Why Doesn't Rim Get Up to Speed? so many applications - Not available to BlackBerry Users???

I am so tired of looking at applications that i might want to only find out later Blackberry does not support that app - most recently when trying to access an application through VPN...  

 

BB Playbook does not run OVPN software so is not compatible with most VPNs.  

 

It is useless for anything other than going on-line and checking emails.  Would never buy again and feel I just wasted money buying this one.   

 

Thanks Rim!   You have another very dissatisfied customer!

in this instance it is expat TV and as stated in my Email apparently BB Playbook does not support a OVPN - like every IPAD and every Android seems to.  This is not the first application that BB does not support, just the most recent.  Sadly, by the time this product gets up to speed it will have lost it's loyal client base - due to inconveniences such as the above.  The BB Playbook has disappointed me many times

indeed currently the PlayBook can do dozens of VPN but not Open VPN. I ma not sure if Android and the iOS can be connected to the ones the PlayBook can.

But indeed that does not solve your issue.


What are your other sources of disappointment?
