PlayBook OS Adds Flight Mode & Other Tweaks

IMG_00000003 IMG_00000002

Our tipster is still going through the latest PlayBook OS to see what they notice. I also just heard from another friend that got the OS update so they are also checking. There are some small updates like Adobe AIR going from to and Adobe Flash updated from to but those are relatively minor.

RIM has added a new “Flight Mode” option that turns off all the radios on the PlayBook. They have also added a region selector to the language menu option. Let us know if you notice anything yourself if you get the update. Its odd usually RIM does these updates on a larger scale…

  1. That’s nice. How about the picture rotating feature?

      • Oh screw it.. nvm

        List of change:
        Enhanced Support for Saving Attachments – The BlackBerry Bridge app offers you more flexibility around where and how you save attachments for viewing and editing. You can now save an attachment to a removable SD card, or to your BlackBerry smartphone’s internal flash memory.
        ZIP Attachment Support – The BlackBerry Bridge app now gives you access to ZIP files received as an email attachment. While bridged, you can now download a zip file from an email to your smartphone SD card and then extract compressed contents for viewing or editing on your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.
        Portrait Support in Pictures App – With BlackBerry Tablet OS v1.0.7, pictures that you’ve taken with your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet or transferred from your PC can now be viewed in either portrait or landscape formats for the layout that best fits your needs.
        Pinch to Zoom in Video App – Use the pinch gesture to zoom in on the finer details of your favorite video content, just like you would with a website or picture today – all while the video continues to play.

        With BlackBerry Tablet OS v1.0.7, RIM added additional support for the following 15 languages: Basque, Catalan, Czech, Danish, Galician, Hungarian, Bahasa Indonesia, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese Brazilian, Portuguese European, Swedish, Turkish, Romanian and Russian.
