Love the update,keep up the good work of letting us know the latest crackberry

Michelle, how about CB inquiring with RIM into the obvious problems setting up certain native email accounts -- such as Yahoo and Gmail -- and keeping them set up? They've been reported up and down the forums. These kind of difficulties don't appear on any other device except the PB, so inquiring minds would like to know how soon RIM is going to address this problem.

Loving the Playbook - and it just got better! Hoping to see more Android Apps soon!

OS 2 has put the fun back in Playbook

Just waiting for Skype now.......

Introduction of skype and android apps to RIM stuff would be a blast!

jreed337

Can't really comment. I gotta check it out first but if its worth the fuss ill help markit the shi* out of it.

Cafeina

I love it! (I'm waiting for Skype too, BTW. But I'm thankful for what we do have.) ☺

No netflix app but the movie store is really good!

Enough with the video games. When is a pdf reader with bookmark capability gonna arrive? Please RIM provide a document reader and tablet for the professional. If I wanted games, I would have gotten an iPad.

cstacherski

You have to understand that the massive amount of sheeple who invest into tablets, smartphones, etc. love those dumb games. I for one can deal without them, but that's what's going to keep RIM in business unfortunately.

I've said it once, I'll say it again... Blackberry products are for professionals. People who are constantly meeting new people, need to stay ultimately organized and connected, and desire a professional appearance.

Downloaded OS 2.0 along with all the other new stuff. It seemed to work fine UNTIL I decided to add the PB manager to my computer. Somehow the PB interface is messing with my BB 9800 desktop software. It says RIMBBLaunchAgent.exe- No Disk stating that "there is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive\device\harddisk3\DRS." Everytime I click one of the 3 buttons (cancel, try again, or continue) it takes a few mins and pops back up. Any suggestions???

Has anyone figured out how to sync contacts from bb phone(torch in my case) to the PlayBook ? I only want contacts from my torch on my PlayBook and not entire outlook contact list or any other contacts. Sure would appreciate any help with this one-other than that I'm very pleased with new update and am typing this using my torch on my playbook :)

Initially I was very satisfied and enjoying the new features, but then I realized they took away Bridge Browser, then the bluetooth trackpad and keyboard feature stopped working, and if I want to tether my Playbook to my 9900's T-Mobile internet service...I'm pretty sure I have to pay my carrier an additional tethering fee.

Edited: Now everything is working again after a few reboots. Idk...I absolutely love Blackberry, but I will admit...this Playbook is a bit clunky. It doesn't feel like a Blackberry to be honest. ...Just something about it.

BLACKBERRY PLAYBOOK 2.0 OS ISSUE. SCREEN CONTINUOUSLY FLASHES ON OFF w BRIDGED MESSAGES function. How can I unistall as this problem is not going away. When message area is reduced to small window, only the window is flashing white & black.........

gidiano

Same here. This remained after the update as it was during times with the beta. Any advice to fix it without a wipe?
Since the beta i am working with an app "bridge OS2 alternative" what at least enables a cumbersome workaround.
Heeeeelp, I am desperate!!!!

We RESTORED a mid Jan 1.0 Playbook BACK UP via BB Desktop Manager. This fixed the problem, and we don't know why. Then we restored our 2.0 backup and the same issue occurred. again. So now were back to January back-up and leaving it alone. We found no problems with our Blackberry Bold 9930. The bridge was original updated the same day as 2.0. If anyone knows what caused this, please let us know.
