They may refresh it. A 10 inch Playbook seems to be what will come next.
Putting BB10 on the current WiFi playbook which can be bought super cheaply at the moment could be very good advertising/promotion for the new OS but pricing any new tabs too high with all the competition out there may dampen any enthusiasm.

I paid $499 for the Playbook shortly after its 2011 launch. I had a Curve 8530 at the time. I'm trying to remember anything I used that thing for besides an alarm clock......I got nothing. Even found its "world class" browser unreliable. The apps were shocking....like Swedish metro/bus timetable apps, Indian cookbook "apps", wow.....the Playbook.

i dont agree that its andorid without an ecosystem at all. its blackberry which has an ecosystem, almost 80 million subscribers, and now you factor in the crossover ecosystem with android and you have a whole lot more and a whole lot more dynamic ecosystem. i dont at all think bb10 will kill wp, but i do think it has a lot of promise and thorsten is driving it in the right direction. IF it launches with all the top native apps and it catches on with current bb die hards, it can definitely catch a quick decent marketshare.
i for one, am really thinking about making the switch, supposedly it has real time multitasking, native keyboard supposedly made with swiftkey technology, and the design created by TAT, has me pretty much sold. i just need to see it in person first.

Given the PB will receive BB10 you can probably expect tech bloggers to give it another review and given the experience is good as the phones and has the apps the phone has, it pretty much becomes a brand new tablet. The history will be there but for current users moving forward they will be happier than ever and maybe cause some others to pick theirs back up and expect people to snatch up all the cheap ones still left in store and on ebay.

I'm rooting for Microsoft but I honestly think bb10 will do very well. The stability of wp8 has been a major shock to me and almost makes me want to try something else. In the end I know it's a new OS and fixes will come, but I have a feeling bb10 will be much more polished out the gate.
