    Now I'm sure she didn't mean that, even though hers is only a 1st-gen iPad; and I know she loves her new iPhone 5s. But I thought it was pretty funny.
    And it renewed a personal hope that BB hasn't completely abandoned tablets forever, because obviously people could like them if given the chance.

    Cute.

    I've always thought the playbook was far superior to ipads myself, save for the apps it doesn't have. But that's hardly it's fault. If there was a bb10 tablet today with the android app capabilities of 10.2.1.. it would have nowhere to go but up. But I don't think such a thing will be a reality anytime soon.

    Then again.. with Foxconn building devices now.. maybe they have grand designs on a new tablet.. who knows what 2014 will bring.

    LOL. I would consider a new BB10 playbook but since there is no such thing I ordered a win8 tablet. But the pb is still good for some things even though it won't see any more updates.

    I've never used an iPad and can only imagine a first gen one is getting pretty long in the tooth.

    Stories like this bother me, because it clearly shows that people can appreciate the great product BB10 is when they give it a chance.

    My sister in law was over the other night, and she is ProApple everything all the way. She wanted to browse something on line, so I threw her my playbook. After using it for a few minutes, she is like....... "this thing is pretty neat"

    Bear, don't show her the "Gap" Solitaire on the PB. You'll never get it back. LoL

    Hopefully I can hang on to my playbooks long enough for Blackberry to come out with a BB10 playbook. Finger cross.

    The best on the PB was the bridge to the BB phones 7,1
    It saved us a bundle as we had a BT data connection through the BB phone
    and the native mail connection, BES , Exchange when it was finally out was great
    Obviously all App and OS2,1, development has stopped since a year now
    I still think the OS 2,1 is superior to Android and IOS

    I still carry my PB 64gb with my old PB phone 9780 with me every day, gym, meetings, appointments, its just an extension to my BB phone
    with internet 24/7 not needing to look for a WiFi hotspot

    But I do have a Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 64gb with Windows 8.1 for real work with me as well, as I need all my files with me, and it has an 10 inch screen

    But all my pictures, music, movies are on my workhorse the PB

    I've tried all kinds of tablets. I always come back to the BlackBerry PlayBook.

    Always.

    Heck, on almost all the Android tablets I had, if you wanted to attach numerous photos at once, to an email, you had to attach them one by one. Ridiculous.
    On the PlayBook....tap all pictures in one shot, and presto. Attached. The way it should be. Not tap every single photo, one by one.

    PlayBook supports flash content, as well as Java, which Apple STILL Cannot do, nor can Android.

    PlayBook is STILL a professional grade tablet.
