would you say that the Bold 9900 is destined for a museum, just because it will get 7.1 updates but not an OS 7.2 or BB10 ?
People keep buying the 9900 despite the fact that it will not get the BB10 OS.
I don't think so. So why would you say that of a PlayBook ?
Maybe not a museum piece, but obsolescent. Only available because of excess inventory. Playbook is past that stage and the level of support has not been defined in detail. .
Hard as it may seem they shafted us.

I've been faithfully using my Playbook and Torch 9810 which I love while I continually root for Blackberry to succeed. As soon as BB10 was available for my Playbook, I was going to get a new Z10. Now I have lost all respect for Blackberry because of this about am rethinking my whole plan. I want fewer devices that all work the same; not more with different versions of OS's, apps that can run on one or another but not both. I feel cheated.

The iPhone and the iPad have the same OS.
The Z10 and the Playbook are both based on QNX: one can't understand why the guys at Blackberry in Canada can't be at least as good as those in California, because at least we're tougher than they are, and have the two devices run the same OS.
OK, that's a joke, but in reality with the video that Witmen uploaded (sadly I can't find it on YouTube), it means that Thorsten Heins speaks with forked tongue. That is not how to keep customers.
I am looking at how to have two other makes of machines work together, and then I said to myself 'NFC' and things became a little clearer. Perhaps I don't have to throw away my Z10 because of that.

This is extremely dissapointing...!!! Many people were anxious for OS10 on the Playbook. When the Q10 first came out, many people purchased a Playbook at the same time as the phone. The Playbook sold out in most stores. I wanted a 4G Playbook. I had a very difficult time to find one.
Now I have three Playbooks. We use them in our family. It is a terrific tablet. For us the size is right, and the performance is great. Now we are dissapointed that there will be no OS10 for it, and most likely the Bridge program will not be fixed to run with the Z10.
I tried a number of other different types of phones. I like the Blackberry the best for a fair number of reasons. I have been using Blackberry phones for many years. Out of curiosity, I tried other phones for a few weeks just to learn what they are like. I always came back to Blackberry, because it fit best to my needs.
What I don't understand is why are there so many people bashing the Blackberry devices???!!! This is very frustrating. In actual fact, even though the Blackberry device is not as strong on gadgets, it is a terrific quality and well performing product. So-far their tech support has been excellent.

The 9900 is selling very well because of the keyboard, the price is lower, it is a very good proven phone, and it can Bridge very well with the Playbook. The Q10 and Z10 also work well. They do not fully bridge to the Playbook, and they had a few bugs when they first came out. What is interesting, is many of these bugs should have been spotted during beta testing.
I use a Z10. I am also considering a Q10 to replace a two year old Bold 9900. I like these new phones from Blackberry. They are terrific!

I'm one of the fools who bought a Playbook and now Blackberry won't update the device to BB10, Blackberry I payed for this device and i recieved back only bugs never fixed and now this! I won't buy a Blacberry device again due to the treatment of customers! Tablets won't die, the palybook will because of you and you're mismanagement!
Sorry for my bad english
