BIS 4.1 Update Brings PlayBook Support ?

We know that native e-mail for the PlayBook is going to be shown at devcon with a possible roll out soon after. The BIS 4.1 update was schedule for sometime this weekend in some area and it looks like some already have it. Ben noticed the following on the BIS site: “BlackBerry Tablet setup is not supported from this website. Please use your tablet to access e-mail.”

RIM has been criticized because they have built most of their business around being able to do e-mail better than the competition and having a tablet from them without native e-mail did not help the PlayBook.

So this is some good signs that we will have e-mail on our PlayBooks soon. What do you think?

  1. Well it’s about time.

  2. My Bold 9930 has been acting odd all morning. Originally seemed to be caused by a BBM beta connected app. All the BBM Connected apps got disconnected after I deleted the one that created 2 apps in the BBM settings with one stuck showing pending. But after a few reboots I started noticing my email connected super apps were not responding, BIS had logged out last I looked. On Verizon Wireless btw.

  3. It would seem to me that if it says tablet setup is not supported that the PlayBook email is not ready. It sounds to me like they are telling us to open up web mail. Then again, maybe PlayBook BIS is just not supported in THIS update to BIS. Hopefully an update will come out soon that does. However, since DevCon is right around the corner, I wouldn’t think they would update BIS now and then again in just a matter of days/weeks.
