    There's another thread with the device being discussed. I'm not sure if there's an answer yet.

    No the playbook won't work with this at this time. Only the chrome browser and the current apps that come loaded for the device will work for now. They released the sdk so hopefully someone will add an app or to an app to make this possible on the PB down the road. Lots of youtube reviews on the device if you are interested.

    Things are going to get very interesting for this device. That is if Google can make them fast enough.

    There is an APK out for the aircast app beta that folks have working on the Z10, doubt it is of any use for the playbook though.

    You can run an application like "Phone my Pc" or something similar (this one is good, and you can access your/any pc anywhere, does not have to be on the same wifi network), and you can "control" the casting from Playbook.

    I have/am casting Amazon Prime with this method. It does mean you are running another peice of hardware, but it will do for now.

    It will come.....

    If only we could remove the POS playbook operating system and put and even worse POS droid OS on board, then we could use the PB in the mobile computing future

    There's an app called cheapcast that makes an android device act like an chromecast. If it could converted to run on the playbook it could be used as a pass through like the chromecast.

    If we could remove the droid code out of the pb, it might be able to run bb10?

    Problem is that nothing new in the droid world will convert to work on the playbook.

    Well could also take out the pb OS and make it a new droid machine. Just thinking that's all!

    Thinking again? What have we told you about thinking? Keep it up and the MIB dudes in the black suits and mirrored sunglasses will be trying to subcontract you out to Rimberry.
