RIM Releases BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 Update Today
Well, finally, RIM has released the PlayBook OS 2.0 update today. It is thought to be the biggest update to its tablet operating system so far. OS 2.0 update has brought so many improvements which were strongly anticipated. New features have been included in this update like a native email client, social networking integration and some cool stuff as well like option to use your tablet as a remote control.
That’s not it, one of the most notable and important feature included in the PlayBook OS 2.0 update is the ability to install and run Android apps. Additionally, the developers are also registering some of those Android apps to the BlackBerry App World as well.
You might remember that when the original PlayBook first came out, it did not look like a complete slate because it was missing so many necessary features like a native email client. If someone wanted to access their mailbox on the tablet, they would have to tether it to a BlackBerry smartphone. So, the tablet was dependent on a blackberry smartphone instead of being an independent product from the manufacturer.
Thankfully, the new version of QNX based OS has finally fixed all those issues and added some other top notch features as well which will bring it almost on the level with Android and iOS. The update also brings a new keyboard which is capable of predicting in a better way about the words you are typing. Additionally, PlayBook OS 2.0 also brings integration to Facebook, Twitter and Linkedln.
BlackBerry Bridge is another new feature included in OS 2.0 which will have the ability to use your BlackBerry smartphone to control your Playbook tablet remotely. But that’s not it, RIM has designed this app in such a way that now you will be able to control any tablet with your BlackBerry handset via Bluetooth.
