    Default Best Buy OS2 Site up and Running!

    Check it out they have it on their site now BlackBerry PlayBook with PlayBook OS 2.0 - Best Buy Canada

    I'm glad RIM is finally paying attention to the small details for marketing that are really important! Even if a few hundred people look at this that's a good sales opportunity that they seized, I like it!
    I feel cooler with my playbook already! haha

    ** edit, the only thing is why are they advertising the video store for Canada? I thought this was only in the States?,.. kind of false advertising.

    I was just going to ask people in the States if they had seen anything? To be honest you guys I think need it more their than we do here! Hopefully they will do something about that!

    interesting that it does confirm the twitter and kindle apps. unless they're resorting to false advertising again.

    It also looks like this confirms Kindle (named specifically) and Zinio (implied) will be available for 2.0. Of course we knew about Zinio as they stated at CES 2012 it would be available soon on the PB. It looks like of most these were being saved for the 2.0 release maybe as a big multi announcement launch event. If so it is what I had been expecting and thought was part of the reason for the silence. It's not just about 2.0 but an media launch event coordinated with other major vendor's Playbook app launches and possibly even some other Rim product announcements leading i to Mobile World Congress. Maybe even the Netflix and Skype apps many are asking for?? Anything's possible, I've seen this happen before with another platform and a major revision launch. There were quite a few similar circumstance for that platform years ago as there is with RIM today. History repeating itself but successfully this time, time will tell?? Wouldn't it great if for once they stole Apple's thunder?

    I wish Rim would pull the playbook and all bb's from bestbuy, perhaps then bestbuy would care to educate their staff especially in Canada where BB rules the airways and the playbook is growing strong. Bestbuy's staff, and therefore bestbuy is more responsible for hindering sales then helping.

    To play devil's advocate for a moment; there are apps already on App World that handle twitter. This may simply refer to those rather than intimate that a Blackberry Twitter app is on its way.

    And the funny thing is, that smiling guy in the blue Best Buy shirt - just last week, he was telling customers, "PlayBook. Are kidding me? They're being discontinued. Here, check out this Galaxy Tab."

    Agreed - all other mention of the Video Store was that it was USA only.

    Yeah and it is kind of bugging me now, even though I am almost certain that they said only States to start I am wondering, maybe they will include in Canada? lol I am not going to get my hopes up though!

    It was previously said that Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn would be fully integrated with the contact app. My best bet is they will have native apps in order to sync everything.

    I was wondering if a fiction writer penned that stuff. There is also mention of the video store. Is all of this coming next week? Or are we again, leaping the competition when the EXPECTED OS2 finally launches?

    Love my PB. Found many many uses for it. But, can't help but think that RIM would have saved themselves ALOT of agony by having what we're about to get, out on April 19th. (Launch date for those who have trouble reading between the lines)

    RIM stated that, at first, the video store would only be available to US customers, and that it would be coming to Canada later in the year. Perhaps whatever the hold up was (I'm guessing licensing) has been rectified? Who knows? Time will tell.

    If I recall, I think RIM said the video store is coming with the launch of OS2.0 in the USA. It will be later for everyone else.

    1) I don't think "native" Twitter app is coming. It's still the same link to the twitter webpage, although you do get Twitter messages through the unified inbox.

    2) The kindle app is probably a port of the Android app unless RIM/Amazon manages to completely surprise me.

    3) I won't be surprised if they can get video store up and running in Canada.


    Can't wait for OS2.0 to come!
