PlayBook Update

Following close on the heels of the BlackBerry Bridge update, as expected the BlackBerry PlayBook OS update is now rolling out as well. This latest version puts us at v1.0.7.2942 and while it mostly looks like a bug fix release, hopefully kinks are worked out to make everything run smoother than ever.

Official Changes:

  • Improved Wi-Fi® connectivity to WEP networks
  • Faster pairing between a BlackBerry smartphone and BlackBerry PlayBook tablet via the BlackBerry® Bridge™ app, and faster attachment opening via BlackBerry Bridge.
  • Differential Updates: The differential updates feature allows us to update only the sections of the BlackBerry Tablet OS that require updating. This should result in smaller download file sizes and therefore faster updating.
