BlackBerry PlayBook getting BlackBerry 10 update “in the next few weeks”?

BlackBerry PlayBook

We’ve heard that BlackBerry PlayBook users will get BlackBerry 10 update at some point but somehow we expected that to happen closer to the end of the year. Now we have a new piece of information suggesting that PlayBook will get its BB10 treatment “in the next few weeks.”

The information comes from the official BlackBerry Mexico Twitter account, saying: “In the next few weeks will be available OS10 update w/ the PlayBook!”

Unfortunately, that tweet has since been deleted leaving us pondering when exactly PlayBook users will get their BB10 goodies.

We’ve no doubts the Canadian company is working on such project though as you can presume, it’s not just a matter of porting an existing platform to a bigger screen. There are a number of small changes and tweaks to ensure for an optimal user experience. We’ll get back to you as soon as we have something new to add to this…

    Suddenly all those users who bought the PlayBook will actually start using it…

    • Check out the consumer review sites, Playbook owners love it. Its only snooty iSheep and Fandroids that hate it….sorry fellas the dualopoly is over and you’re the dinosaurs.

        lol, i have a playbook and i wouldn’t say i love it, quite the opposite.

        • Is your opinion more valuable than consumer review sites with hundreds of reviews? You’re starting to sound like a tech journalist, self centered, egotistical and a snob.

            Gotta say – I have a Playbook and it’s still pretty slow and buggy. The web browser crashes more than it should and the whole experience is frustrating. I’m hoping that it actually becomes a useful device with BB10 on it.

    • I am the smrt

      ya i am one of those people. i like my playbook but i don’t use it that often. mind you i think that goes for most people who have the new smartphones. they are making the tablets obsolete as the screen sizes for smarthphones get bigger.

    There is no official statement on updating the OS on the PlayBook. Anything beyond that are just “academic”.

    Bought the Z10 on the assumption it was compatible with the Playbook, which I use a lot only to find it does not, rendering the Z10 just marginally above a plastic and glass brick. Come on Blackberry, get it together! This should have been resolved before the release of OS10!! I’ve been a long time BB supporter but this has just about pushed me to the limit to stepping off into the world of Droid.

  • quickpokingyourcustomers

    I don’t get this upgrade soon I will dump ALL my blackberry devices. As is I am very close to doing it…

  • Brian S..

    I really like my playbook but at times Iget bored with lack of good apps or games and not a whole lot of customizable options I hope we get this update and it makes the experience something to appreciate
