Canadians who have the BlackBerry PlayBook 4G LTE can now upgrade to OS 2.1, I believe it’s at OS 18.104.22.1688 now. Originally this OS was released to PlayBook Wi-Fi only users on October 3rd, but starting today users on Bell, TELUS and Rogers should be able to download (carriers have now approved the OS update). The change log is the same as the Wi-Fi version:
- Allows PIM (Messages, Calendar, Contacts) to be viewed in portrait orientation
- PIM – Deep Folder Hierarchy.
- BlackBerry Bridge will now support viewing SMS messages on the PlayBook
- Print to Go will now work across different networks
- Android apps will now be run in separate windows instead of one window for every Android app
- Android apps will now have the ability to use the PlayBook camera
- A customer will now be able to make in-app payments within Android apps
- Allows for Wi-Fi to be used for Bridge communication between two devices if they are on the same Wi-Fi network
Click “Software Updates” and it should be waiting for you, or will be very soon.
