Re: OT: 2011 Predictions for BB Playbook

Do you have something specific in mind when you're talking about the last-minute surprise? Built-in digitizer would be coolSmiley Tongue

@zezke, do you mean an "analogue to digital converter" (or "analog" for our US friends)?  There is already one in there...

Re: OT: 2011 Predictions for BB Playbook

the playbook already has an arsenal of features. but as humans we'll always want more hah. but im a simple man - a faster processor or more ram will do just fine Smiley Wink

Re: OT: 2011 Predictions for BB Playbook

My predictions are that one or two people in this forum will be offered full time positions by RIM based on their application submissions. Apple did something similar after they first allowed applications to be submitted.

I also predict the playbook will take a fair amount of the market share in the professional arena due to the solid/secure nature of BB products. I see IT professionals loving the device.

Lastly, I predict at least one of my apps will be approved before launch of the device allowing me to receive a free device and pushing me to write many more applications. Smiley Happy

No, I meant more a digitizer as known in the likes of Wacom's tablets. It was just an example by the way.

It offers more than a capacitive touchscreen does. It can sense whether you're pressing soft or hard.
