hi all,

I've just got my new playbook which launched in the uk today. The podcast app is not installed, any idea how to get it?

Re: podcast

I have a dev playbook, have done for a while with the podcasts app.
Yesterday I noticed that I can no longer download podcast episodes.

Is anyone else having this issue? If not, have they suddenly disabled it for UK users?

Re: podcast

I did have the podcast app on my playbook when i unpacked it and used it for the first few times, but since updating the software to version1.0.7.2670 the app has now dissapered altogether.  I thinks it's because these devices are manufactured in the USA and the app that come with playbook must have been preinstalled at the factory.


Since the playbook has been shipped to the uk, the app is not available to uk playbook users.  That's my theory and I could be wrong.


I've also noticed that the update had wiped the demo video from my playbook.  Smiley Sad(
