    well, there i was expecting a bb10 playbook announcement on Jan30 and nothing , not even a date so we could at least have another countdown timer.
    im really torn now on wether to keep the PB or ditch it. i do like it but i think the samsung and ipad are just more fluid ....if the PB was just as fluid , then it would be fantastic which i what i was hoping the update would address.

    Exactly 2 quarters after RIM Blackberry's formally announced release date (when they annouce it). Just going by their track record.

    I took a scientific approach and threw three darts at a dartboard and came up with Jun 31, 2013.

    Seriously, I wonder if a re-designed playbook is in the offing as it seems like the Playbook is not being replenished on store shelves. I checked BestBuy/Futureshop, Visions, Staples, etc for it and could only find a couple in two The Source stores in my area. BestBuy and Staples don't even list the product anymore. A re-launch would not surprise me, especially as Thor keeps referring to BB10 as a "mobile computing platform". I saw an interview where Thor said BB was going to look at a product for the developing markets next and then focus on expanding their presence mobile computing. To me that means a lower-cost unit will come out for the developing markets (lower cost as they are more price sensitive), and then a revised Playbook will be issued. To stir the pot a bit more, I'd like to throw in the thought of the famed, but elusive "Aristo" device that is supposed to be super high-end - potential fall launch?? With all that on their plate (presuming that is a reasonable framework of what they're doing) when might they have time to tweak the Playbook OS for BB10?

    My guess is not long after the phones come out in the US. I don't see them letting the playbook user have it before a large market doesn't even have the phone yet. But probably not long after. Hey, love my playbook as it is, so when I get BB10, I get BB10.

    I would imagine current Playbooks will get the upgrade when the phones have created their buzz and interest. Otherwise we will most likely have to wait a bit. I would think they are also working on a new Playbook to showcase BB10 onto. Newer updated specs and such. Reasons for non bb users to buy a Playbook. Not much sales by just releasing to us existing users.

    lol let the phone marketing do its thing first. one step at a time. focus.

    My previous post was incorrect and I apologize, after consulting the scientific minds at scientology it already has been released.
