Re: Is there a future update for playbook planned?

To add a little more to that, there may be small maintenance updates but the plan to update the PlayBook to BB10 has been scrapped and therefore the playbook OS is likely to remain as it is.

We've had two updates since BlackBerry and then-CEO Heins said no more updates... albeit small updates, they did add some additional functionality to the PlayBook.

BBSJdev, JSanders. 

 

Your replies are noted, and are answers such that a politician would make. However, the question posed by 'vinodhph' was an unequivical question for the future, not the past.

 

'Is there a future update for playbook planned?'  The answer is 'No, Never'.

 

In deference to yourselves before you react. The Playbook is excellent and better than most other tablets. However the answer I gave was to the question asked.

However, the difference in our answers is... your answer could be wrong.

 

Since there have been two updates since it was announced "no more updates", my simply telling the user that information is enough.

 

And, added to that the fact that you don't know for a fact that no more updates are planned or coming... again, since two have come since it was announced there would be no more.

Re: Is there a future update for playbook planned?

I am disapointed in how the Playbook is being slowly abandoned. It is a terrific tablet concept and it works very much like the Z series phones.  I was hoping for the 10 update which will never come.

 

There are very few if any new programs available for the Playbook. I was hoping to have something that would allow it to work with Netflix, and improvements with some other types of services.

 

We own a number of Playbooks. Some are 4G and work very well on the mobile phone network. They are very responsive and efficient in their operation. The camera is also very impressive for a tablet camera.

Even I feel the same. Atleast android run-time support would've been nice addition to playbook.

Re: Is there a future update for playbook planned?

Just to throw some gas on the smouldering fire...

http://forums.crackberry.com/blackberry-playbook-os-f228/2-1-0-1917-os-update-916731/

 

Look at the build numbers, past and present. All old builds were legit...my money is on a minor update being released in the next little while, probably a Flash update.
