Two 'small' problems (Display, BB Message application)
i am really happy with my new Blackberry Playbook so fa - but i already stated that enough in other threads
So far i am currently facing two *problems* (don't know if i really should call them problems)
The native messenger app (where you can read your emails and so on) does not automatically refreshes / gets new messages from facebook. I always have to refresh the inbox manually to see new messages. When i am sending an facebook message using the messenger app i also have to refresh the inbox to see my message which i have send to an friend (that's really really strange) - is there maybe a 'fix' or workaround available for that?
When the screen of the playbook is whole black (for example a black image) i can see a 'light cone' in the lower right corner. Is this normal / okay / often or do i have to exchange my playbook? As said only visible when screen is whole black (not visible for example when screen is full green/red/blue). I will post a picture of it when i am back home.

I can answer number two. What you see is called "bleeding". It is caused by the placement of the backlights behind the screen. Most lcds will suffer bleeding, and its a normal behaviour. If you turn the brightness to a minimum you will notice the bleeding reduction. Try to find the sweet spot when its bright enough for you to see and not bright enough to have that effect on darker content.

And about issue 1, I get the messages automatically, but their timing sometimes is a bit off. It doesn't feel like push, it's a lot more like pooling.

Works fine and you get push notifications on new messages. I paid EUR 2,49 for the application.
I have an old Blackbarry Bold 9000 at home - can the Bold 9000 be used for "bridge"?

The 9000 can be updated to 5.0 so that's a positive.
AppWorld (I so want that name to change...) works over WiFi now, so you're probably all set... IF you make sure the 9000 can perform properly compared to more modern berries (128mb memory and 624mhz processor).
