That came out of left field. RIM has released a quick update for the BlackBerry PlayBook OS bringing it to v126.96.36.1998. The update is about 79 Megabytes so its not a complete overhaul and probably makes use of QNX’s differential updates. There is no word on what is in the update since the description is the same as the 2.1 release.
