    Default Will we have BBM Tuesday?

    RIM promised us BBM in 2 weeks after release, that is Tuesday. Will this happen, will it not?

    No one outside of RIM knows for sure, obviously. My heart says yes, but unfortunately my brain says no. I have a feeling it will be delayed - but if it is, only by a few days.

    I'm pretty sure RIM said two weeks for BBM, but stated 60 days for native email.

    I don't think it will happen so easily. You can't trust RIM

    I hope it comes on Tuesday but knowing RIM, the only thing that will come on tuesday is a statement that says "just wait, we promise that something good will be released sometime in the future". I hope that I am completely wrong on this.

    I think they'll announce Tuesday that BBM will available at a sooner date. I'm more
    than sure that BBM will be on the PB somewhere during the first 10 days of May.

    I'm going to say 'no'. People will be disappointed but only for a short while till they announce the 9900. Then all will be forgotten. At least for a week or so.

    Default BlackBerry Messenger 6.0 (6.0.0.73)

    BlackBerry Messenger 6.0 (6.0.0.73) came out in Beta Zone the other day, and it does not work on Bridge yet. They have a survey that's due to be done by the 5th. This taken to into account, there will not be another version released to the public in time for the deadline. The best they can do it turn out another version of Bridge that reads the BBM. I personally do not see it.

    I would love if we got BBM on tuesday, but I just have a funny feeling it's not going to happen.

    This is RIM we're talking about. We were also suppose to have the PlayBook by end of Q1.

    I certainly hope so, but wouldn't be terribly surprised if it didn't come to us until late May. Does anyone know when the Android apps are supposed to be available?

    Jim B did say 2 weeks at launch, but like many others I don't really believe it. I would like to see it arrive within the next 2 weeks along with an update that addresses some of the bugs in the 1710 OS release. So we'll have to take a wait and see approach.

    im guessing you posted this message on your playbook while watching the hockey game, just like me!

    1-0 canucks


    on topic:

    i really hope RIM uses their upcoming event to announce some major new things in regards to the playbook. This device is awesome, but just needs to mature a little bit (expected) and get some new features that really should have been there from the start.

    i.e. any bad spelling in this post should have been auto corrected by my playboo!

    I have been a loyal BlackBerry user for several years, but I am sad to say I have lost all faith in RIM.

    My PlayBook is going back on Monday (bought it on launch day with 14 day return window), and it will truly be a sad day for me. But I truly believe RIM has let all of its loyal customers down, and that they really do not have our interest at heart. They are not even coming out with anything official regarding all the shortcomings of the PlayBook.

    Unfortunately "it is coming soon" does not cut it for me, and after so many years, it may be time for me to try something new.

    Not trying to step on anyones toes, just saying how I, a loyal BlackBerry user am feeling.

    In all seriousness, why is everyone so jazzed about BBM? Frankly, I have always uninstalled it off my BBerries. I have SMS and email. What is the big deal about it? Thanks.

    I personally dont even think bbm will ever come. Why would it? This is a wifi only device so you would only get bbm updates when connected not like if it had a 3g or 4g radio in it which is always connected. I say never for bbm.
    Love My Playbook!!

    obviously you are in the critical position of deciding whats best for you. i empathize with your disappointment. cant say that the current PB gaps are sufficient for me to return it. i'm enjoying it as a mobile media and browsing device. the form factor is just right.
