Will there be BlackBerry 10 for BlackBerry PlayBook? No signs from BlackBerry Live 2013 yet

In past one year we have been hearing from many renowned bloggers that BlackBerry 10 will be there for present BlackBerry PlayBook. Even some of the websites have claimed that BlackBerry has made official confirmation that BlackBerry 10 will be launched for PlayBook. But from BlackBerry Live 2013 it seems BlackBerry is not even interested to discuss on it. I think it is a high time for BlackBerry to made it official whether there will be BlackBerry 10 for PlayBook or not.

 

At least BlackBerry should show some respect for it's PlayBook customers by adding native twitter, Linkedin, improved FaceBook and Sharing features. It feels like they have abundant PlayBook users. BlackBerry should remember that PlayBook user are the real and die hard fan of BlackBerry. Because this chunk of BlackBerry users purchased PlayBook despite horrible reviews of PlayBook since launch.

I used to be an Apple technician in Edinburgh and then for many years in Toronto........OS updates are vital to reinvigorate their hardware and to show its customers' that they listened to them. Apple always wanted to get things right for their fans. Give them the best experience possible using Apple hardware.

 

It just seems so UNPROFESSIONAL of Blackberry to not support their current tablet as even if they are thinking to the 'future' with new devices and their phone's, the future is NOW. TOMORROW. A WEEK FROM NOW.ETC.

 

The Playbook is Blackberry's device of 'NOW' and as such should be fully supported by Blackberry.....its the principle of the thing.

 

Apple don't forget about their earlier hardware if its part of a family.....ie ipod, ipad etc..at least until an entirely new piece of hardware makes the old product sort of redundant (ipad1, ipad touch first gen).....why does Blackberry think its ok to do so??????

 

There are so many fantastic things about the playbook which I didn't appreciate before buying it and I for one want to see that continue.......BB10 is vital for the playbook just so that it becomes the ideal companion for the new blackberry phone......CONTINUITY with your product Blackberry.......I shouldn't have to explain the 'basics' to such a massive business.

Very true Monz......you have put a significant Comparision. To retain customers companies should watch their old customers,because they will be their future customers. Majore percentage of customers doens't upgrade their device with every new release.

BB10 for the PlayBook is coming, hopefully this year, unlikely before the end of the summer.

Because BlackBerry personnel have stated clearly in the past that the PlayBook would be upgraded to BB10 at some point.

True. But the matter was ignored at BB Live. For awhile, BB10 for PB was plastered everywhere, but now things seem to be hush-hush. The user base is understandably skeptical.

I was there at BBLive. It wasn't hush hush.

 

It just was not part of the focus of the event.
