Arabic Keyboard: iPad2 or PlayBook

I almost through my iPad2
away when I bought the PlayBook,, Since I
am a blackberry user… But thank Gad I did not. I use the tablet to write Notes,
Tasks, Appointments, Twitting and messaging in both English and Arabic language…
it makes no since not to include the Arabic Keyboard until now, or at least RIM
should announce when are we getting the Arabic Keyboard

----- So, Arab shouldn't  buy the
PlayBook, not yet ----

*iPad and Android has Arabic Keyboard, while Playbook…. Not yet.

*iPad and Android has Emails, FacBook and Twitter.. and others, while
Playbook has uncompleted BBM!!?

*iPad and Android has Video Calling and Skaype, while Playbook will not
get Skaype.

*iPad and Android Sync with your Mac and PC, while Playbook Sync with
your BBPhone.

Day by day I feel sorry for buying the Playbook

Re: Arabic Keyboard: iPad2 or PlayBook

me either , day by day , and think not to sell it but crush it Smiley Tongue

by the way blackberry users are complaning day by day

some complane about language and some of them are complaining about the the gadget or the tablet while apple users are happy and satisfied .


and you know that UK , US , and CA are not complaning and they have thing that it's not avaliable to us (the greatest customers)

by the way RIM why did you sell playbook in middleeast ?! if you want to sell something in a region search for what they want it would be better than making people unsatisfied and regret for buying something they don't get use of it

and the last thing i want to write is : when apple start selling there product in our country specialy in kuwait they know what we want but when i saw playbook and use the internet it was fantastic but why didn't i use it more

no emails , no IM apps , and no HD beautiful famous games

what are you doing rim ?!

Re: Arabic Keyboard: iPad2 or PlayBook

I went today to buy Playbook as I was very excited about it  but when seller told me that it does not support Arabic , this was dealbreaker to me and I felt like RIM does not respect us Arabian users as they sell this in our  Arab countries without support our language even when they released new OS update ,no arabic support was add to it

Re: Arabic Keyboard: iPad2 or PlayBook

it took them 12 months to get autocomplete to work for english...My guess would be that you get your arabic language support in 2015?!!

Had we all got OS10 updates you might have got arabic but we understand no further playbook OS development is planned so we can now confidently predict you will never get arabic on playbook, well 99.9% certain.
