    BlackBerry Empire has a post stating "It has been a while since the BlackBerry PlayBook OS has gotten an official update, but rumors swirling around say that we should be expecting PlayBook OS v2.1 on September 20th."

    I don't give much credit to other sites, so has anybody around here heard such a thing?!?

    BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1 To be Released September 20th? - BlackBerry Empire

    On a Thursday? Surely that's hopes and dreams smashed right there. Don't get me wrong, an official OS would be great, but unless we're all shocked tomorrow, (my later tonight by the way) I think this is just smoke and mirrors.

    Here we go again. Like the rumor, most things that are 'swirling around' just end up flushing. Just sayin'

    If Rim is planning a feature-rich launch of 2.1 to help move phones and tablets as paired devices, the 20th would be an excellent day.

    Long enough after the iPhone launch, but just prior to the actual release date.

    New features that make iOS on the new iPhone look dated before its even been released would be clever.

    A rumor based on the Italian release of the 4G Playbook seems highly unlikely. I wish it were true, but I think we're more likely to see 2.1 drop in October - late October at that.

    That way you have an event to showacse the features instead of just releasing the update with nothing other than changelog.

    With all the added features I doubt it is coming out this week or even next week. There was plenty of signs that 2.0 was coming. Only rumor thus far for 2.1.

    Id say a 2.1 beta being available makes it a bit more real than just rumor...besides deep down we all know its coming..."SOON"

    How many times have we heard this before ten times? More? Sometimes I sit down and wonder if RIM likes to start rumors prior to a big release just to **** with us lol.

    Can't believe how long this 2.1 release has taken, especially considering how bad 2.0 is...

    Remember when Bla1ze said the build # was up to 2.1.0.970.. That was a while back and they can't go much higher without hitting 2.2, so I think a release is pending/SOON...

    Why not?
    You can go
    2.1.0.1899
    Then
    2.1.0.2364
    etc.
    Then of course you have
    2.1.1.364

    Anyways, keep your fingers ready, any day now.
