Running an iPhone app on an iPad you are blowing up an app, so won't we be going the other way?

    Correct me if I'm wrong here someone...
    The resolution won't be higher on the first BB 10 phone than the PlayBook - but the PPI (pixel per inch) will be a lot higher because it's a much smaller screen. So images will look very sharp and crisp aka Retina display.

    PlayBook = 1280 x 768 resolution
    Z10 = 1280 x 768 resolution (touchscreen phones will be standardized to 1280 x 720 with the 2nd BB 10 touchscreen phone)
    X10 = 720 x 720 resolution

    BB10 will help with software support and developers. The OS could look exactly the same for me and I would be fine. It's moving forward with one platform, that's the key.

    I think the display resolution may be an issue more than anything.

    And that's still the case in a number of areas. I could easily rename a bunch of files that were *.tx to *.txt without some much as blinking!!! I still don't think I can do that with Win Explorer.

    I like how BlackBerry 10 is evolving, but when are they going to fix BlackBerry Link for Mac?

    The fact that it doesn't reliably do what it's supposed to do ... most of the time ... is utterly appalling. The only consistency is the "Music not copied to Z10 message"

    Simply put PlayBook Will benefit because Hockey will be starting by the end of the month and Hockey will be better with BB10. I'm the troll on this discussion.

    True. However, the proportions are roughly the same. For the vast majority of programs it shouldn't be an issue. The odd one might need some tweaking.

    I am curious, though, whether there will be any UI changes for BB10 when it comes to the PlayBook. On the phones, it clearly stresses portrait orientation. Would a BB10 tablet maintain the current app carousel? Or would it depend on the vertical-scrolling Active Frames? Conceivably, it could use the side-scrolling carousel in landscape, and AF in portrait, but that would be inconsistent.

    PlayBook = 1280 x 768 resolution

    X10 = 720 x 720 resolution
    So that's why they went with 1280 x 768 for the Z10, same as the playbook; that makes a ton of sense for this first critical launch, they get to leverage playbook apps perfectly. Later, with the 5% change from 768 to 720 it may not be as big of deal as by then they should have way more developer support and hopefully the successful launch of the Z10.

    THE PLAYBOOK IS NOT 1280x768...its 1024x600.

    your whole theory is incorrect.
