any rumored surprises for the playbook at bb world?
im hoping rim releases a big knock-off-your-pants update for the playbook and gives uses all the features we want.
even just adding the auto correction feature would be nice.Firepowr.net

There are 2 big things coming by the "start of Blackberry World." I know many of you will doubt the veracity of my statement when I tell you I was asked not to talk about it. We should be getting an update around May 1. That is all I can say.

yeah i am guessing they aint holding back anything right now really as far as general function. Some more advanced stuff they might be but autocorrect and getting BBM on the bridge would be pushed out ASAP

In the recent Engadget interview with RIM's Ryan Bidan, Ryan said that there will be some announcements made at Blackberry World. I have no idea what they will be. Presumably, this is something beyond the video store which Ryan said is coming this summer.
I am hoping that there will be something more than just "announcements," like this new amazing feature will be available "this summer." I am hoping that we will see some definite things going on and imminent releases.
Personally, I am pretty happy with the Playbook's basic features. What we really need is more polish (little things like the ability to rotate an adobe acrobat attachment) and bug fixes (Bridge improvements, some browser issues).

actually allowing hulu plus and getting a netflix app would be huge IMO. you already can play amazon stuff. Most people probably have netflix or hulu plus already so that would mean no extra cost. adding another "paid" service just doesnt sound good

I'm expecting some big announcements with RIM locking down big name apps and services that the Playbook really needs right now. Netflix, Hulu, etc would be HUGE like howarmat stated.You can't reason a person out of an opinion he didn't reason himself into.

I can get the streaming I need through HBOtoGo and MAXtoGo, I'm thinking about downloading and watching without a network connection (and I don't want to discuss torrents - before this hijacked thread gets hijacked), i.e. on a plane. Can amazon purchases transfer?
