I'll just say this because on this forum I am considered a newbie even though I have been in this business for over 30 years. BB10 Beta for PB will be out by the end of Feb 2013. I will be back on this thread on March 1, 2013 to say I told you so. I am using an internal build on a 64gb Playbook as we speak. It's very buggy, it lags a bit, but it's for the most part all there.

I apologise for this having only read the last few threads but if there's anything you should know by now is that if it isn't broken don't fix it.
P's. Z10 and pb loses almost everything on bridge connection, fact. BB10 release date for pb unknown. Bridge compatibility with pb running Z10 and 7.1 phones unknown.
So basically we are all BlackBerry mushrooms.
Kept in the dark, fed on **** and everything happens overnight.
Now you know, grab the brandy and relax.

When its upgraded to BB10, im assuming you'll have to upgrade at some point but for now your "near functional" playbook can be left as is.

Considering the pb has been around for two years
Considering if BlackBerry listened to this forum, (but I'm told they dont)
Considering this forum has more knowledge of blackberrys products than they do
Why is the Z10 a pb in miniature? Screen gestures, account hub etc etc
Now after we have developed bb10 for blackberry, they reward us with a bb10 phone that might as well be a Samsung SIII as far as bridge is concerned and then have the balls to throw the pb users, (the bb10 developers) a bone in the guise of a bb10 beta!!!!!!!!!!
And you wonder why I drink brandy

I sorry to bring (what might be) a small amount of logic to this discussion, but as far as I see it (thinking about how BlackBerry have been advancing so far), would it not seem more logical that the developer beta for Playbook be made available once (or just before) the release of the Q10?
What I'm trying to point out is that the developers were given tools for apps for the Z10 to start with to build apps for that (as it was launching first).
Then they were given (yesterday, or just after the launch of the Z10) the tools for apps for the Q10
The next logical step is for BlackBerry to give the developers the tools for BB10 for Playbook once the Q10 is out the door.
What it seems like, and I understand why they are doing it if this is the case, is that BlackBerry are giving each platform (Z10, Q10, Playbook) the full attention of the developers for a time before launching the product. It means that a developer is more focussed on the next platform, and not splitting their attention between different models.
I might seem nuts, but I would have thought the developer toolkits for BB10 on Playbook would be made available once everything for the Q10 is sorted (April/ May from what Thor said yesterday). Then after a month of two, once the devs have had time to make the adjustments, then BB10 for PB will be made available for the PlayBook owning public.
Just my idea of the situation, I might be completely wrong.

From reading all the Z10 threads the only people with a desire to own a Z10 are the people that don't yet own one. Most of those that do have returned them included numerous friends of mine. Why do I find myself constantly trying to find work arounds to make my bb work as it should do. Isn't that RIM's job?"We are the Pilgrims, master; we shall go Always a little further: it may be Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow Across that angry or that glimmering sea"

P's I can't even find the radio icon on my two Z10s but everyone tells me it has a radio on it somewhere, they just don't say where it is. Typical!"We are the Pilgrims, master; we shall go Always a little further: it may be Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow Across that angry or that glimmering sea"
