PlayBook OS 2.0 Displays Arriving in UK Stores

 PlayBook 2.0

We know that the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 update is right around the corner and RIM plans on doing a big refresh campaign for it with its new features. N4BB has scored an image of a store in the UK showing off the PlayBook OS 2.0 features with its new email, contacts, calendar, and video store. I am hoping RIM has finally also thrown in a store demo mode so that devices stay up to date and do not get vandalized. Lucas also noticed that RIM’s latest blog post about free PlayBooks for Android developers shows a refreshed look for App World.

Updated App World

Anybody else excited to see PlayBook OS 2.0 launch?

  1. Looks like it’s getting close to release. I think they will probably give away Playbooks with the new OS at DevCon Europe and the rest of us will see it on the 13th – pure speculation on my part, but it seems reasonable enough.

  2. Can’t come soon enough! I’m surprised that there haven’t been any leaks like there are with the OS7 OSs. 7.1 isn’t on the release roadmap until fall but people have been running the preleak for months now.

    • The PlayBook OS is controlled and pushed by RIM vs BB OS leaks come from testing versions sent to carriers. With PlayBook OS RIM does not need to hand it over to the carriers so don’t expect this to change anytime soon. Maybe once a 3G version is available, but even then RIM said it only has to hand over the code part that deals with the carriers so RIM has more control on this OS than before,

  3. They need to start coming out with those advertisements now!

  4. What’s interesting about the pic of the playbook from the developers blog here is not the new ui in appworld but rather the date on the playbook….look at the playbooks date,it clearly says Thurs Feb 16 2012. Hmmmmm
