They should've make a new gen PlayBook, BB will be a big hit if they make that.

The playbook was horribly over priced at $499.99 when it launched. But when it dropped to $199.99 it sold like hot cakes.

Got mine for $199.99 at Best Buy. Hoping they update it to BB10 soon.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I wouldn't get too excited ; the playbook has only 1GB of ram, BB10 requires 2GB minnimum to be smooth

It's a great device except browsing the Web is slower than on my Lumia 920. I'm hoping they fix that with BB10 though. Then I'd actually use it more.

The d**k Tracy watch is not wanted, much like the google glasses. Gimmicks.. You still need a phone to drive them or the headset.. neither are form factors anyone outside a hipster will want.

Given the amount of Iphones sold, I'd say the hipster market's pretty big.

BB should not go there, at least not yet. It needs a win in the form of a successful launch before diversifying its efforts.

I grab de 64GB for 199 & enjoy using it via HDMI on my 47" LED using my Bold 9900 as a remote.

It's sweet, high res & nice.

I'm an Android Fanboy, but use Blackberry to play around!
