Couple of questions.
- Would anyone know when these are due to be relased?
We need one a.s.a.p.. So, if they are not due out in the next week or two, we'll have to get something else.
- Also, is it possible to use a Playbook with a USB flash Drive (MUST be a usb flash drive & not a sd card or other) and can these hook up to a data projector? In order to use this for PPT presentations?

I'm not sure if this is an updated version or just the current LTE version, however....

Tx for the link to .ca .. I had just gone to blackberry & pulled up Devices.. Playbook.. can't really control where it goes to from there.
I think they have hdmi ... so.. with the proper adaptors, it will be possible to hook the playbook to a data projector that has hdmi & then using an adaptor cord, hook a usb flash drive to it, correct?
We want to use it for presenters that come & go, & they bring their presentation on a USB flash drive & it is always in PPT.
The other problem is... when are these coming out? The Stores listed where you buy them, cannot answer this question as of yet.

The 4g/LTE SIM carrying ones have been out for a couple of months, but not in all countries. Although some distributors offer them unlocked to any particular SIM provider, I strongly recommend you get one with a 4g contract, which is why the where to buy list only shows cell phone providers. Unlocked ones in the grey market don't get upgrades which means they won't get BB10.

Not out in all Countries.. OH I see.. well Canada should always be first since this is where the BB was born! lol
We wouldn't get one with any sort of contract. If it can't hook up to the work wireless then we won't use the net.
It's just to carry around & hook up to data projectors for PPT presentations. Out lap top broke & I thought I'd get a Playbook, instead. But since there are none to be found in this vacinity, I guess we'll have to give up on that idea & get something else.

"I see you are with Bell, yet the link you posted is for US, this link should be where you need to be.
So, the .ca site lists only 3 places you can buy & they are all carriers & none are in stock anyway. So, if we can only buy from a carrier & not in the bestbuy's & futureshop's like we could before, w/o needing a carrier, that totally blows the idea we had of using one for PPT presentations. We can't have carriers .. there's no funds to pay for that sort of thing.
