What size would you like the next PlayBook to be?
Just thought I would pose this question. I love my 7inch PB. However with the introduction of BB10 on it's way and I hope it's awesomeness. A PlayBook with the new technology would be ideal. I'm thinking 9inch. So what do you guys think?Sent using my PlayBook or my 9930.

I,d love to see a new 7" with identical styling to the BB10 touch phone.
Better specs, lighter, slimmer. A new rebranded name and BB10 at $299. Marketed properly and relaunched, it would be an excellent partner to the phone with bridging.
Then perhaps a 10" later, unless the whole market has moved to the 7" form factor by then.

I love the 7" for many reasons, but I would like a 9" or 10" size as well as, not instead of. In my perfect world, we get both and with BB10 OS they two formats bridge together with each other as well as the phones.
Would be fun for some games and apps, and multitasking. Too much to ask for?Chapple13

My next PlayBook will be about 4" and run BB10
I would actually really like something about 13 inches; once you start getting bigger than 7, it's really not portable so you might as well go laptop size.Need an app for your blog/business or want some BB10 coding help? PM me for rates

What I really would like to see is a trackpad like on the phone to have an actual mouse pointer. My fingers are just too fat to click some links occasionally. I have used on several occasions my BB phone's mouse bridge feature for this purpose.

I've been playing a lot of games on it lately, and I still think the 7" form factor is really good. Maybe they could bump it up to 8 or 8.5, but for playing games, it's really a great size. It's also nice to be able to bring it out places and not look like a doofus, holding a huge tablet.Sean

After using various form factors I concluded that my perfect tablet should be 8 inch with slightly less bezel. And weight distribution as in Sony's Tablet S would be nice.
However, I need 8" only because my eyes are weaker now. 5 years ago I could be happy with 7 or even 6".Sharp PC-1600, Rolodex's Electrodex Plus, Sharp IQ7000, Sharp IQ7720, Sharp ZQ8200, Palm Vx, Palm Tungsten T, Palm T/X, HP Touchpad, BB9700, BBQ10+Playbook...(and number of Symbian/Android/iOS devices, neglected and forgotten).

The 7" size is perfect for portability. I put it in my purse and can take it everywhere. I think the biggest I would like the Playbook to be is between 8"-9" if they were to make it bigger...otherwise I might as well drag my laptop with me everywhere and that is not going to happen!Lovin' the Playbook and hatin' the cynics!

I like the present screen size and the heft of it, but ideally, shrink the bezel so the external size is a bit smaller.Using

Id like to see a blown up version of the PB now, in terms of design.
10" Super high res. screen 9" viewable w/bezel (2560x1600)
Thinner design, similar materials, loose a little weight(but not enough to loose the rugged/premium feel/build)
Tegra 4/S4 SoC powerplant
2GB of DDR2/3L
16/32/64gb flavors, add micro SD slot
wifi-n/bluetooh 4.0/NFC upgrade
Upgrade Dock connector to allow data transfer
upgrade camera(s) 8 or 10mp on back/ 2mp up front
add a couple more gesture options- swipe for vol. control, lock screen (maybe this will already be addressed in BB10)
It would def. sell at the same price points as a modern 10in tablet, however with the abilities the PB has now, and soon BB10 to drive it- Id buy it fast, and put things like a nexus 10 to shame. Hopefully apps will scale a little better at first, until they(Devs) can write the app(s) to scale upwards as well. Being its only a 9" viewable, the breakup in the app/picture would not appear as drastic. Thus keeping that more to that polished look the PB now has.
The 7" is perfect for on the go, just re-vamp that one as is!
This being the 10" will appeal to those at home on the couch, presentations, and overall easier viewing for doc. editing, database, spreadsheets, etc..
Just an idea of many!@
