Following this morning's BlackBerry Live 2013 Keynote, the BlackBerry execs are sitting down with the press in attendance to field questions. We're live blogging it. Watch below!
BlackBerry Live 2013 Special Coverage

So where's the PlayBook update? It's all that matters to me personally...information would suffice, you know, a table scrap or crumb of information for their current users would go a long way.
May 14, 2013 at 12:04 pm
The fact that there was no information given should be all the information you need. The Playbook is all but dead and Blackberry has moved onto greener pastures. I still use my Playbook but I think its clear that Blackberry wants to distance themselves as much as possible from what was, and is, an unmitigated product disaster for BB.

Well I am going to give them until the end of the Jam to make my final decision. But it's not looking good. I hope to be wrong...
I love my PlayBook too but I'm going to dust off my TouchPad and play with Android once I figure out how to install CM9 or 10. I'll be able to BBM on it apparently but not on the BlackBerry PlayBook...LOL!

I tend to disagree with this statement. Financially it might not have been justifiable to BlackBerry, however, as a platform to test QNX in real life application it was an amazing success and set the platform for the BB10 devices as we know it.

thats kind of overshadowed by the fact that BBM is going multiplatform
May 14, 2013 at 12:12 pm
This is a VERY valid point. Why should 2.5 million PlayBookers wait for Skype, Netflix, etc when they could get BBM and every app under the sun by switching platforms to either of their big competitors?

Great move BlackBerry...
May 14, 2013 at 11:50 am
Someone ask about a PlayBook update please
May 14, 2013 at 11:51 am
Ask about Instagram!
May 14, 2013 at 11:52 am
More info on BB10 on PlayBook will probably be during the BlackBerry Jam session
CB10 on Verizon Z10

Totally wicked news out of BB Live this morning. I've NEVER seen a company announce so many things at once. It was an onslaught of posts and even the newswires were buzzing as they picked up the news.
And the stock is down 4.35% last check.
WHAT. THE. FUK?
Should have traded BB for TSLA last week...
May 14, 2013 at 11:59 am
When will I get the z10 update on T-Mobile?
May 14, 2013 at 12:14 pm
BlackBerry is taking the tech world into a new era with this news.
May 14, 2013 at 12:16 pm
ask about the Q10 speed dial. we want the speed dial like OS7.
May 14, 2013 at 12:19 pm
"They won't give an update until they have one" which, according to my "bs translation app" really means, "For the love of God, stop asking us about the Playbook, we're all trying our best to pretend it doesn't exist".
May 14, 2013 at 12:19 pm
Dissatisfactory answer about BB10 on PlayBook. Can they at least say that they're working on it?
May 14, 2013 at 12:30 pm
"Dissatisfactory", adjective, meaning something that is disappointing and unsatisfactory at the same time.
I would have gone for "craptacular" myself ;-)
May 14, 2013 at 12:39 pm
Just imagining Hamilton busily BBMing down Hangar straight or Senna corner at 200mph!
May 14, 2013 at 12:43 pm
Ask about Instagram!!!
May 14, 2013 at 2:13 pm
How does releasing BBM on iOS and Android benefit BlackBerry? Will they make money?
May 14, 2013 at 4:10 pm
Yeah, gonna wait till contract up then selling- or donating- my 9900 and Playbook. Since my life revolves around Google calendar and contacts, that's where I'll probably head. Broken promises.
May 14, 2013 at 4:27 pm
How about a Damn PlayBook update announcement. BlackBerry has royally ****** all the loyal bb users who bought the PlayBook with hopes it would get bb10. Damn disgrace.
May 14, 2013 at 5:05 pm
RIP Playbook. Daddy doesn't want to know anything about you now. Kinda remind you of a story by Mary Shelley a little? Perhaps the Playbook will catch up with Blackenstein one day and send both creator and creature down into the Artic wastes.
Sorry Thor, couldn't wait for you so jumped shipped & replaced my PB with a Nexus 7. Just hope you don't ditch the Z10 like you did the Playbook.
May 14, 2013 at 8:01 pm
Any info on instagram?
May 15, 2013 at 3:34 pm
May 17, 2013 at 3:45 am
Extremely dissapointed about no playbook news. Hope the Z10 won't share the same playbook's fate!
