Anyone who has a Playbook from RIM the same creators as BlackBerry, may have wanted OS 2.0 which was said to be released soon but that won’t be happening for a few more months. The Vice President David Smith for the Playbook said that the new OS will be delayed until February of 2012. The reason for pushing the date further back is to fix any glitch’s or technical problems they may have with the new OS. RIM wants more time to test new features and to make sure OS 2.0 has a long beta test.

Blackberry is well known for BBM (Blackberry messenger), sadly the new OS still seems to not have BBM available for use. Since each phone uses a “pin” system to add other contacts who have Blackberries and you can only have one pin, the Playbook seems to have a problem and won’t have BBM working for now. In the future that would be a great update for the Playbook.
