    My friend told me as of now they aren't updating the playbook. They are working on their new line of phones. So if anything it will be when things are all released and settled down but for now nothing is coming for pb. Sad but it's the reality of things.

    At the rate BBRY works, that could be another 6-12 mos. Who's going to wait for that? They just need to say "no"and tell the truth. It is really inhumane to give false hope like that...

    I've been looking for something to be my home base. Or my main device for everything. Right now I have a Q10 but I need something bigger. I tried android tablet and didn't enjoy them. Had the nexus 7. And I had an ipad but it's a little to restricting. All I got left to try is the playbook and a windows 8 tablet. I know playbook is not getting o's 10 but it still like nice. Tell me your review? I'm getting either a 32 or 64 gb models.

    Battery life is great! Glad for all day, even after lots of surfing, and a full length 1080p movie watching on the PlayBook, or using hdmi to watch on large tv. It has to original "Hub" for ya. I love presentation mode! Can share to the PlayBook from the phone. The music player is outstanding! You can "Map" the drive and transfer almost any file OTA. Using the bridge, you can maintain a good Internet connection anywhere your phone has service. I love this tablet, and show it off whenever possible.

    Hi Dave, what browser did you buy? I have a 32g PlayBook and love it, had it for almost 2 years now, but having a faster browser would be great. Thanks!

    Is it too late? No. I just bought a 64gb model with a leather case, screen protectors original packaging and 3 unused styluses for cheap locally. Depending on what you want out of it is is still a functional device. Now my 16GB can just stay on 10.0.9.388

    Summary: If the current PB does what you want, if it has all of the app you want or need, if the price seems fair - YES.

    If you expect changes and improvements of the current model - NO.

    If you expect a new version - well, you are delusional. First it will not be a Playbook but something else and the price will not be competitive with the current fire sale prices. Or the Tablet with be dumb.

    Dave thanks for the input on the fast browser I just purchased it and I can't believe the difference in speed. No checker board. Just made my PlayBook that much more user friendly!! Thanks again!

    I sold mine ( 32 gig version ) for 115 $ on kijiji today. For God's sake, Blackberry gave up on it. Why are you even considering getting one ? I strongly suggest not to buy one.

    I thought it wasn't much different except for flash and java disabled with quick toggle switches for them.

    Did you tell the same thing to the office who bought it from you?
    LOL.

    I just bought a 64GB model for $130 MINT condition! It also came with the OEM keyboard/case!!! I lucked out big time! Will likely put my 32GB for sale soon as I don't need two. Just couldn't pass up the deal.
