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 was a little disappointed with this update tbh, it was delayed so much I was hoping for something big I.e native bbm or navigator or something along those lines but alas nothing let's hope bb10 is soon
Well I got the 326mb update. I even did a clean install incase any of my side loading and development mode may have messed anything up......still..nada.... I still have podcast and video store while other people don't have it anymore...
*sigh*. Waiting sux... I thought the new app world was.supposed to be in the update. And when u say bb10... Ur talking about the development devices right...cuz I knownthe phone has not yet launched...when it does..I'm first in line!!
