BlackBerry Launches PlayBook OS 2.0 Worldwide
BlackBerry announced the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 software update officially launched worldwide today which includes built-in email, calendar and contacts. Unique to BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0, you can now quickly manage all of your email accounts with a unified inbox, manage your schedule with new features like a People View of your day (which lets you quickly see everyone who is on your agenda for that day), and view your contacts as a social hub that contains information from popular social networks including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
Social Integration in Calendar and Contacts
The built in calendar is designed to pull in the information that matters to you from your social networks and make it available where and when you need it. Contact cards are dynamically populated with the latest real-time information from your Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts to create a consolidated view of your contacts most recent updates.
Another feature is the new BlackBerry Bridge functionality that allows you to use your BlackBerry smartphone as a remote control for your PlayBook.
The Open On functionality allows you to open your documents, photos and links from your BlackBerry smartphone onto your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet with one click. It’s a great way to combine the convenience of my BlackBerry Bold 9900 and the big screen on my PlayBook tablet.
These are just a few of the reasons I’m excited about today’s launch, and they’re just some of the great features that PlayBook OS 2.0 has to offer. Following the 2012 Consumer Electronics show, we heard a lot of great feedback on PlayBook OS 2.0 with reviews from Team BlackBerry. I’d love to hear what you think now that the software update has officially launched.
This post on the BlackBerry Help blog will provide more information about how to get started with your new PlayBook OS 2.0 update.
