BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2 Now Available for Download!


The BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2 is now available for download, so you need to get it now. There’s some amazing additions to this update that we’ve been expecting, ever since we first saw a demo of the features a few months ago . You can now get your email, calendar, and contacts, all sync’d with your PlayBook. This is a big turning point for not only RIM, but for the PlayBook. If you’ve ever not picked up your PlayBook because you went to check your email on your smartphone, today will change all that. It’s going to be really interesting to see how everything changes now that RIM’s tablet has the functionality we expect of a modern tablet.

    It’s not that the Android Market will be available, it’s that Android developers are porting their apps to Playbook.  There’s already android apps available… you shouldn’t be able to tell the difference.  BlackBerry doesn’t want two app ecosystems on their device but just the one App World.  The open and act like regular playbook apps… in the background it runs an Android Java Machine so that all Android App Developers had to do was re-export their app for playbook (some more easily done than others… but a fairly quick process).
