At Long Last, PlayBook OS 2.0

First announced at the Consumer Electronics Show this past January, the 2.0 verison of Research In Motion’s BlackBerry PlayBook OS is nearly ready for launch.

RIM Senior Brand Manager Jeff Gadway assures PC Magazine that the company is sticking to its promised timetable for the update and will ship it “very soon.”

In other words, it’s likely to be released during the 2012 Mobile World Congress trade show at the end of the month, where RIM is expected to have a fairly large presence.

A 400 megabyte update, PlayBook OS 2.0 will bring a number of important features to RIM’s struggling tablet, among them an Android App player and the long-awaited addition of the native email, calendar and contact apps that the device inexplicably debuted without.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
