RIM should do what hp did with the touchpad, just hand over the kernel and source to CM team while having a firesale on the playbook.

i cant see this os taking off with the next ipad, the google nexus tab, ICS updates, and WP8 tabs just around the corner.

A 64 GB for $299 IS a fire sale. Or if you are REALLY a cheapskate go for the 16GB for $199.

WOW, Modern Combat 2 and Asphalt 6 are given free for limited time from app world.. grab it before they become paid.. the new os rocks.. browser scored 65k browser mark points.. with all test enabled.. and playbook browser is awesome anyways.. Plays videos from you tube at 1080p... i dont have many devices but my lg thrill cannot play smoothly when i go to youtube desktop version and try to increase the resolution of videos to 1080p( thrill is grt but froyo on it sucks) but my galaxy s2 runs any thing ease.. the matter is that LG thrill has same processor as bb playbook, TI OMAP 4430.. so now think how good is QNX OS which runs a higher resolution.. so will BB London rock..?

They should have left the keyboards alone. Not a fan of the new smaller designs.

Like the update somewhat, a little more responsive and stable, which is impressive as OS1 was already good in this regard, and the email app is great. A little disappointed about how you can setup contacts for Twitter but there's no actual Twitter app or Tweetcaster which IMO is the best 3rd party one, and none of the free ones are that good (Tweedless is okay I guess) so it seems kind of pointless to have that feature when you can only use it for DMs and not for your twitter feeds, retweets, etc.
