I am interested on how well bb10 will performance on playbook. It is old hardware, however I do agree that I doubt it would be a complete rewrite. My fear it will lag. Realistically I just want a fast browser that won't crash on me (which current playbook crashes quite a bit), good magazine integration and a solid ms word and PDF reader.

The original BB10 software on the Dev Alpha was pretty much the Playbook OS with the Cascades libraries added. Same basic weaknesses as PBOS, including ~3 minute boot time, poor-performing browser, and just generally buggy and slow (btw, not complaining--beta device and all, issues to be expected).
RIM has updated the Dev Alpha software a couple of times now. It still isn't feature-complete, but it's way closer to what we'll see on release, and I can tell you it's a considerable improvement. Animations/transitions are very smooth. New browser is EXCELLENT. Boot time has dropped to ~1 minute (and some have suggested it will drop further). BB10 is a much more finished/polished OS and considerable optimization work has already taken place. Since I saw this on hardware roughly comparable to the original Playbook, I have no problems saying that the PB should actually see much-improved performance with a BB10 update.

My main gripes with the iOS music app are:
1. Can't add songs to playlist while listening to the song. You have to back all the way out to the playlist section and then search for the song again just to add the song. This is especially annoying for someone who can't read Chinese but likes listening to Chinese music. It might take me a few tries before I even pick the intended song to add to the playlist.
2. Ability to skip songs using the volume rocker buttons. iOS users will say I'm being picky since I can just click the button on the headphones to skip songs. But if you do a lot of walking or public commuting (crowded trains and buses) like me you'll know that having to take your hand out of your pockets just to skip a song is annoying. Since I'm usually holding my phone while it's in my pocket I find it far easier to just skip songs without needing to look or take my hand out. I'm really surprised this isn't a more common feature for other phones. I know it's not there for the Nokia 920 either.
What I do like about the iOS music app is being about to turn on music with the headphone though. The BB way requires the app to be running first and then the corner button allows to you play/pause, but I find that the button gets press inadvertently way too often while in my pants pocket and it ends up draining the battery (I've learned to just lower the volume all the way when at work to avoid playing music via the speakers). I don't care about a music store selection so music catalog is not important to me.
Way too long of a reply... oh well. My 2 cents.

In the UK retailers are selling the PlayBook as a loss leader and are knocking them out for between £100-£150, that tells me they're trying to sell them and when they run out of stock they won't bother ordering more stock.
RIM have already said that they won't be releasing BB10 for a good few months, my guess it will be out in q2-q3 between April and July.

It would be cool if RIM showed up at CES and just give a small peak / demo of BB10 running on a Playbook.
There are so many new tablets coming out this year with better specs and all, running Android and Win8.
Would be a nice *poke* from RIMM to show the world once again they too, still have an amazing tablet, that will even get better with BB10 on it!
It would also show/give developers an additional platform to develop / release apps for; meaning a bigger chance of more profit on your apps and thus more justification to actually release something for BB10.

Additionally, one would assume that the same cpu clocked an additional 50% would need a significant increase in cooling so at the very least I'd guess that the LTE has a more efficient heatsink.
