Yeh, million of Peer to Peer visitors just as us the maximum they can do is giving out advice.

None of RIM employees login to the forum here unless there is a serious issue with a BlackBerry product.

Actually I don't think we will get Arabic on PB before August as far as I know RIM stopped the production of their PlayBooks for a moment till they release their new Smartphones.

But I hope we get asap because I need it.

For the PIN don't thank me, it's the moderators who removed it when I reported, however I hope you don't post/share it in public again to prevent spam.

Re: Arabic Languge..!?

I don't know what is wrong with RIM,

I know Apple used to be careless about Arabic, not releasing it on iPads not even on iPad2

But I hope RIM is not the same, PB up till this moment doesn't provide with Auto-Word-Substitution or a Spell Check so adding Arabic language would be just a layout and simple integration with the browser to read arabic sites
That's it!

What's hard at that RIM! You did better and harder before!

Re: Arabic Languge..!?

well lets see ... i can read arabic on my playbook but not in all of the applications ... but i cant write in arabic, for example i can read a web page in arabic, but i cant read a bbm in arabic as it will be written backwards with letters far apart ...

 

why didnt RIM use BB OS on playbook instead of QNX Smiley Sad like seriously ... there is nothing wrong with BB OS, playbook has so much potential in it ... QNX ruined it all ... we cant find apps that work, the software has so many glitches that am using my playbook as a paper weight ...

Re: Arabic Languge..!?

@Austen,

Same, for example the Facebook native app, can't read Arabic at all.

In the Browser, no titles in Arabic could be shown, however some sites their content could be loaded normally.

Yes, Arabic BBMs are not readable

But I do think QNX is the future OS for everything, it's good, fast and lag free (up till now)
Also it will provide us soon with great apps and games (hoping that dream would come true)

I loved the QNX more than BB OS4.7, 5 and 6 so I am thinking about getting the BlackBerry QNX smartphone in 2012 (if it comes with a Physical Keyboard and Touch Screen as the Torch)
