    Hopefully they fix using one blackberry ID to be able to chat with users on the same account via PIN. I have 4 playbooks that all share the Blackberry ID. Otherwise this will be a problem for many users that share an account.

    Thats exactly what I believe. BB10 on Playbook on jan 30. Plus BBM on wifi. The Playbook just keeps getting better.

    I saw the story posted on Berry Review BlackBerry 10 and Native BlackBerry Messenger Coming to PlayBook Soon? - BerryReview and as much as I really want to believe that this will occur, I can't help but remain someone skeptical of it. What I'm particularly interested in is the comment from the author of the story on BerryReview that said, "This would coincide with a rumour I heard a couple weeks ago from an insider, that RIM was going to release BlackBerry 10 on the PlayBook two weeks before the BlackBerry 10 phone launch as a marketing strategy."

    I really hope that this happens - but when it comes to the Playbook, it is really hard not to be skeptical.
    The Z10 will be my last BB phone; switching platforms.

    Same way as Video Chat can connect to RIM's servers... It was coded to work without a BIS plan.

    I also remain a bit skeptical. But mostly because if it were true it wouldn't be buried in these forums, it would be more prominent. It's definetly news I eagerly await with 3 wifi PlayBooks in my house.

    I'm a bit sceptical because if BBM is coming with BB10 to PB, then why does the UI look exactly the same as PBOS2? I know for UX reasons it won't be identical but I'm certain it would look different from how it does now. They might release an update for PB allowing BBM to work when BB10 phones launch, but that doesn't look like BB10 on the PB yet..

    "rumored" and "confirmed" .. Oh my.

    The PlayBook already has video chat and BBM Voice is only logical evolution. So alas, the only "news" here is that Native BBM may finally be coming... you know...as has been rumored for many, many, many moons now. Sorry, not trying to rain on anyone's parade but come on now. There is so much double talk in all that info. "Rumored", "Confirmed", "Supposedly", "According to sources".

    And to top it all off, images that have clearly had their watermark scrubbed and a source point that doesn't even reference any of this supposedly rumored, comfirmed information. Not trying to take anything from BBIn, they're good people but I prefer to see something more solid then a bunch of scrubbed images and second hand info -- you should too.

    If anything comes out of this around the January 30th time frame, it will be a beta for PlayBooks and not a mass roll out. As it stands right now, I find it REAL hard to believe RIM has spent any vast amounts of resource time on the PlayBook. As of only a few weeks ago, they were still testing 2.1 builds and correcting those bugs. Realistically, it could even only be BBM on PlayBook beta and not a full BlackBerry 10 on PlayBook beta, just to keep in line with the phones somewhat. Delta updates would allow for JUST the BBM portion to be updated and bring a native solution with BBM Voice integrated.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is.. Don't set yourselves up for some self-induced let down based on this small piece of very fragmented info. It will leave you bitter.

    I'd be very surprised to see how they handle multiple pins under one BBID. For example, a 9900 and a PlayBook. Both of them have their own unique pin so would the BBID be able to recognize both devices and have chats synced between both (or more) devices???

    Don't be afraid to THANK or LIKE

    BBM: 7A03E5E9

    What is the ultimate BlackBerry? The ultimate BlackBerry would be a device with the screen size of the Z10 along with the physical keyboard of the Q10 and the battery life of the Z30. This, would be the ultimate BlackBerry. Why they haven't built it yet remains one of the greatest mystery of BlackBerry.

    Default Native bbm for Playbook confirmed for all models, with voice & video chat

    We all really knew this anyway when Frank Boulbon said it was coming along with BBM being tied to BBID instead of a pin along with the leaked bug reporter app in the 2.1 beta that showed BBM native for PlayBook was live internally along with an app called navigator. Lol but this is still awesome news. Btw this will be a paid subscription for those without a BlackBerry phone. Juat a FYI
