BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1 Beta Release Date Is Today

Michael Clewley who is RIM’s PlayBook product manager likes to take some time and answer to various questions of his Twitter followers who are interested in BlackBerry novelties. When asked about the release date of the beta version of the 2.1 PlayBook OS, he said that the update will be available to developers at the end of May.

So, the company wants to release the software at the end of May. Considering that today is May 31 (the last day of the month), we should expect the beta version of the 2.1 PlayBook OS in the next couple of hours.

The company has been testing all sorts of builds for version 2.1 for the PlayBook OS update for some time now. However, no clear details have been revealed about the actual content of the update. I remember when RIM released the PlayBook 2.0 update. It was quite large which brought some new features such as a native email client and also added the ability to run Android applications. According to Michael Clewley’s tweets, the details about the 2.1 update will offered in the blog post when it’s available, so there won’t be much time until we know more about the software.

The BlackBerry PlayBook is an interesting tablet featuring a 7-inch display with a resolution of 600 x 1024 pixels and a 170 ppi pixel density. The device is powered by a dual-core 1GHz Cortex-A9 processor and has 1GB of RAM. The storage capacity is different depending on what model you buy being 16, 32 or 64 GB. The primary camera of the BlackBerry PlayBook has 5 MP, 2592 x 1944 pixels and autofocus and the secondary is a 3 MP 1080p shooter.
