BB10 on 16GB Playbook

So I've been reading a lot of speculation about BB10 coming to the Playbook, however, I was wondering whether the discontinued 16GB model will also have the privilege of running BB10?

Re: BB10 on 16GB Playbook

Memory size shouldn't matter. 16GB, 32GB, 64GB all are the same hardware wise besides memory.

Re: BB10 on 16GB Playbook

I've heard that the 16GB has been discontinued so I am curious as to whether it will support the updates

Re: BB10 on 16GB Playbook

When the BB OS 10 update is released for the PlayBook, it will be available for 16, 32 and 64 GB versions (Wi-Fi and cellular).

 

By the way, read this from Thorsten Heins on a new PlayBook and the OS update for the existing one: http://tabtimes.com/news/ittech-os-playbookblackberry/2013/02/07/blackberry-ceo-thorsten-heins-i-ve-...

Re: BB10 on 16GB Playbook

Whereas all Playbooks will be given the BB10 upgrade there is still some doubt if the 1GHz processor will run it very well. Z10 has 2GHz processor.

 

We are also being treated like children waiting for Christmas "Wait and see...."  -  and at this rate it probably it will be Christmas.

Re: BB10 on 16GB Playbook

Be careful what you wish for. Can you imagine what the first 6 months of bugs will be like?

And what about de-bricking? Anyone tried it on BB Link?  Unless you have successfully linked PB to BB Link at least once I don't see how you can "reload" as it is now called without the device already in the program's memory. Connecting to BB Link with a bricked unknown Playbook seems to do nothing.  Will we need to keep Desktop on the computer just for debricking?

 

And looking at the problems on the Z10 forums we know what to expect. 

 

I might risk the wife's Playbook on BB10, probably two versions on.

Love the Christmas qoute :smileyhappy:

 

I hope we get BB10 sooner rather than later. Teething problems I can deal with, being left in the dark wondering when BB10 will finally arrive for the PlayBook I can not. Come on BlackBerry!
