Big news. No Netflix or Skype!!!!!

Why have either of these not been implemented yet?
This beta tablet has been on the shelves for almost a year.
Where is android app support?
I can't even sell this thing.

Man bb is going to be hurting once the long term phone contracts are up.

What other tablets have Netflix and Skype? Besides the apple products?

Re: Big news. No Netflix or Skype!!!!!

I know there's an app names IM and IM+ which includes a skype link for your phone, you should be able to get it on playbook to, I hpe this can help.

You will find it straight from BB App World of through the link services in BB App World

Re: Big news. No Netflix or Skype!!!!!

about Skype, you should contact them. I know for a fact that they decided to release the Skype app for smartphones exclusively for "Verizon Wireless" and "Three" subscribers. This is not RIM's decision.

That being said, I am not preventing you to rant here, but it will not have as much impact as if you go rant on the Skype forums.

Re: Big news. No Netflix or Skype!!!!!

You are on a community forum. RIM employees do not monitor this forum (apart from moderators).

Do you seriously think RIM employees monitor anything. We can't even get tech support.

@azrin640
I do not wish to go into sarcastic discussions.

Your tech support :
- for your 9800 is exclusively through your carrier (Maxis)
- for your PlayBook is through the direct support (toll free for Puerto Rico) : http://us.blackberry.com/support/playbook-support/contact.jsp or the 90-day complimentary support.

That being said, this discussion is about Netflix and Skype, which are edited by third parties so RIM support has nothing to do with that.

Re: Big news. No Netflix or Skype!!!!!

BlackBerry needs to do something about this. Not everyone I know owns a playbook so I cannot video chat with them through my playbook. I always wanted the playbook and now its a disappointment that I cannot video chat with anyone. This should be done as a free upgrade for all current users. For now, I GUESS BACK TO THE LAPTOP!!!!!!!!!!! :/

Re: Big news. No Netflix or Skype!!!!!

there are several videochat available, that work with people that do not have a PlayBook. Reel Portal for example, or http://www.aol.com/av/ , or the Adobe solution too.
