    I'm just curious. If the PlayBook got BlackBerry 10; would it run the existing PlayBook apps or BlackBerry 10 apps, or both?

    I just can't see developers re making their BB10 apps to fit the PB resolution so I'm guessing PlayBook apps only?

    Has there been any information regarding this?

    In early 2011, I listened to RIM Execs spouting off about their new tablet, it seemed to offer everything that I wanted, eg
    • smaller than an iPad (eg will fit in a large pocket - no need to lug around heavy kit - I have serious back problems, so this has always been very important to me)
    • seamless connectivity to my BlackBerry Bold (9xxx)
    • ability to access/edit MS Office documents
    • HDMI out to enable me to do Presentations (without having to take a heavy laptop with me)
    • HDMI out to enable me to watch my favourite movies in hotel rooms (I do consultancy work and therefore travel a lot)
    • doesn't require an extra SIM Card (& expensive contract) as will do the data connectivity stuff via my Bold
    • better security than an iPad, with government certificates to prove it (which means that the auditors will let me use it to access emails)
    • and SKYPE (really important for me, as I frequently use Skype for both work and personal stuff)


    Guess which one I am still waiting for? SKYPE!!

    I hope all my older PlayBook apps still run on OS10, but......
    for the PlayBook to actually do what I was originally led to believe it would do....
    and one of the key reasons I purchased the PlayBook in the first place (early adopter me!)....

    OS10 for PlayBook had better be able to run Skype

    Well I would like to think we would see all the apps that we are currently getting on the Z-10 and Q10 plus more as the app developers jump on board. I truly believe we will see all the popular apps like instagram,skype even netflix.

    I'm guessing most if not all the preloaded apps on bb10 will not be a part of the OS in order to save space, I believe these apps will be available on Blackberry World at the discretion of the user.

    Cascade apps, all current playbook apps should be accessable still ( there should be cascades versions offered but not required as per prefrence of the user) and I believe we will get the 4.2.2 android runtime, solely because when heins talked about tablets he mentioned value added services and taking away the android run time would be taking value away from the end user.

    I believe we will have a larger app cataloug than bb10 phone users given our playbook apps that will not run on bb10 phones.

    correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't bbui.js support z10/q10/pb screen sizes and resolutions ?


    are you happy you crazy baby cynic
