    Here's a thought. BlackBerry has a kernel of a community. Why not have a free form product around this. Even 1/10 baked and people would jump aboard

    You got it 9/10 right with the playbook so carry on....?

    I always thought ducks could fly but just for you, when the contract in the heathen country is over I will come to wherever you are and teach you to fly (foc). I will pm you later and find out whether you want fixed wing or egg beater!

    Thanks paul, I love monty python by the way!
    Hey, you want to visit the exact diagonally opposite corner of Heathenville and do some hiking?

    Haven't tried it as a ping pong paddle yet.

    Sorry I have to rant a little (and this being a general purpose thread of sort & I wouldn't dare to open yet another pointless thread about BB10, let's try it here): Why do the people seriously hurt (and to a certain extent understandably so) by the whole "no BB10" decision, think that those of us (you know who I am talking about), who do not react as if they're utterly and completely devastated by the news, therefore don't care, don't understand the issue and/or are "idiots"?
    No prizes for the correct answer BTW...

    As a ping pong paddle the PB definitively is better suited than the Z10 you are apparently currently using.
    The ITTF might disapprove, however (too big?)

    It's simple and your options are:

    1. Fixed wing?
    2. Egg beater?

    You choose?

    I'm not sure about others, if Thor said playbook is not updatable with BB10, I believe him. Before the talk about BB10, there was talk about playbook OS update, the reason they delay it because of BB10 will give one major update instead of incremental update on the original OS. Now Thor is actively discussing what to do with playbook? It's all about communication. It's all about not stringing your customers along for nothing. When BB slashed the playbook price the second time, it's okay to inform the customers it's a clear out inventory, the tablet will no longer be supported. At least customers know what they are getting into. How the management conduct itself in the public is very important to the image of the company and the product. Clear communication and clear signal, not yes, no, maybe and I don't know or silent treatment. How the management handle playbook is going to translate to how investors, current and potential customers view how it will handle BB10 devices. Trust is everything in any form of relationship. To form that trust communication is the foundation.

    You must however have noticed "some" think slightly differently about this matter.
    These forums seem to split along the "I hate Blackberry" versus "all the others" lines. And that seems somewhat bizarre IMHO.

    In actual fact I'm readying myself for my trip to the heathen country. You know trying to fit in? It's a hopeless cause I know but there you go?

    Excellent point. They stopped any enhancement of the existing OS because it would have been a waste of resources since they were moving ALL PB's to the new BB10 platform. Now, 12 months later, they are not moving the pb to any new platform or even improving or fixing the bugs in the existing platform. A total FAIL.

    At least they could have changed the checkerboard color in an enhancement!

    They did not screw up the Bridge. You're British - this was a sacrifice not unlike blowing up the fully working, fully constructed "Bridge over the River Kwai" - it had to be done - so that they can sell the A10. You know, the ba$stard offspring of a cross between a z10 and pb.

    A10 is coming with 2GB RAM

    Don't expect BB10.3 for A10 due to hardware limitation as it'd need 3GB RAM
    Don't worry
    BB will be more than happy to sell you A11 with a new battery door and extra RAM for $600 at Christmas 2013
