Before BlackBerry Live 2013, I genuinely believed we would see a BlackBerry 10 beta announced for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. It made sense for BlackBerry to kick off the beta at the largest event of the year.
Earlier, BlackBerry stated at the BlackBerry 10 launch event that PlayBook owners could be hopeful for a release of BB10 this year. However, as the BlackBerry Live 2013 event came and went without any mention, users started getting antsy.
Our own Ross Cheriton asked Thorsten Heins, Frank Boulben and Kristian Tear about BB10 on the PlayBook during a Q&A session. In a round about answer, we were told nothing. There was not a definite yes, nor a definite no.
Low and behold, the official Twitter account for BlackBerry Mexico may have dropped the ball. Replying to a user, the account states, “…in the next few weeks will be available OS10 update w/ the PlayBook! Please be alert!”
However, the tweet seems to have been pulled, but website Good eReader was able to capture the screenshot below:
Do you think this is any indication that the PlayBook will be getting a BlackBerry 10 upgrade within a few weeks? Or, could the official BlackBerry Mexico social media rep mistakenly thought it so, but unfortunately not the case? Hard to tell at this point, sound off in the comments with what you think this could mean.
