BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1 is live, ready to update

Got the Wi-Fi only BlackBerry PlayBook? Then download PlayBook OS 2.1 right bloody now. Here are the new features we can look forward to:

Secure all data on the tablet; the enterprise-grade encryption can now be extended to secure personal data stored on the device

Text via SMS using the new version of BlackBerry Bridge (version 2.1) customers can send a text from their PlayBook through their BlackBerry smartphone; the new version of Bridge is available on BlackBerry App World.

Use the Messages, Contacts and Calendar apps in Portrait mode.

“Print” documents from a PC to a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet using the Print To Go app even if the PC and tablet are connected to different networks

Here’s how it works. PlayBook’s scattered across this crazy world of ours should be automatically hassling users to update via the little settings cog in the top right corner of the device. That’s it, get updating soldier.
