The BlackBerry PlayBook, a tablet computer with BlackBerry OS (based on QNX Neutrino) made by Research In Motion (RIM) which was first released in April 2011, didn’t quite impress a lot of people because of the lack of some features such as a native e-mail client, calendar, and contacts, even though the hardware is good.
Now, the long awaited OS 2.0, which will support those features, is expected to be released next week (February 21st as many speculate), so this is definitely good news! Also, the updated OS will allow the PlayBook to run Android apps. I’ve already installed the 2.0 beta version on mine, but haven’t really tested it fully. The beta had some of the features disabled, like the Video Chat, so I’m relieved that the 2.0 full version will be coming soon!
Please, RIM, don’t disappoint!
