    Genuinely, where else do you see this happen in the tech world? BlackBerry should be honoured.
    Whether you don't want blackberry to do anything with the PlayBook or you do ultimately we all appear to be on the same side. Blackberries! Both sides have different opinions but want the company to do well.

    I don't see that happening to many brands especially when they're not doing so well.

    So true, that's the difference in this Petition, we want BlackBerry to succeed, we have come together, with different opinions, as one voice.

    Please continue to spread the word...and get the signatures coming in looks like we will break through the 400 barrier sometime soon. It's not just the signatures it's the comments, they tell a story of how we use the PlayBook in our daily lives.

    I could have sworn that the UK and the USA spoke a similar language, but now I'm not so sure...
    Defo not, I'm a Scotsman who prob speaks less clear spoken English than you but I can spell correctly :P The English language as we know it didn't die on Independence day...you just think it has, but the rest of the world is not in denial !

    we want BlackBerry to succeed
    That's basically the main problem, "we want BlackBerry to succeed". As a poor Playbook owner (never owned or wanted to own a smartphone of any brand) I felt extremely let down by the company you "want to succeed". They should provide decent service, keep promises to their user base or don't make them, etc.. My prediction: their star might rise again, once they stop treating users like they did...

    Exactly! Would like CrackBerry to run a feature on this petition, they quickly ran one on the thread from the PlayBook asking what Tablet will you get now the PlayBook Is DEAD...we need Pro PlayBook stories like the petition and Pro BlackBerry devices representing the PlayBook community voice!

    I see you've been tweeting with mister Saunders. My own proactive days (see the "Action Thread") are now well behind me, but officially I am still waiting for a response to the proposal I sent him back then (not that I can't guess what that response would have been, but still...).

    Don't know why blackberry shut the post down. Surely you're providing important customer feedback foc in your time and expense!
    Blackberry should be proud of your devotion, as a goodwill gesture Chen should prove his commitment to the company by only using a PlayBook and BB10 device to conduct his business. I'm sure we'd see some updates then

    Ah hem...American English is not a language, its a regional dialect

    Thats coming from a Scots English speaker, but I still spell proper and despise the English government, if ye ken whit ey mean like

    Love my fellow crackberriers more than my south midlands and southern west poms... they behave like BB executives with their attitude towards consumers, not all - granted - but most

    A while back there was this rumor (or was it in an actual interview, I can't recall) that Blackberry was seriously exploring the possibility to remove itself from the consumer market altogether. As the company never seemed very well-equiped to actually deal with end-users this didn't actually sound like such a bad idea. Asking mister Chen for a goodwill gesture like you propose wouldn't quite fit into the general company indifference, I'm afraid...

    And BTW, I think mister Heins got all the remaining Playbooks as part of the settlement (he loved tablets, as we all know...)

    Surely they violated us by removing support first - in a week HeartBleed proves hardware users need OS updates for a hardware life expectancy of say 6 years.

    Unfortunately we do not have that kind of law or regulation on this side of the pond. That's why we do not build anything to last.

    PMSL...

    Sale of Goods Act UK states it must be fit for purpose for approx upto 6 years, its questionable if the refusal to update security as a essential for 6 years could be forced on Blackberry in a court that the device fufils its requirements under the SOG Act...but its certainly plausible same as EU Directive for Consumer protection that a BB CEO induced sales of Playbook lying about BB10 OS upgrade.

    Blackberry Europe trades from the UK head office in Slough.


    All it takes is a small claims court, preferable in Scotland as this sets a precedence in UK law at a Sheriffs Court up north where small claims courts are administered.
