    That'd be awesome if it was true, but I highly doubt it.

    It should be landing around that time. I mean, it is done and all. So the release is immanent.

    It is all done, but there is a lot of field testing that must be done by carriers, RTM's, and third party reviewers.

    My Guess is the carriers are going to be the worst part.

    Especially AT&T. AT&T has a very rigorous testing period, and they are not afraid to hold back a product (take a look at the new Blackberry's, AT&T isn't going to have them out until November).

    It's possible, but I do not know for sure. AT&T, while it has some of the fastest 3g, and gets a majority of phones that get released, they are a terrible provider. They load up phones with crapware, and block some major features that certain phones offer, so that they can sell the same service (take AT&T blocking Blackberry Bridge for example). The reps at AT&T, at least in my area, are not the best, and the plan prices are ridiculous in comparison to the competition.

    i dont understand blocking the blackberry bridge. thats how the bb tablet works. you almost need to bridge it to your phone. thats is just stupid. but, that being said, i still have unlimited data, so i cant leave them.

    The reason that they blocked Blackberry Bridge, is because bridge provides a tethering option. You can use bridge to sync your phone to your playbook, then the playbook can run off of your phone's 3g signal. Since AT&T blocked it, you then have to pay for their tethering service.

    I get pretty decent coverage from AT&T, at least in my area. The main reason I'm staying is because they get all the best phones.

    I don't get it at all. Blackberry users are paying for their data plan just like everyone else, it's not like it costs AT&T any extra to let BB users sync to their tablet.
