Re: Arabic Keyboard

Don't say like this Smiley Sad , I'm also waiting for a year . If they are not going to support Arabic keyboard I will sell it, and buy another device because all the tablets are supporting Arabic.

Re: Arabic Keyboard

I guess the cost of implementing it outweighs any increase in sales. They have a very small target market.

Re: Arabic Keyboard

Well I guess they would have had a bigger market share in Arabic support was there in the first place, Middle East market is very big and people are reluctant in buying this tablet simply because it has no Arabic support. The device is very good in terms of specs but unfortunately it will never move in the M/E without Arabic support. As for me I will be also looking to sell it if this issue wasn't resolved. 

Thanks.

Re: Arabic Keyboard

I think that the middle east is one of the place on earth where the PlayBook had great sales, so I am not sure that not having the Arabic keyboard is really that inconvenient. The PlayBook can display Arabic texts without problems.

That being said, I can almost guarantee you that Arabic support will not be available in the next 2 months. So if you wish to sell your device, do it fast.
