RIM has just begun rolling out the latest OS update for the BlackBerry PlayBook. The latest version 188.8.131.520 brings support for Adobe Flash 10.3 and Adobe AIR 2.7. You can grab this latest PlayBook OS update by going into settings, and software updates on your tablet. Here’s a little blurb from the official BlackBerry blog:
This latest version of the BlackBerry Tablet OS includes support for Adobe® Flash® 10.3 and support for Adobe® AIR® 2.7 software. This means that with this update you should experience even better performance for Flash videos than before, and be able to access new applications that are being built with Adobe AIR 2.7 software. For all the developers out there, be sure to check out our post on the Inside BlackBerry Developer’s Blog.
Today’s update also incorporates the Adobe Flash Player updates as noted in Adobe Security BulletinsAPSB11-12 and APSB11-18, which addresses issues that can potentially affect any PC, tablet or other device with an operating system that supports Flash. While there are no known reports of any BlackBerry PlayBook tablet users being affected by these Adobe Flash issues, we (as always) encourage all BlackBerry PlayBook users to update to the newest version of the BlackBerry Tablet OS. For more information about what these security updates mean to the BlackBerry PlayBook please see our security advisory.
