When RIM rolled out OS 2.1 for the BlackBerry PlayBook, it was not available for the 4G LTE PlayBook. However, it appears that OS 2.1 is now available.
OS 188.8.131.528 is now available through Telus, Rogers, and Bell. Users can begin hitting the “check for update” button to download. The changelog is the same as Wi-Fi version:
- Allows PIM (Messages, Calendar, Contacts) to be viewed in portrait orientation
- PIM – Deep Folder Hierarchy.
- BlackBerry Bridge will now support viewing SMS messages on the PlayBook
- Print to Go will now work across different networks
- Android apps will now be run in separate windows instead of one window for every Android app
- Android apps will now have the ability to use the PlayBook camera
- A customer will now be able to make in-app payments within Android apps
- Allows for Wi-Fi to be used for Bridge communication between two devices if they are on the same Wi-Fi network
