    Default One Number... NOT on PLAYBOOK! WTF!!!!

    I just got a txt from Rogers Wireless indicating that Rogers One Number is now available on IPAD's and Android Tablets...WTF

    I have been asking for this on my Playbook for a long time now. I feel like thats a slap in the face again to the Playbook...

    What is everyone else's thoughts?

    I've pretty much gotten used to the Playbook being left out of everything. You see a cool app on tv and it's always for iPad or Android. Hopefully things will change with BB10 but sadly I'm not holding my breath.

    This is only speculation but I would bet that due to the fact that the current PB OS is going to be shortlived, the BB10 OS will have it at launce.

    We'll probably be "stuck" with BlackBerry Tablet OS 2.1 for at least 6 months before BlackBerry OS 10 makes its way to our tablets. The BlackBerry PlayBook should already be running BlackBerry OS 10 if it is really ready for release in 1Q2013 on the smartphones.

    As has been discussed in other threads, it wouldn't be prudent to launch BB10 on PB before the phones.

    There will be beta testing for BB10 on the PlayBook just like there was for 2.0 and 2.1. And it may be as soon as BB10 phones hit the market.

    It is all a matter of when now. It seems RIM has all pieces in place already.

    Oh yes it would be very prudent as a marketing strategy. If BlackBerry OS 10 on the BlackBerry PlayBook is slick and feature-complete, the BlackBerry 10 smartphones would sell like hotcakes in 1Q2013.

    Beta testing has been ongoing with BlackBerry OS 10 on the BlackBerry PlayBook. Maybe you and I do not have it but some RIM employees have been playing with it for months.

    Why would they take the hype away from the phone launch buy having it on the PB? Excitement is growing and people are watching to see what BB10 is going to be bringing to the table. I have a PB and trust me, I'd love to have it brought out now for personal use, but as a completely new platform, in order to get the maximum coverage and response, the PRUDENT thing to do is to wait until it is ready for a full scale launch in both markets.

    I'm thinking that since most of the people who have been loyal to BB and the Playbook are the hardcover fans, maybe it would be prudent to release it on the PB ASAP. I personally now know no one who uses a BB . They are underwhelmed when I show them my 9930 but pretty excited when they see the Playbook. If OS 10 was on the Playbook now, it would be pretty good advertising (since RIM is not known for their's). I love my Playbook, and I'd like to see BB10 blow everyone else out of the water. Sorry, I think I got a little off of the original topic.

    I've been playing with windows 8 on my laptop, and am really impressed with how slick it is - not sure I see a lot of ways that bb10 is supposed to be vastly different or superiour from a consumer point of view. the gestures are even very similar. same with the whole active tiles thing. the longer they wait, the harder it will be.

    My thought is, since 99% of tablet owners own iPad or Android, 99% of all apps are ported only to these devices---and "WTF" is an epic overreaction for such an obscure, carrier-specific app.
