I think the lack of Bridge and USB sync is annoying a lot of people.
Regarding the Bridge, the Playbook has not received an update since last July - ever hopeful in a release soon, or when BB10 hits the Playbook we will see these functions restored when the Playbook "learns" how to interact with the Hub and Reminders.

For Email, Contacts, Calendar and SMS I use my Torch rather than connecting to that same Torch and trying to read them on the Playbook.

The thing that really really worries me is this is not a simple new model release by, let's be technical correct, BlackBerry, it's their last ditched attempt at success or failure!
After all that has passed before, I really did expect more from BlackBerry than a plastic copy of the iPhone. I'm sure the corporate brigade will love to be seen with this thing, or perhaps not!

The SIM card is a nonexistent issue. If you want to stay in your technology bubble, have fun with really old phones...

If I don't respond to you, it probably means that I am tired of the thread. Please PM me if you need to ask me something, vent, whine, respond to a post, ect.

By the way do you like pate? It's just that I'm planning a party and I wondered would pate be liked.
Don't get excited, your not invited, I just thought I'd ask.
I love this forum!

Honestly, no I probably would not use the Playbook for email even with the modifications.
My Blackberry email is just work related. My responses are usually short, ie: Yes, No, Bite me.
Not a fan of pâté and wouldn't come to your party if you did invite me.
I would crash the party though. What's the address?Z30, Nexus 4, Kobo Arc 64GB, Playbook 16GB

The USB OTG (On The Go) they're talking about is what allows you to plug a flash drive or similar device into the PB and transfer or launch files. That's the short answer anyway.
Pass the Bourbon brother S.O.M. I'm ready to "unwind".

I've got to believe we are going to get at least what we had when BB10 is released for the Playbook.
I am a programmer, not for the Playbook yet, and I know how difficult it can be to write backward compatible software and still be ready for future enhancements.
If that is the case it would be smart for BB to just say so. I sometimes get the feeling that they think their customers are too dumb to understand.
I know what USB OTG is. I wonder if we'll ever see that on the Playbook?
The USB loss in this case was syncing through the Desktop app.Z30, Nexus 4, Kobo Arc 64GB, Playbook 16GB

and the OP point is what?? you are disappointed with the BB10 or Crackberry... you tell quite the sad tale but with no reasons to back it up..... not all devices are meant for everyone... as for advertizing... if you had even bothered to do any research at all... you would have discovered the main advertizing starts after the actual launch in each country... do not see Apple promoting any product they produce till they start to sell them.... I do believe Apple is a modearately succesful company promorting this way......so again what is the source of your disappointment???? Oddly I for one have no desire to run out and buy a first generation phone and OS.... been down that road too many times.... will wait 3 to 6 months... see where the land lies and make a discission then... too old for the bleeding edge..... lastly... why to users have this overwhelming need to share their disapointment??? if the phone does not work simply take it back and find something that does....
