Playbook hide and seek
Now I clearly understand that with the Z10 launch there has been limited postings on CB about the playbook. But I have a few questions:
Is BB10 going to be launched on playbooks?
Has the Playbook been run out of town?
I ask this because one of my boys asked about getting a charging dock for his playbook (we have 4 playbooks between kids and wife and 14 playbooks within immediate family - you know the ones you see at thanksgiving, easter, xmas, etc) - anyways, I went searching online for said dock only to find that Staples, Best Buy and Future Shop not only didn't have the dock, didn't have a single playbook available for sale?
Any info on future of PB?
Yes Kevin, I know I can buy a dock on CB
Loving the Z10 experience and even managed to convince my wife not to upgrade until later in year and to take my Z10 should a hot new BB10 device come out!!

modifiedslimmed down version we have no clue. The Playbook is still on display at some stores that I have been to, so I dont know if its EOL just yet, until another generation comes out it seems the retailers are trying to burn through existing stock as best they can. BestBuy still has the playbook up on the online store, but it says not available at any nearby stores or online. Your best bet for the dock would either be here or amazon. Got mine off Amazon for 45 shipped im pretty sure.

I also have a number of playbooks among my family and friends. Everyone is still using them and getting a lot of enjoyment from them.
I have the charging dock and it is the primary place I put the PB when I'm not using it. It's a good accessory. Did you check ebay?
Thor has committed BlackBerry to releasing BB10 for the PB later this year. He also said he sees a tablet as an essential part of the BB10 ecosystem, or words to that effect. Hinting another one might be coming in the future, but only if BB10 is going gangbusters. Don't think they want another "failed" launch.

2-no,,, but it's become a stepchild of sorts lately...
you can also look on Amazon for a dock,,, i think i got mine for less than $20/US,,, definately worth having,,, it's indispensible,,, that's awesome your family is so playbook ridden,,, inter-book vid chats must be a blast in your house...

By the way F2 do you need a Z10 case at all. It would seem that I had too much brandy the other evening and bought two instead of one which let's be honest could happen to anyone. (please no comments)

There's no such thing as too much brandy, is there (not a comment but a question!)?
In the same vein, too many cases, never. I do wish I could take you up on your gracious offer (you were offering it as a gift, no?) but I don't have a z10 and probably won't. The q10 might be out there at sometime but not for a while.

I had forgotten what this thread was about. Had to reread it to find out. I thought it was about Forest Gump shooting rocket s or death rays at someone. No I personally don't think that the PlayBook is dead and yes purchase a charging dock off CrackBerry or Amazon.

I bought a charging dock for my wife off ebay(like I said earlier). It is nice but the wife and I have our Playbooks in convertible cases with the mini-key board and the rapid chargers work the best for us. On a side note and hate to say, Forest had stock in some crappy fruit company.

Breakfast should always be a plain cob of corn placed on the hot griddle, brushed with butter (do not ever use heathen margarine or any other healthy stuff). Just before your ready pour brandy (cheap, nothing over $70) and flambe to perfection.
However sorry for going off thread again but which dock is best?
