BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet OS Update v1.0.7 Coming Later Today?

PlayBook_107We mentioned a few days back that a PlayBook OS update was scheduled for today, but it was not the big update we all been waiting for. A new leaked slide from Bell points to some new features.  This can always change but hopefully it goes live soon.

New features:

  • Broader regional customization and additional language support
  • improved productivity with BlackBerry bridge
    • Zip files received as email attachment can now be viewed on smartphone
    • Flexibility to save attachments to SD card or internal memory of smartphone
  • Improved multimedia experience
    • Pictures can be viewed in portrait or landscape layout
    • Videos can be Zoomed into while it is still playing

If you do happen to get this update let us know, hopefully RIM gives us E-Mail support soon.

  1. Why do i get the feeling that the improved productivity of the bridge gonna affect att users in any way :S

    The best thing about this update is that you can view your picture in portrait or landscape.

  2. ZZZZZZZZZZZ………………

  3. No update as of 7:00pm EST

  4. Oh yea. The pictures…..

  5. Almost Saturday, still no update…

  6. RIM is notorious for releasing PR and updates at 1 to 3 am.

    Also like I said the update is not guaranteed bc they can always change the dates.

  7. I just downloaded it! Its 4am eastern time.

    • You are either mistaken (ie you deleted the NFB or yahoo icons and the OS restored them) or you are a liar. It is not out.

      • I wish you could delete icons with getting a notification to re-download the OS. I don’t know a single person still on AOL mail nor do I use it. Would love to delete or hide. Also, custom tabs would be great. Favs should remains favs but I’m starting to put anything I use even somewhat frequently there because All tab is too cluttered.

  8. lets see, dont see any updates still.. maybe rim pulled it at the last instance to fix bugs :)

  9. So it was all my imagination that I downloaded a new update that took over a hour to load last night and my bbm on my playbook no longer works? Trust me they may have pulled it but it was there and i have it.

  10. Can’t wait for this update, thanks for the heads up BR :)

  11. -I don’t understand the whining. When Netflix was DVD only, it was the greatest service ever. Now that add-on of streaming isn’t FREE, it’s awful. The DVD service is now cheaper than it was before. Redbox, Blockbuster, and Hulu don’t have the depth of the Netflix library, so there’s no way they will ever replace it.

  12. Talk about being hyped…lol… I am still pressing the check for update on my PlayBook…

    I am guessing there is no update on this, eh?

  13. will this update work on my Torch?

  14. No update yet.
