We have been hearing rumors that BlackBerry 10 is coming to the PlayBook in the next few months. Now Mike Al Mefleh, director of product management at BlackBerry, confirmed to Emirates24|7 (via N4BB) that we may see it as early as next quarter. Specifically he said that:
“We have a very clear road map. The company will launch six additional new devices in 2013,” said Al Mefleh and added that the PlayBook will be in addition to these six new devices.
I think they got a little ahead of themselves saying that this confirms a 10” BlackBerry PlayBook but it does give us a bit of a timeline for BlackBerry 10 on the PlayBook. There are quite a few users waiting for the update but hopefully we will see BlackBerry release a beta to developers first so they can get apps ready for it!
