    Here is the official press email from RIM for the update...

    Today RIM released BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1. This update, which is available for the Wi-Fi-only BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, offers a range of new capabilities and security features for consumers, enterprises and developers.

    With PlayBook OS 2.1, customers will now have the ability to:
    • Secure all data on the tablet; the enterprise-grade encryption can now be extended to secure personal data stored on the device
    • Text via SMS using the new version of BlackBerry Bridge (version 2.1) customers can send a text from their PlayBook through their BlackBerry smartphone; the new version of Bridge is available on BlackBerry App World
    • Use the Messages, Contacts and Calendar apps in Portrait mode;
    • “Print” documents from a PC to a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet using the Print To Go app even if the PC and tablet are connected to different networks;

    Additionally, PlayBook OS 2.1 offers new features that simplify the deployment of the tablets in the enterprise with BlackBerry Mobile Fusion. These include over-the-air enrollment to the BlackBerry Mobile Fusion server, support for ActiveSync certificate-based authentication, and additional IT Policy controls.

    For developers (and consumers), the In–App Payment system now extends to Android applications.

    The update is now available as a free over-the-air download. Customers will automatically get a notification of the update on their PlayBook, or they can tap the gear icon (in top right corner) and check for the new version under “Software Updates”.

    i always change my location to US before downloading an update and seem to get the 339mb this time. i never know what we miss out on though. I had to downgrade from BB10 to get it which was a pain
