We pulled Michael Clewly aside to have him walk us through the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0, which is set to officially release in February 2012. Michael demos the new OS, which shows off the new PIM apps that include email, calendar, contacts, and video chat.

Michael also gave us a quick look at how the new BlackBerry Remote Control and OpenOn apps work. As you can see there are many, many great new features on the way. Personally, am very hype for the release of OS 2.0. I believe it will offer functionality that will really draw more users to the PlayBook and eventually BlackBerry 10 platform. Check out the hands-on video below.
