    As long as both the flowers and mountains stay - go for it. NSA would probably like them furriners gone.

    With the recent news that BB will not bring BB10 to the PB or any indication of an OS update for it, will you ever purchase an item with the Blackberry name on it?

    Early adopters only please. We paid full price ($599 and higher) for the PB thus out much more hard earned cash then those that paid $150.00 for one.
    Like you my BlackBerry Brother I was taken by the RIM roller coaster of how could this company could not fail and full retail price for a PlayBook was an OKAY thing to do. Since then RIMBERRY management has reached a new high of how to take a great company and throw it away. There was a time when I was a fanboy and stood up for RIM. That went from frustration to hated for this company in a few years. I use to care about what was said about RIM in forums like this but no more. I say whatever I feel about RIM or whatever they want to call themselves these days. This company will be sold in parts before it's done.
    RIP RIM

    There will not be another Playbook version 2

    Playbook 1 was only built so one can bridge it to the BB OS 6.0 to 7,1 and to help BB to survive until BB OS10 and BB 10 phones were ready

    with Z+Q 10 out, there is no reason to use a PB, all the function are on the OS 10 phone now
    therefore the limited OS10 bridge to the PB
    in 12 month no-one will remember there was a bridge function

    forget it, its over
    Yep on a dink *** screen.

    I was an early adopter. Bought a 32gb full price over an iPad.

    With that said I'll buy a bbry device anytime.

    I probably need to amend my reply above and include the US Postal Service. Apparently, it just came out that they have been photographing each and every letter mailed in the USA - the land of the free and the home of the monitored.

    Extended warranty on cracked screen gives me my $199.00 dollars back (pre 2.0 Office Depot). I used my PB everyday for browsing and email. Grand kids have about 6 games and when my sis was in the hospital, I used AOL for video chat. ..now what? I sent my PB back this morning. Monday I missed a 64meg with quick charger buy for $110 on Craigslist. I do own an iPad 4 but no way taking IT fishing, to work, on the road etc. Who else offerers this quality with this kind of rear camera, that I can share videos and pictures on a 52 inch flatscreen for under $200.00 bucks? Honestly, I may consider a 64 on Amazon for 170 bucks

    I bought a 32 gig Jokebook on day 1. I still think it's criminal how they bungled this device.

    The BB10 phones live somewhere between underwhelming and failure. I won't buy another BlackBerry product until they can prove that they aren't liars and they can release a market ready device. I hope to see more stories of z10s being sent back from phone companies. I desperately wanted the z10 to be a world beater, having 2 phones to replace. Instead you get a hit and miss experience, incomplete app selection and a premium priced device that will no doubt be obsolete as fast as the last 5 innovative handsets these dunderheads have produced.

    So businesses should operate by lying to consumers at a product's launch to make it attractive, keep lying to push it out of the warehouse, and then quietly kill it when sales don't go as planned? That's what BBRY did with the PlayBook.

    Nokia killed Symbian development in 2011 when it was only selling Symbian smartphones, before switching to Windows Phone. The CEO stated that support would continue until 2016 although, by 2013, most Symbian developers at Nokia and Accenture had been transferred to other duties or laid off. Even then, system and core app updates continue to be rolled out on an "abandoned" platform that is almost three years old by now. Third party developers are still coding for Symbian and its abandoned sister Meego.

    So what the hell is BBRY doing? The Facebook icon issue, 30-day email limit, broken IMAP support, an ancient Android runtime that hogs resources and is buggy as hell... all swept under the rug. All this was supposed to be fixed with BB10 for PB but that's gone, and so is all hope of having these issues fixed.

    BBRY released a product that was barely fit for purpose Oh yeah, to make you even more angry, there's a new Android 4.2 runtime available for leaked 10.2 devices.

    Unsure at this time and not all due to the pb. Seems their execution sucks and the phones are still having the same issues they released with. They certainly don't seem to have changed much at all.
    Yes.

    TH wanted to make bb10 available for the playbook but if it was going to run like crap then what's the point.

    Mmmmmmmm 1 and 1 is 2, 2 and 2 is eighteen! It's easy, can you not count?

    1161.80 will always. Be a bigger percentage than 6435.96! Did you not know that? Simple bb mathematical solution really!

    Where are the pictures from by the way because they don't represent the numbers?

    If I'm reading the links in your signature correctly you are profiting from BlackBerry doing good, correct?
    EG: filearchivehaven | @kerm_ed BlackBerry World - FileArchiveHaven

    Well if I profited from the sale of BlackBery products or was selling apps on I'd buy another and would be encouraging others to do so as well!


    (At least you're honest about profiting from BB doing good, unlike the hordes of SHILLS and FanBoys here that have a vested financial interest.)

    May the poll should be restricted to:

    A: To those that purchased the devices with their OWN money.
    B: Those that are not connected to RIM/BlackBerry in ANY way shape or form. (This means if you have STOCK, you're out.)
    C: Vendors and or Developers who PROFIT in any way shape or form from BlackBerry doing good.
    D: Suppliers, resellers... basically ANYONE that profits from BlackBerry in any way shape or form.

    Not doing so is a conflict of interest bigtime

    Base on your restriction, you won't even get a 100 votes which render the poll meaningless. For what it's worth, I'm a small time investor on BB and I voted no more BB for me. Because I believe BB cannot afford to alienate any more customers if they want to see the company survive through this hard time. If they do not rectify this situation, no matter how much I want their devices to sell, it's not going to happen with the bad mouthing start to spread. This time Samsung doesn't even need to spend a dime. Pizz off customers will do the work alone. I took a chance of investing in a company I thought has such great potential to witness such bad PR management. It's like you encounter a well dress good looking guy and thought the best of him until he open his mouth and speak. Oh well, my loss.
