-full kind'a guy?

    Yup. I guess even an 11-month bounded window is better than the previous vague OS update announcements. "Right around the corner" was my personal favourite.

    Great. See ya. I'm sticking with my OS2.1 which works really well. Before you go, please tell us what BB10 on Playbook will give you that you don't have now?

    I was waiting for a next generation of OS, more flexible and more options, but i think after some months it will be old, maybe we can have windows 9 or the next ipad

    I've gone from loving phones to loving tablets. My 9900 gets used to guess what make phone calls. It really wouldn't get touched much if it wasn't for me using whatsapp and BBM groups. OS10 on the playbook is expecting to have a full BBM experience along with Skype and whatsapp. I would much rather buy a LTE PlayBook running OS10 first then a phone later once the holiday sales roll around. With that being said I'm not 100% committed to buying a Q10 at launch.

    We will miss you and all your 40 posts. Hope you enjoy your new device.


    As much as I agree that he could have picked better words for his reply, there is really nothing new here. Later this year can be Dec/13 as well as Feb 1st...

    As for mashing the OS update... I'm sure it will be all over twitter, facebook, blogs and forums when it hits. No need to stress out....

    later this year means the second half of the year, so after the summer
    looks like when all the old PB are sold out than a newer version will come out with BB10 installed, think about October to sell for the holiday season
    with an option for the old PB can upgrade to BB10

    again delays, and delays - we waited now one year for OS10
    introduction of OS10 Z phone end of January, but you can not get the phone until middle of march here in the US
    Q10 in April
    but big advertisement during superball

    they have not figured out how to run PB with OS10 to be bridged with a BB Phone running 7,1
    just internet, but not the other apps, and some phone remote control
    Current PB owners are not their priority
    they need to sell Z10 and Q10 phones
    meanwhile our beloved PB will be a cutting board to serve cheese on

    my BB phone contract ends in July, this will be my decision date, and / or moving-on day
    and it looks like a windows 8 phone and win8 tablet now

    Is that Win 8 RT or Win 8 Pro? The Pro sounds nice but I can buy PBs for the whole family (6 of us) for less than one Win8Pro tablet.
