    Hey all, I recently learned that playbook is off of the market now. Does it mean I wouldn't get any software updates? I have seen any up dates on angry birds. Its been a long time and Im still waiting to get angry birds star wars on playbook. In fact I think there is no new game on PB. So, that's it?? no more updates?

    It's been said numerous times that the PlayBook will get a software update to BlackBerry 10.

    It depends on the app but I've gotten two updates to apps in the last 3 days. And new apps are still being created.

    I don't recall the date of the Last OS upgrade. We have been led to believe that the PB will get BB10 by the end of the year. So it is a slow waiting game.

    looking at my playbook now and waiting for that bb10 (which wont come because blackberry are very good at failing) is like having a 8520 curve

    Cool bro.


    Anyways, BlackBerry thinks it would be better for the company if they allocate more resources to the BB10 Phones, as they are still the ones being sold. They have to be able to fund their research and development.

    BlackBerry wants to do well just as we want to see them do well.

    it was only an oblique reference to BB10, so maybe it only added a week not a month?

    It's only been 3 months since the last PB update, the longest time span between updates has been 6 months. So we're still on course and well within the comfort zone before we start to panic.

    I don't think Blackberry has ever officially pulled the Playbook from the market.
    Whatever you heard was just a rumour.
    Even after a product is pulled from the market they are normally supported for a period of time.
    I get software updates fairly often.

    So, only 7 months to go if it's coming. It's almost exciting.

    We're nearly at the point where the BB definition of "soon" agrees with normal English usage.

    I guess BBRY's problem with releasing BB10 for the PB is when to do it. If they leave it much later it'll interfere with launches of the lower end keyboard phones and nearer the end of 2013 will interfere with the launch effort of their new 'premium' phone.

    They should have just released it at the end of January and got it out there. Then they would have had a yardstick to measure further tablet development by instead of just guessing what further tablet policy to persue.

    Of course it's easy to say this from the sidelines as we obviously have no real world tablet experience that is so clearly abundant at BBRY's head office

    The release of BB10 for the Playbook isn't going to interfere with anything else released from Blackberry.
    Playbook has a very small customer base. Most Playbook owners don't even know about the possible release of BB10. It's only us forum members and geeks that think it's an important event.
    9 people in my office own 12 Playbooks. I am the only person that knows about BB10. That accounts for 2 of the 12 Playbooks. I haven't told the others about it.

    Please don't, we have enough disappointed people in this forum that were driven to eating and drinking. Let those people enjoy their tablets as they are. Expectation is what kill the joy of what we have on our hands.
