Just for more moans and groans from people using the playbook.
I have the 64GB unit and upgraded in Feb to the 2.1 firmware to my disappointment i noticed that its not changed really since December 2012 update. Still small font that cannot be changed.
Still Blackberry Bridge dont work for Txt and BBM on New OS 10 devices.
It seems all Blackberry Z10 / Q10 Owners are complaining and Blackberry say that 2.1 was the final firmware release. So I guess if you dont have 20/20 vision and you use a blackberry phone your screwed. If you have 20/20 vision and dont need a reading aid ( glasses) then the playbook is fine without squinting to read your text and bbm messages, If you do decide to upgrade and buy a Z10 or Q10 Id forget all you was able to do with your playbook.
The Blackberry Bridge will only allow cursor function and give your playbook internet tethering from your phone and nothing more.
Seems Blackberry have Forgotten they give us something great then forget the basics in new products.
New firmware for Playbook is required.
1. FONT INCREASE FEATURE LIKE PHONES
2. TXT AND BBM FEATURE BROUGHT BACK
3. MAKE IT USE-ABLE BY EVERYONE ( not just kids ! )
If your not willing to do this. Can you refund me £129 each for the 4 Blackberry Playbooks i bought before Xmas for my family members then couldnt give them as presents because the font was too small.
The shop wouldnt take them back because there not faulty.
Stop screwing the Consumer and make it Practical for all users. This is where Apple and Android beat you hands down.
Font size is set in main menu and works the same through-out the OS
Your phones come with Font option in set up.
Why leave it out of a playbook.
SALES FLOP because you Dont look at these comments. !
May 3rd - OS 10 was without Blackberry messenger for 24hrs. What is going on. You brought this out to save the future of Blackberry but the service and Servers are all to **bleep**. I have a great feeling my next device will be Android unless the Playbook is sorted out and made to work better and with OS10 devices.

Yea I read your other post(s). You're not happy.
BlackBerry has never said that 2.1 on the PlayBook was a final release. Never said that.
What they HAVE in fact said is that BlackBerry10 for the PlayBook is coming in the future. They have no said when, and personally I don't expect it this calendar year.

I have been hearing about a new version of the PlayBook coming out. Have you heard anything?
Presently we have three PlayBook. They all work very well. One for them is a 4G. I was thinking to replace the older ones with 4G because this is better than tethering them. The 4G is difficult to find since the last number of months. When the Z10 came out many of the Z10 buyers in my area also bought a Playbook.
The 4G version is amazing for this performance.
