    Speculations run amok about BBs intent on tablets for the future.

    Obviously, the original PB will not be upgraded and eventually my 3 PBs will run its course over time.
    I wont re-hash the pros and cons about the PB and the Nexus 7, but mine pros and cons are essentially the same many of those posted here on CB.

    I have a 16GB Nexus 7 (2012) and just bought the newer 2013 32GB Nexus.

    One of the features I will miss is the PB Gestures (ie swipe to switch apps, etc.). Has anyone found an Android App that best mimics some of the PBs gestures.

    "Switchr" is one I use to do App Switching. Another is call "All-in-One Gestures" which I set up to mimic the PBs Android Run-time player Back gesture.

    Another pro I will miss on the PB, is the Origami Browser app. No longer supported by the developer but still the best PB browser and app in my opinion. Again, gestures is one the features that made the Origami my favorite. Is there a clean, fluid, smooth, and reliable browser in the Android world with gestures. I have tried some but the interface is not fast as the stock Chrome browser.

    Any other apps that you would recommend that harkens back to some of the PB goodness?

    I haven't used it extensively, but Dolphin browser has a gesture-based system.

    Games so many... but Apps, I don't think so... my PlayBook now is literally for gaming purposes only... I just purchased premium games and they are still great... web browsing is also becoming boring in PlayBook - specially if you have other options... even connected to LTE Internet connection, it is still behind with others...
