You are making is sound like this is official. It is just someone's opinion on another forum. They maybe are correct, but for now, it is just rumors.

I find the Android engine a bit flaky. The Android apps submitted to the app store a bit less than others that are just side loaded. Hopefully this will entice developers to develop native for OS2.

By that logic Apple or Google wouldn't have had Netflix or Skype for the same reason.. Logic seems flawed to me, and it is just one person's opinion.

I agree. With a Netflix account, I like the ability to watch it on anything - PC, Xbox, PS3, Apple TV, iPhone/iPad, Android phone/tablet. I wouldn't subscribe to a video service that only worked on PlayBooks and BB10 phones.

Smile Access to 3G

At the price, the PB is a real bargain. a pity about Skype and Netflix.

90% of my use will be on WiFi.I think I will be able to access 3G through my jb'd iPhone, using MyWi. i do this on my iPad 1 currently, when travelling by car. Most highways have excellent cell coverage, with almost no dead spots.

I haven't decided to but the PB yet, because it is really a luxury. It's the price of 3 fill-ups of gasoline. Priorities, priorities?

Doesnt seem to be much different. I have to admit, I haven't tried bridge since updating. Everyone was waiting for 2.1 but got this instead lol! 2.1 should be next followed by BB10 in the fall / early 2013??

For some reason, RIM pulled the update shortly after launch.

RIM had this to say:

RIM discovered an issue with the PlayBook software 2.0.1.668 update. The update has been removed. Customers that have already successfully updated to version 2.0.1.668 are not affected and can continue using their PlayBook with the updated software.
I did the update, have not noticed any issues.

Mine are both up-to-date as well, no real issues. Some were experiencing battery drains and other weird things. I read somewhere else however there were updates from OS 1.7 issues and that is why it was pulled. Who really knows though!

For those that have upgraded to 2.0.1.668 and are having issues, RIM suggests you downgrade your OS via DM. Since they've pulled it, DM will prompt you to install the latest available OS, which would be .358 I believe.
