As per my expectation & after all the rumors that RIM was all set to release the latest OS 2.1.056 beat version for all new BlackBerry PlayBook, this Beta OS is now available . RIM has introduced many changes with this release.
I’m listing few changes that are there in this beta version are –
- Enhanced HTML5 support
- Email Support
- Superior folder support including IMAP folder with Calendar & Contacts support
- Full device encryption
- Screenshots can be saved in PNG format.
- Android application runs in its window.
- Great Graphical & User Interface
- Support for many applications to work on BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet.
- In-App Payment is now supported
You would need to whitelist your BlackBerry PlayBook if you want to download this release, but few things you’ve to keep in mind like this update is only designed for Developers & not for end users because this is still in Beta version & possibilities of Bugs & crashes are there.
Note: After installing BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1 backup & restore will not be available and not all applications which work perfectly on OS 2.0.x might not work on BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1.
