I´m an new BB User - justed switched from the iPhone. But at the moment, I´m not sure, if it was a good desicion. There are some apps I still miss (native Skype, owncloud Support) - and that´s the worst case:
The lack of VPNs which are supported. I konw, that pptp is ab bit ... outdated. But it´s still in use. And what about OpenVPN - the best VPN created? I´m sorry, but for a company which say´s that mobile connection is there main goal, I can´t understand that only IpSec VPNs are supported.
Hope you change this. All in all, the Z10 is really cool, but you shoud listen to your customers.
Greetings from Germany,
BTW: What about an update for the playbook?

I thought about the BB given "VPN Solution". It´s really nothing they offer - especially for business Users. The IpSec Solutions they offer, are product based IpSec VPNs for a special kind of Cisco and Juniper VPNs.
OpenVPN, SSL Based VPNs and PPTP are not avaiable. Terrible. I know, that PPTP isn´t a secure VPN, but it´s often used. And even Apple managed it, to get OpenVPN to iOS. The longer I think about it, I get the impression, that it wasn´t a good descission to switch to BB. Lack of support for standard applications, no OS 10 for the playbook. The onliest thing, which is really impressing is the usability / gestures.
Greeting from someone who is really disappointed.
