    As a new blackberry playbook and crackberry forum user can anyone tell me whether it is possible to sync existing contacts from Outlook or my Z10 to my playbook?

    You will use BBRY Link software on your PC. It supports BB10 and PB:

    As a long time fan of blackberry I am being left with little option other than getting more and more frustrated by the day - apart from issues around synching contacts and calendar entries I have today been trying to download basic apps such as drop box and linkedin only to find, yet again they are not available for the playbook and yet they are available in android and other formats!

    When will blacberry please catch up and offer a basic core crossover facility between devices and allow them to speak to each othrr from the start opposed to several software upgrades later!

    The PB is limited in apps, a known fact. Don't be frustrated and use the PB for its strengths, swyping OS, web-browsing, and multimedia. There is no law that you can only have one tablet. There is no perfect tablet so supplement with a android tablet if you need the apps. You can get dropbox access with PB app Files and Folders. Have you tried the LinkedIn website on native or Origami browsers?

    You might try Desktop Manager to see if that is better with the PB. I just keep synced via gmail. We were all disappointed that the PB didn't get BB10 but we have learned to deal with it.
