The BlackBerry PlayBook and the PlayBook OS Update 2.0 all have been rumored to be released for quite sometime and all that was missing was the official release date. RIM confirmed the new release date in a webcast that focused on “Developing native games with the BlackBerry NDK 2.0.” Not surprisingly, RIM have refused to commit to the Feb 21st date but are sticking to the update being made online within the month of February itself. In such a scenario, what is a surely is that the update isn’t too far away and we won’t have to wait too long in the unlikely event of the update not released on Feb 21 as the month itself is drawing to a close.
As for the update, its going to be the most significant since the PlayBook device was launched almost a year ago. The update is expected to bring along features such as native calendar, email, and contacts apps, along with support for Android apps on the PlayBook tablet.
