Blackberry Mexico has confirmed that the new Blackberry 10 operating system will be hitting the Playbook in the next few weeks. This will ensure that many of the most popular apps, such as Netflix and Instagram, will finally be available via our Good e-Reader App Store.
Blackberry 10 is the latest operating system to hit the Z10 and Q10 smartphones. It took years of development to ready it for a commercial release and is the last hope of Blackberry to remain relevant in the hardware world.
Many top executives at Blackberry have claimed they have no plans to make any more tablets, as they see them as a dying technology. Instead, the company is betting on licensing out BBM and its BES technology out to Apple and Android developers.
Still, the Playbook crowd is tremendously loyal to Blackberry and the fact that BB10 is finally going to be released will breath new life into it. This will ensure that thousands of apps will be able to run on the platform.
