Blackberry Playbook Receives OS Update to v1.0.7

The Blackberry Blog has just announced the Playbook OS has been updated to v1.0.7 which is available now to all Playbook owners via the Settings –> Software Updates menu.

The update provides several new features.

  • Improved connectivity & productivity with the BlackBerry Bridge application – Enhanced Support for Saving Attachments and support for .zip attachments
  • Additional Multimedia features – Portrait support for pictures, pinch to zoom in video
  • Additional language support

Also new is that BBC News and BBC iPlayer shortcuts will be pre-installed by default on the Playbook. The BBC’s Director of Future Media, Ralph Rivera said:

I’m pleased to announce today the launch of BBC News and BBC iPlayer web icons (shortcuts) on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. From today, all new BlackBerry PlayBook tablets will come with the web icons pre-installed. The addition of these web icons provides more convenient access to BBC News and a wealth of BBC programmes on demand.

This is a welcome update, but its clear from the comments RIM needs to be focussing on more important updates like native email functionality, integrated Twitter/Facebook options and third party Apps like Kindle and games.
