RIM is sending out the following emails to developers asking “Is your app ready for BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0?” They are asking devs to have their applications submitted “by February 7, 2012 to allow time for review and acceptance prior to the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 launch.”
Here is the email BerryReview received:
Is your app ready for BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0?
Dear BerryReview LLC,
BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 will be released in February. We request that you test your apps against the new OS to confirm compatibility and ensure a great end user experience.
Test your app directly on your BlackBerry PlayBook with the latest OS2.0 image by registering at: https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/native/beta/register/ or alternatively download and test using the latest OS 2.0 simulator at https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/native/beta/download.
Before testing your app, take a few moments to review the article “Best Practices when Developing for the BlackBerry PlayBook” at:http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Testing-and-Deployment/Best-Practices-when-Developing-for-the-PlayBook/ta-p/1514865.
If you need to submit a new version of your app to BlackBerry App World, please do so by February 7, 2012 to allow time for review and acceptance prior to the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 launch.
The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet now with PlayBook OS 2.0 brings together the best of BlackBerry communications, powerful productivity tools, and your favorite applications, movies, and music to help you make the most out of every moment.
We look forward to having your app on our new OS!
