Blackberry Playbook update to BB10?

Hi everyone! :Flowers:

 

I'm terribly sorry if I´m posing a question that has already been answered elsewhere, but I just wanted to know if there is some kind of time schedule for updating Blackberry Playbooks to BB10. We heard the CEO stating that this update will roll out, but does anyone have any idea when will it happen, if it happens at all??

 

Kind regards,

 

Gabriela

Hey mgabeia,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

Thanks for the question.

 

BlackBerry 10 will be available for the BlackBerry PlayBook.  There is no timeframe when this will be pushed out, you will receive a notification on the BlackBerry PlayBook that an update is available.

 

Let me know if you have any more questions.

 

Cheers.

For some reason, there is a lot of secrecy surrounding the BB10 verson coming to the PlayBook.  The  most anyone has said at BB (marketing type) is "later this year".  TH has simply said that BB10 will be coming to the PlayBook. My guess is sometime this summer, but that is a guess like anyone else's.

 

BB is also very tight lipped about plans for a Beta release.  I suspect it will be only an internal Beta much like they are doing for their Z10 and Q10 devices.

There is no such thing as an internal beta. That's just a team test. They presumably wany us to find the bugs when we have no backout plan. Poor marketing.

Re: Blackberry Playbook update to BB10?

The major change that I can see will be the version number :-)

I hope there would be a developer release of BB10 for PlayBook, so that developers could make sure their PlayBook apps still continue to work.

@Jarviser said "There is no such thing as an internal beta."

 

Funny that. That is a term a BB employee used when talking to me. Semantics aside, BB has not released a Beta to anyone outside the company for the Z10 prior to releasing the latest update. I suspect the same is true for the BB10 coming to the PlayBook.
