RIM Publishes Documentation for BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1 & Bridge 2.1

PlayBook Bridge Update

If you needed any more proof that BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1 is coming any day now along with BlackBerry Bridge v2.1 then here it is. Piotr @BBNews.pl noticed that RIM has published an updated security overview of BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1 along with BlackBerry Bridge 2.1 (PDF Link). I am sure someone at RIM jumped the gun on this one but its pretty much a sure thing that this will launch very very soon. Keep on punching those “check for update” buttons and let us know!

  1. Can’t wait..

    Thanks for the post.

  2. I’ve got it! PlayBook OS 2.1.0.840. It’s a 1 MB upgrade. Quick and easy, no reboot required! Sweet! :)

  3. Yes, I said 1 MB, not 1 GB :) Some with 16 GB PlayBooks would have had a rough time making space for the huge 700 MB plus download, but RIM took the time to strip the build down to only send the required updated files. This is a sign of the changing times for RIM. Also, I didn’t have to reboot my PlayBook at all :)

    • I think your confussed. Both of my playbooks got a small 1mb update but not to (2.1)….. its the same os 2.0.1.358 on my 64GB wifi but my 4G LTE its at 2.0.1.668, just some important improvements to support (email, contacts,calendar)

    • That 1mb beta update was an arbitrary update that did not change major versions, If memory serves from the weekend, that 1mb update on 2.1 did not change any build numbers. When 2.1 hits publicly, it will still be a large update for all, I suspect around 300mb at least, 400-500mb probably being more in line.

  4. PDF is gone, anyone download a copy?

  5. Coming any day now. What? RIM not being on time? Unthinkable! Course there was the Playbook, all Playbook updates, BB10, 9900, 9860, 9810 just off the top of my head.
