    BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 Releasing February 21st


    Once again the date of the much anticipated BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 has been confirmed. It seems as though everyone wants to be right about this one. Either way the date that we had already mentioned has been confirmed as the 21st of this month. Everyone is very eagerly waiting on this OS release, and it looks as though we are right on track for our target date.

    The PlayBook OS 2.0 promises us some very exciting things like native email, calendar and contacts. So it's no surprise why everyone is excited about this release. Until then, we wait.

    It will install automatically via OTA Over The Air installation. So basically RIM will push it to your device, and you will be prompted for an update.

    What users that are using the beta version, will have to uninstall and then reinstall the OTA OS?

    Sorry for the confusion; I meant to say- What about the users that's currently on OS 2.0.0.7111 (beta), would they have to uninstall the OS (beta) and reinstall the offical OS from RIM?

    I am sure that they will have to as its a bit buggy, and the official OS 2.0 will most likely need a fresh install.

    Anyone that is running a beta OS will need to downgrade to the latest 1.0.8 OS in order to be able to download/install the new OS

    And be sure that your battery is charged up, otherwise if it's too low you'll have to wait till it is charged before you can install the update.
