Over in BlackBerry Beta Zone, John, a BlackBerry Project Manager, started a thread to let users know of an upcoming PlayBook OS update. The new PlayBook OS update won’t bring any of the new features users have been hoping for. RIM is apparently saving those for the big release of OS 2.0 in February. Although, RIM is looking to release this update within a few weeks and here’s what it will bring:

  • Daylight Savings Time: updated some time zones
  • Updated Bluetooth and Wi-Fi drivers improving co-existence and connectivity
  • BlackBerry App World account payments reliability improvements
  • Improvements to VPN connection reliability
  • Addressed some scenarios where BlackBerry Desktop Software would not restore applications to the PlayBook
There’s no word on the last Adobe Flash Player 11.1, but we’re sure RIM will add that in soon.  Will you likely update your PlayBook (if not on OS 2.0), or hold out until the big release in February?
