You still seem reluctant to believe that I understand your point.
My wife has a Blackberry because I have a Blackberry and we wanted to use PIN messaging. Same idea.
I didn't get her a Samsung because they can't PIN message with a Blackberry.
I don't think RIM will lose many customers because of the lack of Skype but they may not gain any new ones.
Every OS has their own thing. BB has BBM, iOS has Facetime...

I think I will switch to a Windows 8 phone and Tablet next year when my phone contract ends in June 2013
The RT tablet version sounds reasonable priced
While I really like the size of the PB but I am getting tired of the workarounds I have to do to make a Skype call
I travel with my laptop again, and leave it in the hotel room, during the day I just carry my PB
The idea is to travel with the tablet only, he most important is my database in Outlook, but my BB 9780 does not have enough space for my 23,000 contacts
So I sync them with a gmail email account and have it as a native email on my PB, but I can not see the native mail via the bridge, I need WIFI
Like I said, a lot of workarounds
at least with MS products I know I have one system

Trying to get back to the topic.
I understand BB10 is quite close in design and technical base to the PB OS (QNX...).
Hardware issues aside (battery life, WiFi/GPS sensitivity), I quite like the PB as it is and find its native apps (mail, contacts, browser) pretty mature and well thought off.
What would be the main driver to upgrade, especially if one looses one's applications purchased through the AppWorld (incl. some nice EA games)? There are a lot of presentation of BB10 compared to the older phones OS, but I am not quite sure what will be radically different on the PlayBook.

And both of us has valid reasons... amazing, isn't?
