I would no sooner believe anything posted by BGR than I would believe anything stated by RIM's CEOs. Of course, that leave me in a bit of a pickle when trying to decide what's correct and what's not when it comes to BlackBerries.

Well, the last survey from BB Beta Zone was about "Upcoming features of the PlayBook 2.0 OS we think are the most important" It is safe to assume nothing will be coming for a spell. The survey expires October 31st, 2011. If they are still asking people's opinions of features this late in the game....haha

When is Devcon ASIA? Maybe something by then?

aside from wishful thinking,
am i the only one that thinks that rim would want to make a big move
before the upcoming holiday season?
meaning, coming out with os2

rim hasnt exactly been lighting up the spread sheets lately.

the other side of the coin is that they have some serious tech problems, like the ones that are so often brought up in this forum.

my final vote,
os 2 will be out before Thanksgiving (US)

An Update on BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 «Inside BlackBerry - The Official BlackBerry Blog

"We know that many of you are looking forward to BlackBerry® PlayBook; OS 2.0, and we wanted to provide you with an update on the progress that we're making.

As much as we'd love to have it in your hands today, we've made the difficult decision to wait to launch BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 until we are confident we have fully met the expectations of our developers, enterprise customers and end-users. And here's what we're doing to accomplish that.

First off, we have decided to defer the inclusion of the BBM; application to a subsequent BlackBerry PlayBook OS release. We are committed to developing a seamless BBM solution that fully delivers on the powerful, push based messaging capabilities recognized today by BlackBerry® users around the world and we're still working on it. In the meantime, BlackBerry smartphone users will be able to continue to use BlackBerry® Bridge; to securely access BlackBerry® Messenger; on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet's high resolution display.

Secondly, we are excited to now be providing developers with the gold release of the native SDK for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet as well as a beta of BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 (launched last week at BlackBerry DevCon Americas). The developer beta allows developers to begin porting their native apps to the PlayBook platform. In the following months, the developer kit will be updated with the full Cascades animation and UI engine that was first demonstrated at BlackBerry DevCon. We expect that the developer beta will generate thousands of new applications for BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0.


Shortly we will also be starting a series of closed betas of BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 with select enterprise customers from our Early Adopter Program (EAP). These betas will be rolled out over the course of this year and are an important next step to bringing our unmatched enterprise app deployment, device manageability, security and email integration capabilities to the tablet category. The betas will be conducted within global enterprise environments and will test the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet solution from end-to-end within corporate IT infrastructures. Feedback and improvements from these betas will benefit the overall BlackBerry PlayBook customer experience.

We believe BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 will deliver a great experience for our customers, building on the powerful performance introduced with BlackBerry PlayBook tablet earlier this year. The software update will add advanced integrated email, calendar and contact apps, a new video store, as well as new functionality that will allow your BlackBerry smartphone and BlackBerry PlayBook to work together even better.

For the enterprise, we're addressing many barriers to tablet adoption, including device manageability and enterprise application deployment. Enterprises will uniquely have the ability to manage tablets from a centralized server, while BlackBerry® Balance ensures a seamless user experience for personal and professional needs and gives CIOs the peace of mind that corporate data is secure. Plus BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 will provide dedicated shelf space inside the BlackBerry App World; storefront to make approved enterprise applications easily available to an organization's end users. Together these features will help change the way enterprises view and use tablets.

So when could an end user get the new update? We expect to deliver the new BlackBerry PlayBook OS to customers in February 2012 and we'll continue to keep you updated as we progress to the launch.

- David J. Smith, SVP, BlackBerry PlayBook, Research In Motion"

If I had submitted an Android application at DevCon, I think I would be upset at this point.

Yeah, I am pretty disappointed on a few levels right now. At least the speculation is over.

They brought it upon themselves. And competition is good. It makes everyone step up their game. Without it, OEMs become complacent and their products languish. RIM, Microsoft and Palm are all examples of companies that were on top, had little competition and withered.

Until he changes his fickle mind and decided to change his opinion again.

So I guess all competitors should just pack their bags and give up. I guess that's what happened when Palm owned the market, and then when RIM owned the market, etc. Just because they own the market now, doesn't mean it will always be that way. Is RIM's PlayBook going to overtake the market, probably not. Having said that, this market is pretty young and anything can happen at this point.

I'm eager to see the reviews of the Fire after its release. Although I don't want one, I am interested in how it works, performs, etc. What I now have my sights on is the Dell Latitude ST.

What the heck is releaded? Perhaps I was a bit too tired to post last night.

Not to flog RIM when they are down but this is one of the most incredible train wrecks in recent tech history.

They are only now realizing that the NOC infrastructure architecture cannot handle multiple device PINs for the same user (the gate to native BBM and email)?! I can't believe the infrastructure architectural problems/challenges weren't known before they even released the device.

If they didn't know, they are more incompetent then I thought. If they did know, and provided roadmap feature enhancements to the public and press anyway, then they can be loosely accused of fraud.
