RIM releases Software Update 2.1 for BlackBerry PlayBook

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. It brings the venerable PlayBook one step closer towards the BlackBerry 10 update slated for next year. Hit jump for the full spread of PlayBook 2.1 features

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”.
