For the longest time now, Blackberry Playbook users have been waiting for Android app compatibility, native email, PIM access and calendar applications to be officially released. It seems that the waiting time is over with the planned February release of this long awaited Playbook OS 2 version which will include these apps on a new QNX operating system. We believe these upgrades coupled with a $300 OFF price tag, will allow the tablet to enjoy more invigorating sales volumes.
Yet, given the RIM's numerous stumbles over this past year, this handful of free apps is a step in the right direction to win back market favor. Finally, the Blackberry Playbook — which has always been a capable, powerful tablet — is getting an OS that is more on par with its hardware. It now time to protect your device with branded tablet accessories.
