BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 is here, and it finally gives RIM's tablet a sorely-needed native email app.
Fujitsu, RIM and Acer made tablet news this week.
AMD is looking at tablet processors, RIM is literally giving away PlayBooks and Sony had as many as four tablets in the works in 2011. Read about it all and find out more in Tablet News Bits.
Starting today, the PlayBook is going back on sale for a limited-time offer until February 11.
Though the date hasn't been officially confirmed by RIM, rumors abound that February 17 will be the release date for the long-awaited BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 update.
RIM is working hard on a BlackBerry PlayBook revamp for early 2012, which will include the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 update in February and perhaps two new models.
RIM could be working on two new BlackBerry PlayBook models for 2012: a 7-inch 3G model and 10-inch LTE PlayBook.
There simply weren't many "new" tablets at CES 2012. Cool concepts aside, we wanted to see the future of tablets at CES 2012, and instead we got re-releases and modest product refreshes. While many tablets are promising, we are still left wanting more.
RIM is finally ready to make good on its BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 promise and detailed the specific improvements it will bring to its PlayBook tablet.
The BlackBerry PlayBook discounts continue today, as all models of the RIM tablet are now available for $299 through the company's online store, including the 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB models.
Considering all news coming out of RIM regarding the PlayBook has been bad news as of late, the arrival of Angry Birds and an update to the PlayBook Facebook app (the first designed for tablets) has to be a welcome change of pace.
In case you didn't manage to snag one on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, Research In Motion's (RIM) BlackBerry PlayBook tablet has once again gone on sale for the low, low price of $199 for the 16GB model.
