RIM confirms PlayBook OS 2.1 coming soon in BES 5/Mobile Fusion blog posts

We were expecting to see an update to the PlayBook OS sometime in the near future, especially since BlackBerry 10 Jam Americas is right around the corner.  Well it looks like we will be seeing something very soon.  RIM posted some blog articles today at BES 5 and Mobile Fusion updates, and in one of the posts they sort of let the cat out of the bag.

In this BizBlog post you can find the following statement,

“Updates for BlackBerry Device Service that involve functionality for managing BlackBerry PlayBook tablets will become functional after the upcoming release of BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1.”

There is of course no mention of when we will see this update, but I am expecting to see it announced at BlackBerry Jam.  We will of course let you know as soon as it drops, so keep your eyes peeled.
