RIM BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 Installations Rise 44% After Release
Here's something that Google and all its' Android manufacturers can take a note from on how to get the latest software installed on machines as soon as possible. Android users often find the most frustrating part of having an Android device is that they need to wait for 3 different layers of companies to complete an update before it's released to the public. That process has always been a thorn in Android users' sides.
Research In Motion released the BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 operating system update February 21st 2012 and it's seen a huge installation increase over the past week as a result of PlayBook owners being very satisfied with the upgrade features. Over 44% of PlayBooks have already installed the update, and according to Chitika (who provided the research metrics), this should increase to over 75% within the next two weeks. Android users WISH they could grab the latest OS update that fast, for their smartphones or tablets.
Among the main improvements to the PlayBook 2.0 OS are integrated email, calendar and contact apps. Part of those include account integration for Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter for social networking messaging and notifications. An Android player has been made available which runs in the background of the OS, and comes to life when you download and install an Android application from the BlackBerry App World. Other improvements to the UI have been made such as the ability to place apps into created folders for organization as opposed to the default tab organizers in PlayBook 1.0.
If you have a PlayBook and haven't grabbed the update, you should do it fast. You won't be disappointed in any way when you do!
