    Default [Speculation] Older PB's Won't get BB10, A new PB will have it?

    I am willing to bet when Blackberry Ceo stated we will be upgrading PB to BB10 he mean't that a NEW pb will be out with BB10.

    I am willing to bet that older PB's will not have BB10 update...... why i say this is because all STORES are discontinuing the PB's...... DISCO = NO MORE coming, so = New PB = NEW PB with BB10.

    Why Upgrade older PB's when they can make money selling NEW PB's with BB10 on it.. ????????

    I'm sure that we will have a BlackBerry10 on our PlayBook very soon. You are wrong RIM have many reasons to give us the update as commitment to its true core base users

    From the Q/A:

    BlackBerry 10 for Playbook, future tablets?

    TH: We plan to upgrade all Playbooks to BB10

    TH: Future tablets? We will continue in the tablet space but are looking for specific services (verticals) where we can provide a value proposition

    I hope you are right, but if you think about it, your guess is as good as the OP's.

    If we stuck to facts and proper sources there would be far less threads and posts on this forum.

    There is an issue there with they plan to upgrade all PB's to BB10, this could very well mean all future PB's no where does it state Older PB's.

    If Hiens and the gang have said it over and over and you still don't believe it then why ask anyone here in the forum?

    Its not coming to PLAYBOOK you are right.

    That sounds like the Lenovo speculation is true. Any future tablets will be a collaboration with Blackberry providing software and services with the partner providing hardware.

    Could be good. I have a 10" Lenovo Ideapad K1 android tablet. The hardware is excellent but my Playbook is superior in every other way. I am devoted to it whereas the Lenovo and other itabs I've seen/used are always failing to do many simple things in comparison.

    Ok if everyone agrees with Heins meaning ALL PB's = Older Ones as well will be upgraded then i will wait till end of march which is torture really it is, they should of given a date as to when this will occur, not just say after the phone launches, if so that would mean at least end of march if not APRIL.

    So time will tell and for all those ppl who don't have a PB best to get one ASAP as they are DISCONTINUED in all stores.

    The playbook was a big flop and what almost costs RIM life... Do you really think their next gen tablet will be called.... Playbook?

    So when he said all PB would get the update, he was refering to THE playbook, as we currently know it... Trust me, you wouldn't even had 2.0 if the PB was that dead...

    Trust me, you'd be much better off with an Ipad. Don't wait until March, go get it now and then you can add it to your list of hardware in your signature line

    A new PB would not need an "update". It would have BB10 right out of the box. So "update" means my $600 PB I have had for almost 2 years will get it!

    Oh so your saying May is when we MAY see it on PB's Older or newer?

    Care to present any info that states this as for sure from Blackberry themselves?
