    is it going to come out ever ? Even next year?? Or 2 yrs later ?? Or it will remain in beta stage only?? I just don't get it what they r waiting for. Still doesn't matter how long it takes, being a BB fanboy (PB's to be precise) waiting eagerly for it. Getting a little impatient now.

    I guess you haven't been watching this forum. There are at least two other running threads that have asked precisely the same question and the subject has been discussed extensively. Do we really need another thread on this?

    i can see why people are frustrated (not implying anyone in this thread is frustrated, just in general)... it is just taking far too long.... wat this might mean is that 2.1 might include something that we have not been told about? and they have run into a problem during test with that feature... we should be able to enjoy 2.1 before bb10 is released.. also with iphones underwhelming 'new' device.. now is the perfect time for RIM to steal the show and come back... there really is no better time to get back in the game ... and as bb10 is delayed till q1 2013, RIM could start with regular software updates with minimal delays heres to hoping 2.1 comes before bb10...

    OS 2.1 will stay in beta mode until BB10 is released for the playbook. BB10 will be released for the phones in Q1 of 2013 and it will come to the Playbook around the end of Q3, 2013. Basically, we have to wait 1 more year until the PB receives another OS update (BB10)...Yay!!!

    We waited 1 year for OS 2.0 and we can do it again!

    People should not be frustrated. You bought devices from a company that is simply ******** and they live in another cosmic dimension where time is slower than in the rest of the world and where competitors do not exist, when it comes to updates you know that you will be stuck with the firmware version that the device came with, the solely purpose of rumours about OS updates or "amazing" apps that are around the corner is to momentarily give you the impression that you have an exciting device in your hands and your hard earned money are well spent, and finally you are doing your best to find reviews in google that will confirm your illusionary belief (or reinforce it) that BB or PB is simply the best thingy out there. When a new update will arrive, just pray that it will not make you spend your nights trying to figure out how to downgrade to the previous "working" OS version. Do not forget....RIM's favourite word is "SOON" which usually (actually always) has the meaning of "sometime in the infinite" future. Good luck and enjoy.

    By then the battery in mine will no longer hold a charge. If that is the case it will also be contract time for me. I'll see where everyone is at then.

    To me the beta is nowhere near where an official should be and if official is just like the beta I don't know that there is hope.

    That's comical.
    The topic irritates you so instead of ignoring it you read the post and reply.

    I installed the 2.1 beta. So far I haven't had any problems.

    Who cares if there's another thread on it?! What else is there to write about? How RIM can't deliver on time? How the PlayBook is basically a great piece of hardware with an absolute awful ecosystem?

    Seriously... Let the man thread about whatever he wants to. Again, This place is so full of negative feedback.

    I think that the problem is that every week we are reminded of just how far behind RIM is in so many areas. Where are the useful apps for the PlayBook? When will there be a cross platform video chat app? Better bookmark management?

    I don't know why so many people on here get so bent outta shape over people wanting to know what is going on.

    This is why Apple is the leader. They make HUGE deals and events that people just go nuts over. I read yesterday so many stupid and ignorant comments about how BB10 was going to blow the iPhone out of the water and all I could think about was,"When?" By the time RIM releases BB10 Apple will have yet another product that is more likely to succeed or another Android device will be available with Everything on it. WAKE UP RIM!!! The coffee and the toast is burning while the ship is sinking...

    The BB10 Kool Aid is pretty weak if you ask me. Still watching Kindle, Android & Apple going Strong...

    BTW, this is being written on my PlayBook.

    I just installed it a couple of days ago so yes it is still available.
    I tried to get it a couple of months ago. At that time I never received an update notice.

    Also encouraged and highly recommended is using the "search button" to check for similar threads before you start you own. That saves the Mods loads of time.
