PlayBook O.S. 2.0 is going to be solid, if promises are delivered. It will have integrated Exchange email, both through BES and OWA, from what i'm reading.
The fact that you actually wrote in this article that you cant see why the price of the PlayBook would go up again really surprises me. Especially since the Android app capabilities and added features with OS 2.0 in a couple of months will finally be here.
As an independent app developer, I can appreciate coding for the BBX platform. In a lot of ways, its actually easier than other platforms. (Gasp!). They working on some crucial things still, though, and many devs will agree with me that its a work in progress, with great progress made so far.
All in all. The article is nice to let people know because it's a great bargain, but Marcus, if you can't see a reason why the PlayBook would go up in value and price in the future, then I would seriously like to know your salary, as I will be coming to take your job as a part time hobby.
