Goodwill, going, going...

Playbook was my first experience of any BB device and before that I had never entertained the idea of a BB phone. I liked the PB and the idea of BB10 so much I ended up buying three more PB's for family members. I even begun to seriously consider the Z10. However, the lack of concrete info re BB10 for the PB and BB's glaring failure to capatilise on this group of customers/users means any goodwill I feel towards BB and their products is quickly dissipating. Hope I'm wrong and BB stop dangling the BB10 carrot.

 

Before anyone else says it, yes, I still have a very capable device and the PB is still a joy to use but if I'd bought a Z10 and was kept dangling like this then I wouldn't be happy. So no Z10 for me in the near future.

Re: Goodwill, going, going...

It'll be several months before you see BB10 for the PlayBook... perhaps as late as end of this year.

But you're right, there is no concrete announcement of ETA yet.

Gut feeling guess, or info from the "conclave"?

I'd love it it were released or announced or BlackBerry Live this year (mid-May) but I just don't think it will be.
