    Well summer is only a couple of weeks away and still no app player and it looks like we will never see email on the Playbook. I can't say that I am surprised though given RIMs track record with the PB. When the app player leaked I thought that the real thing may not be far away, but then I started using the leaked version and it was so slow and buggy it seemed like it was way off the mark. I have a suscpicion that the execs over at Waterloo are just biding time so they can make their shareholders happy with a big take over paycheck. Hope I am wrong!!

    Yeah... This is going on too long. I would love to find out why the release is taking so much time. I look forward to your thoughts Kevin.

    android player has leaked already, so it's clearly approaching readiness. or are you referring to some other app player?

    With no disrespect intended towards Kevin, the only people that truly matter regarding what is going on with updates/software updates/upgrades/future direction of RIM/future direction of the Playbook, are those that work for RIM directly.

    Speculation, even if it is intelligent, well thought-out, contains glimpses of insider knowledge or whatever have you, is not official.

    And what is truly needed now, but has been sorely lacking from RIM, is official communication from RIM to its existing/future cliental regarding the Playbook.

    I agree. Where is all the stuff that was promised? I am so sick of the silence from RIM.

    As I mentioned in a different post at this point its highly unlikely we will see integrated email on the PlayBook. RIM is having a heck of a time trying to get BES to play nicely with QNX. This is just my personal opinion based on some of my experience.

    The Android App Player is still being tested. I think we might see that maybe late next month early October.

    No worries Kevin. Playbook updates have become #3 on the priority list for us Winnipeggers.

    #1 - Blue Bombers
    #2 - Return of the NHL and our Jets
    #3 - PlayBook update

    Where were those CB box seats located again?

    Omg not another thread like this - the only one that saved this one is Kevin's appearance....
    I have a feeling RIM just squelched updates completely because nothing would be good enough for the complainers...

    Well, they're going to have to get it working soon if they intend to release QNX phones any time next year Which is what they've kind of bet the bank on.

    Also, given that LTE Playbooks are already in testing, it can't be that far out. Once you have an LTE Playbook, you could reasonably expect to not need to carry your phone around with you for email, bbm, etc.

    But without this thread he might not have made an appearance so good things come to those who nag!

    And your nagging about what YOU consider irritating threads is not going to stop them. You like the rest of us can probably tell the contents of a thread by its title and this one was fairly obvious. So you can chose to be annoyed by reading it/them or just skip to one of the glowing reviews - actually that should cut down your reading quite a bit.
