    Didn't read through this thread. I just came out of a meeting with a BlackBerry rep, and I asked her about OS10 on PlayBook.

    Basically she said she doesn't know, there's been no time line communicated from upper management. She also said one problem is that OS10 requires 2 gigs of RAM. There seemed to be a good possibility that OS10 would arrive on the LTE PlayBooks, but that they were considering a light version of the OS for the rest of the 1 GB PlayBooks.

    The only salient different in terms of hardware and probable performance between the LTE version and the WiFi version, being the clock speed being 1.5 for the LTE as opposed to 1 for the WiFi. As you say, RAM amount is the same.

    A light version would be most acceptable for people. The things that people want to see is better native apps. The use of cascades will bring that.

    Okay, I'm tired of going through all the posts related to BB10 for PlayBooks.

    Its really sad to see how BlackBerry is handling its PB customers, I mean bought the device for 500 bucks with incomplete OS and without essentials apps like Email, Calendar, etc. We have been promised various times and at various stages, that BB10 will be released for all PlayBooks out there. Now, that they have launched couple of devices with BB10, why they are not addressing this huge issue for PB customers? Why they are ignoring our questions? I haven't read all the replies in the forums, but I want to know what Kevin has to say about this? He has access to the key people in the company and can't he get a more decent and satisfactory reply from them?

    If nothing works out and they are still not willing to shed more light on BB10 for PB, then lets go public about it. Write open letters to Thorsten Heins on your blogs, and start a petition on change.org or some other site. Lets get it seriously done and settle this issue once and for all. We have got other stuff to focus on as well.

    What do you say guys?

    I wasn't getting at anything. I just repeated what she said. It was the first i'd heard of a light version of BB10.

    RIM was smart to sale the lie that BB10 coming to all playbooks in desperation to sale as much as possible playbooks even at cheap price. I was one of them naive who got it in hope for BB10.
    Now BB....doesn't care.

    I think someone should go with this in public on the air.

    Ignorance from BBC is the worse....

    750 for me. So I definitely feel your pain. But at the same time, I love my (2nd) playbook and really couldn't live without it

    Buzznotes on what Kevin has said. The PB may not be able to run BB10 well so they may or may not bring a light version so PB users can at least have the base etc. to run BB10 apps but again who knows but the shadow.

    Heck, I got it because of the promise about email, calendar and basic things. Took forever to get just that.

    He apparently tried to say in the positive what he would focus on as opposed to saying in the negative what he was not going to do (see quote and link to article below). He would spend money on his future vision of BB 10 (and not on the past vision--ie tablets).


    "Weve talked about PlayBook numerous times now, the pure hardware play is not really making a lot of sense, now I have to think of BlackBerry 10 as a platform not just as a product."
    So going forward we will focus on that future view of tablet (whatever that constitutes) I want to focus on the future, and thats where Im going to spend our R&D money money on."

    BlackBerry PlayBook not getting BlackBerry 10 update? | T3

    So we understand that he's trying to direct people towards his new view--carrying around one mobile device which people will pay dollars for--and plug into whatever screens exist in their environment (a car, a desktop pc). And not carrying around 2 mobile devices--a phone and a tablet. He was not able to get sales for the Playbook at the price that would make him a good profit so it sounds like he is just going to make phones and then sell people the software to link the phones to other devices and other types of services (security, BBM, possibly advertising etc).
    That sounds like the whole "thin client" pipe dream all over again. It went over like a lead balloon last time. Then the engine was a PC server accessed by cheap no brain viewers. Now Thor has replaced the server with a phone. I call bs on this one.

    I agree how messed up this is. its said blackberry reads these forums, but there is no evidence that the playbook section gets a look. so many users and no news comes our way. for all we know we have seen all the updates that playbook will see and native bbm was never apart of it. just wish there was news every 3 months giving a status or things in development.
