RIM Adds a Power Button On the Latest PlayBook OS Update

PlayBookQuite a few people took issue with the PlayBook having a small power button. Personally I didn’t it at all it doesn’t take much effort to click it and it gives you a small click for feedback. My brother was doing an OS update on a friends PlayBook and he noticed it said RIM has added a power button to the list of apps. This makes it a lot easier to power off the PlayBook or restart. So if you had issues with the power button now you have another option to turn off your PlayBook. So it does seem that RIM is paying attention. The PlayBook is awesome and it can only get Better in my opinion.

  1. actually the power button has been there. i saw it when i purchased on the release date. :)

  2. i have version 1690 and it is there :)

  3. Yes, this was present at launch and I use it as opposed to the physical button to power off the device.

    Having said that, RIM needs to add a “lock device” button as well. This will make locking/sleeping the device far more easy to do.

    It gives you the option to power down or sleep.
