    IF they do NOT upgrade our current BBPB's to BB10 software, I am sure there are going to be a lot of disgruntled people who will NOT buy a new BB10PB and will leave BB in the dust, me included.. I hope they will upgrade us old hangers on....

    Trust me, you'd be much better off with an Ipad. Don't wait until March, go get it now and then you can add it to your list of hardware in your signature line
    Oh i despise Ipad and apple, trust me that will never happen.

    Oh so your saying May is when we MAY see it on PB's Older or newer?

    Care to present any info that states this as for sure from Blackberry themselves?
    The info was given to me by my friend that works at BB (RIM). And yes, by the end of May, there will be an update to BlackBerry 10 os, except for you.... Mr Cranky pants!!!

    Lmao ok so umm can i speak to this person your friend so i can clarify your info?

    Well i may just call Blackberry up and ask em, but i bet i get same old answer, yes we will be upgrading PB's, ok which ones new ones or old ones? i bet they say all PB's, ok does this imply New PB production line or old ones?

    Hey blackberry why update older ones when you can make money on new ones?, well simple we hate making that much money.... LOL

    I sure hope they update the older PB's, but like any company in hardware market....... they may update, but some features won't be on it though ..... as only NEWER ones will have this or that feature....... forcing us to buy NEW PB's or tablets whatever they call them, Maybe Lenovo will buy em out or have a deal made and produce tablets for BB?

    And I can bet you, besides a higher processor, there won't be new features that can't be utilized by the old PlayBook. Now run along....

    Future tablets?
    We will continue in the tablet space but are looking for specific services (verticals) where we can provide a value proposition
    What does this mean? ie what are verticals?

    Then you should sell NOW --- because it won't be available in March.

    There are 2 much higher priority issues to deal with:

    (1) they have to finish the QWERTY version of the OS first (so they can launch the Q10).
    (2) they have to finish OS 10.1 --- which at an absolute minimum needs to bring landscape mode to BB10's calender app and map app (which are currently operating only in portrait mode). On a practical level, since the Playbook's main usage is in landscape mode and we don't have these apps operating in landscape mode on BB10 phones right now --- you get the picture of the timeline.

    A. Those jobs will take a small share of their pool of engineers. There should be plenty spare capacity
    B.How are these priorities defined exactly? Do you have a source, or is it just your opinion?

    We all know that the original Playbook was a bit of a disaster. There was nothing wrong with the hardware when released, it was the half arsed version of the OS and the lack of marketing that killed it. It took some massive price cuts to get it selling and Os2 to fix many of the problems.

    I would have thought that Blackberry would want to release BB10 on the original Playbook to please existing users. I know if Blackberry announced a new tablet tomorrow, I wouldn't be rushing out to buy it. I'd wait a long time just to see if it is actually going to be supported by the software companies. If that happened, then I'd consider purchasing a BB10 powered Playbook.

    Now, if Blackberry released BB10 for the existing Playbook, and it looked good, worked well and was supported in the apps dept. then as soon as a new BB10 powered tablet came I on the market, it would get my serious attention and I'd most likely be buying it.

    Also, by releasing BB10 on the existing Playbook, there is an existing tablet market there for new developers to tap in to. The more apps a developer sells, the more they'll want to develop for it and the more money Blackberry make from their cut of the sales.

    In my opinion, not that it's worth much, I think it would be stupid for Blackberry not to release BB10 on the original Playbook. Convert your original market over, let them fall in love with BB10 and then watch them buy new BB10 enabled tech when its released. It seems simple to me.

    Wow they have a lot of work to do then, so why launch BB10 now and not in march or may like specutation is now for a PB having BB10, basically get the OS stuff done first before ever stating a launch, don't go saying cause of the new phones, heck they could of waited till may to do all of this and have PB updated too at that time.

    The priority is pretty simple --- RIM only sold about 1.5 million Playbooks to-date. RIM can live without its tablet business. RIM cannot live without its smartphone business.
