    Does anyone know if there is a timeline/ETA for a native Twitter application from RIM for the playbook such as that found on the BB's.

    I'm guessing not because I haven't seen anything, yet.


    (Yes, I know about blaq, but not interested)

    Thanks

    I don't think we'll see one. On the list of things that a web browser does but an app does better, Twitter is all the way at the bottom behind things like email and Skype.

    The alternative is that a 3rd party developer could make something high quality like FlipBoard, but there simply aren't enough PlayBooks in customer hands to justify spending that kind of time yet.

    I agree with most all of your points. I'm hopeful that RIM will release one eventually though.

    Blaq is not even as good as Twitter for BB by RIM (which in my opinion is not as good as UberSocial for BB). I really hope they make a Twitter app soon. Desperately need one.
