    BlackBerry working to upgrade PlayBook tablet to BB10

    No dates, but just a recent confirmation from Thorsten Heins that they have 'teams' working on it. Sharing!

    In the 2nd paragraph they mention that it's in the process of changing the name. I would assume they still called it RIM because that is still the "legal" name of the company.

    If they are working on it you would think a beta wouldn't be too far off. **hope**

    This presumes we are dealing with the same old RIM. Although the turnaround has been slow, I definitely get the impression BB is starting to care about the consumer experience. While no major release occurs without some bugs, I suspect we will be getting a very usable product with a bug fix coming in short order after that. This approach will help the company rebuild goodwill squandered in the past by the old guard.

    I wonder how upgrading the Playbook to BB10 will affect the apps currently installed on the device? And would this mean, that, theoretically, apps from Playbook BB10 would be functional on the Z10 and vice-versa?

    Would be nice to have the Hub effect and native BBM. Can live without the rest of the BB10 functions.

    A good question, I am concerned about that too, there are a lot of apps that dont work on the z10 but they work on the playbook and viceversa, like instagram, netflix and the playbook emulators. I am afraid of losing some of my playbook apps when bb10 arrives to the playbook.

    It will all be answered: SOON, Just around the corner, within 60 days.........

    Or not!

    Actually, I thought this issue of "current" pb apps running under bb10 has been discussed. I'm not sure of the answer but I think it was a mixed bag - some would, some would not.....

    I just wish Blackberry would quickly release a Qt library update for PB. That would allow most developers to port their apps from Air to Qt and C++ while waiting for the full Qt/Cascades libraries in BB10 to arrive.

    BlackBerry is really working to upgrade the PlayBook to BB10! What else proof you want to see? A PlayBook running in BB10? That's too much!

    You guys are really hard to convince...

    I've seen a PlayBook running an alpha build of BB10, looks impressive.
