    Don't think the .99 movie sale is for Playbook, it's only for BB10, right?

    Does the PlayBook have easy access to android apps? I have a z10 and recently got a Barnes and Noble nook hd+ and was looking at the PlayBook. I side load my android apps to my phone and was just wondering if loading them onto the PlayBook was any easier with 10.2 coming out (or will PlayBook not get it?)

    The movie sale is for the Playbook as well. For the PlayBook, the movies are not in BlackBerry World, but in a separate video store app. If you are in a country with the Video store App available for you PlayBook, there will be some of these .99 movies available.

    Before the questions start, movies purchased on the OS10 phones will only Play on an OS10 phone with the same BlackBerry ID as the movie was purchased on. Movies purchased on the PlayBook only Play on the PlayBook. The movies will not play on other devices such as computers.

    Sorry if it wasn't clear. PB>Video Store app; BB10 >BBRY World app. Too bad BB10 didn't get to PB. Would have been much less confusion with ONE store. LOL. Also, most titles that are on sale are on sale at both places. You gotta search for them or check out this link where most 99 centers that were found are listed.

    PB needs to convert android .apk file to PB .bar installation file prior to sideloading. 10.2 will sideload .apk files directly so much easier. PB android player is android Gingerbread compatible. Latest BB10 version 10.2 is android Jelly Bean compatible. So more android apps will play on 10.2 than PB OS2.1. As mentioned, PB will not get BB10.

    Welcome. Haha. I can't believe if your husband is a "gadget head" that you don't have devices out the wazoo available to you. I think I am in that category and I have 2 PBs, 3 android tablets, 4 laptops, and numerous phones. While the PB could work out fine for you, if you like to shop and FB, the better selection of android apps would probably sway you to that platform. You might even consider the new 8" Windows 8.1 Pro tablets if flash is important to you. Flash is getting "hit or miss" on PB and android because it isn't updated anymore by Adobe. Just get the biggest storage you can if you watch alot of movies. There are no tablets with practical DVD capability and movies will have to be downloaded and stored locally.

    See what did I tell you! The grape is a knight of the odd shaped table and now wishes to be demoted? Ok grape you wish is my command...........

    I hereby revoke your knighthood of Sir Grape and from this time hence you will be a common Baron. You are no longer eligible to sit at the odd shaped table and must therefore eat with the commoners. You must also forfeit any rights to carry a blackberry device and must immediately purchase a kindle and a nokia phone.

    This decision is irreversible and is effective as of midnight on Tuesday 34th Octember 1844!

    If you want to be able to use voice recognition there may be third party apps to use with the PB. Certainly Android tablets particularly the Nexus series running the latest Android version called KitKat ( version 4.4) will have the most capability. There is the Nexus 7 either the 2012 or 2013 version which are 7" tablets. The 2013 version is much improved and is t be preferred but the earlier version can be had fairly cheaply. Watching movies and videos is certainly possible but the screens are small as with the PB. If you have a TV with an HDMI port you can use a Chromecast dongle ( $35) plugged. Into it and watch movies and You Tube on it. Google does not support flash but some browsers may. Google supports the Nexus devices with timely updates.

    BTW if you decide to on a Nexus 7 or any other tablet would advise checking Amazon, Staples and Best Buy among others for best prices and look really carefully at bundled deals.

    The only thing I bought was a case. But I saw somewhere on this site that many of the experts recommend a rapid charging stand. I bought a keyboard off Amazon but it only worked one day so that has been it for me.
