The WiFi version of the BlackBerry PlayBook has already received its update to OS 2.1, and today the 4G/LTE PlayBook is getting its update. The OS for the 4G/LTE version of the PlayBook has been updated to 188.8.131.528 and includes many of the same features and fixes that we saw on the WiFi version.
The main enhancements in this build surround the following ares of the OS,
- Updated BlackBerry Bridge: Now you can view, respond and compose new SMS messages on their BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet when connected to a BlackBerry smartphone over Bluetooth®. You’ll also enjoy increased performance and speed of other BlackBerry Bridge functions as well.
- Email and PIM Enhancements: You’ve asked for it and we’ve delivered portrait support for email, calendar and contacts, giving you the option to use your tablet in either orientation to message.
- Improved Android Application Support: Includes Multi-Window Applications, Camera Support and In-App Payments. We all love a richer app experience, and with the improvements to the Android runtime, that’s just what you’ll get. Running the applications in separate windows allows you to multi-task between Android apps easier, and in-app payments will make it easier for you to enhance your app content.
So if you have a BlackBerry PlayBook 4G LTE make sure you grab the new update as soon as possible. Also don’t forget to stop by and let us know if you find anything new secret gems within this new OS build.
