The PlayBook OS updated this morning, that was even sooner than I had anticipated to see it. You must have v188.8.131.5270 installed to be able to install the latest update. Inside BlackBerry has the changelog and details on what we can expect from this latest update for our BlackBerry PlayBooks.
Inside BlackBerry explains that the differential updates allows you to only update the sections of the OS that need updating. This boils down to smaller updates in file size and faster updates for us. Especially with the new features coming to the BlackBerry PlayBook later this year. Along with the differential updates, the following features were also updated:
- Improved Wi-Fi® connectivity to WEP networks
- Faster pairing between a BlackBerry smartphone and BlackBerry PlayBook tablet via the BlackBerry® Bridge™ app, and faster attachment opening via BlackBerry Bridge.
