RIM Pushing Out BlackBerry Bridge v1.0.5.6 Update

Bridge Update Bridge Update2

Now this is a pretty good sign that a PlayBook OS update is coming soon. I got a notification on my BlackBerry earlier tonight saying that BlackBerry Bridge has been updated to v1.0.5.6. In the past these updates have been harbingers for PlayBook OS updates in the next day or so. Anybody excited?

You can pick up the new BlackBerry Bridge v1.0.5.6 in App World. I also noticed that rr_yy already managed to get OTA’s up for it at

  1. Absolutely excited! Wonder what the update (potentially) will bring.

  2. just noticed the first fix:
    on PlayBook the Calendar now displays hours correct formatted as 24-hrs and not AM/PM – so it’sn in sync with my Torch.

  3. Usually the PB update comes very quickly after…still no PB update yet…..

  4. This morning I have an update on my Playbook… v1.0.7.2942

    And what the Blackberry Blogs says ( :

    Hi all, Michael here once again to tell you about the latest update available for your BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet. BlackBerry® Tablet OS v1.0.7.2942 is available today and it introduces one small but very important new feature: differential updates. The differential updates feature allows us to update only the sections of the BlackBerry Tablet OS that require updating. This should result in smaller download file sizes and therefore faster updating for you! Of course, differential updates feature will also come in handy as we prepare for more feature-packed BlackBerry Tablet OS updates later this year. =D

    Note: BlackBerry PlayBook tablet users must already have BlackBerry Tablet OS v1.0.7.2670 installed to experience differential updates. Going forward, all BlackBerry PlayBook tablets running v1.0.7.2942 or higher will experience differential updates.

    In addition to adding new features to the BlackBerry Tablet OS, the BlackBerry PlayBook team at Research In Motion® (RIM®) is always looking for ways to improve your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet experience. As such, we’re thrilled to tell you that we’ve also improved the performance of two key features in BlackBerry Tablet OS v1.0.7.2942.

    Improved Wi-Fi® connectivity to WEP networks
    Faster pairing between a BlackBerry smartphone and BlackBerry PlayBook tablet via the BlackBerry® Bridge™ app, and faster attachment opening via BlackBerry Bridge.

    How to update to BlackBerry Tablet OS v1.0.7.2942

    BlackBerry Tablet OS v1.0.7.2942 can be downloaded over-the-air from your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. Users who purchase and activate a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet on or after Wednesday, August 24th, 2011 will be automatically updated to v1.0.7.2942 as part of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet setup process. Existing BlackBerry PlayBook tablet users will be presented with a software update notification on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet status ribbon, or they can check for the software update at any time in the Settings Menu under Software Updates.

    There will also be an update to the BlackBerry Bridge application at this time, so make sure to install it on your BlackBerry smartphone for maximum compatibility!
