Default Re: Playbook And Bb10

Yes it appears that RIM has given up on the PlayBook.
Acquired a Q10 on Tuesday, and one of the first apps added was Bridge. Loved how the PlayBook worked seamlessly with my e-mails, contacts etc on my 9900.
Well the current bridge for BB10 is useless with the PlayBook. All that you get is internet access through the Q10 (always connected my PB through wifi anyway) and a read me file. Totally useless! No integration of anything worthwhile.
The only glimmer of hope is that now that they are not developing BB10 for the PlayBook, (and I suspect not doing any work on the Bridge on BB10 devices until the PlayBook was also on BB10) they will develop a real Bridge between BB10 devices and the PlayBook, (both of which are QNX based), which has the same functionality as the Bridge between OS 7.1 and lower and the PlayBook.
The move to the Q10 has significantly lessened the usefulness of the PlayBook.
