    Just curious, is bb 10 or 10.1 suppose to come to our PlayBooks? If it's just 10, am I correct on thinking Skype won't be available? I don't know much about this stuff, but I always see forums mentioning 10 not 10.1

    We have no idea.
    One would think it woulld be the most current OS of the day, so if it came out now it would be 10.1.

    BB10 is the umbrella. When people say OS 10, they don't necessarily mean 10.0.

    My preference is OS 2.2.x rather than fight the bugs likely to be in BB10.x. Just fix the bloody sorting, add email filters and as far as I'm concerned, as long as it gets me to the internet via Q,X,Y,Z phones I don't care. If the powers that be (being charitable here) take away that part of the bridge, I have no need for a new RimBerry phone.

    Just my never humble opinion.

    What makes you think 2.2 would be bug free? I've been thru 1 to where we are today. None are bug free. But then again no platform is just some are better than others.

    Good one More seriously, I guess it will be at least 10.3 since they didn't announce anything for 10.2 And they would not create another special version of BB10 for PlayBook. Looks like they have to cleanup the mess they did with QNX in first version(s) of BB10 and then finally release update BB10.x that will also support PlayBook

    I think it will be 10.5, 4 phones 1 tablet. 4+1=5. Obviously they will bring phones out before the PB update.

    depends on the phone. If Q5 as low prices as they can go, then you're right. If they plan cheaper phone, they have to slim down the OS first to allow 1 GB or RAM, and that's the moment they can test it on PlayBook

    As have I and if you think that after two years of 1-2.1 of bug killing in OS 2.1 is bad, just you wait. That may have been from a song in my dark memory recesses...just you wait 'Enery 'Iggins, just you wait...

    I again submit, RIMBerry is not a software house. They are a hardware house with little or no system integration expertise, unlike SPAR who do a marvelous job of both.

    OK, outa here.

    We should just call it BlackBerry Tablet OS 3.0 this way it isn't limited to just the PlayBook and they could use it on other devices moving forward. But he'll, that's just my two cents
