Rumor: BlackBerry PlayBook OS Update Scheduled for Today?


I am hearing from a very solid and reliable source that there is a scheduled BlackBerry PlayBook OS update for today June 6th 2011. Our source is not sure if RIM is still holding to the June 6th rollout for the US but hopefully there are no delays. So far the things I hear are coming in this update are not ground breaking but I have not seen the whole change log.

In other words if you have time throughout the day please mash that “Check for Updates” button and send us a tip if you see anything!

  1. Interesting…

  2. If the Check for updates button were a physical one, I must have broken it by now!

  3. Ha yeah I just wanted to give you guys a basic idea of when to be mashing that update button. We are still working on getting a change log but as of yesterday the update was scheduled for June 6th rollout. Hopefully they don’t find any last minute bugs.

  4. So much for the updates every 2 weeks or so they talked about at BlackBerry World!

  5. The “every 2 weeks” was actually “as often as every 2 weeks if necessary” (or something close to that). People keep misinterpreting, out of frustration with not having an update that at least fixes the critical bugs (such as hundreds of new apps not even showing up in App World). If it fixes even a half dozen such glaring flaws, it’s been worth the wait…

  6. Do we think the Android VM will be available with this update? How about native email? Is the the “Glory” update that we’ve all been waiting on?

    • From what I understand this is more of a house cleaning update though that Hail Mary update is coming after. The only tricky part about these releases is many times RIM decides to simply roll over one and include it in the next release. For example there was another OS release that was supposed to come out before 1.0.3 released at BlackBerry World. RIM simply skipped over it publicly.

    • Doubtful you’ll see the Android VM in this update. Native email I wouldn’t expect until closer to the cellular versions of the PlayBook are released.

  7. Hopefully my screen lock listens for orientation changes so I don’t have to type my password in upside down anymore.

  8. I’m waiting! 😀

  9. I don’t use my playbook anymore since i see only apps like Atari.
    Nothing like NFS… you see Tic Tac Toe in the top 25… i think there’s not support of the developers. It’s a shame!

  10. Looks like it may still be coming tonight
