BlackBerry PlayBook Gets Updated To OS 2.0.1

RIM (Research In Motion) has started rolling out a new software update for its now forgotten tablet, the PlayBook. Yes, people actually brought the PlayBook! The new PlayBook OS update does not bring any major changes whatsoever, but there are some speed and performance improvements.

Below is the relatively short change-log of the PlayBook OS 2.0.1 as provided by RIM -:

  • Browser enhancements to address performance with some websites
  • Improvements to support Android apps
  • Optimizations to Video Chat, PIM and BlackBerry Bridge applications
  • And much more!
The last PlayBook OS update for the PlayBook brought with it quite a lot of new features and enhancements, including a much awaited and basic functionality Рan inbuilt email client. Considering the PlayBook does not have a very large user base, it is good to see that RIM still supports the tablet.
The OTA update is already live, and users will be notified as soon as the update is available in their region. Alternatively, Playbook owners can also manually download and install the update by going to Settings-> Software Updates and then selecting the “Check for Updates” option.
