BlackBerry's PlayBook 2.0 OS has been delayed by over two months but now but it looks as though it will finally be making its way to the BB Tablet

The BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 update will potentially be launched on 21 February, providing BlackBerry PlayBook users with a whole host of new features for their tablet.

BlackBerry news site N4BB received the date from what it believes are reliable sources, and with BlackBerry themselves confirming the software release for February it could well prove to be true.

 

This news had come just a few months after RIM confirmed that they would have to delay their BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 OS till February of next year.

The news was announced on the official BlackBerry Blog in which BlackBerry's SVP for BlackBerry PlayBook David Smith made a formal announcment about the delay and the reasons why.

"As much as we’d love to have it in your hands today, we’ve made the difficult decision to wait to launch BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 until we are confident we have fully met the expectations of our developers, enterprise customers and end-users."

At present PlayBook owners can only access features such as mail, messaging and calendar by connecting the PlayBook to a BlackBerry smartphone.

The new OS will add native forms of these functions letting it become truly competitive with a market of tablets that already have these functions.
