Don't get too excited on this one just yet, but it looks like some BlackBerry Beta Zone developers are receving the following email with information on an upcoming OS update to 1.0.6. The update will be available to select developers so they can prep their apps for the upcoming update.
On behalf of Research In Motion®, we are pleased to tell you about an exclusive Preview Program focused on providing developers a chance to test their applications on BlackBerry Tablet OS v1.0.6.
The goal of this program is to ensure that your AIR 2.7 and Flash 10.3 applications are optimized and ready for the BlackBerry Tablet OS v1.0.6 release. Please read this entire notice, as it contains key information about your participation in this program.
This program is only available to a select group of BlackBerry PlayBook developers; as such we are very interested in hearing your comments and experiences.
No word on what will come with the new update, but we can hope since it's being run by some devs first that it has some action-packed stuff to go along with it. Again - looks like only a select set of developers will be getting this, so fingers crossed for a public release soon. We'll update if we find out anything else on this one.
