    Since getting my Z10, my only use for my Playbook is book reading. I would like to be able to use it's larger screen to emulate what is running on the Z10, and also control the Z10. Essentially, make my Playbook the screen for the Z10.

    Impossible, pb is 1024x600 z10 is 1280x768

    What would be great is that u could use the z10 as a gamepad for the pb

    [M]ake my Playbook the screen for the Z10.
    That would be a fine enhancement to what is now a poor substitute for the way Bridge used to work with pre-BB10 devices. More than remote-control (which I think, not having direct experience, the addled BB10/PlayBook bridge still does) but having a large screen (sitting on one's desk, perhaps?) while manipulating the phone.

    Maybe something that will come when/if PlayBook gets a BB10 upgrade? It would be sweet to be able to do that, and I have to think that this would be through the graphics structure that BB10 uses (if you've seen the other discussion about how the home screen, with active tiles, works).

    It's no wonder I drink????? But there comes a time when you cannot physically drink enough to deaden the pain when you hear the same thing said for the 89,000,563,885,000 time. RIM screws thing up and the stock reply is "it will be sorted on the next update" the current buzzword is "Maybe something that will come when/if PlayBook gets a BB10 upgrade?"

    It's no wonder that you drink...but it's only because you're a sad_old_man, not from anything I said.

    Actually the intent and import of my comment was due to its speculative nature, not to re-open an old, and pointless thread. I really like the OP's idea.

    I think this is a good idea, playbook is getting less support and BB10 is marching forward... it sure would be interesting for emulators that run on the z10 to have the playbook displaying the screen.
