Just a quick note to let you know that OS v2.1.0.1032 is now available for download from the Blackberry servers. Check out the improvements below:

  • Allows PIM (Messages, Calendar, Contacts) to be viewed in portrait orientation
  • PIM – Deep Folder Hierarchy. Previously, if a customer had multiple nested folders within email
  • Allows for WiFi to be used for Bridge between 2 devices if they’re on the same WiFi network
  • BlackBerry Bridge will now support viewing SMS messages on the PlayBook
  • Print to Go will now work across different networks
  • Android apps will now be run in separate windows instead of one window for every Android app
  • Android apps will now have the ability to use the PlayBook camera
  • A customer will now be able to make in-app payments within Android apps

I’ve been playing with the Beta of OS 2.1 for so long that it’s hard to remember what OS 2.0 was like. One thing I did notice though, was that the browser is far more responsive in this build compared to the the beta. There is noticeably less checker boarding when browsing sites.

So, now the wait begins for the the beta of BB10 on the Playbook. I’m sure all Playbook users out there are eagerly awaiting this beta!
