    They don't need to give a specific drop dead date. It could be something like next month or in six months. Lots of companies keep customers informed of projects affecting their purchases. It shows the customers that the company cares about them. This is something this company has been sorely lacking - a good customer experience and good customer relations.

    Not sure if I'm "that" member, but I can repeat what we were told at Jam Americas, which is that there was zero chance it would be out even in beta form by launch, and that a beta would absolutely definitely be done and would arrive probably several months after launch. A first non-beta release would be several months after that.

    Next week is Jam Europe. Maybe we'll learn more then. Possibly an updated time-frame for the beta?

    I don't think it ever will, I don't see why RIM wouldn't have mentioned the PB would be getting the update at the launch event if it was coming.

    There is no more RIM. If you go to the BlackBerry Beta Zone and ask questions of the BB employee moderating the PlayBook forums. If nothing was coming, he may have let it be known that work was not currently underway. He is tight-lipped about specifics but gives the impression work is ongoing for BB10 on the BlackBerry. He is certainly eager for any input regarding features people might be looking for.

    The leaked timetable shows it coming out around Q2 so a March-April release date sounds fair.

    He says "We will provide BlackBerry 10 software updates for all of the PlayBooks that are out there."

    (This wasn't news, by the way. He said the same thing months ago. Some people just don't pay attention, or choose to forget.)
