Re: PlayBook Update is available...

One thing I have noticed more than anything is the battery life has improved a lot with the new update, especially when on standby.

Re: Transferring music from PC to Playbook

I am having the same problem, but only with 64bit versions of Windows, 32Bit Version of Windows and Mac OSX seems fine. I would suspect its something to do with the 64Bit drivers for the Playbook.

Re: Why I returned to blackberry
