The software update is now available as a free download for all BlackBerry PlayBook tablets.
New features include an integrated email client with a powerful unified inbox, social integration with calendar and contacts apps, improved mobile productivity and an update to the BlackBerry Bridge app, as well as other new apps and content.
“Building on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet’s proven web browsing, multimedia and multitasking strengths, the new BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 introduces a range of new communications and productivity enhancements as well as expanded app and content support,” said David J. Smith, SVP Mobile Computing, RIM.
In conjunction with the release, RIM is making available an initial release of BlackBerry Mobile Fusion that will include support for managing BlackBerry PlayBook tablets and BlackBerry smartphones in an enterprise. The full release is planned for late March 2012.
