RIM is delaying updating OS 2.0 for BlackBerry Playbook

/ On : 11:18 PM/
ShoutBloger: Research In Motion (RIM) recently announced a delaying OS 2.0 update for BlackBerry Playbook. Though it was anticipated since the middle of this year, users will get a new tablet OS 2.0 in February 2012.

As presented by RIM, the delay is done so that when released later, upgrades its OS 2.0 have more qualified bargaining position. To be sure Playbook OS 2.0 software will not have its own fuel. That means, as quoted by Reuters on Wednesday October 26, 2011, PlayBook users still have to use the Bridge.

In the newest software, RIM also provides convenience to the developers who are expected to generate hundreds of applications for the BlackBerry Playbook OS 2.0.

As is known, the Playbook is often criticized for not being able to read the email if not connected to the BlackBerry. Looks like in OS 2.0, RIM has begun to deliver the email integration capabilities that have been long-awaited.

BlackBerry Playbook tablets are also increasingly unable to compete in the market with the presence of the tablets of Apple and other competitors. This condition is even forcing RIM Playbook slashed its prices for the consumer to pick up. It is doubtful too, whether the presence of this new OS can make Playbook remain on the market.
