    Just to let you all know there is a new update for the PlayBook vs 2.0.1.358...If you do not see a notification then go to Options/Software Updates/ then select the check for Updates button, you will see it. Make sure you are plugged in to the power or have a full battery (always better to ensure this in case of problems), then depending on you WiFi speed will take about 15 minutes to update, longer for slow WiFi


    Improvements:

    • Speed of Native E-mail
    • Speed of Web Browser
    • Display of certain web pages previously causing problems
    • Speed of Image Viewer
    • Optimizations to Video Chat and BlackBerry Bridge application
    • Better support of Android Apps
    • Fixed Bug causing the Android Apps to not close properly on some Playbooks
    • General Bug fixes and overal stabilization


    If you see any other changes please add to this post

    Enjoy

    One nice update in this new OS is that the keyboard now has a capslock capability. This is something that has been a little annoying up until now, it has autocorrect, word predict, user dictionary but capslock wasn't there. Now all you have to do is hold the shift key for a couple of seconds and it locks "brilliant at last!!"

    Another function some people may not be aware of: Screen capture can be accomplished by pressing the up and down volume keys at the same time.

    Finally it should be noted that at the moment the Blackberry Playbook browser is the highest rated browser for HTML5 available, better than IOS, Android, Opera 12, Explorer, Chrome etc. Pretty good for a device that is not even considered these days!!! You all should take a second look at the PlayBook!!!!
