The playbook? No vex o, my movement was/has been so scattered since then. I told you indirectly on your tech market thread though. Im really enjoying the thing wonder why RIM doesnt promote it more.

I found a workaround. I installed Playbook App Manager Extension in my chrome browser and all I need to do is drag and drop .bar files into the browser and they are installed automatically.
Thanks a lot for the tip though. smiley

I think the screen size as well as the fact that no 3G, they will have to market it as much as Apple market Ipads . . . It is a real nice piece.

Why have you not been able to use it? Do you already own a Blackberry phone? Do you have blackberry bridge installed? Have you bridged both devices?
Answering questions like this, would help resolving whatever issues you might have.

Re: Blackberry Playbook: Anyone? by Pretty002: 9:58am On Dec 20, 2012
@Lexus, tanx. So I must own a bb first

You can use any Wifi network if you dont use a bb. Apart from that, what smart phone do you have? You can use the Internet tethering feature on your playbook to share any phone's internet connection and browse with it.

I got a playbook from fhemmmy 2 weeks back and I gave my ipad2 out just days back to a cousin(& dont miss it one bit, it was always under my bed or in odd places anyway), I use the playbook a whole lot more.
Ive been using ipads since they first came out and they are too restrictive to me.

I doubt o, if its the screen size apple wouldnt have launched the iPad mini, also iPad Wifi versions sell well and there's also the 4g playbook which you would never know exists except you do some digging.
I feel their marketing dept is just weak, or they are scared of patent suits from apple. wink

What type of nokia? Does it browse? And does it have bluetooth?

If you want to ping on the Playbook then you must get a blackberry phone.

For the phone you would like to get, if you want one "good for the playbook" get a bb, preferably one with 3G and running the Newer operating system like Curve 9320(very good battery), Bold 9790, 9900, 9930 or any you like. All work with the playbook. I've also tried it with a Curve 3 (9300) and it works flawlessly there too.



Meanwhile, if your nokia browses and has bluetooth the following might be helpful.

You do not need to own a blackberry phone to use the playbook. But to maximize all your benefits + potentials on the playbook, owning a blackberry phone 3G enabled is a MUST - HAVE !!!!
Re: Blackberry Playbook: Anyone? by Pretty002: 11:30am On Dec 20, 2012

Re: Blackberry Playbook: Anyone? by cupid4ig(m): 8:53pm On Dec 20, 2012
Pretty002: warri
awwwww y didnt u post ur question on time just left warri on tuesday woild have show u how amazing the playbook is all the same my advice is dont sell ur pb for ipad cos u will be spending more and all that. i dont thing there is anything ipad can do that the pb cant except skyping which we are hoping it will comee when the os10 comes. a friend of mine that had an ipad2 after playing my sideloaded games and seeing how the bridging works vow to get one cos he have curve 4 already and he said his ipad is useless cos there is no wifi now that is where playbook magic is cos with ur mtn unlimited bis trust me if u are in 3g area and u dont know what to do just open youtube stream till u fall asleep and continue when u wake up grin grin try get a bb and see the magic of pb kiss kiss
