Thorsten, let me down, and therefore I have lost my trust in BlackBerry. No longer worth believing in these people say this was a good brand and let it be. : (
I am willing to participate in a class action.

I have two Playbooks and I cannot believe this news. At the very least Blackberry needs to turn over all specs to the Android community and let volunteers create the OS from now on, so we can start using the tablet as tablets are meant to be used. If Blackberry needs to cut their losses, FINE, but at least provide us with a way to get functionality out of Playbooks!
I NEED SKYPE and after investing in 2 Blackberry Playbooks, I don't have more money to waste on other tablets, like Samsung, etc.

This is unfortunate.
I guess we now know the real reason Netflix hasn't released a BB10 app - they know people want screens bigger than phones to watch TV on, but with no BB10 on the PlayBook BlackBerry has little to offer Netflix.
I feel bad for the early adopters who paid full price for their PlayBooks (me included) and those late adopters who sucked them all up when the price fell believing they would eventually get BB10.
I also feel bad for the developers who put effort into the platform thinking the PlayBook would get BB10.
At the very least the PlayBook should be updated to run Cascades and other BB10 apps.

After buying so many Playbook (for myself, my brother, my spouse - just a few months ago, and countless friends that I convinces to buy one) I not buying a single BlackBerry product anymore.
How can a company release a product without a single update to them! Not only I'm talking about Playbook 4G, but all those BlackBerry phones release in 2012... All other major companies, including Apple and Samsung, provide updates for at least 2 years. At least you were fair by saying the phones won't receive any updates, but Playbook, really? This is just cheap. At least don't lie next time, but then again - who is going to believe you again? Certainly not me.
*So* disappointed in BlackBerry...

"you can't blame BlackBerry for promising and giving hope and then crush hope.". This is a silly statement meant to further enrage Playbook owners. A promise was made. It wasn't "we will try to get BB10 on Playbook", it was "BB10 is coming to all Playbooks". There's a difference, so stop trying to troll.

Push play and skip to 6:30.
TH said that the PlayBook will get updated to BlackBerry 10. It is on video for all to see.

Yeah. Not too impressed either. I bought three PB's (16, 32, 64) under the assumption that BB10 was coming to the PB's (since it was stated by BB). I also convinced 5 other people to buy them as well.
For some of them, they admittedly don't care if they have BB10 or not as it is essentially now a media storage device for music and shows to keep the kids occupied. I guess that is what mine will become as well.
But I will never buy a BB tablet again since BB has lost all credibility in this market (and continue loosing credibility in the phone market as well unfortunately).
As someone posted on CrackBerry, 'never buy a device on what it may do, but on what it does today'. Unfortunately, if I were to have followed that, I wouldn't have bought my Z10 and I would have stuck with my 9900 and it also means I wont be buying an Android tablet since they still have issues to be addressed as well. Guess I'll park the tablet purchasing for another year.

Blackberry can rot in HELL.
Not another dime on this poor excuse for a company.
Loyalty is gone.
They have lied every chance possible.
They have a pathetic leader.
Their ecosystem is beyond **bleep**.
...I can't wait to join in on the class action against the bait and switch used on playbooks.
...Your on video captain BS!!
