Not trying to call you out, just curious as to why if you have bridge capabilities that you would trade in your current PB for basically the same tablet with an increase of data speed(4G LTE model).Cell Phone History:Motorola Bag phone > Motorola Star Tac gen1 > Motorola Star Tac gen 2 > Motorola Razr > BlackBerry Pearl > Iphone gen1 > BlackBerry Curve > BlackBerry Torch > BlackBerry Torch II > BlackBerry Bold 9900 > BlackBerry Z10

I hear what your saying, and chances are I wont be selling either of my PlayBooks, I'll probably just get one and pass one of my others to a family member so I can actually get more use out of video chat. If I do end up selling one I would try selling it to one of my friends for the same reason, and hopefully my circle of friends will start realizing how good of a tablet they are. I admit I got a lot lil excited over the speculation(?) of Verizon getting 3G/4G PlayBooks finally. For the most part your absolutely right that there's not much of a difference, besides native BBM, which hopefully means BBM Groups, NFC, and a few other features. Even though Bridge is my favorite feature, and probably the best feature the PlayBook has, I'd still like a 4GLTE, especially for when I'm out & aboutSent From My BlackBerry Bold 9930

- BBM is useless to me. Now I can't delete it!
I hope this does not indicate (which it clearly seems to) that some apps for the PB will be carrier specifc? If so, it's not good.
Does this mean Skype is coming to the PB via Verizon and the rest of us suck dirt?
You would think RIM would learn not to limit its offering to one or two carriers.
The good news is I do not see an AT&T tab, yet.
When they do this it might bring a few new customers to the carrier, but overall it simply pisses off those not on that carrier. I am sure it does not please the carriers without their own tab as well.
Lift foot, aim and fire!
PS, they did a terrible job of adding the tab. The tab listing at the top now runs together and looks like a 8 year old coded it.

Quick update - now I see the Tab in App World ....had to sign out and cold reboot and then tap App World and it appeared......still loading at present so no idea what's available as yet. Can someone post what Apps are included in this tab?
Standing by patiently but with some aggravation pangs.....Michael ATL

WOW, will you look at that. A couple of months ago Verizon didn't want to have anything to do with the PlayBook. I wonder if they will start promoting BlackBerry devices again. Things that make you go hummmmm.

It was for the 4G PlayBook and never should have appeared for WiFi users. Unfortunately, it got cached in the system and ended up filtering out from there. Much like how Angry Birds Space turned up and then was subsequently removed once it was taken out of the cache.

The only reason I can determine that my personal PB sees the Verizon tab is that my personal PB is configured to use the same email that I use for my family's Verizon phone account. (my BB is a corporate device, so that doesn't factor in)
Shortly after posting the above msg, the Verizon tab vanished from my personal PB.... Oh well....
