    Who let you in here?....come on...you make far too much sense to be posting here...You are obviously an intelligent person ( I can tell that from your post ( i can't really..I just infer that because i agree with you).....I read, all of it . unlike some (S_O_M))
    No I did read all of it and it appears although well masked in lots of words, it's still the same basic "please Mr Thor can we have bb10 on our pb please".

    "I have the right to know that. I could then make an informed decision on whether to cut MY losses. What I am saying is that the silence is no longer tolerable and that I am making my decision soon."

    Whoever told you that you have rights? Your decisions my friend are just like my decisions. They are mine and mine alone. I make them and I claim no rights from anyone else when I make those decisions. Like everyone else who assumed it would happen and then doesn't, they blame their decision on others. I bought my pb for what it was at the time, not for what I hoped it might be like in the future. Just count your blessings you don't have a Z10 or Q10 or you really would be pissed off! Big style!!!!!!!

    As a PlayBook owner I want bb10 on it, however, it is not a must have, I would be fine using the current OS. From a business point of view it would make more sense for BlackBerry to launch a new tablet with bb10. Its what everybody else does to make you purchase new hardware. I would purchase a new tablet if it was released, as would many PlayBook owners.
    I disagree even from a business stand point. They promised it on a tablet that ca me our half baked. I'm with you that it as fully functional and I as well have no complaints on how it works. My issue is that it's been promised by the new CEO so I expect it for him to anticipate my money to continue imt BlackBerry.

    You really don't like that Z10 do you. I will take your implied advise and stay with my 9900.

    This is the most important part of the statement and I think the single greatest problem for BlackBerry....Delivering on a promise ...Implied or otherwise.....Paraphrasing George Santayana: Those that forget the Past are Doomed to repeat it.

    Fear not it comes to us all in time. I prescribe one pasty at night and a glass of brandy every four hours until you feel better.

    Long time reader but first post. Am probably the only person on the planet who doesn't own or need a cell phone. I have owned a Playbook for a year and a half and love it but I just use it for email and surfing. Have enjoyed learning about BB phone and Playbook issues through the CB forums with thanks to all the knowledgeable posters. I bought the PB solely because it is Canadian. I hope BB10 comes to PB but would be happier to buy new PB tablet if that is in the pipeline after the new phones rescue the company. I hope either an upgrade or new tablet is available before current PB dies so I don't have to buy from the competition.

    Welcome weary traveller. I used to always use, no need a mobile phone and have been known to carry as many as 4 phones with me everywhere. Since I bought what you refer to as the new phones that will rescue the company, I have lost all interest in mobile phones. I am quite content with my pb and have no wish to have bb10 on it.

    The final straw for me is reading about all of the hidden functionality in the Android runtime. BB10 users are now exploiting native code support to run apps that barfed all over the PB's implementation. And yet we can't touch any of this, even though much of the required functionality is likely already present and dormant on our devices.

    To learn that the only thing keeping us from running Skype or Netflix is some switch in a code signing utility is absolutely infuriating!

    Hooray I'm not alone in realising that the pb has always had bb10 as it's OS!!!!! Yeah........... At last.

    Pssst don't tell anybody else cause they get really upset. By the way do you like brandy and pasties?

    I am Canadian....I bought it because it was cheap (not as cheap as now....but not full price).....and at the time it was fine. Its still fine....its a solid tablet....but i have moved on....

    .. we reminisce about the past, but realize that good things never last but somehow in someway we silently wish to hold on to the things we once had.

    Soon it will all be in the past....and we will laugh (some of us anyways) at the absurdity of RIM changing its name to BlackBerry and thinking that , like a bolt out of the blue, all would be right with the world, ('fanboys don't stop me...i'm on a roll), and we'll dump the 'founders' because that was the old Rim...the company that cannot make deadlines....that promise updates and fail to make targets....thats the old company...RIM...no the new company hmm lets call it Blackberry....and we'll get a new CEO....someone who is dynamic....forward looking...someone who is great at speeches....someone who can 'rally' the troops....Someone we can rely on to Keep the Ship heading in the right direction...........................What....he's not available?....ok....lets promote someone from within....eni, meni, mini, moe.....my mother and your mother where hanging out some clothes.....one potato two potato three potato......ok Thor ....its up to you.....Go know one out of the park.....

    I told you about farms before and trust me old macdonald was way way too clever to have anything to do with bb10. By the way the fish is very quiet at the moment!
