BlackBerry PlayBook OS 1.0.3 Coming Today – PlayBook OS Updates as Fast as Every Two Weeks?

IMG_3248

RIM has confirmed that the BlackBerry PlayBook will be getting OS 1.0.3 today skipping over the 1.0.1.1790 version that didn’t make it out the door. This new version brings BlackBerry Video Chat which is nice. Also at the press briefing we learned that BlackBerry PlayBooks will be getting OS updates as often as every two weeks. They are not promising that it will come every two weeks but that seems to be the minimum time between updates.

  1. This is awesome!!! Thanks for reporting.

  2. It would be great if they do this. Up until now RIM, Google, and Microsoft have had a hard time releasing updates at the same rate as Apple.

  3. wicked

  4. Hope it will come with Chinese input support…

  5. That’s some good news.

  6. RIM announces that the most obviously unfinished tablet in the market is going to be finished — eventually, piecemeal.

    Ooooh, isn’t that cool!

    • How did you get to become a moderator with comments like that? I love my PlayBook.

    • I’d have to say it places behind “Xoom” in the “obviously unfinished” category, if only by a bit. (Said as an owner of both.)

      Still, I’m not disappointed: so far updates are rolling as promised. It would have been smarter for them to wait … but then they would have taken a huge hit for not releasing on schedule, etc etc. A no-win situation this time.

    • Who the heck are you Luciano. Sound like a hater and your a moderator……….. Ronen, what gives here?

  7. drop in native Facebook, twitter and Skype clients and this would be a great Tablet

    Now, having Angry Birds running on this device, would be the icing on the cake

  9. I LOVE the short memories of people.

    Please name the first gen tablet/smartphone that came out fully featured with everything that the public deemed “essential”

    It doesn’t exist. I would venture to say the Playbook is the most complete and fully functioning firstgen device in the smartphone/tablet market and we are only 2 weeks out from launch. Imagine where we will be 2 months from launch.

  10. Does ota go everywhere at once or is it staggered?
