First there is no dev beta, only a dev alpha, which suggests nowhere near ready.
Second, if it was any time soon the project would be on schedule and in final stage so a definite release date could be published. There is no marketing reason to delay now the phones are announced.
So will it really be Soon? I doubt it. Weeks and weeks to go.
Be positive. You will have longer life. The glass is half full. The PlayBook is not dead. Besides, my PlayBook already does what I need. There are a lot of complainers out there and you will not please all of them - ever.

I viewed Thorsten's statement on CNBC a couple of times. He was more hesitant on that question than any of the other. I believe we will get BB10 OS on our tablets. However when they eventually 'empty the pipeline", which they have been doing for the past several months, they will exit the tab market. The best case scenario is they release a newly designed tablet but I am very doubtful. If they choose the former route our Playbooks will have a future so long as the BB10 OS is compatible between the phones and the tablet.
