    I believe there are politics towards the Playbook...I still can't print using hp eprint directly. I want to install the directv app but I can't because I don't have an android or a ipad...there are many apps I can't use because I don't have an android or ipad...why????

    Why the politics?????

    WebOS fans ask the same question,, It's not politics, it's sales - there are maybe 1.5 million playbooks out there* - that is 1.5 days of android activations.


    * last time I checked, let's double it and say it is 3 million - 3 days of android activations.

    Try: "Print" by Daniel Bigham

    It's in app world. I've been using it for a while now and it works well....

    You DL the app from app world then DL the pc utility. The document prints over your wifi network. Works everytime.

    Has it not occurred to you that the OS for your phone is night and day different for your tablet and as a result of this fact the developer of the app you want was unable or unwilling to rewrite it for what is essentially a different platform? Combine that with the fact that your Playbook has had anemic, and I am being charitable, sales and the incentive to do so is reduced even further.

    So OS 10 will level that playing field across the entire OS 10 Blackberry cohort? (Well, that's what I'm thinking)

    It should. One platform and instead of a kajillion screen sizes (resolutions) there will be just two (2)

    Everything people are saying goes back to politics...RIM is a good company with good products but the CEO needs to get off his button and promote his product...tell the world how wonderful it is...I'm just saying
