    The playbook can be paired to a bluetooth keyboard, and connected to a large tv. It actually works great. It also can be ran using my z30. I have 4 playbooks since day 1. They all work, and the batteries are still strong. Adding Blend to the PB will be a great mobile feature.

    I don't considere the PlayBook as an obsolete tablet, in fact, most people these days are buying tablet with less hardware than the PlayBook.

    The "obsolete" condition is cause BlackBerry is focused on other things and doesn't want to invest on developing a lighter version of BB10 for it, just imagine if the announce a surprisingly update!?

    Anyway, the hole idea behind the PlayBook was to have a dumb tablet just to get the phone content on bigger screens...

    I use my PB every day is my main deck vice for browsing paying bills, my streamer for movies and all Internet related. My 2 net books has become unusable due to lag and slowness. So now mainly are used to install BB leaks and printing. (BB10 is behind on printer APPs)

    I don't know why people feel the need to post 'wow are people still using their PlayBooks' type of posts. What business is it of yours?

    Yes, it's obsolete, yes there are lots of new ones out there. Personally, I don't yet feel the pressing need to replace it. I have a 6 year old TV and a 10 year old microwave I don't see the pressing need to replace either. I don't feel a desperate desire to go on the OS7 device threads and sneer at those who use them either by the way. So why here?

    For those that still use their PlayBooks this will be useful. End of.

    Sensitive much?

    It was an honest question because I was pretty curious who still uses his PlayBook and to what degree, that he would consider Blend to be huge. In my world,the PlayBook is as dead as a product could be.
    And since this is a worldwide community, I thought that I just might ask what is on my mind.

    There was exactly no other reason, so don't get this defensive please.
    No harm was intended, there is no agenda and a question can sometimes only be a question.

    Not sensitive at all, you can do what you like. But since you don't do the same on a 9900 thread or question when it comes up, I find it puzzling that you do here. Seems pretty pointless to me.

    I sadly won't be using this on my PlayBook. The reasons I want Blend is big screen (for my laptop and desktop) and typing with a keyboard which is faster and more accurate

    I got an OEM Bluetooth Mini Keyboard for that very reason. I can use it as a tablet or a mini laptop.

    I don't do the same with a 9900, because half of my posts are from discussions about BBOS vs BB10

    One might say, I've already done this, so I just don't care about that theme anymore.
    People use their 9900 and proclaim that it is the best device in history.

    I stay away from those discussions nowadays, because it's just not good for my blood pressure.

    The BBOS crowd is also rather vocal, so you will know, that they still use it.
    The same doesn't apply to the PlayBook though.

    And since this was off-topic, I'll go load some 10.3 on my Z10 and I'll enjoy my vacation!
    Have fun Banco!

    Well no not exactly. One is permanently connected to my Denon receiver, which controls the surround sound and all HDMI feeds into the 66" Panasonic plasma TV. So it is like having a peripheral device. However, using my z30, I control it from my lazy boy. It makes any tv a smarter tv. Music videos shake the house! The others are all on the go. Travel, work, family members etc.

    Hopefully someone with a BB10 phone (if I could find one in my area) will now want to buy my two dust covered playbooks, if this "coming soon" update ever sees the light of day.

    You might want to keep the batteries charged up if you plan on selling them.

    Yep they are kept charged as backups for music streaming by the pool to the Bose Soundlink. About all I use them for now. My andy tab and HTC phone have taken over the heavy lifting.

    So BlackBerry doesn't sell many phones and most owners already have a tablet so what are the odds of any BB10 owner buying a dumb tablet that is unlikely to be much cheaper than a real tablet? Not enough to warrant the engineering cost. The tethered tablet acting as a larger screen for your small screen like a bridge is a failed idea.

    You know that the Playbook isn't COMPLETELY dead, right?

    Any apps that are submitted to BB World are evaluated for the Playbook as well. Any that are compatible are offered there as well.

    Also, I have no authority to go by here other than my own speculation, but it's not completely out of the question that there might be some kind of minor OS update for the Playbook prior to Blend's release. It might need one to be able to run Blend...

    At the very least, I think it's at least decent that BlackBerry is making the effort to keep the Playbook compatible with BB10 devices.

    As soon as Blend was announced I was looking for ways to get it on my PB. Bit with Blend needing Runtime 4.4 even if someone converted the APK to a BAR it wouldn't run. We need the Runtime then the PlayBook Will rise from the grave MUAWHAHA
