Re: Has RIM discontinued production of all Playbooks?

I just give throw in my hat in this discussion. (I think it's the right expression :-))

 

I bought myself recently a BlackBerry Playbook 7" with 64 GB for 1 648 SEK. That is roughly 180 Euro or 244 US Dollars. I bought it online from a Swedish retailer called CDON.se. I have noticed that BlackBerry A) is not common in Sweden and B) has been even less common in the year that has passed (2012).

 

Also, I noticed that there is not many apps for my needs so I just have to write them myself. :-)

I hope that we see a large update come down the pipeline for the playbook. They still have not completed all the functionality they sought to a achieve.

You won't have many weeks to wait. It's called BB10.

Re: Has RIM discontinued production of all Playbooks?

Apparently the BlackBerry chief said in an interview after the unveiling of BB10 that BB10 will be made available for all PlayBooks – but there is no due date. I assume it is not a high priority. The good news is that it was also announced that Skype will be available for BB10 phones. Hence it is not unreasonable to believe that we will get is on our PlayBooks also.:Balloon:

 

However, BlackBerry must now focus on releasing the keyboard version of the phone and make sure app quality is excellent for the BB10 devices before doing anything on the PlayBook.

[ Edited ]

 Blackberry surely have enough staff left to do more than one project at once? OS developers surely have finished BB10 for phones so while the hardware and sales guys launch the Q10 the OS guys can look to us folk. No? Unless they are on bug firefighting.

 

At least when mom said wait til christmas, you knew when that was.

They also had to lay off 3,000 workers to save the company. The rest may be "fully spent" by now and deperately in need of some well earned time off.
