Purchased the playbook and case

I know its not a problem as such, but wondered if anyone could tell me why.. the charging point of the playbook, is on the inside of the offical cover!!!.. what a pain. 

The cover is supposed to protect the PB, but you have to have it open to charge.

Re: Purchased the playbook and case

It is such that you can adjust the volume and power off or on the device while the cover is closed.

 

It would be nice if holes were present for the charging connector...

Re: Purchased the playbook and case

I've seen users take the case (and the PlayBook for reference) by their local shoe repair and have them punch a hole where the charging hole "should" be located.

Re: Purchased the playbook and case

I bought a Playbook and could sideload the android apps, and thought i could do the same with the phone Smiley Sad.

I only wanted a few androids, but either have to pay again, or i cant get them.

Well, you can do so on the new BlackBerry10 model.

 

But for the 9860, the app must be specifically available for the BlackBerry OS v7, or developed by a developer for such.
