    Hey all

    So I have my PB chillin, but i feel bad for the guy, gets a lot of bad rep, he's pretty slow to boot up... but I would like to use it for something other than evidence that I love blackberry.

    what do you use your PB for these days?
    are there any 3rd party app stores you can install? I find the default one to be a bit lack luster and really... ugly to be completely honest.
    Is it possible to downgrade and then jailbreak if I wanted to mess around with it?

    all the best

    No 3rd party app store.
    No newer Android Runtime
    No rooting of the Bootloader


    But if you look at the above search link you might have more luck with seeing what it can be used for.... it has been discussed a few times.

    I use it for the same things I bought it for: Consumption of information. A larger screen to read email on (with my attached Bluetooth Keyboard cover) and a web tool. I have the LTE version but I find that I more often just pair it to my Z30 or whatever else I've got in my pocket at the time.

    Nothing has changed for me - it does what it did when I first got it.

    Android support could be a little nicer and that would certainly be helpful (there are a couple of ported applications that I would use in tablet format - otherwise I use the Web versions of those sites).

    Email, Twitter, light web browsing (news, weather radar, etc.).

    Apollo (Pandora clone) is pretty neat. Nice to just let it play in the background while doing chores.

    Listening to on-device music.

    Watching on-device videos.

    Alarm clock (Antair Nightstand) as a "backup" alarm to my Z10.

    The YouTube app works OK too, but you can't browse subscriptions so it's only useful for doing searches or watching "trending" videos.

    Still fun and useful

    Cannot blames us after the abuse we took from BB, after dishing out several hundred dollars for this thing.

    I use mine for media only, that's all it's good for really. I do love the hardware though!

    Mostly as an ebook reader, with some Web browsing when I am away for work. Rarely do I use it for emails anymore or anything else.

    Careful! Z10 in action!

    Mine broadcasts to a big screen in the office using hdmi out, for reading emails, looking at architectural drawings and Street Invoice. I've used my playbook as a mobile laptop from day one.. still the ultimate tablet!

    I fill my 64GB PB up with movies and TV when I go camping. It's got a nice screen, loads of space and I wouldn't mind if it got damaged.

    Pretty much everything. Internet, movies, docs to go and BBWORLD still has some kick *** games on. Linked to my z30 I can access all the files there too.
