Re: How to install BB10 to your BlackBerry PlayBook
Not sure if this was already answered....
Anyone know if the built-in File Manager app has been updated to give access (like our BB phones) to full directory structure listings and showing all possible file types? I hope BB10's File Manager is like our existing Blackberry phone File Manager, and not like the really poor Playbook File Manager (which is also used in the Browser, Messaging apps as well when you try to find a file to attach or upload).
The problem is, all of the programs use the same File Manager interface which basically scans the whole playbook and lumps everything into 4 categories: Pictures/Videos/Music/Documents (sorted alphabetically). If a file has an unrecognized extension, it doesn't show up. So good luck trying to attach it to an email and sending it.
Also, there is a problem when some email attachments UNZIP... they do not let you delete them after! Because the Playbook creates the unzipped directory and files (which may be unknown types/extensions) with it's own app user-permissions... and then doesn't give you access after to delete your files (which it can't show because of unknown type). You can't delete them in another 3rd party app because permission was set by the Playbook's own built-in app and the file "belongs" to it, not the 3rd party app.
If RIM updates the File Manager to give you options to delete and access folder structures like on our BB phones, then hopefully it can be used to delete files that don't belong, or let you attach/upload/download wherever you want and whatever file type extensions you need. Without that functionality, BB10 will FAIL in a big way for people "who do".... Business people who need to be able to organize, upload, download and manage email attachments and files OF ANY EXTENSION on the go.
