I'm a huge playbook user, and I think it's such a wonderful tablet. Changed my life
What will we loose on the playbook with BB10?
Ability to load Android BAR?
How would bridge work? In theory would it be between any BB10 phones/tablet?
Shift from "main" orientation: all apps will be primary developped for portrait phones?
And with this update, is there a brighter future for playbook?
How can RIM ever make profit from such a good tablet at a price of 130$??
(Although I cant see how they can make profit with BB10 hardware if they don't already make some with older and cheaper phones now...

I assume BB10 won't slow down the Playbook? I know there was a discussion above about old computers, but here in the 21st Century new OS's seem to challenge processors that are not bang up to date.Z10 OS 10.3.1.038 (STL 100-2)

Now I have a tablet with a 1.0 Ghz CPU, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage for under $140.00 or 1/20th the price of my first PC. To be fair, the monitor is smaller and there is no printer included.Z30, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2013), Playbook 16GB

The Playbook platform is about 20 months old now. If we can get another 20 months out of the current hardware using BB10 that will be about the end of it's natural life anyway.
Hopefully at that time there is enough of a user base to warrant the next generation of Playbook hardware. Hard to say really, technology advances so fast.Z30, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2013), Playbook 16GB

It will open up the possibility for more people to complain about flashing lights, battery drain, unable to connect to wifi, checkerboarding, slow browser, unable to sideload some bar files,apps closing, playbook shutting down, inability to downgrade to os 2 or os 1 or whatever, can't root, can't debrick, won't work, whens bb11 coming out,,,,too slow,,,,this is crap, gonna buy an ipad, or a galaxy, or a commadore 64 or a whatever....

BB10 will give us skype and netflix, the only apps of any interest missing. It's funny that people criticize those who complain about not having these two apps, yet clamour for a new OS. I thought the Playbook was great? Doesn't that mean that the QNX OS is great too?
Someone is full of **** here.

I guess what BB10 will bring really depends on whether it hurts performance and whether it really will widen the app selection to some notable missing apps.
I have a different perspective to people who've owned Playbooks from the start. I'm new, I don't use the bridge, and my Playbook is mostly limited to entertainment rather than productivity. Being new, I already feel I have "perfection - minus Skype" in the Playbook with its current OS. I love what my Playbook does well (especially movies - something done worse by all the other tablet offerings with their much more limited codecs) and it also feels super-responsive (I've not tried other tablets so I have no comparisons). So I don't feel a burning need for a new OS, but if BB10 means more recognition by app developers for other platforms, that's only a good thing and I would love that - AND I would love Skype too.
