Personally I doubt we see a finished release next week. I think it's still in rough form, what other companies might call a developer preview. Either way, I'm really looking forward to some schedule that tells us when we will be able to put a real Cascades app on App World, so we can all plan our work around that date.

Hmm, didn't realize this thread was still alive!
Well, hate to say I told you so, but I just saw this little tweet exchange between Alec Saunders (head of developer relations at RIM) and somebody else (not me) talking about Cascades:
Pretty much confirms exactly what I said in my first post... but thanks anyways to the hateful posts saying I'm crazy because those always make my day a bit more colourful So there you go! Hope everyone's excited for May 1st and the future of BlackBerry!

- Theres always something thats delaying devs coming over, PBOS2.0, Cascades, the weather, something or the other. Alec saying people are waiting for Cascades before they flock over is wishful thinking at best.
- As for your complaint about 'hateful posts', dude, seriously, you got nearly 200 likes and a hundred odd thanks, for a very very vague post that used a lot of words to say just about nothing, and hype up a feature none of us have seen, a post that probably wasn't really worthy of another thread in itself and would have been locked down as redundant if it was anti-PlayBook or negative in any way.
If you got a couple of negative posts, suck it up, the majority of people that feel negative about the post are just trying to hold back and are shaking their heads. I know I amIntergalactic superhero... Powers stronger around a red sun...

An excellent read, looking forward to seeing where this takes us. Maybe then we won't be inundated with complaints regarding the perceived lack of apps.Ain't no rocket scientists in the fire hall

When I asked Adobe about the poor RIM Playbook PDF viewer Adobe sent me this message, so I guess we are stuck with the useless PDF APP viewer or maybe its going to be removed leaving us with nothing! Or does this mean something else?
"As the tablet market continues to evolve, we continue to evaluate how to best support the market and where to focus on our resources. Because of this, Adobe has decided to end its support of the RIM QNX Playbook devices in March 2012. This means the ability to create new applications for submission to the RIM store will no longer be possible in Adobe Viewer Builder as well as the ability to rebuild existing targets for new releases of Digital Publishing Suite. Any existing QNX targets will be removed from the manage view inside Viewer Builder".
So instead of improved business apps we get more angry bird apps which also means angry business users.

Hey @BackDaws you don't even know what BB10 will even be like when it gets released. Don't make so many negative assumptions, unless you work at RIM and are helping to develop/perfect the OS.

Um, I was about to buy the Playbook (again) at $140 at Best Buy (refurb), but have opted not to this time. See, I owned one for about a week, and returned it last October. This hardware is a lost cause right now. Blackberry is going to torpedo it until it dies. The company still doesn't seem to recognize that open source and consumer communities are driving the leading edge of
product demand. My buddy tells his buddy, cousins, parents, and coworkers about the cool stuff he can do with a gven device, and they all buy it.
Hey RIM, this is no longer a corporate america driven agenda. In fact, corporate america is having to flex for end user demands.
Open the platform, and let people get to work. That plus Cascade apps, and you will begin to recover all that amazing market share you so skillfully bled over the last 10 years.
I am disappoint.
