Research in Motion has promised to release a major software update for the BlackBerry PlayBook this month — and now it looks like the company has picked a date: February 21st.
The folks at Berry Review note that Research in Motion mentioned the date during a webcast for game developers.
BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 will bring a number of new features to the company’s 7 inch tablet, including:
- Native email, calendar, and contact apps
- The ability to run some Android apps (which developers will have to submit to the BlackBerry App World)
- Autocorrect and predictive text
- The ability to control a PlayBook tablet from a BlackBerry smartphone
RIM may also launch new PlayBook tablets later this year, but PlayBook OS 2.0 will be aimed initially at the current 7 inch tablet with a 1 GHz TI OMAP 4 dual core processor and 1024 x 600 pixel display.
You can pick one up from the BlackBerry Store for as little as $199.
