Got an existing Blackberry handset and a hankering for the goodies promised with Blackberry 10? Tough cheddar; you'll have to buy a new handset. Got a Blackberry Playbook? You'll be able to upgrade. The news comes via n4bb.com, where they're stating that the Playbook should see Blackberry 10 OS "shortly" after the launch of the first BB10 smartphone.
Naturally, there's no news as to exactly when we'll see that first BB10 handset; the models handed out to developers recently for program testing were in fact running Playbook OS. [n4bb]
