    ..I have to apologize to my PlayBook!

    I haven't picked it up since I bought the Z10. I feel guilty about it. So many times that thing got me out of a bind with work or school while being paired with my old 9900. For those that had a BlackBerry combo before the Z10 do you find your use of it dwindling or lacking altogether?

    I still use my PB just as much but then I used /use it mostly for reading library books. I still pick it up to use the browser occasionally if I'm too lazy to boot up my laptop. But it's used daily for reading and I'd be lost without it.

    Nope still use it as much as ever. I do wish that I could get full Bridge functionality back though.

    I use my PB now even more for reading, for fun things like Ice Age Village, Zen Pipes before I was too obsessed with work, now that I can do all of this on the Z10... more time to play!!

    I'm hoping they continue development on the bridge. I figure once (if) the excitement wears off of the Z10 I'll go back to my PlayBook / BlackBerry phone combination. Or perhaps the Z10 will end up on the table for a while at that point, especially if bb10 comes to the PB.

    Add me to the list of PlayBook ignoring Z10 owners... I still use it to watch videos, but rarely use it for anything else. Z10 browser is so good, whereas my 9900 browser was so bad!

    +1 with the OP. I just can't put myZ10 down and can pretty much do everything on it so my use of my PB has unfortunately decreased. I still very much love it tho and can't wait to rock BB10 on it.

    Not me! I use my PlayBook a lot. It's not that I don't use my Z10, I just need the extra viewing screen for most browsing activities.

    I haven't even tested the bridged LTE with the PlayBook. Anyone see improved speed or the same (because of BT speed)?

    I guess I'm going to have to wipe off the dust and fire it up and see as I'll be doing some traveling soon and it will come in handy.

    Yes! ! agree. Don't use the playbook for general browsing, or simple things like to do or other lists, email and the likes. I have a Bluetooth keyboard with PB and use the PB a lot when I am working in programs or in cases when a larger screen for viewing would be great. I put the z10 along with a spare battery, charger and charging cord in a Otter box 300.I use the cradle out of the Z10 shipping box to house the Z10 . The playbook housed in the leather Bluetooth keyboard , I put in a padded insulated sandwich bag with the otter box housing the 10, on top of the PB and zip it shut. Makes a great convenient, non conspicuous package. Really a great, great complimentary combination.

    I still use it every day, mostly to listen to Slacker or watch Amazon Prime. I keep hoping Bridge gets updated to bring back Hub functionality.

    Had a playbook from before I got a Z10, never owned a BB phone before I got my Z10. Was really looking forward to full bridge functionality when I got my Z10. Unfortunately for me, bridge functionality is pretty crap with the Z10. Kinda of ****ty since my sister and mother use their playbooks with their BBs and get all their notifications and whatnot on it, even if they leave their phone in the other end of the house. As it stands I basically just use the playbook for web-browsing and occasionally for taking notes in lectures with a BT keyboard. Would use it more if I had the bridge functionalities of previous BB devices

    Me too I have a become a z10 addict. Ever since I got the z10 I haven't really used the playbook. First reason bridge functionality is horrible and second no BB10 update yet. I only use when my z10 us charging my z10 for browsing the Web. BlackBerry bring BB10 to playbook so that I can get the most out of my z10. That's why I bought it. Also BlackBerry world on playbook is absolutely lame. So much better on BlackBerry10. Fingers crossed for BlackBerry 10 on playbook and a good bridge.

    This was one of the first things I did after I got my phone up and running. I'm on Verizon and I've notice a significant increase in browser speed on the PlayBook when bridged with the Z10 compared to non-4G devices. I'm going to be cautious using my network to view media on my PlayBook to avoid raising my data usage.

    Posted via CB10 & loving it!

    My PlayBook is still a useful tool for me. I connect to desktops at work while away from the office. Used it today as a mater of fact with my Z10 acting as the mouse. I also connect to remote control systems too.
    I like reading newspapers and watching downloaded TV shows on it as well.

    It wouldn't surprise me to see Bridge get expanded in the near future. You have to figure that on BBOS, all the apps were different. They have to completely rewrite everything to handle the Hub, and the Remember app.

    I use my PlayBook almost every day, I have it more or less permanently hooked to my TV. With the help of my Z10, I control my PB to watch Amazon Prime Instant Video, and recently, the NHL Gamecenter site (worth the $50 subscription). Using the VPN is handy to watch restricted streams.

    The Flash player in the PB is a great bonus that no other tablet currently has.

    Last but not least, I use VideoChat, and still rent some series from the Video Store.

    Let's hope BB10 also supports the current video store. We don't want to lose our investment made with our purchases. And of course, also the apps!
