    BBM on PlayBook OS 2.1?

    Interesting thing happened to me today. I received a software notification update on my PlayBook. The app was 1MB.

    Once installed, I had a new icon called 'Bug Reporter' which appears to be an internal beta test bug reporting program.

    What the really interesting thing is, is that in the list of apps that the report applies to - one of the apps listed is Native BBM!

    I'm not going to hold my breath, but with those 4G PlayBooks out there, do you think that 2.1 might bring some BBM goodness with it?

    Check it out:

    Oh, and don't miss the word 'Navigator' underneath as well

    That's actually really cool. I gotta say everyone's been saying that the biggest delay in 2.1 has been because of Native BBM making its way to the PB in it. This definitely helps corroborate it.

    If Native BBM and Navigation make it to the PB as it is - I will be very impressed with RIM and the team.

    This will also be one of the best-kept secrets since they announced the PlayBook

    Nice find thanks for sharing. I suppose we will see it eventually, but you never know they may hold off until BB10.

    I think they will hold off till BB10 but it may be released for development alpha for full app integration perhaps before then.

    Nice find, John.

    I would imagine that BBM could come to OS 2.1. However, when we talked with Vivek Bhardwaj about BBM and PB OS, he hinted that we wouldn't see it till BB 10 OS. You never know. It would be a very nice surprise.

    I'm going to go with no BBM until we get BB10 on the PlayBook. The rumors of SMS for 2.1 could hold me off until BB10 though. Ever since I got the Bold 9900 I found I do a lot more Bridge then I did with the Torch 9810.
