Re: BB10 for PB release date - TBA Jan. 30th?
Sorry but I don't buy it coming much sooner. Kermed stated in his thread a few days ago summer soonest and his post was detailed with lots of good info. Sure we might see a beta in spring but not official for quite a while~Matt

I'm gonna go with what @BlackBerrydev said about it being ahead of schedule. It just makes more sense to get it out ASAP. Its free marketing ,It looks good on their part,Devs want a union of 2.1 and BlackBerry10 and Rims been trying to cater to Devs. It shows RIM is serious.
BlackBerryDev says its ahead of schedule...we have all seen the road map...so if the Road map shows BB10 for PlayBook between Q1 and Q2 and its ahead of schedule,you would think its gonna land early Q1.
Guess we will all have a better idea here in a couple of weeks.I waited...It launched...Im still waiting...

I spoke with an old friend of mine lastnight, a senior product manager of blackberry security. He wouldn't confirm or deny the leaked roadmap and said they had not decided on the exact release date of BB10 for the playbook, I couldn't get anymore from him lol

No one here mentioned anything about charging for the upgrade OR BBM.
Sorry, BB-More is talking about how to get revenue from BBM on the PlayBook. As BBM on BlackBerry phones, RIM gets a share of money from charging for people to use BIS or BES. Having it totally open on the PlayBook means they don't have a revenue stream for BBM on the PlayBookLiving the world of Blackberry and a fan of the comeback!

Will a new PB need to be purchased to support BB10? Or will be be able to DM it over to our current devices? I'm saving so that i can get a BB10 withy qqwerty and no contract. Not going to be the cheapest thing......Good problem to haveSent using my PlayBook or my 9930.

I'm going with the Mobile Computing Platform mantra. BB10 needs to come out on PB as soon as possible. If PB or a successor tablet doesn't get mentioned then BB10 OS is just a phone OS. It needs to come out on other devices and be mobile as soon as possible. The best way to ensure BB10 for the PB is to buy the "PB mini" AKA the Z10 when it becomes available./ device agnosticism or bust!

End of presentation:
'Now, some of you are probably asking "but where is the existing user-base? How can I be confident I'm not wasting my time and money porting my application to BlackBerry 10? '
'...well, what if I were to say that we already had an existing user base of well over 2 million customers...?'
'Blackberry 10 is available, now, as an update to all of our existing BlackBerry PlayBook customers'
...this just happened in my dreams(!)
Would be a really smart marketing move, though.

Either way, I love my cut-price PlayBook to bits and have been very closely following RIM since purchase - will root for them whatever happens.

I doubt we'll even see a beta release for the Playbook until the BB10 phones have been on the market for 1-3 months. Definitely not before the phones are released.Z30, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2013), Playbook 16GB

I hear RIM is coming out with a whole new playbook that is thinner and that won't have such a thick boarder around the screen, the old playbook's will be updated to BB10 but that won't take place for another year or until the newer Playbook devices are in the marketplace.

I'd be very disappointed if at least a beta wasn't made available just after the launch. Apple release ios upgrades for past devices simultaneously. I personally wouldn't actually care if I didn't get the bb10 experience, I'd be just as happy with an upgrade which brought over the frameworks needed to run bb10 apps.
