They would do much better if they had the BB10 OS coming out sooner than later

The Playbook is really nice, just needs Netflix IMO. We let my daughter use it mostly to watch movies and go to ABCmouse.com. I was surprised at how well ABCmouse.com works on this.

I enjoy the playbook, but the apps are lacking. That said, the improved android app support will hopefully get more app developers on board. The timing would be great to start now since BB10 will be coming soon. RIM has been good to us despite the failings though, recently just got Shadowgun for free, and they had a free movie download but I missed out on that.

The request for the netflix app seems to be a common question on a few websites. Why has RIM failed to deliver? I use my PB primarly for reading and news but would love to access movies.
