Research In Motion finally released today the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1 update for the WiFi-only tablet. The new update brings support for portrait view in messages, calendar, and contacts app.

Additionally, users can now send text messages via BlackBerry Bridge straight from the PlayBook. In the new update, you can even “print” documents from a PC to a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet using the Print To Go app even if the PC and tablet are connected to different networks.

Check out our quick look video of BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1 and let us know what you think of the new features. For those of you with a 4G PlayBook, sadly the update is not available. When it does become available, it will likely open up the NFC capability.
