PlayBook updated to version, brings BlackBerry World branding and SMS over the Bridge

The BlackBerry PlayBook has been updated to version, and while it doesn’t bring the BlackBerry 10 to the aging tablet, it does introduce some nice features.

Most notably, BlackBerry App World has been updated to the BlackBerry World branding, in line with the newly-launched BB10 operating system. Improvements have been made to Bridge functionality with legacy BlackBerry devices, so users can now interact with SMS messages on the tablet itself.

Minor features include browser speed improvements, a better Gmail and Yahoo account setup experience, and an audio boost.

The update is compatible with WiFi and LTE-based PlayBooks. All you need to do is head to Options/Software Update and download the new version. Let us know how you like it!
