    The time is better spent improving BlackBerry 10 and releasing a tablet later on. The PlayBook hardware is obsolete at this point and a hassle to continue maintaining development support.

    Fine, but we are only asking for Security, Maintenance and Android Runtime update. Do you not think that's reasonable until a new Device comes along? Doesn't it make sense for a company to keep (what have been) loyal customers happy and stop them from walking away from the brand altogether?

    Agreed. All hardware must die sometime people. I rather see BlackBerry update BB10 to make it the ultimate mobile OS than waste time on a product that is not going to drive cash in.

    And I still use my PlayBook.

    Should get security updates and some maintenance updates because those are needed for institutional customers but probably forget about the rapidly changing Droid.
