    More important than the release date, what would OS 2.1 do/add/improve?
    Hopefully it's not another security patch, for adobe flash that is.


    Hahhahahhhhahahahahahhahahahahahhahahahahahhahahah ahaha....that would suck so bad BB10 won't even heal the burnt spot.

    BlackBerry Jam Americas is next week. They have already told developers that they would be the first to see the new SDKs that include a lot of new features. It would make sense for them to target 2.1 (even if it is a new beta) and a Dev Alpha update around the same time.

    If they release the new SDK and no updates for device testing, it won't do developers much good to try and code for the new changes.

    The moon landing wasn't real?


    I feel like a fool now...
    Not to worry. They actually landed on Mars but did not want the then Soviets to know we had gotten that far!

    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"
    Darn. And I thought an update was "just around the corner." Sorry, laughing is better than getting frustrated.

    They did say 2.1 would release in the summer, and September 20th is the last day of summer. Seems possible. Also, bbempire is legit with good sources.

    Hope it does. But my best friends sister xboyfriend from high school says it will be on the 20th also. Can't argue with insiders.

    Just use the blimmin playbook rather than talking about OS updates that hardly ever happen.

    Not exactly.

    Fall starts n the Northern Hemisphere on September 22, 10:49 A.M. EDT. So RIM could release is on the 21 or even early on the 22 and still make their summer promise.

    I think it would be really funny if they released it on the 22nd at 10:48am EDT.

    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
    Tuesday has been the traditional release update day for the BlackBerry PlayBook. Thursday is too close to the weekend when support staffing levels are reduced.

    I can't connect to the update server today..... Errors out!
    Hold your horses, cowboy! The unavailability of the 'update server' is not an indicator of a pending software release as we have witnessed such temporary connection issues in the past.

    Anyways, keep your fingers ready, OS update drops tomorrow morning!
    Ah, a man/woman and his/her mind lost any basis in reality waiting for BlackBerry Tablet OS 2.1. Surely the newspaper headline will be more kind to the afflicted.

    And the .668 BLUNDER did not follow that tradition and see where it got them (at least I don't think it did).

    It is sad that we can find such continuous humor in Rim's inability to deliver anything on time. They continue to be a joke even with the new management. Releasing and pulling and stalling and refraining from explaining anything....

    If .668 did not release on a Tuesday, the irony would be delicious. Unfortunately, I do not remember the day of the week on which BlackBerry Tablet OS 2.0.1.668 was released and I am too lazy to launch Microsoft Windows and BlackBerry Desktop Software to gather the log files which might indicate the date .668 was installed on my tablet.

    That's a ridiculous rumor and you should be ashamed of yourself! Everybody knows that Jimmy Hoffa is buried in Grant's Tomb and DB Cooper is flying for Delta now. Jeesh!

    Aww come on, it's not the 20th yet.

    Did RIM give a release date or time frame for 2.1?
