RIM did not deliver the live update we were hopping for OS 2.0 but if you are a developer you can register your BlackBerry PlayBook for early access to the OS and test your Apps. Note that this will not include native PIM apps that we were all hopping for. To register follow this link and input the information, it may take minutes to 24 hours to receive the update pushed to your device.
RIM Notes: There is 24 hour window for devs to install the update if not they will need to register again.
