    This post is one of the best I have seen on crackberry. To it I will add:

    1. PDF Reader - with search, annotations, bookmarks - it is ridiculous that Adobe has not delivered these essential features
    2. Netflix, HULU
    3. Medscape, Skyscape and other NATIVE medical applications - HUGE opportunity that RIM has deliberately ignored so far!

    1. Email
    2. BB phone control
    3. A2DP
    4. Android Apps
    5. Print-to-go

    As for number 5, I didn't originally see it's usefulness but have found myself needing such an app more recently!
    5. Print togo seems like a total waste of development resources - just email yourself the PDF...

    If you want android market, just get an android tab. Playbook's not going to have it. All android apps will be repackaged and sold through app world, and likely won't even mention that they are android apps.

    From a quote from RIM (Via n4BB)

    "Before submitting your Android application to BlackBerry App World, please make sure to remove all mention of the word “Android” from your application. Both in the application description and the application itself.
    Please remove all links to Android Market from within your application"

    Devs: Have Your Android Apps Ready for BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 by Feb 6th | N4BB - News for BlackBerry - forums, leaks, rumors, videos, faqs, reviews

    What am I anticipating most? Just coming to crackberry and not having a thousand speculative posts about OS2 and when its coming or what its gonna/should have

    While I may one of a few in this, the one thing I'm most waiting for is to see what new accessibility features will be added... Haven't seen any posts about it (too bad) from CES.
    After that, the Email, new Bridge functions, and well... everything!

    I am looking forward to the following features and hopefully these will be implemented as it would make my cool Playbook even more awesome and useful that it has been up to now (which I mainly use for web-browsing, watching videos, podcasts and news feeds, plus a bunch of games):

    1. Using my Torch 9810 for REMOTE CONTROL during presentation mode - I want to be able to do a presentation off the playbook without having to lug around my laptop, and advance through the slides with my phone. Now that would be awesome! Now I have to get a micro-HDMI cable.

    2. More ANDROID APPS that are only available on Playbook OS2 because the OS1 doesn't have an android player. I am assuming that once OS2 arrives, we will see the APP Store show a bunch of BAR-converted APK files that should be able to run over the Android Player. Right now these android BAR files don't run on OS1 and I assume that they also don't appear in my Playbook's App Store because it knows I am still on OS1. Does anyone know if the Appstore is being populated with ANDROID APPS that have been converted over for playing in the Android player?

    3. Using LOGMEIN to control my office PC and hope OS2 will bring us LEFT and RIGHT click functionality with either a bluetooth mouse, or with a Blackberry phone REMOTE CONTROL bridge. My hope is that I can buy a blue-tooth mouse and keyboard and actually use the Playbook with LOGMEIN or other services and be able to click properly. Currently I can log in to LOGMEIN but it is painful to use and impossible to do all of the right-click functions that access pop-up menus. I can't select and drag properly, it is horrible.

    4. Same goes for GOOGLE DOCS... I am looking forward to having better mouse pointer control on OS2. It would be nice to have a pointer on my screen to select items, and do fine-tuned layouts and controls like I can do on my laptop. Then I can create an entire Powerpoint presentation "IN THE CLOUD" and then save it down to my Playbook for presentation (which I have done before). However, it was really annoying using Google Docs on the Playbook without a mouse, clicking properly and selecting and dragging or resizing images was almost impossible without a cursor and having both left and right-click functionality like a laptop has. This is a shame, because otherwise all of the web-programming/java ran beautifully on the Playbook's browser!


    Not sure if this answers the question.... or whether it is more of a "wish-list" which I am hoping has been included in the Playbook OS2.

    I hope someone from RIM listening and already added it to OS2 or will be doing it!!!! That would really solve a lot of problems and make the Playbook a real laptop replacement killer!!!

    android market
    You might want to go the rooting route then.you will never see android market on a official os release. IF you want market on the Playbook you have to make your playbook have market yourself...I think alot of people are confused about this./When os2 drops there is not going to be access to every app in android market. You will however have Android apps ported over from the Market to the qnx platform.If the dev decided to port it to the playbook then it will be there and if the dev did not want to,then it wont.

    1 - If the tablet itself counts as a feature... then that. At the moment this PB gets knocked around the office as a $800 mp3 player. No one has any use for it.

    2 - Email, with spelling and contextual punctuation.

    3 - Email where I can save attachments.

    4 - Email where I can add an attachment without scrolling through 1000's of files because there is currently no file browser... just a here's 'all your files view'.

    5 - oh I give up. OS 'Too Point-less' will fix a single issue above, hopefully all of them.
