Default PlayBook being discontinued, Media Players on the horizon

Please Login to Remove!

So I was out the other night and was speaking with a trusted source at RIM.

I mentioned how I was just testing out PB OS 2.0 and how it was a real shame that RIM was holing it back until February. I was more or less directly told that the PB is dead and RIM will be moving away from it.

This comes from someone who is well connected to top level management, so I do trust what they say.

I also mentioned to them that I was glad RIM didn't pursue media player devices as was rumoured, to which they said "yet".

So there you have it, the PB is getting canned and media payers are coming at some point.

Obviously anyone here can take it or leave it. No I can't go into any additional details.
