RIM is Releasing the PlayBook OS 2.1 Update
Michael Clewley, the product manager of BlackBerry Playbook seems to enjoy answering various questions in his Twitter account. He recently revealed that RIM is releasing the beta version of the Playbook OS 2.1. The Canadian company has been testing all sorts of details for the next update of the BlackBerry PlayBook OS for some time now. Unfortunately, Clewley didn’t reveal clear details on what the update will bring. He promised that the details of the update will be published in the blog post soon after the update is made available. The previous PlayBook 2.0 update was quite huge and it brought a number of interesting features such support for Android apps and the availability of native email client.
The BlackBerry Playbook isn’t the most successful tablet in the market, but it’s visually appealing nevertheless. It features a 7” 1024 x 600 display and powered by a decent 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. It comes with three different storage options: 16, 32 and 64 GB. The 5Mp rear-facing camera support autofocus and the 3Mp front-facing snapper makes for a decent webcam.
